You want chaos? We have chaos. WWE has posted a new video to their YouTube channel, in which they show the Fatal 4-way match between Samoa Joe, Braun Strowman, Roman Reigns and Brock Lesnar for the Universal Championship from Summerslam 2017. This was a chaotic match in every way, with destruction reigning everywhere.
You can see the match in its entirety below:
In a match where The Beast Incarnate staked nothing less than his WWE future on the outcome, the reigning, defending, undisputed Universal Champion defeated his three opponents to retain his title in a SummerSlam Fatal 4-Way that all but reduced the Barclays Center to a smoldering crater at the corner of Atlantic and Flatbush.
While each Superstar was a destroyer in his own right, the four competitors picked a certain strategy throughout the course of the demolition-derby contest. Reigns played offense, dishing out Superman Punches and Spears at will, including one that plowed Lesnar through the barricade in the early goings of the match.
The Anomaly stormed back over the frantic, if ineffective, objections of WWE officials to turn the bout into a proverbial race to the finish, with each Superstar jockeying for position in brutal fashion. Reigns Superman Punched everything on two feet that wasn’t wearing a referee shirt and Speared Lesnar, only to suffer the brunt of a Coquina Clutch that was broken up, again, by Strowman. The Monster Among Men executed a Running Powerslam that would have gone for three had Brock not pulled the ref out of the ring. Lesnar, as he did before, countered Joe’s Coquina Clutch with an F-5, and Reigns broke up the three-count, finally bringing The Beast to the edge with a trifecta of Superman Punches. Yet, when he revved up for a potential final Spear, Lesnar hoisted him for a sudden-strike F-5 that ended the match in as brutal and abrupt a fashion as it began.
I remember this match so vividly, and I remember it being my favorite match of the night by far. All four competitors started beating the hell out of each other from the get-go, and it was both incredible storytelling, and a lot of fun at the same time!
