Things kicked off with the Raw Women’s Championship match between Bianca Belair and Becky Lynch. These two go back to last year’s Summerslam when Lynch returned after a year and defeated Belair for the title. The crowd was hot from the start of this match. As expected, these two put on a good match. Lynch was aggressive in her efforts of getting her championship back. Belair brought her A-game seeing her home-state crowd was firmly behind her. There were times it seems like Lynch was going to beat Belair again at Summerslam. It looked like Lynch was going to hit the Manhandle Slam from the second rope, but Bianca reversed it into a Spanish Fly. Belair hit the KOD to retain her title. Winner and Still Raw Women’s Champ: Bianca Belair

Match Rating: 4.5/5- After shaking hands, Lynch rolled out of the ring. While Bianca was celebrating, the music of Bayley hit, and she finally returned after a year from her knee injury. Bayley was joined by Io Shirai and Dakota Kai. They hit the ring to confront Belair, but Lynch returned to the ring to align with Bianca. Great match and segment and Bayley’s return along with main roster debuts of Shirai & Kai is why its rated so high.

We had the Miz taking on his former partner Logan Paul in this contest. Miz and Paul defeated the Mysterios at WrestleMania, but Miz turned on him after the match. Logan Paul signed an actual contract with the WWE and called out the Miz afterwards. Let’s say that Logan Paul looked great in the ring at WrestleMania and Summerslam. This time he was in singles competition where he has shown great athleticism in the ring. Miz and Paul went after each other in this match, and we saw Ciampa involving himself. When the referee tried to throw him out, Ciampa wouldn’t leave so A.J. Styles attacked Ciampa. This led to Paul hitting a huge splash on Miz from the top rope to the announce table. Paul hit Miz with his Skull Crushing Finale for the win. Winner: Logan Paul

Match rating: 3.5/5

We had a rematch from the Money in the Bank event from last month. Bobby Lashley defended his United States championship against former champion Theory. The crowd has really been behind Lashley lately and theory continues to flourish before our eyes. Theory attacked Lashley with the briefcase before the bell rang. When the match started, these two went at each other and the crowd was hot. Theory continues to impress and Lashley was up on his game also. This match was much shorter than the previous one and wasn’t as good. Lashley locked in the Hurt Lock after catching Theory in the air on an attempted dropkick. Winner and Still United States Champ: Bobby Lashley

Match Rating: 3/5

We had the Mysterios battling Judgement Day in a No-DQ match. After turning on Edge, the Judgement Day tried recruiting Dominik Mysterio while making Rey’s life a living hell. Rhea Ripley finally returned a couple weeks ago to continue to give Judgement Day the advantage. This match was highly contested with both teams getting a fair amount of offense. The crowd was still hot during this match. It seems like Judgement Day has lost some of its luster, but Ripley’s return could help. It still amazes me how great Rey looks in the ring seeing how long he’s been wrestling and in the WWE for 20 years. Edge made his return during the match and help the Mysterios pick up the win. Winners: The Mysterios

Match Rating: 3/5- Great to see Edge return and his entrance was great.

This one saw two former roommates when they were rookies for the Indianapolis Colts. Pat McAfee took on Happy Corbin in a much-anticipated match. These two have been feuding for a while and Corbin has attacked McAfee on a couple occasions. Corbin is very underrated in the ring and McAfee has showed he’s nice in the ring in the two matches he’s had. McAfee had a choir cheering “Bum Ass Corbin” when Corbin made his entrance. The match was good, and the crowd was firmly behind McAfee the entire match. After a highly contested contest, McAfee turned the tables on Corbin. After a referee bump, McAfee kicked Corbin in the groin like Corbin did him on Smackdown. This allowed McAfee hit a sunset flip on Corbin for the pin. Winner: Pat McAfee

Match Rating: 3.25/5

We had the rematch for the Unified WWE Tag team championships. The Usos battled the Street Profits after putting on a classic last month at Money in the Bank. With the controversial finish of their match last month, Jeff Jarrett was announced as the special guest referee. There have been rumors that the Street Profits could be breaking up soon. Once again, these guys put on an entertaining match, but it didn’t top their previous match. Jeff Jarrett called the match down the middle like he said also. There were a couple instances where it looked like the Profits were going to capture the titles. In the end, the Usos hit the 1-D on Dawkins for the win. Winners and Still Unified WWE Tag Champs: The Usos

Match Rating: 3.75/5- It looks like we may see Montez Ford turn heel soon. Ford has been showing more aggression lately and his look after the match says a lot. The cameras were paying close attention to him afterwards.

Liv Morgan put up her Smackdown Women’s Championship against former champ, Ronda Rousey. Morgan cashed in her Money in the Bank briefcase on Rousey after her match against Natalya. Rousey seems like she’s teasing a heel turn with her actions lately. Rousey was aggressive from the start of the match, hurting Morgan’s arm in the process. Morgan got very little offense in the match as Rousey almost made her submit several times. In the end, Rousey was clutching on the injured arm and Liv rolled her up. The referee counted three on Rousey, but Morgan was tapping but he didn’t see it. Winner and Still Champ: Liv Morgan

Match Rating: 2.5/5- After the match, Rousey attacked Liv and the referee as the officials told her to quit.

We finally had the main event as Roman Reigns defending the Unified Universal WWE Championship against Brock Lesnar. Lesnar came to the ring riding a tractor which was crazy. Speaking of crazy, this match was a train wreck, but in an amazing way. This match had everything and more. They beat the hell out of each other, Lesnar used the tractor to move and lift the ring with Reigns in it. While there was carnage on the outside, Theory tried to cash in his briefcase. Theory knocked out Reigns with the briefcase but was caught by Brock with an F-5. In the end, Reigns laid out Lesnar with multiple shots to the head with the championship belts. Reigns and the Usos threw the announce table, steel steps and chairs on top of Lesnar and Reigns stood on it to secure the win. Winner and Still Unified Universal WWE Champ: Roman Reigns
