Brock Lesnar vs Samoa Joe - WWE Great Balls of Fire 2017 Results

Posted July 10, 2017

After the end of the Ambulance Match at Great Balls of Fire, just where Roman Reigns will end up on the SummerSlam card is unknown. While the name of the event tends to get made fun of, the card is stacked from top to bottom. Essentially, the opportunity cost of Lesnar's "rare appearances" is that talented athletes like Balor and Joe won't necessarily get the chance to live up to their potential if an eventual Lesnar vs. Reigns rematch is the top priority for management. Plus, there will be indications given on who his next opponent is going to be. Sasha Banks took advantage of an exhausted Jax to become the next challenger for Bliss' title, and she even made Bliss tap out in a tag team match this week on Raw (Bliss claims she let Banks win).

Aside from the mentioned matches, Neville will compete against Akira Tozawa for the Cruiserweight Championship, which was initially negotiated by Titus O'Neil. The finish saw Jeff hit a Swanton Bomb on Sheamus, who wasn't the legal man, then Cesaro comes in to pin Jeff. These two teams wouldn't have a 4 minute PPV match so why would they have 7?

Raw Tag Team Champions Cesaro and Sheamus def.

The other great match was Brock Lesnar vs. Samoa Joe for the WWE Universal Championship. It's the first title defense for Lesnar since he won the belt from Goldberg at "WrestleMania 33" back in early April.

Finally, the result was obtained as Brock Lesnar (champion) beat Samoa Joe. Lesnar and Joe hate each other.

The Miz won his seventh WWE Intercontinental Championship at WWE Extreme Rules by defeating The Miz. The Miz apologized but things got worse when he accidentally broke the gift, which was a clock, again.

-Who will step up to challenge the Iron Men?

The unofficial number one contenders match for The Universal Championship, The Big Dog will do battle with his rival the Monster Among Men. Or to Brock Lesnar, anywhere.

Joe, Brock, Reigns, and Strowman delivered huge on what was a really enjoyable WWE PPV. Also, one wrestler tried to murder another wrestler by driving an ambulance into a tractor trailer. That was enough of a distraction for Wyatt to hit Sister Abigail and get the pin. The Kingslayer Seth Rollins is coming off a monumental victory over Triple H at WrestleMania, and the Eater of Worlds Bray Wyatt claimed the "brass ring" after capturing the WWE Championship.

Sasha caught Alexa with the Banks Statement, but Alexa was able to reach the ropes. Big Cass and Enzo Amore are set to meet in the squared circle for the first time since their break up.

"I have to admit, I sat down last Sunday with episode one and it engulfed me", he said.

Unless there were some serious shenanigans in play, the outcome to this match was clear from the moment the match was announced, but as much as the match was destined to be a physical destruction for the diminutive Enzo Amore, the moments before the match meant far more for him personally as a character. He relied on Cass because he was bigger, stronger and more athletic. Enzo later attacked Cass during a backstage interview.

WWE Great Balls of Fire takes place on Sunday, July 9 at 8 PM ET.
