This is part 6 of our WWE SummerSlam 2023 live coverage (part 5 is here).
Up next is the World Heavyweight Championship match. Finn Balor makes his way out first. He came out alone, no Judgment Day members with him. Seth Rollins came out next and he’s wearing the same vest he wore at SummerSlam 2016.
If Rollins wins tonight, he will have the 5th most wins in the history of SummerSlam.
Balor attacked Rollins before the opening bell. During the match, Balor began bleeding from his mouth.
Finn countered Seth’s Falcon’s Arrow and tried to pin him, but Seth kicked out.
Mr. Money In The Bank Damian Priest came out during the match. Priest punched Rollins behind the referee’s back and Finn then hit a Pedigree on Rollins. Finn goes for the cover, but Seth kicked out!
Priest is calling somebody and out comes Women’s World Champion Rhea Ripley and NXT North American Champion Dominik Mysterio.
Damian puts his MITB briefcase in the ring for Finn to use, but Finn is not happy that Priest came out with the contract. Rollins hit Finn with a Stomp and goes for a cover, but Finn kicks out!
Rollins takes out Priest & Dirty Dom. Rollins goes back into the ring and Balor hits him with his series of moves, followed by his finishing move. Finn goes for the cover, but Rollins kicks out.
Priest puts his MITB briefcase in the ring for Finn to use again and Priest distracts the referee. This plan backfired as Rollins stomped Balor’s head on top of the briefcase and pinned him to win the match.
