Brock Lesnar defended his Universal title in a Fatal Four Way in SummerSlam’s main event. Who walked away from the Barclays Center with the belt?

Brock Lesnar had a ton of potential opponents for SummerSlam, so many that RAW General Manager decided to throw them all together for a Fatal Four Way for the Universal title in the main event of The Biggest Party of the Summer.

With Roman Reigns, Samoa Joe and Braun Strowman all having a case for a title shot, Angle made things easy and gave them all one, much to the chagrin of Lesnar and his advocate Paul Heyman. The decision angered the duo so much that Heyman said Lesnar would leave WWE if the match didn’t go in his favor.

Things finally came to a head at SummerSlam on Sunday night, with the four going to battle in the night’s main event at the Barclays Center.

After the three challengers made their way to the ring, it was finally time for business to pick up and for pain to officially enter the building.

The action picked up quickly after a couple of teases for different battles for Lesnar with Reigns and Strowman. Eventually, Strowman and Lesnar went at it, with Lesnar getting speared through the barricade and powerslammed through an announcer’s table by Strowman.

Strowman even busted out his favorite weapon, a desk chair, to launch at Joe and Reigns at ringside after he slammed the Universal Champion.

As if the first time wasn’t enough, Strowman decided to clear out another table, slamming The Beast Incarnate once more through a table at ringside.

With one more announcer’s table still to go, Strowman decided to flip the entire table over the fallen Lesnar to finish the champion off at ringside, with doctors then tending to The Beast immediately after.

After all of the carnage eventually settled down, Strowman took down Reigns and Joe in the ring with relative ease, despite getting busted open. However, Lesnar quickly returned before Strowman could do any more damage to anyone else, despite the requests of the medical staff, who were urging him to stay away from the ring.

Despite all of the setbacks and the physical punishment, Lesnar eventually caught Reigns with an F5 after reversing a spear from the Big Dog, and picked up the win in a match similar to his title defense back at the Royal Rumble in 2015.

The match did not disappoint at all, especially after a lackluster card up until that point, and Strowman looked very strong throughout with his overall dominance. In the end, The Beast Incarnate was just too strong for the rest of the field to take down, no matter how hard they tried.
