TRIU WWE SummerSlam Review (8/18/13)…

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                             This year’s Summer Slam took place at the Staples Center in Los Angeles, CA and it was one hell of a show folks. If you missed this year you picked the wrong year to miss. We opened with a amazing match between RVD and © Dean Ambrose for the US title and it didn’t disappoint. The Ring of Fire match was a disappointment only in the fact that Bray Wyatt needed the Family in order to beat Kane and it made him look weak as a villain. The WHC Match made me smile because if these are Christian’s final matches in WWE I think this was another great one from Captain Charisma. The 2 Main Events (Lesner vs. Punk/ © Cena vs. Bryan) brought the house down as we didn’t get the endings that we wanted out of either of the match, Both were a pleasure to get to watch. Now onto those matches…
