With Brock Lesnar seething next to him, Paul Heyman recounted the controversial finish of SummerSlam's main event. He replayed the footage of The Undertaker tapping out and explained that he had no issue with the referee or the timekeeper for their parts in this situation, reports Ryan Dilbert of Bleacher Report.

He simply wanted to inform people that The Undertaker's immortality is a fable and that his client wanted to take on The Deadman then and there in Brooklyn.

Bo Dallas came out instead. His usual condescending shtick served to only poke the bear. A smirking Lesnar clobbered Dallas. He then flung the former NXT champ around the ring with a series of suplexes. Heyman kept asking The Beast Incarnate to keep re-entering the ring to continue to torture Dallas.

The New Day vs The Lucha Dragons

The Prime Time Players sat in on commentary, forced to watch the men who dethroned them Sunday in action.

Xavier Woods played the trombone as Big E and Kofi Kingston sang a self-congratulatory song. Of course, the heel trio took a few shots at the host city. Their mood soon changed, though, as Kalisto and Sin Cara had them reeling with their high-flying offense.

After the commercial break, Big E and Kingston regained control. They finished off The Lucha Dragons with ease.

The Dudley Boyz then stormed out, whipping the tag team champs while the crowd roared. After leaving Woods out cold, Bubba Ray and Devon jawed with The Prime Time Players.

 

Roman Reigns and Dean Ambrose vs Luke Harper and Bray Wyatt

The SummerSlam rematch began with Roman Reigns and Dean Ambrose slamming their feet on the gas. They charged around the ring, bashing into Luke Harper and Bray Wyatt.

The Wyatt Family returned the favor. They clubbed Ambrose in their corner, slowing the contest into a slugfest.

When Reigns eventually tagged in, the match quickened and grew chaotic. Hard strikes echoed through the arena; bodies flew from rope to rope.

The lights went off, and a bearded behemoth in a sheep mask appeared. The big man laid out both Reigns and Ambrose.

Miz TV with PCB

Becky Lynch, Charlotte and Paige talked up their SummerSlam victory. The Miz questioned whether there is tension between the members of the group.

Team Bella came out to cut the celebration short. Tension flared up quickly as The Bellas and Alicia Fox mocked their rivals and dismissed their accomplishments.

As PCB closed in on The Miz to make him pay for insulting them, the Bellas attacked them. A mild brawl ensued.

The Divas champion found herself in defensive mode early. Becky Lynch, Charlotte and Paige took turns grappling with Nikki Bella.

PCB remained dominant for much of the match. Charlotte briefly found herself in the wrong corner, but Paige soon took back control for her team.

The restless crowd wasn't interested in much of it.

Nikki landed a forearm to Paige behind the referee's back. That allowed Alicia Fox to get the pin.

Stardust assaults King Barrett

It looked as if Stardust were going to team up with King Barrett again. Instead, The Prince of Dark Matter attacked his ally.

Neville soon rushed in. He kicked Stardust dizzy and readied the Red Arrow, but Stardust darted out of the ring.

Jon Stewart explains why he attacked John Cena

Jon Stewart told fans that he attacked John Cena at SummerSlam to prevent him from tying Ric Flair's record for the most world title reigns. The Nature Boy himself soon came out, saying that he was pulling for Cena.

Randy Orton, Ryback, Cesaro and Dolph Ziggler vs Rusev, Kevin Owens, Sheamus and Big Show

The eight rivals stared one another down outside the ring before getting down to business. The heels swarmed on Ziggler, keeping him grimacing as they took turns clocking him.

Lana and Summer Rae brawled outside the ring, which distracted Rusev and incited the crowd.

Rusev and Owens slugged it out. Orton tangled with Sheamus.

An errant knockout punch from Big Show and an RKO from The Viper allowed the babyfaces to grab the win. Owens and Rusev, angry with Big Show's error, teamed up to beat him down. The giant then took a beating from the good guys as well.

After singing an off-key rendition of "Happy Birthday!" to Vince McMahon, The Authority talked up Rollins' accomplishments. Rollins soon arrived, comparing himself to Mickey Mantle and Babe Ruth. He trashed Cena before the drumroll hit.

 

Sting stood under the black curtain, with no statue in sight. The Stinger attacked the champ as The Authority scampered away.
