Overall Thoughts: I did say on the Predictions that this year’s SummerSlam has some big shoes to fill based on last year’s. And let me tell you, it did and then some.
Great opener with the Intercontinental Championship Match. Miz and Ziggler continues to have amazing chemistry in the ring and it looks like we may have a good IC title feud in our hands. Don’t mess it up, WWE! The Divas Title match was also good but it was criminally short. Hopefully they can have a blowoff match where the two get more time and showcase more because they were starting to get there in this match but they had to keep it short. I guess the WWE forgot how the Flag Match works or they decided to change it at the last minute. Anyway, it was still a good match and told a great story. The crowd really helped the match even more. The lumberjack match went beyond all my expectations and it’s all based on Rollins and Ambrose. It was intense, it was fun to watch and I look forward to more on the feud. Jericho/Wyatt was a LOT better than their Battleground showdown as I expected that it would and the right guy won on that night. Can’t wait for the Rubber Match at Night Of Champions. Stephanie McMahon vs. Brie Bella had one of the Best Divas Matches of the year right next to Natalya vs. Charlotte back at NXT Takeover. Stephanie looks JACKED in her attire and look. She is in no way the way she was back in 2000-2001…She has upgraded. Plus, her moveset had an upgrade too as she had the best match of her career after 10 Years away from the ring. Brie was great also and that what makes the match good. The Nikki Bella heel turn was expected but pulled off very well. I’m just hoping it’s not Nikki being reluctant and had no choice to turn heel or she would be fired or whatever because that didn’t go well the last time it happened. (I’m looking right at you, Big Show of last year) Reigns-Orton was a good match, but you can tell the crowd was out of it after the events of the last match and they got the “Death Spot” in the card. Now…Let’s Talk about the Main Event…Say it with me, kids…#BEATEMDOWN!!! I never thought that the match would be as one-sided as it was…Especially with the man being dominated is John Cena…WWE’s #1 Guy…This Proves how much of a beast Brock is and it was the match that we would have gotten at Extreme Rules 2012…16 German Suplexes…16 GERMAN SUPLEXES!!! MY GOODNESS!!! The big question is what’s next in all of this…Guess we will find out on RAW this Monday.
Overall, this is one of if not THE Best Pay Per Views in 2014…Check it out!!!
