Brock Lesnar comes out to the ring

Brock Lesnar received a great ovation as he made his way to the ring. Lesnar called Roman Reigns a hog and said that he loves slaughtering hogs. The ‘tribal hog’ would be handed a slaughtering at SummerSlam. Paul Heyman came out to the stage area. Heyman said that a betting man would put his money on Brock Lesnar as he steps into the ring with Roman Reigns. He said Lesnar doesn’t care whether he sends Reigns to a hospital or a morgue. However, Heyman will prepare Reigns in such a way that Lesnar won’t have a chance to break Reigns’ streak.

Theory came out to the stage area and said that he will win back the United States Championship at SummerSlam and then he will watch the Lesnar vs Reigns match and after it ends, he would walk out to the ring and win the world championship. Theory said that Heyman was right about Lesnar as he doesn’t care about anyone else but himself. The youngster showed footage from the men’s Elimination Chamber match where Lesnar had dropped him with an F5 from over the top of a pod.

Otis made his way to the ring. Gable took out Lesnar’s leg and the Alpha Academy tried to unleash an assault on the former WWE Champion. However, Lesnar took control of the proceedings using suplexes, and steel steps, and eventually delivered an F5 to Otis through the announce table.

Finn Balor versus Rey Mysterio

In the ring, before the match, Damian Priest once again offered a chance to Dominik Mysterio to join The Judgement Day. Balor called Rey Mysterio a terrible leader and a terrible father. Rey and Dom attacked Balor and Priest before the match got underway.

As the match got underway, Balor was in total control. Rey could hardly muster up any offense. Rey found some leeway and made his way to the top rope. However, Balor got up and dropped him and it seemed Rey injured his knee in the process. Balor focused his attack on the injured knee. Rey came back as he delivered a rolling powerbomb to Balor, sending the Prince into the barricade.

Mysterio hit a breathtaking hurricanrana off the top rope. The veteran followed it up with the 619. However, he missed Frog Splash. Balor took advantage and eventually ended the match with a Coup de Grace. Dom came into the ring to check on his father. Balor and Priest looked at him with keen interest as Dom joining The Judgement Day was further teased.

Winner – Finn Balor

Becky Lynch came out to ringside. She stood up on the announce table and cut a promo. She said she was upset at not winning the Money in the Bank ladder match but later she realized that the way Liv Morgan cashed in and won the SmackDown Women’s Championship was like winning a lottery and she doesn’t want to win lotteries. Big Time Becks works her ass off every week to earn a paycheck. She said she should have been given a rematch on the RAW after WrestleMania but instead she has been made to go through numerous challenges to get a one-on-one opportunity to win back the RAW Women’s Championship.

However, the former SmackDown Women’s Champion Carmella hit a Superkick but all she got was a 2 count. Belair attempted the KOD but Carmella countered and dropped her opponent face-first onto the mat.

Belair hit a Spinebuster for a near fall. She went up on the top rope but Carmella rolled out of the ring. Carmella was sent into the ring post. Belair sent Carmella back into the ring. However, as she was about to enter, Lynch stopped her in her tracks. Belair got distracted and got counted out.
