Summer Slam 2015 was a night that was hyped up for weeks and then managed to live up to that hype through a large amount of controversy.

From Jon Stewart to the time keeper at ringside, there were plenty of surprisingly controversial characters in tonight's show.

When is a tap out not a tap out?

The main event tonight was Brock Lesnar vs Undertaker in the match dubbed 'too big for WrestleMania.'

The match was explosive from the start with Lesnar attacking Undertaker before he even had time to remove his trademark leather coat.

Lesnar was cut open early on and the Undertaker suffered an F-5 through the announce table at ringside.

The real talking points however came at the end of the match when Lesnar hooked Taker in the Kimura lock in the middle of the ring.

Undertaker tried to get Lesnar's shoulders down and the referee counted a one count when the bell inexplicably rang.

Lesnar released the hold and the referee argued with the time keeper that he has no authority to ring the bell with many fans picturing another Montreal screw job.

The match would continue however and Undertaker would deliver another low blow to Lesnar - behind the ref's back and lock him in the Hell's Gate submission hold.

Lesnar would eventually pass out to the hold and Undertaker would then win the match, but not before Lesnar gave Taker the finger... Literally.

After the match, the replays would prove that while the referee was checking Lesnar's shoulders during the Kimura lock, Undertaker did indeed tap out on Lesnar's leg.

A very controversial ending to an incredible match but it now appears that this issue is still far from over, but who knows when we will next see either man.

A night of controversy

The Lesnar/ Taker finale wasn't the only controversy on the night however as the title vs title match between Seth Rollins and John Cena ended under strange circumstances too.

Rollins - in all white attire tonight left the victor with both title belts and made history, but as always, he had some help.

It wasn't Kane, J and J security or even Triple H, but an old nemesis and host of Summer Slam Jon Stewart who would hit Cena with a chair, then give it to Rollins to deliver a pedigree to Cena.
