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.

The complete programs for the first five Summerslam pay per views vintage 1988-1992. If you enjoyed the stars of this era (Hulk Hogan, Randy Savage, Rick Rude, Ultimate Warrior, Million Dollar Man, Mr. Perfect, etc.), you'll probably enjoy these programs. Each year is on a separate DVD with story lines and title matches that are period relevant. Jesse Ventura handles the announcing chores while Mean Gene does the interviews between matches. You even get the wedding of the Macho Man and Miss Elizabeth. It's good to see these personalities in their prime once more---especially considering how many of them have passed on in the ensuing years.

Great old school wrestling.There are 5 discs in this package. All of them are GREAT. I like Gorilla Monsoon announcing. He only announces on the first disc, but 'Rowdy' Roddy Piper announces on two of the discs. He is funny and knowledgeable. Bobby 'the brain' Heenan is part of another one, and I never heard of the announcer on the fifth one. To get to the wrestling, there are two great matches from Brett 'the hitman' Hart, along with many other matches. One of Brett's is him vs.Mr. Perfect, and the other one is him vs. The British Bulldog. Amazing action in both of them. I also like Demolition and the Powers Of Pain, who the British audience loved. There are 12 title matches, plus many interviews from 'Mean Gene' Okerland. There are bound to be one of your favorites in this incredible wrestling extravaganza.

so throw another WWF classic dvd on the grill. The refreshments are cold and crisp and to quench your thirst from the dog days of summer, your gonna need a tall glass of lemonade when you sit down and watch Summerslam volume 1. The appetizers are a good enough to hold your stomach over until the main courses of hogans, warriors, and macho mans. So put on those tank tops and flip flops, and make sure you apply a generous layer of sun block, the action coming from the summerslam volume 1 dvd is HOTTT
