The final match from the WWE SummerSlam 2012 results has ended, with the Triple H vs. Brock Lesnar fight now over. This one was built up as “the perfect storm,” and certainly had that sort of atmosphere in the ring. So who won the big main event match and did either man’s career end in the process?
According to WWE Characters, the final SummerSlam results for Sunday night were for the biggest battle of the event. For weeks, fans had been anticipating a classic showdown between two superstars who had yet to face off in the ring. Earlier in the night, during WWE’s SummerSlam pre-show, Triple H even asked the referee for the match, to only let the match finish by either someone tapping out or getting pinned. That’s exactly what happened too.
Multiple times during this monumental WWE SummerSlam matchup, Brock Lesnar attempted to “bring the pain,” as he kept trying to put his arm lock on HHH and make him tap out. Several times, The Game managed to make a valiant comeback, even drawing blood on his opponent. Hunter hit multiple Pedigrees on Brock. Brock managed to kick out of the first pinfall attempt. The later pinfall saw Brock counter as HHH crawled over for a cover. Brock locked on his special arm lock submission hold, and with nowhere to go, The Game had to tap out. Commentators Michael Cole and Jerry Lawler even questioned if Triple H broke his arm, again.
The scene after the match was a somber one for fans of Triple H. He shoved away medical personnel in the ring, and stood up on his own, then looked around. The fans started a “You tapped out” chant, and HHH mouthed “I’m sorry” several times. He looked as if he was ready to call it quits, and the commentators questioned if this might be the last time we see him.
So what’s next? For Triple H it’s tough to say, but for Brock Lesnar it seems very obvious that they’re setting up a future showdown with The Undertaker. Brock will probably claim he has now defeated “The Cerebral Assassin,” one of the all-time WWE legends. He’ll act as if there’s no challenges left for him in WWE. However, he has yet to go head-to-head with the legendary undefeated WrestleMania streak held by Undertaker. Consider this one just about in the books, but WWE will probably hide it for several months ahead of time.
Do you think Triple H is going to retire after this SummerSlam loss? Will Brock Lesnar fight at another PPV this year, or not until WrestleMania 29 next year?
