WWE CHAMPIONSHIP - AJ STYLES VS SAMOA JOE
Joe came out first. The announcers talked about Joe’s mind games and called them despicable. During ring intros, Styles and Joe jawed at each other the whole time. Graves said Joe is definitely in Style’s head. The bell rang and Styles charged at Joe and took it to him with forearms and punches at the start. No collar and elbow hookup this time. Joe ended up fighting back with some of his signature jabs. Styles dropkicked Joe to stop his comeback. Joe regrouped at ringside. Styles threw Joe head-first into the announce table. He slidekicked him next. Graves said Styles is fighting for his family, but questioned whether he could sustain his intensity and emotional state. Styles went for an early Phenomenal Forearm, but Joe rolled to the floor. The ref told Styles to keep it in the ring. That brief delay gave Joe time to recover, as he kicked Styles when Styles went for a slingshot dive onto Joe. Styles clutched his knee. Joe kicked Styles and threw him into the ringside steps. Styles flip-bumped to the floor.
Back in the ring Joe took over, knocking Styles down with a hard chop to the chest. Joe face washed Styles and then delivered a running boot to the Styles as he was lying in a corner of the ring. Graves said Styles appears to have run out of gas, a callback to his concern earlier that Styles was going to run out of steam at the early pace he set. With Styles at ringside, Joe flew at Styles with a serious-business elbow to the side of his head. Styles bumped hard into the announce table and then didn’t move. Joe picked him up and threw him back into the ring and made a cover for a two count. Joe settled into a head twist mid-ring.
Styles eventually fought back and hit a charging Joe with an elbow and then landed an inverted DDT for a near fall.

Styles crawled over to the bottom rope to force a break. Styles avoided a charging Joe, then turned and hit a hard chop and round kick. Then he lifted Joe onto his shoulders and put him in a torture rack and then spun out into a powerbomb for a near fall. Graves marveled at his power.
Styles landed a springboard 450 for a near fall. Graves said the fact that Styles had that in his reserve athletically at this point in the match was mind-blowing. Styles set up a Styles Clash. Joe dropped out of it and immediately catapulted Styles into the corner. Then he hit a vicious clothesline for a two count. Both were slow to get up. Graves said Joe reached from the depths of his soul and hit that lariat, but still couldn’t get the three on Styles. Styles took a great bump there. Styles came up bleeding from his mouth. Phillips said Styles was a mess. Joe set up a Muscle Buster off the top, but Styles slipped out into a sunset flip and then went for a Styles Clash immediately, but Joe kicked his way free from an upside down position. Styles hinted at Calk Crusher, but Joe landed a round kick to the head. Joe took a few breaths, rolled Styles onto his back, and then scored a two count.
Styles set up a Phenomenal Forearm with a quick forearm, but Joe avoided the springboard forearm and applied the Coquina Clutch. Joe ripped Styles away from the ropes and dropped back. Styles bridged Joe’s shoulders down and the ref counted to three. Joe was irate afterward, standing over Styles and protesting the call. He tried to tell the ref Styles actually tapped out. Joe went to ringside and Graves hesitantly said he thinks he saw a tapout.
Joe returned to the ring as Styles’s music played. As Styles reached for his belt, Joe snatched it and held it up. Styles then gave Joe a leaping round kick to the back of his head. Joe rolled to the floor. A bloodied Styles held up the belt, then dropped to his knees and fall back onto the mat, selling the war he just fought in the ring.
They replayed the finish from a fresh angle and Styles did indeed indisputably tapout before the ref counted to three. Graves declared Joe the WWE Champion, then said Joe at least has a legitimate gripe.

WWE UNIVERSAL CHAMPIONSHIP - ROMAN REIGNS VS BRAUN STROWMAN
Braun came out to a mixed response. Once he entered the Hell in a Cell (the entire structure is coated in red now, by the way), he raised the belt and that was the loudest boos of his entrance. When Reigns’s music stopped, Braun and Reigns had a stare down mid-ring. When Reigns raised his belt in the air, Strowman snatched it away. The crowd cheered. Reigns jump-started the match with a punch to the jaw. Cole said Reigns wouldn’t allow the championship to be disrespected by Braun like that. (And so begins the needlessly heavy-handed commentary telling everyone why they should absolutely cheer Reigns.) Braun kneed Reigns to stop him and then threw him shoulder-first into the ring post. Braun then knocked him hard off the ring apron into the side of the Cell.
As Reigns returned to the ring, a “Let’s Go Roman / Roman sucks!” dueling chant began. Reigns knocked Strowman to the floor. Louder boos. Strowman charged at Reigns at ringside seconds later, knocking him hard into the Cell wall. He then stomped on his throat like he was putting out a cigarette. When Braun picked up the steel steps, Roman kicked them out of his hands. He then hit a Drive By. Braun caught Reigns’s half-hearted leap toward him and chokeslammed him on the ring apron. A “Get These Hands!” started with a small group of fans. Strowman picked up a kendo stick, but dropped it. He liked the chair better. He smiled. Reigns popped up and hit Strowman with the kendo stick. Renee said she’s never seen one of those break so quickly before. Reigns kicked Braun as he was re-entering the ring.
