Bengaluru, August 12: WWE delivered the 32nd edition in Summerslam chronology which was an extravaganza by all means as seen at the Scotiabank Arena in Toronto, Ontario, Canada on Sunday (August 11) by the WWE Universe.
The match card was stacked as multiple champions from both Raw and Smackdown defended their titles on the show. Plus, a couple of Hall of Famers returned to in-ring competition to make the show a must-see for the pro-wrestling fans.
