Raw Tag Team Title Match: Sheamus & Cesaro vs Seth Rollins & Dean Ambrose

Sheamus and Ambrose start us off, and Sheamus quickly winds up on the receiving end of some slick double teams from the Shield.  Cesaro comes in and the Shield clear the ring and stand tall together.  Dean goes out after Sheamus and eats a Brogue kick, then Rollins dumps Cesaro to the floor and goes for a dive, but gets caught by both champs and slammed on the floor.  BIG slam too.  Rollins winds up on the receiving end of some double teaming and hits a blockbuster to Cesaro, but Ambrose is still down on the floor and not available to make a tag.  Sheamus tags in and slams Rollins back into his corner and covers for 2.  Cesaro suddenly becomes the biggest babyface in history by running into the crowd while some assholes are playing with a beach ball, grabs the beach ball, and tears the damn thing to pieces.  THAT is long overdue.  Rollins is still in peril, but Ambrose is finally up and lays out the champs, creating enough space for Rollins to get to the corner and make the hot tag.  Ambrose goes nuts and cleans house on both me, catching Cesaro with a neckbreaker for 2.  Rollins connects with a springboard clothesline to Sheamus to send him to the floor, double clothesline sends Cesaro to the floor, and then stereo dives take both champs out.  Sheamus takes Rollins out on the floor as Ambrose comes off the top into a European uppercut from Cesaro that gets 2.  Ambrose with the rebound lariat, then Sheamus tags in and goes to the top, but Ambrose and Rollins double team with a superplex and top rope splash for 2 when Cesaro breaks the fall.  Sheamus and Rollins are going toe to toe, but then Ambrose tags in and they stomp Sheamus out in the corner.  Sheamus gets sat on the top rope for a modified double powerbomb, but Cesaro slips back in and takes Rollins out while Sheamus hits a tilt a whirl powerslam on Ambrose for 2. Cesaro comes off the top with a crossbody and Ambrose reverses for 2, Ambrose tries for Dirty Deeds, Cesaro reverses to the big swing and then gets the Sharpshooter.  Ambrose nearly makes the ropes, so Cesaro rolls him into the middle of the ring and converts it to a crippler crossface.  Ambrose reverses to a cradle for 2, Sheamus cheapshots Ambrose on another rebound lariat attempt, and the champs hit a top rope clothesline/powerbomb combo...for 2!  Sheamus can't believe it.  Champs hit the T Gimmick on Ambrose, but Rollins breaks it up at 2.9999999999.  Champs put the boots to Rollins and dump him back out to the floor, then turn around and see Ambrose motioning them to come give him more.  So they do.  They go for the assisted White Noise, but Rollins super Frankensteiners Cesaro into Sheamus ot break it up, then superkicks Sheamus and Ambrose hits Dirty Deeds for the win!

US Title Match: Kevin Owens vs AJ Styles

The announcers just pointed out how every title contested tonight has changed hands, so the Laws of WWE Physics means that the very next match after such a statement is required to be a successful title defense.  AJ goes right after Owens from the start, Owens goes back after him, and Shane physically hauls Owens off of AJ.  He rings the bell, and they go right back after each other and brawl to the floor where Shane yells at them to get it back in the ring.  AJ comes across the apron with a kneestrike to the face, then they head back into the ring where Owens puts the boots to AJ.  The announcers just pointed out how, every time there's been a special referee at Summerslam, the title has always changed hands.  Once again, I'm smelling a successful title defense.  AJ hits a side backbreaker on Owens, but Owens with a shot to AJ's throat...and AJ rocks him with a big right hand in return.  Owens turns AJ inside out with a big clothesline and rains down right hands on him.  Owens with a hard clothesline in the corner, followed by a cannonball for 2.  Owens unloads more shots, AJ tells him to bring it on, and Owens does, then AJ goes toe to toe with Owens and picks him up in a fireman's carry before dumping him in a facebuster.  Owens blocks the Styles Clash, then avoids the moonsault Deathdrop and superkicks AJ's head off.  Owens goes for the pop-up powerbomb, AJ slips out and hoists Owens up to deliver the fireman's carry neckbreaker.  AJ goes to the top, Owens shoves Shane int othe ropes to knock AJ down, then Owens gets AJ in a fireman's carry on the top, but AJ slips out and hits a sunset bomb.  AJ goes for the springboard 450 on Owens, but Shane was checking on Owens at the time and got cuahgt in the crossfire.  AJ goes to check on Shane, but Owens grabs him from behind and hits the pop-up powerbomb.  Shane stirs and makes a count, but only gets 2.  Owens gets in Shane's face and yells at him for not being there, but Shane doesn't back down and insists it was 2.  Owens charges AJ and AJ moves and gets the Calf Crusher.  Owens goes to the eyes to get out, but AJ picks the legs for another Calf Crusher and Owens kicks him off into Shane, who goes tumbling to the floor.  AJ gets the Calf Crusher again, and Owens taps, but Shane is out on the floor.  AJ releases the hold and now he's getting in Shane's face, then shoves Shane, who shoves him back and allows Owens to roll him up for 2.  AJ goes for a leaping charge in the corner and Owens sidesteps, he goes for another cannonball but AJ drills him with a forearm and then suplexes him into the corner.  AJ puts Owens on the top rope and goes for a super Frankensteiner, but Owens catches him and counters to a top rope fisherman's buster.  Owens makes a cover, but only gets 2.  Owens yells at Shane that that was 3 and he knows it, then he and AJ trade right hands.  AJ misses a Pelle kick, Owens hits a superkick, AJ gets a rollup and turns that into the Styles Clash, but Owens is out at 2.  AJ goes to the apron for the springboard forearm, Owens ducks, and he walks right into the pop-up powerbomb.  Shane counts 3, but then sees AJ had his foot on the ropes and calls the fall off.  Owens is livid, and he gets right in Shane's face, poking him in the chest and getting into a shoving match that aloows AJ to roll Owens up for 2.  AJ with the Pelle kick and then he goes to the apron for the springboard forearm, and this time he hits it.  He goes for another Styles Clash and hits it, and that's all she wrote.

Winner: AJ Styles

Boy, can I call these things or what?  AJ becomes the first person to retain their title tonight.
