WWE's second biggest show of the year ended up being a mixed bag of highs and lows. There were a few head-scratching finishes such as Jinder Mahal's win and some weak matches like the super short loss for Rusev. However, when the show was good, it was great.

The biggest highlight of the night was easily the main event. Braun Strowman shined as the monster who laid waste to everybody. His dismantling of the WWE Universal Champion in the beginning with every announce table in eyesight was incredible. That sequence will be remembered for a long time to come. That match also featured a spear through a barricade as well as another flying office chair, which are all spots that landed on this countdown.

Outside of the Universal Championship Match, AJ Styles flew through the air with a 450 that hit more than he planned for, Baron Corbin gave John Cena a stiff move off of his knee, and Seth Rollins saved the match for himself and Dean Ambrose with a springboard hurricanrana. The action was heavy during The Biggest Party of the Summer and these are the moves that will be most talked about.

10. ...And STILL The WWE Champion

Jinder Mahal's retention of the WWE Championship isn't exactly what Brooklyn expected to see. When the cameras cut to the audience after Shinsuke Nakamura ate the pinfall, people looked genuinely flabbergasted. The move that laid out The King of Strong Style was this lone Khallas.

This finisher made it onto this list simply because of the emotion it evoked. That's not necessarily a good thing. The Modern Day Maharaja is still the champ, like it or not. Everything else on this list is fairly positive from here on out.
