SummerSlam 2020 is the second biggest event of the year after Wrestlemania in WWE’s calendar and it produced some exciting results.
Asuka had the opportunity to win the SmackDown and Raw titles on the same night when she faced Bayley and Sasha Banks.
The Japanese star lost her match with Bayley with the help of her best friend Sasha but the former champion bounced back to defeat The Boss to become the new Raw women’s champion.
Bayley did not reciprocate the help she got from Sasha earlier on the night and the long term friendship between the women’s tag team champions is now on the line.
The match between another set of pals saw Mandy Rose beat Sonya Deville in a non-disqualification Loser Leaves WWE match.
Deville was eventually sent packing from the WWE roaster after losing her match to her former best friend Rose.
Montez Ford and Angelo Dawkin (The Street Profits) retained their WWE Raw tag team championship after defeating Andrade and Angel Gaza.
Son of legendary wrestler Rey Mysterio, Dominik, made his pay-per-view debut in SummerSlam in a Street Fight contest with former Raw champion Seth Rollins.
The Aerialist emerged victorious over the young wrestler Dominik who would need to fit into the shoes of his father in the coming years.
Scottish Psychopath Drew McIntyre retained his WWE title in a tough match with the future Hall of Famer Randy Orton.
It is McIntyre’s successful third defence of his belt on a pay-per-view event since capturing it from Brock Lesnar in the last Wrestlemania.
Apollo Crews also retained his United States championship after recording a 1-2-3 count over veteran wrestler MVP.
The main event of the evening saw The Fiend Bray Wyatt recapture his SmackDown title from Braun Strowman.
But as the demon was celebrating his victory, Roman Reigns stormed into the ring and delivered a spear into the newly-crowned champion.
The Big Dog did not stop there as he also speared The Monster Among Men to announce his arrival into the squared circle since the global pandemic.
Meanwhile, Legit.ng had earlier reported that the wrestling world is in mourning following the tragic death of ring legend “Mr. Wrestling II” Johnny Walker.

“Sad news to report. Johnnie Walker aka Mr. Wrestling II passed away yesterday in Hawaii,” Cauliflower Alley Club said in a tweet.
