TRIU WWE Summer Slam Review (8/23/15)...



Barclays Center in Brooklyn, NY WWE Summer Slam…


                                                                                   I came into this Summer Slam with high expectations and I wasn’t disappointed. The PPV opened hot with a great one on one match between Orton and Sheamus and just took off from there. The surprise ending to the Rollins vs. Cena match, was about the only part I didn’t see coming in any scenario. Overall this was one of the best PPV’s of the year which is why I gave it such a high grade!!! 


Fatal 4 Way Tag Team Match (WWE Tag Team Titles): © PTP vs. Los Matadores vs. Lucha Dragons vs. New Day (Winners: New Day via Pin Fall): This match deserved to be on the main card as one of the early favorites for match of the night. The finishing flurry left everyone confused the New Day came out as the NEW Tag Team champs for the 2nd time. This was AWESOME!!...

Triple Threat Match (WWE IC Title): © Ryback vs. Big Show vs The Miz (Winner: © Ryback via Pin Fall): This was a well deserved victory for the Big Guy, both Miz and Show had their stratigies to try to distract the champ from his goal. In the end Ryback capitalized on a Big Show KO punch and pinned Miz for the victory…

Tag Team Grudge Match: The Wyatt Family vs. Dean Ambrose & Roman Reigns (Winners: Reigns & Ambrose via Pin Fall): This was another brutal match between four men who know each other well. Both Wyatt and Harper were dominant early, as the match wore on though Ambrose and Rollins began to heat up!! I think Reigns hit 3-4 Superman punches before Ambrose hit Dirty Deeds on Wyatt for the win…

Tag Team Grudge Match: Stephen Amell & Neville vs. Stardust & King Barrett (Winners: Amell & Neville via Pin Fall): Mr Amell put on one of the best performances I have seen by a Actor at a WWE event. He took a dive off the top rope and looked pretty good in the ring taking a beating. Overall the star got the win and Neville got the pin…

Singles Grudge Match: Kevin Owens vs. Cesaro (Winner: Kevin Owens via Pin Fall): This was by far my favorite match of the night. These two gladiators put each other through the ringer and the victor really earned it. In the end it took a move off the top rope and a pop up power bomb to finich off the swiss superman…

Three Team Elimination Match: Team Bella vs. B.A.D. vs. P.C.B (Winner: Team PCB via Pin Fall): As I predicted this match would be awesome and it was. It had so many moments I think all of the girl got a moment in to shine. The 1st elimination saw Team Bella get the pin to take out Team BAD. In the end though team PCB proved to be too much as they got hot and got the victory!!...

Singles Grudge Match: Dolph Ziggler w/Lana vs. Rusev w/Summer Rea (Winner: Double Count Out): It was a brutal match from beginning to end. Of course Lana and Summer had to get involved and cause a distraction for the competitors. The finish saw both men unable to get back before the 10 count and no one gets the win…

Singles Grudge Match: Brock Lesnar w/Paul Heyman vs. The Undertaker (Winner: Taker via Submission): In what was considered to be a match that was almost 2 years in the making. The dead man was looking for revenge and he got it. This match was great and even left the fans wanting more as they were given a controversial finish to the biggest event of the summer. So kudos to WWE and Kudos to Lesnar and Taker for an amazing match…

Singles Grudge Match: Randy Orton vs. Sheamus (Winner: Sheamus via Pinfall): This was a excellent match between 2 of WWE’s veteran wrestlers. After a solid back and forth I honestly thought Orton was headed for the win, Sheamus hit him with a series of Brough Kicks for the pin and the win…

Title For Title Singles Match: © John Cena vs. © Seth Rollins (Winner: © Seth Rollins via Pin Fall): In a match that shocked the world almost as much as the ending of the streak. Seth Rollins is the 1st man to hold the US and WWE Titles at the same time. In what was a great match that was spoiled by the finish 2 gladiators fought valiantly and the deciding factor was the Summer Slam host Jon Stewart!!...

Overall Rating: A+ This PPV had everything I could want!!
