The Beast was slain. The Fiend arrived. SummerSlam 2019 is in the books. Unlike some other WWE shows, there wasn’t a whole lot that happened in the arena that you didn’t see on the broadcast but here are some tidbits and the sentiment of the crowd. Some of these might have made the live broadcast and others did not.
- Renee Young (who was born in Toronto) received some cheers when she took her spot at the announce desk before the show began.
- Edge’s appearance and his spear on Elias.
- Goldberg’s continued pummeling of Dolph Ziggler.
- Kevin Owens’ win over Shane McMahon.
- Randy Orton’s RKO to Kofi Kingston.
- Natalya’s top rope submission move on Becky.
- The Fiend’s entrance.
- Trish’s goodbye.
- Seth Rollins’ defeat of Brock Lesnar and his frog splash on Lesnar, table.Negative
- The entire Bayley versus Ember Moon match didn’t draw much interest.
- A.J. Styles versus Ricochet was tepid at best except for those high spots and the finish.
- The conclusion of Kofi Kingston and Randy Orton match.

- In order to get that shot of him in the eerie light after his match with Finn Balor, Bray Wyatt had to quickly roll out of the ring and sprint up the rampway in the darkness.

- A sign read: “Owen Hart HOF 2020.”
- Much of the crowd was not in Rollins’ corner at the start of the match but that changed when he gathered momentum to eventually slay the Beast.
