WWE Summerslam 2019: Seth Shocks Beast; Bray Brilliantly Booked

WWE Summerslam 2019 has Seth Rollins shocking the Beast Brock Lesnar again. Bray Wyatt is brilliantly booked. KOP breaks down the outcomes.

WWE Summerslam 2019

Aside from the brilliant booking of Bray Wyatt WWE Summerslam 2019 and Seth reclaiming the Universal title, storylines had a bit more substance than most pay-per-views.

WWE has started the changes that Paul Heyman has instituted. The card with hall of fame stars and veterans helped. This is all part of WWE rebuilding its main roster.

WWE Summerslam 2019 will pale in comparison to the Christmas-like Wrestlemania back in April. WWE must continue to build new main eventers in time for October. For that Summerslam had to stay static, and the crowd won’t like it.
