WWE Great Balls of Fire is over, and after some incredible and thrilling matches, there are few Superstars with stocks that are trending upwards heading into the following episode of RAW.
While the PPV’s name may have been awful, Great Balls of Fire was actually an incredibly entertaining program consisting of some incredible and some unbelievable matches.
We saw Bray Wyatt defeat WWE 2K18’s cover athlete in the former’s first PPV win in what feels like forever, Enzo Amore ran his mouth about his tough life and strong heart, and Big Cass destroy him in a matter of minutes.
There was also a 30-minute Iron Man tag team match with plenty of pinfalls that came down to the wire, but in the end, Sheamus and Cesaro were just barely able to steal a win with a 4-3 victory over the Hardy Boyz.
Alexa Bliss showed off her double jointed talents in her matchup with Sasha Banks, and she got counted out to retain her title, but she could not escape the wrath of The Boss’s double knees off of the announcer’s table.
The Miz and his Miztourage were able to use the numbers game to defeat Dean Ambrose and retain his Intercontinental Championship. Then, things really started to get heated.
There was a brutal match between Braun Strowman and Roman Reigns, which ended with Reigns missing a spear into the ambulance, and Strowman closed the doors for the win. That wasn’t the end of the action though as Roman drove the ambulance, with Strowman into it, right into a huge truck.
An impromptu five-minute long match between Heath Slater and Curt Hawkins took place as the fallout from the ambulance crash took place. Then, it was time for the main event.
After getting sent through a table and withstanding several coquina clutches and strikes from Samoa Joe, Brock Lesnar managed to send Joe to Suplex City and retained his title with an emphatic F-5.
So, let’s analyze the Superstars that benefitted the most from the events that occurred at WWE’s first-ever Great Balls of Fire PPV.
