Hell in a Cell Match for the RAW Women’s Championship: Charlotte Flair defeated Sasha Banks (C) to win the title

Charlotte regained the RAW Women’s Championship for the third time after rag dolling Sasha Banks onto a table (it didn’t break) before hitting Natural Selection. Because there was no big stunt before the pin, it came off as an abrupt and flat ending to an otherwise good Hell in a Cell match. The match started out with an homage to the Undertaker/Mankind Hell in a Cell match with Banks getting seemingly removed and stretchered out of the match after Flair attacked her before the bell, ultimately driving her through an announce table with a power bomb. Like Foley, Sasha rolled off the stretcher and the match was on. While the action was good, several big moments didn’t go as planned. In one spot, Charlotte fell from the apron onto a table that collapsed but didn’t break and near the finish Sasha was thrown onto the table twice with the table staying intact both times. The ending didn’t feel like a blow-off but my hope is they let these two move on to other rivalries for the near future.

The Morning Roundup 10/10/16: No Mercy

No Mercy Results – WWE

Luke Harper returned to distract Randy Orton long enough for Bray Wyatt to nail him with Sister Abigail and score a victory over the Viper in the show-closing match of No Mercy.  Why didn’t I call it the main event you ask? Because WWE opened last night’s event with the match labeled “The Main Event”, as AJ Styles defeated John Cena & Dean Ambrose by pinning Cena after a chair shot. Earlier in the match, Styles tapped to a double submission by Ambrose and Cena, causing the referee to restart the match. And in the other standout match of the evening, Dolph Ziggler captured his 5th Intercontinental Championship, keeping his career going in the process, against The Miz. Another solid show all around for the blue brand.

Lynch Pulled from No Mercy – Cageside Seats

Becky Lynch did not defend her Women’s Championship as scheduled due to an undisclosed medical reason that is not in-ring related and not serious. Her match with Alexa Bliss has been rescheduled for the November 8th Smackdown Live in Glasgow, Scotland.

WWE SummerSlam & NXT Takeover Results

Universal

Two of the biggest events of the WWE calendar took over Brooklyn, NY this weekend, let’s run through the results, and get you ready for 7 more hours of WWE action this week.

WWE SummerSlam

-Brock Lesnar defeated Randy Orton via TKO

Well, on the bright side, it doesn’t get much more definitive than a knockout victory.  On the down side, this match ending was shockingly abrupt for a PPV main event.

Lesnar won the match after Orton kicked out of an F5 near fall, causing Lesnar to snap and mount Orton for some ground and pound.  After catching Orton with an elbow strike, blood began to pour from the Viper’s head onto the canvas as he lay motionless.  After being checked on by doctors and some more ground and pound, the match was stopped.   Following the match Shane McMahon confronted Lesnar, eating an F5 into the pool of Orton’s blood.

It was certainly a unique and “real” finish but not sure something that should be the culmination of a weekend of events and a 6 hour show.  I would have preferred something more feel good to wrap things up, be it Rollins/Bálor’s to push the importance of the Universal Title, AJ Styles’ win over John Cena to send the “smarky” crowd home happy, or Dean Ambrose’s win to keep up the idea that SmackDown’s championship is important.
