Becky Lynch def. Bianca Belair via pinfall to win the title: Becky Lynch returned to WWE at Summerslam, replacing Sasha Banks to win the Smackdown Women’s Title. Banks was a no-show at tonight’s PPV and Bianca Belair ended up defending her Smackdown Women’s Championship against Lynch, who made her return to WWE and received a huge ovation from the Las Vegas crowd. Lynch challenged Belair on the spot for a title match, which the champion accepted but the match was underwhelming as Lynch laid out Belair in less than a minute and won the title.
Edge def. Seth Rollins via submission: Edge and Seth Rollins put up the best match of the night. Both guys worked hard and had a great contest. Edge busted out a lot of his classic moves including the Edge-a-cution, the Edge-a-cator, and the Edge-o-matic. Rollins also went toe-to-toe and countered a spear into a Pedrigee. Edge eventually won with a modified crossface as Rollins tapped out.
But what also caught the attention of fans on social media was Adam Copeland back as Brood-era Edge. He got the Brood music and entrance and everything that received a massive pop in the arena.
