5.0 out of 5 stars "Feel The Heat" Of The First Five Years January 14, 2009
1988 - The very first event from Madison Square Garden & mostly came off as a 3 hour edition of Saturday Night's Main Event instead of how WrestleMania was later developed as most matches were just here with little to no buildup. Standout matches & moments feature the main event tag team match with Jesse Ventura as the referee between the Mega Powers (Hogan & Savage) vs. the Mega Bucks (Dibiase & Andre) that had an ending with Ms. Elizabeth that had every man in the arena distracted...including the wrestlers, the record setting Intercontinental Championship reign by the Honky Tonk Man ending in the blink of an eye by the Ultimate Warrior, and tag matches pitting the Hart Foundation vs. Demolition & British Bulldogs vs. Fabulous Rougeau Brothers.

1989 - "Feel The Heat" here as this edition of SummerSlam was headlined by the feud based off their movie 'No Holds Barred' with Hulk Hogan teaming with Brutus Beefcake vs. Zues & Randy Savage with Sensational Sherri. Other standout matches & highlights here include the only SummerSlam appearence of ex-4 Horsemen members Arn Anderson & Tully Blanchard as the Brain Busters vs. Hart Foundation, Dusty Rhodes vs. Honky Tonk Man, Rick Martel & Fabulous Rougeaus vs. Tito Santana & Rockers, Jim Duggan transforming into "King Demolition" for one night to team with Demolition against one of the largest teams ever in Andre The Giant & Twin Towers (Big Boss Man & Akeem), and one of the most underrated performances from Ultimate Warrior in his WrestleMania V rematch against Intercontinental Champion Rick Rude.

1990 - "The Heat Returns" as this SummerSlam was the first one where most of the matches throughout the card started having the storyline buildup & purpose behind them.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Early Years Of SummerSlam! February 16, 2010
Since its inception in 1988, SummerSlam has become one of the premier events on the WWE calendar behind The Royal Rumble, Survivor Series and (of course) WrestleMania. For this review, because they were WWF for many of these events in this set, I will refer to the titles with the WWF tag line. Only SS events when they became WWE will I call them such.

Anyway, let's get to it. I will do it by volumes and I hope you people reading this don't mind if I throw some brief history tibits in too:


SummerSlam 1988

The Rougeau Brothers Vs. The British Bulldogs - In the first match ever at SummerSlam, Jacque and Raymond Rougeau took on former WWF Tag Team Champions The British Bulldogs. They were comprised of The Dynamite Kid (Tom Billington) and the late Davey Boy Smith (who would later use the Bulldog name as a singles wrestler). While not one of the best tag team contests out there, it was a good opener with good tags, good action and dirty tactics on the part of both teams. Ends in a draw when Jacque distracted the referee as TDK had Raymond pinned after a diving headbutt from a military press from Davey Boy Smith!

Bad News Brown (RIP) Vs. Ken Patera - BNB was on a bit of a hot streak at this point as he took on former weightlifting Olympian and former I-C champion Ken Patera. The match was slow and methotical but kept short. Ends when BNB hits his "ghetto blaster" (enziguri) kick on Patera for the pin.

"Ravishing" Rick Rude (RIP) Vs. The Junkyard Dog (RIP) - In his only SummerSlam appearance, the JYD took on "The Ravishing One" in a surprisingly fast paced contest! Not a great one but not bad.

4.0 out of 5 stars antholgy for the ages May 30, 2009
great set put out by wwe.
I got this to see the very first summerslam which I had not seen since it's orignal broadcast on ppv.
If you remeber and liked the wwf/wwe during this time you're sure to like this. all the shows are pretty good; summer slam '90 was pretty weak; but the other four make up for this.
Great for a dose of nostalgia.
on a strabge side note; there are several instances (although none come to mind immediatly) of editing.
for instance a match will be going and the combatants are on the floor, then sudden they are in the ring, but you really dont' notice as they waited for the jump as they are going into the ring. make any sense...
I dont know if I'm getting this out right, but it doesnt really detract from the shows nor the action, just like some one occasionally flash forwarded. its just weird cause all 5 shows were the standard 3 hrs and all 5 discs are 3 hrs each so i font really see the need.
didnt notice any annoying blurring of the old wwf logo (I hate that)
but it does have the whole over-dubbed new entrance music for certain athletes. minor quibble though.
also didnt realize as a kid how much of the show is interviews; therre are at least 2-3 between matches, somethimes the same superstar (hogan) is interviewed before, before again, and after the match.
each disc has an average of about 8 matches (with some great undercard matches totally forgotten by me such as roberts vs hercules ss89; irs vs the hammer ss'91) but when I was a kid watching it seemed like there were way more matches and less talking; which is a complaint I have w/ current wwe..too much talkie not enough violence.
recommended; get out your old hogan gear and sit back and relax..take it all in brother!!!!
