WWE/NXT Live Event Reports, Aug. 9-14: Cena Works Raw Events, Liv Morgan, Lesnar Vs. Joe, Takeover Previews, Much More!

The last full week of live events before Summerslam weekend is in the books.

The Raw crew was highlighted by Roman Reigns and Braun Strowman at the top of the card, although the August 12 and 13 house shows saw a special attraction Smackdown match pitting John Cena against Rusev. Over on the Smackdown tour, the lineup switcheroo continued, with Brock Lesnar defending his Universal Title -- the property of Raw -- against Samoa Joe. The Smackdown events also marked the main roster debut for Liv Morgan, who is still in NXT but was filling in on the babyface women's side for Charlotte Flair, who was in China promoting the launch of the WWE Network in that country.

Tom Lawlor vs. Marshall Von Erich Set For Next FUSION, Title Fight To Close Out MLW Season On 5/5

NXT had two crews on the road -- one in California and another closer to home in Florida. As is usually the case when NXT has two tours running concurrently, the traveling group was more of the "A-list" from the Performance Center. The California events also saw nearly each of the matchups scheduled for Takeover: Brooklyn take place as a "warm-up" for the big event this Saturday. The Florida NXT events also were newsworthy, as Mae Young Classic participants Shayna Baszler and Kairi Sane made their first appearances at live events since their matches for the tournament were filmed.

Here are all the results.