Reigns bashed Braun across his back with a chair a few times. Strowman grabbed the chair mid-swing and yanked it away, but when he charged shoulder-first, Reigns moved. Strowman crashed into the ringpost. Reigns DDT’d Strowman onto a chair for a soft two count with a powerful kickoff. Reigns staggered Strowman with two Superman Punches. He went for a third and Strowman chokeslammed him for a very near fall. Strowman complained to referee Mick Foley, who went from invisible to a factor in this match instantly. Braun yelled more at Foley, who defended himself. Braun lifted Reigns for a power slam, but Reigns slipped out and caught him with a boot. Reigns avoided a charging Braun and then hit a Superman Punch for a near fall. Cole went into ultra-dramatic mode for the count.
Reigns charged at Strowman at ringside, but when he turned the corner, Strowman met him with raised steel steps. Reigns went down hard. Strowman threw Reigns back into the ring as Graves said Reigns will have diamond prints on his forehead for the next few weeks. Strowman bashed Reigns again with the top of the steps, good for a two count. Strowman protested, then yelled, “Why won’t you stay down, you moron!” Cole said: “He won’t stay down, Braun, because that’s what Roman Reigns is all about. That’s why he is Universal Champion today!” Strowman smashed the ringside steps down onto Reigns’s chest. He threw the steps out of the ring, making a huge noise as they bounced off the cage and the ring and landed with a thud on the mat. Graves said Reigns could have internal injuries after that. Strowman landed a running powerslam and scored a two count. Graves said Braun isn’t happy with the officiating, “and for good reason.” Braun set up a table in the corner. Reigns slipped free. Reigns landed a Superman Punch and then speared Braun through the table. It broke in two. Reigns made the cover and Bryan kicked out.
With both men down, Ziggler and McIntyre ran out. the ringside ref yelled at them. Dean and Seth ran out and threw Drew into the barricade. Ziggler ran away. They caught him and threw him into the cage and took turns punching him. They cleared an announce table. Drew ran back and attacked Seth and Dean. When Seth and Dean fought back, Ziggler began to climb the Cell. Graves said he was just trying to escape Rollins. Seth followed him. They stood on top of the Cell and exchanged punches. Drew began to scale the Cell, too. Cole said this must be bringing back nightmares for Foley. Seth set up a Powerbomb, but had to abandon it as Drew approached. Drew mounted Seth and punched away at him. Dean climbed the Cell with a kendo stick. Dean attacked Ziggler and Drew with the kendo stick like a madman. “This is crazy!” said Cole. Dean and Drew double-clotheslined each other and crashed onto the roof. “Thank God it held!” said Cole. “There are bodies strewn everywhere!”
Ziggler was able to began a descent, although Seth crawled over and tried too grab at him. Ziggler punched Seth off of him and tried to get his footing in the cage. He began to climb down. Seth began to descend next to him. They fought on the middle beam of the cage wall. Reigns and Braun were still down in the ring all these minutes later, which was ridiculous. The camera aimed up dramatically at them as they tried to bash each other into the cage. They both bumped onto tables in stereo fashion. (Is it really going to help Reigns get over now that Seth isn’t just insulating him from cheers, but he’s taking the big bumps for him in his matches?)
Suddenly Brock Lesnar’s music played and he walked out with Paul Heyman. Now there was a surprise. The ref outside the cage tried to tell them to leave. It’d have been hilarious if they listened. Lesnar kicked the door off of the Cell and it came right off the hinges. Fans chanted “Holy sh–!” Heyman sprayed Foley in the eyes. Foley went down, writhing in pain. Lesnar bashed Braun across the back with parts of a broken table. Then he hit Reigns. Then Braun, and the table piece broke in two and went flying. He picked up another piece and broke it across both men’s backs. Lesnar then gave Braun an F5. Braun didn’t take it particularly well. Lesnar looked fierce with a beard as he circled the two men. Lesnar then gave Reigns an F5 and dropped him onto Strowman. Fans chanted “UFC.” Cole said, “Nobody in a million years expected Brock Lesnar to show up here tonight!” Graves: “And no one is safe.” No boos. Just a “One more time!” chant. He left. Cole said Lesnar has left bodies in his wake. The ringside ref entered the ring and called off the match. Boos. Cole said he has no choice. Reigns and Braun writhed on the mat. Reigns grabbed his left arm. “I have never seen anything like tonight,” Cole said. Graves said neither man can continue thanks to Brock Lesnar.
The winner of the match: No Contest
