Overall Thoughts: One of the best SummerSlams ever with two of the best SummerSlam matches ever. But lets go through the card here. The Kick-Off match was a decent opening with a decent ending to make neither man look weak. The opener was kind of a disappointment for me. This was Bray Wyatt’s in ring debut and in a unique version of an Inferno Match but everything seemed off. Rhodes/Sandow put out a great match for the time given to them. Del Rio/Christian was a great and underrated match that is worth checking out. The Divas Match wasn’t too bad. And the Mixed Tag was stuck in the death spot in the card but did the best they could under the circumstances.

Okay, onto the big matches and boy are they big matches. Punk/Lesnar was just phenomenal! It smashed through all the high expectations and more. It was match of the night until the main event which top THAT match.

On the subject of Cena/Bryan…Heading in, it had a lot to live up to based on the hype towards the match and did they live up to that?! You damn right they did. Both men have awesome chemistry and the crowd helped made this match better than it was…Also, Bryan was put over clean against Cena. I swore the IWC was throwing a huge parade after the 3 Count was made. Twitter exploded with Tweets about Bryan’s win…Then Orton showed up…Triple H Pedigrees Bryan and Orton cashed in…HOLY CRAP! What an ending! Have the fans get on a huge emotional high and then BAM! Down it went…If you were mad because of the Cash-In…Congrats, they got you and they got you good. And thus it began with the chain of events that happened after that SummerSlam. Anyways, this SummerSlam is Awesome! One of the Best SummerSlams ever and it is worth checking out!
