A seven-year vendetta has come to a close at SummerSlam.
Utilizing some of his old tricks including an entrance reminiscent of The Brood from 1999, Edge defeated Seth Rollins at SummerSlam 2021 to earn his first victory in front of a live audience since 2011.
Here's how it all went down:
Seth Rollins vs Edge
Seth and Edge lock up before Edge punches Seth and clotheslines him over the top and down onto the floor before Seth takes his time getting back inside and Edge lays into him with punches and stomps in the corner before Seth kicks him in the midsection on the separation and Edge sends Seth crashing down onto the floor. Edge goes out after Seth and smashes his face into the announce table before sending him into the barricade and Seth gets back inside before Edge knees him out of the ring and Seth drives him into the post before smashing his head into the stairs. Seth rolls Edge back inside and hits a neckbreaker for two before stomping him in the corner and choking him before hitting another neckbreaker for two before hitting a springboard flying knee for two before playing to the crowd. Edge counters a neckbreaker into a back slide for two before hitting a neckbreaker and a running shoulder tackle into the corner before setting Seth up top backwards and Seth fights off an inverted superplex into frog splash for two before Edge rolls out onto the apron when Seth teases a stomp. Edge counters a superplex into a diving swinging neckbreaker before Edge drops Seth across the top rope and clotheslines him before booting him and hitting the Edgecution for a near fall before going up top and Seth meets him and hits a superplex into a falcon arrow for a near fall. Edge counters a stomp into slam for a near fall before Seth hits a neckbreaker in the ropes before missing a stomp onto the apron and Edge sends him into the post before spearing Seth through the ropes and onto the floor before Seth counters a spear into a Pedigree for a near fall. Edge then catches Seth's foot and locks in the Edgecator before Seth rolls him up for two and Seth locks in a cross face before smashing Seth's face into the mat and locking in a sleeper before Seth taps for the win.
Winner: Edge defeats Seth Rollins via submission.
