My views on Summerslam in brief…
Ziggler/Jericho = YEAHHH
Castagnoli winning gold = YEAHHH
Miz looking like a wrestler for the first time in years = YEAHHH
Punk outsmarting Cena = YEAHHH
Bryan vs. Kane = YEAHHH
Fred Durst getting booed = YEAHHH
Rick Rubin’s beard = YEAHHH
Triple H vs. Bork = YEAHHH YEAHHH YEAHHH
In conclusion = YEAHHH
The only bad things are just nit-picking really. The Walls of Jericho getting an instant submission after Jericho hadn’t worked the legs of Ziggler at all, for example. Also I didn’t watch the pre-show because I thought DUH, IT’S THE PRE-SHOW, NOTHING HAPPENS ON IT and thus missed Claudio’s win. I did not care in the slightest for ADR/Sheamus but the crowd made noise for everything ADR did which elevated it to ‘decent crap I don’t care about.’
I really enjoyed the main event because of Brock Lesnar’s wrestling style. He wrestles a completely believable style and he looks like a real monster (unlike when he’s talking and ”feeling”) rather than the Big Show/Mark Henry type of monster WWE enjoys ruining. And he WON too!
- Crowd chanted ”KOBE BRYANT” during the Prime Time Players match. if they really wanted to show their support for A.W. they should have chanted ”VOTE FOR LINDA.”
- For the Non-Brits: Piers Morgan is an unlikable newspaper editor who has somehow made a transition to interviewing and presenting, despite having no charisma. Seeing him appear on a WWE PPV is one of the strangest things I’ve seen in wrestling.
- Triple H attempted to get sympathy from the crowd after losing. The first noises from the crowd however were ”YOU TAPPED OUT!”
- The white guy band’s song not only sounded exactly the same as Keep On Movin’ by 5IVE but the guitar solo no-showed.
