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.

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, VOL. 1:

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.

I'd have to say that the best card that had the most to offer as far as competition top to bottom was the original SummerSlam in 1988. The British Bulldogs vs. the Rogeaus, Bad News Brown vs. Ken Patera, Bolsheviks vs. Powers of Pain, and Hercules vs. Jake Roberts are all entertaining and watchable matches. Most of the rest of the card is forgettable. I've never been a big fan of Hulk Hogan's or the the Ultimate Warrior's but their on there too.
The best highlights from the other four discs include Rick Rude vs. the Ultimate Warrior for the IC Championship in 1989; a rematch between the two again in 1990, this time for the WWF Championship, inside a steel cage; "The Match Made in Hell"- Hogan & Warrior vs. Sergeant Slaughter, General Adnan & Colonel Mustafa from 1991; and two outstanding matches involving Bret "The Hitman" Hart, both for the IC Championship: against Mr. Perfect in 1991, and then the British Bulldog at Wembley Stadium in 1992.
However for fans of "The Hitman" if they want to save a little money, both of the aforemetioned IC Championship matches of his are also available on the Bret Hart dvd.
If you're feeling nostalgic for the wrestling of the late 80's and early 90's then this is a good collection for you.

1988- The very first Summerslam in Madison Square Garden and it shows. In the main event, the Megapowers defeated The Megabucks thanks to the rather tame by modern standards of Ms. Elizabeth's skirt. The Ultimate Warrior defeated the Honky Tonk Man to win the Intercontinental Championship and put an end to the longest IC title reign in history. Demolition defended their tag titles against The Hart Foundation, not as good as their Summerslam 90 match, but more than watchable. The rest of the stuff here is mostly squash matches to introduce new characters (Bad News Brown, Koko B. Ware, Powers of Pain.) Or continue feuds (Rude-Roberts and Muraco-Bravo.)

1989- The second Summerslam moved to New Jersey and is perhaps most well known for the underrated tag team opening match between The Brain Busters and The Hart Foundation. As far as wrestling goes that was the best thing on this card flanked by two six man tags between Rockers/Tito Santana vs. Rougaeu Brothers/ Rick Martel and Demolition and King Duggan vs. Andre the Giant and the Twin Towers. Mr. Perfect defeated the Red Rooster, Hercules and Greg the Hammer Valentine fought with Ronnie Garvin at ringside to pester the Hammer, and Ted Dibiase fought Jimmy Snuka just to show the world that he was still around. In the main event, Hulk Hogan teamed with Bruitis Beefcake to battle Randy Savage and Zeus.

1990- One of the first WWF attempts at a double main event as Hulk Hogan battled Earthquake while WWF champion Ultimate Warrior defended his title against Ravishing Rick Rude inside a steel cage, although lovers of blood will be disappointed because the cage rarely comes into play + 1990 WWF is similar to the WWE of today.
