Who would of guessed that the host of Summer Slam Jon Stewart would steal the show? Summer Slam 2015 was a pretty well put together show, with some real big high lights, but also a lot of let down, expesically in the main event. There were a few matches that were incredibly forgettable that I wont even give the time of day. (Ziggler vs Rusev, Sheamus vs Orton, Divas match, Intercontinetal Triple Threat).
4 Way Tag Team Match:
Titus Oneil is just fun to watch. When he comes in and just clears house, every one loves it. Prime Time players lost their tag belts, but atleast they lost them in a entertaining match. New Day came out victorious, and they actually got the crowd behind them. Granted, there were still the New Day sucks chants, but that is always going to happen. Some great spots by Sin Cara. Its great having Luchadores in matches because they know what the crowd wants. High flying action, flips, and cool moves. And having a midget get involved in the match just makes things funny. Expecially when they get planted on the outside of the ring. This match stole the show for me. I would recommend giving it a bid.
The Wyatt Family vs The Shield (kind of):
I thought this match would of been the sleeper of the night, the one that the crowd was super into. It was still a good match, we saw a lot of out of the ring brawling, which is expected at this point with the Lunatic Fringe Dean Ambrose. Roman Reigns was no where to be found, literally, for a large chunk of the match. Even the crowd started “Roman is sleeping!” for a solid minuete. Like literally, where was he? I was expecting either a heel turn from Ambrose or even a return for Reigns cousin, The Rock. Obvsiouly expecting one of those two things to happen and having none come true is a dissapointment, but I really liked this match.
Seth Rollins vs John Cena (Belt for Belt Match):
First off, show stealer was Seth Rollin’s new white on white outfit. Legit fire. Loved it. You got to throw your oppenett off before the match somehow, and coming out dressed like a power ranger was awesome.
This match had that main event feel to it. It actually meant something, the belt that people care about was on the line. Will Cena become a 16 time world champion, or will Seth Rollins weasel his way out of another match? Seth Rollins really carried this match in my opinion. This guy has it all. There is a reason HHH made him the champion. This guy is legit. High flying moves, jumping over the ropes, hell, he hit a frog splash that was as good as Eddie Guerrero. John Cena had some good spots, but also missed a spring board stunner. Always awkward when a wrestler misses a move, such a fail, the crowd goes silent and then starts chanting “You Fucked Up”. I really thought Cena was going to walk away champion, but when the referee was down, Jon Stewart came to the rescue. If you don’t know, Jon Stewart and Seth Rollins have had a beef for almost a year now. Stewart turned heel last night and hit Cena with a chair, making sure Seth Rollins got the win. An unexpected ending, that I thought was a perfect way to end an awesome match. Now I wonder whats next for Seth? And what the hell are they going to do with the US Title?
And finally our main event. The Undertaker vs Brock Lesnar:
Up until the screwy ending, this match was a classic. Two guys that hate each other, one seeking revenge, and one looking to cement his name and retire the Dead Man. We saw a spot where Lesnar F’5d Undetaker threw the announce table. Lesnar laughing while covered in blood will never get old. The guy is tapped. I am still dissapointed in this finish though. Lesnar made Undertaker tap out, but the referee never saw it, but the bell ringer did and ended the match. As the ref and ringer argued, Taker hit Lesnar with a low blow from behind, which I think is his new go to heel move. After the low blow, Taker gets Lesnar in Hell’s gate and the ref stops the match because Lesnar was unresponsive, but not after we got to see this.
A stupid finish to what was a great match. I have no clue where WWE is going to go from here. All I know is Paul Heyman is not going to be a happy man tonight on Raw. We’ll see if WWE Creative can somehow get this mess sorted out. Only time will tell.
