They pushed Summerslam and then reviewed the Kickoff matches with the panel.

We are told that the refs tossed up the 'X' signal live while the cameras weren't on and that Alberto Del Rio was helped to the back.  Working on whether that was just him selling or not.

Good match.  Titus showed some real aggression early n and it was a good competitive bout.

Rusev took the mic and stood in front of O'Neil's kids and told them their father was a loser before wishing them "Happy Father's Day."

I was told that live in the venue, it appeared they snuck someone under the ring during a video package for the main event.

WWE World Heavyweight champion Roman Reigns vs. Seth Rollins

They have a big face off.  It is 10:54 as the bell rings, so like Wrestlemania, this is going to go overtime.  Being on the West Coast works to their advantage.

Rollins rolled back into the ring and then back out again to avoid the champion.  Rollins was finally able to send him into the ring steps shoulder-first when Roman caught up to him.  Rollins went to the top but Roman caught him and pulled him off the top for a Razor's Edge into a sit-down powerbomb.  Rollins pulled himself up as Roman called for the Superman Punch.  Rollins caught him and smashed him into the buckles face-first.

Seth went for a Pedigree but Roman broke it.  Rollins missed a kick and went for a rollup.  Roman caught him and powerbombed him down.  They faced off and gave each other the stink-eye before nailing each other back and forth with big bombs.  Roman nailed Rollins and went for the Superman Punch but was caught with a knee.  Rollins nailed another Buckle bomb but was drilled with a Superman Punch. 

Rollins went to the floor.  Roman charged for a spear but Rollins moved and Roman hit the barricade, which didn't even budge.  WWE medical and officials came out and began checking on him as he was out on his feet.  Rollins attacked him and sent him into the ring.  He set up for the Pedigree but was backed up into the ref, who went down.   Roman speared him and scored a two count because the referee was recovering.

Well, that is a hell of a vote of confidence in Rollins.  Really good, hard hitting bout.

Rollins celebrated in the ring when Dean Ambrose's music hit.  Rollins waited for him to come out, but Dean came from under the ring and drilled Seth with the case.  He cashed in.
