Randy Orton vs. Brock Lesnar match was advertised as 15 years in the making. It was the main event for this year’s WWE Summerslam PPV.
Since that match came out as a no contest, we were bound to get a rematch. So as expected, WWE Raw came up with a house show at the All State arena in Chicago, Illinois, last night.
Prior to the match, Brock Lesnar along with Paul Heyman cut a promo. Heyman suggested that a normal match against the beast was not good enough, so the match was arranged as a “Suplex City Death Match”, with no disqualifications or count-outs or any stopping under any condition.
Randy Orton appeared to deliver a sneak attack to the beast with a steel chair in his hands. At one point, it looked that Orton would get an upper hand when he countered an F-5 to an RKO.
However, in the end, the beast prevailed, as always. He ended the match with his pendant F-5. This match too was covered with blood at the end.
Here are the complete results of the live event from Chicago.
(1) Sasha Banks, Bayley, and Alicia Fox defeated Nia Jax, Dana Brooke & Charlotte. Emma appeared as the special guest referee for the match.
