The match sees Kingston get the victory for his team, when he takes advantage of O’Neil’s Clash of the Titus to one member of Los Matadores and his own status as the legal man due to having quietly tagged himself in shortly before, as he covers the Los Matadores member for the 3-count for The New Day to become the new WWE Tag Team Champions.

The match sees Rollins get the victory, when Jon Stewart appears and hits Cena with a steel chair while the referee is knocked out, which allows Rollins to follow it up with a Pedigree onto the chair, get rid of the evidence before the referee is revived, and cover Cena for the 3-count to retain his own title and become the new United States Champion.
After checking in with the SummerSlam Panel (comprised of Renee Young, WWE Hall of Famer Booker T, Byron Saxton and Corey Graves) on their thoughts on the matches that have taken place and are yet to come, and a video recapping the events that led to the upcoming match, including the promotions of Charlotte, Becky Lynch and Sasha Banks to the main roster, “Team Bella” Alicia Fox, Brie Bella and Nikki Bella, “Team B.A.D” Naomi, Tamina Snuka and Sasha Banks, and “Team PCB” Paige, Charlotte and Becky Lynch face each other in a Three Team Elimination match.

After a video recapping the match between Finn Bálor and Kevin Owens on NXT TakeOver the night before, Cesaro goes against Kevin Owens in a match which sees Owens get the victory when he hits Cesaro with the Pop-Up Powerbomb for the 3-count.
After a video recapping the events that led to the upcoming match, Brock Lesnar (accompanied by Paul Heyman) takes on The Undertaker in a match which sees the bell get rung by the timekeeper without the referee saying so as it is claimed that Undertaker tapped out.
As Lesnar releases his hold and starts to celebrate in the belief that he has won the match, Undertaker takes advantage of the resulting confusion and distraction of referee Charles Robinson and hits Lesnar with a low blow from behind.
Undertaker gets the victory when he follows things up by applying the Hell’s Gate to Lesnar, and Lesnar extends his middle finger towards The Undertaker before passing out, prompting the referee to call for the bell.
Replays show that The Undertaker did indeed tap out earlier, so Paul Heyman refuses to acknowledge the official ending to the match. Heyman rings the bell and grabs a microphone as he says that everyone except the referee saw that Undertaker tapped out, so Heyman declares Brock Lesnar as the winner as a result of a disqualification.
More replays are shown before a confused-looking Brock Lesnar and angry Paul Heyman stand by the entrance as SummerSlam goes off the air.
