Kevin Owens def. Cesaro

BROOKLYN, N.Y. — At SummerSlam, the words on the lips of the WWE Universe weren’t “Walk Owens Walk” or anything of that sort, but “Win Owens Win,” after Kevin Owens picked up an important victory over Cesaro at the sold-out Barclays Center.

Though he was just one night removed from a grueling NXT Championship Ladder Match, Owens seemingly had the upper hand early in the bout, sending Cesaro to the arena floor with a hard forearm to the jaw, following up with a somersault senton over the ropes. However, the brawler spent a little too much time running his mouth to the WWE Universe, allowing Cesaro to recover and hit a twisting dive of his own.

Cesaro had a brief spurt of offense, but Owens willed his way back into control, crushing The Swiss Superman with a cannonball into the unforgiving ringside barricade. The former NXT Champion slowed the bout down to his pace by wearing Cesaro down in between high-impact maneuvers. Owens urged Cesaro to stay down, but only fired his rival up when he slapped him in the face.

The Swiss Superman staggered Owens with a flurry of European uppercuts before displaying his unbelievable strength, hoisting the 266-pound Owens off the ropes for a deadlift gutwrench suplex. Though he dizzied Owens with a Cesaro Swing, The Swiss Superman came out on the bad end of a tussle on the top rope. Owens crotched his rival on the top turnbuckle  before hitting Cesaro with a twisting neckbreaker off the top  and then his patented Pop-up Powerbomb to earn the win.

Kevin Owens made a huge statement at The Biggest Event  of the Summer and began running his mouth to anyone within shouting distance. Now that he has a much-needed victory in his back pocket, what will the prizefighter turn his sights on now?
