SummerSlam was a great pay per view, and while some won't agree with the way the two main events ended, no one can deny that there was tons of shock value.
The more shocking of the two was probably the fact that Seth Rollins walked away with two titles, which I certainly didn't predict.
The match was impressive as many expected and hoped it would be, and I was delighted to see Rollins get most of the offense, in my opinion anyway, throughout the bout.

Seeing Rollins lift Cena up for an Attitude Adjustment was amazing, and demonstrated his strength which hasn't really been seen. They can be understood though, as Rollins is playing the role of a heel. Rollins also kicked out of an Attitude Adjustment, and hit two consecutive suicide dives, followed by a somersault plancha over the top rope.
Overall, the match was great and kept me on the edge of my seat, but what happened towards the end is what will decide the fans reaction.
In an ending no one could have called, Jon Stewart, the man who even had a short feud with Seth Rollins, interfered and hit Cena with a steel chair, after it looked like Cena would get the win, only to find out the referee had been knocked out of the ring and there was no one to count the fall.
My reasoning behind this is a segment midway through the show. In a conversation with Paul Heyman, Stewart said that he's a wrestling fan, and how he likes endings that please the fans. This is most probably the reason he interfered, as we all know that a Cena win would have received a terrible reaction from the fans.
Some won't like the fact that a huge and hyped up match ended with a celebrity interference, but I'm just happy that Rollins got the win and both titles. It remains to see whether Seth will be allowed to be a double champion, or whether he will be stripped of the US Title because of the interference.
However, I don't think that Cena will take the title back that way, instead he'll play the role of Mr. Hustle Loyalty and Respect, and ask for a rematch instead. As for now, an interference didn't really ruin what was a superb match in my opinion, and it will be interesting to see how Seth Rollins moves forward holding both the WWE World Heavyweight Championship and the US Title.
