WWE SummerSlam 2022

Date:
July 30, 2022
Location:
Nissan Stadium in Nashville, Tennessee

Highlights:

  • In the main event, Brock Lesnar lifted the ring high in the air with a tractor. Theory attempted to cash in his Money in the Bank contract, but Lesnar’s F-5 put a stop to that. It took the combined effort of The Bloodline to keep him down in the Last Man Standing.
  • At the end of the SmackDown Women’s Championship match, Liv Morgan tapped just before Ronda Rousey took a pinfall loss, but the referee did not see this. Rousey was so frustrated she attacked Liv Morgan and the referee.
  • Riddle was not cleared to compete, so his match with Seth Rollins was postponed. He entered the ring to call out Seth Rollins, but this backfired as he took a Curb Stomp before officials could split them up.
  • Edge returned during the tag team match between The Mysterios and The Judgment Day. Sporting a new “Brood” look, he exacted his revenge on those who kicked him out of his stable and therefore helped The Mysterios get the win.
  • Following the Raw Women’s Championship match, Becky Lynch extended her hand to Bianca Belair. They shook hands and hugged out of respect to end their rivalry.
  • Bayley made her long-awaited return, but she did not come alone. Dakota Kai, who had been released from WWE for a while, made her main roster debut and joined her. NXT’s Io Shirai (now going by IYO SKY) made her main roster debut by joining Bayley & Kai to form a new stable. They thought about attacking Belair, but once Becky Lynch joined her side, they thought better of it and walked away.
  • This was the first WWE Premium Live Event of the modern era not to be headed by Vince McMahon.
