Editorial Reviews

For the 21st consecutive year, the Superstars of WWE come together for the Biggest Party of the Summer at SummerSlam. Some of WWE's most memorable moments have come on the SummerSlam stage, and last year's event, which saw the triumphant return of Triple H and Rey Mysterio, was no exception. This year will see some intense rivalries come to a head, and many of the biggest superstars in WWE will participate in career-defining moments.

4.0 out of 5 stars WWE's Summer Series Returns To Form September 17, 2008
I posted a review for the WWE SUMMERSLAM ANTHOLOGY, which I concluded that this PPV series was becoming "one long cold shower". Last year's SUMMERSLAM was hyped as "The Biggest Party of the Summer", but I felt it was "The Worst Party of The Year".

However, I'm pleased to say that WWE's "Biggest Blockbuster of the Summer" lives up to its name.

*******************************

1) Jeff Hardy v. M.V.P.
---I wasn't really looking forward to this one, because both men's strange offense doesn't work with a lot of superstars. But I was pleasantly surprised to see both Jeff and Porter use unique reversals and sensible wrestling from bell to bell. Seeing these guys put on a match this good makes me regret losing interest in recent weeks.
"7.0 / 10"
-------------------------------------

2) Winners Take All
Mickie James (Women's champion) &
Kofi Kingston (Intercontinental champion)
v. Santino Marella & Beth Phoenix
---I was also completely surprised by this tag team contest. This is probably the best Intergender Match I've ever seen. For starters, Marella & Phoenix have such terrific chemistry; I'd be surprised if they weren't a real couple. The match flows very well, as each person gets to look good before the finish comes. But most of all, this whole scenario is flat-out hilarious! It's filled with little facial expressions and great comedic timing, especially from "Glamarella". Trust me, just give this one a look. You won't regret it.
"7.0 / 10"
-------------------------------------

***I actually want to address Shawn Michaels' promo, because it's gotten mixed reactions from people. I personally think everyone involved with this angle has done a tremendous job.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not A Summer Blockbuster But Enjoyable August 22, 2008
Jeff Hardy vs. MVP - Hardy got control of the match early before MVP took over after one hell of a release belly to belly suplex that landed Jeff right on the top of his neck. MVP focused on the neck & dominated for the rest of the bout before Jeff started to gain some momentum. From here, Shelton Benjamin made an unknown appearence distracting Jeff for MVP to capitilize & get the win.

Intercontinental Champion Kofi Kingston & Womens Champion Mickie James vs. Santino Marella & Beth Phoenix a.k.a. "Glamorella" - This match went a little over 5 minutes & was watchable anything really noteworthy past some entertaining moments like Santino jumping into Beth's arms at one point which looked like something straight out of the old Shaggy & Scooby Doo cartoons. In the end, Beth lead her team to win both championships & did a victory walk afterwards...with Santino on her shoulders.

Right out here was the big announcement by Shawn Michaels (who was accompanied by his wife) which was that he was going to retire because of his eye & other mounting injuries. From here, Chris Jericho came out & had a verbal confronation with HBK in regards to why he was really retiring before Y2J "accidently" punched Shawn's wife right in the face & knocking her out. Eventhough this was a real good verbal interaction, this should have been saved for RAW instead of taking time away from other matches on the PPV that people payed for like.......

ECW Champion Mark Henry vs. Matt Hardy - ......this one. This is the forth time in a little over a year (Judgment Day '07, No Mercy '07, WrestleMania XIV) that the ECW Title match got around a minute of time. This was a wrestlecrap moment if there ever was one.

3.0 out of 5 stars A Good, Not Great, PPV August 18, 2008
I watched this Summerslam on PPV last night when it aired, and it was an alright PPV. Here is how I rate the matches.

Jeff Hardy vs MVP-It was a good opening match that got the show rolling pretty well. The match overall was decent. 3/5

MVP wins

Winner Takes All Match, Mickie James and Kofi Kingston vs Beth Phoenix and Santino Marella-No where close to good. Boring match all the way through and short. I expected it to be atleast a little bit better. 1/5

Beth and Santino win, New Champs

HBK's retirement announcement-Very surprising, HBK announces retirement and Jericho comes out and ends up hitting HBK's wife by accident! I wont be surprised if HBK stays for 1 final fight. (Not a Match-No Rating)

Matt Hardy vs Mark Henry (ECW Championship)-Matt Hardy within 20 seconds hits the Twist of Fate and had the win when Tony Atlas pulls him out of the ring to get Mark Henry DQ'ed. Atlas attacks Matt and Jeff Hardy runs out to his brothers aid and they double suplex Mark Henry. Henry retains title, Hardy gets win. 1/5

CM Punk vs JBL (World Heavyweight Championship)- A pretty good match, not that long, and not close to what I expected. Still a good match. 3

CM Punk Wins, Retains

Triple H vs The Great Khali (WWE Championship)-Decent Match. Overall not that great. Khali puts in holds and the Khali Vice Grip throughout the whole match.

Triple H Wins, Retains

John Cena vs Batista-Good overall match, not as good as expected. Decent throughout and than good at the end. 3.5/5

Batista Wins

MAIN EVENT-Undertaker vs Edge (Hell In A Cell)-Basically one of the greatest matches ever! Edge came into the match with a sadistic attitude and made it a hell of a match.
