Wrestling fans were NOT pleased with the ending of the match between Brock Lesnar and The Undertaker at ‘SummerSlam.’ After the Deadman stole a victory over The Beast, the WWE Universe flocked to Twitter to blast the Undertaker over how he cheated!
SummerSlam is over but the WWE Universe is still buzzing over the ending of the main event! The Undertaker, 50, was awarded the controversial victory over Brock Lesnar, 38, after nailing a low blow! Uh-oh. The WWE fans were not happy with the results and slammed the “Coward-taker” for his cheating ways!
It was a devastating match between The Beast and the Phenom at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York on Aug. 23. Fans were loving the brutal grudge match between these two rivals, but the finish left the WWE Universe angry and confused!
When Brock had Taker in a Kimura lock, someone rang the ring bell, despite the referee not calling for it. When the official turned his back to say that the match wasn’t over, The Undertaker punched Brock in the crotch and slapped on the Hell’s Gate submission move. Brock passed out and Taker won, but the replay footage showed that The Undertaker tapped out — or gave up — while he was in Brock’s Kimura lock! Somehow, the ref didn’t see Taker tap out!
It’s no surprise that fans didn’t buy that The Undertaker was the winner of the match. Some said Brock “was the better one and HE CLEARLY won,” while others said that the best thing of the match was how Brock “[showed] a middle finger” to the Deadman as he passed out. Other fans were “upset and furious,” while some blasted Taker for cheating! Though Taker walked away the winner, he took quite the beating in the match. He was so beat up, he collapsed while on his way backstage!
SummerSlam also saw another controversial ending, when Jon Stewart turned on John Cena to help Seth Rollins win both the US and World Heavyweight Titles. Thankfully, the good guys scored a victory when Neville and Stephen Amell beat Stardust and King Barrett.
Who do you think REALLY won the match, HollywoodLifers? The Undertaker or Brock Lesnar?
