The WWE SummerSlam 2014 pay-per-view results arrive on Sunday, August 18 from Los Angeles, California, with multiple superstars and divas in action on what appears to be an entertaining card. As the main event, John Cena attempts to slay "the Beast" Brock Lesnar and retain the WWE World Heavyweight title. In grudge matches, Brie Bella tries to fight to get her job back as she faces Stephanie McMahon, who is returning to the ring for the first time in a while. Roman Reigns attempts to dismantle Randy Orton, while Seth Rollins and Dean Ambrose will finally hook up in a Lumberjack match, where there's no escape. That's not to mention several other feuds and titles matches on the card!
Predictions have already hit the internet based on odds for who will win the various matches. Cena has been listed as the underdog tonight against Brock Lesnar, or at least to lose the title before the conclusion of SummerSlam. That may very well mean that either Lesnar defeats Cena, or Seth Rollins cashes in his MITB briefcase on Cena for the title win.
Other stipulations for matches tonight are listed below. Chris Jericho should get a "clean" one-on-one match with Bray Wyatt, with no outside interference from Harper or Rowan. As of this report, there are no scheduled U.S. or tag team titles matches. However, there is a free "kickoff" match as of 7:30 p.m. EST with Rob Van Dam taking on Cesaro ahead of the main show.
The main pay-per-view gets started at 8 p.m. EST live online through WWE Network. As results occur, the match-by-match updated recaps and results will be listed below. You can refresh this page during the event: click here to see the latest updated results
