Live From Summerslam!!! The Jero Review!!

Rate this Entry
What's up friends. This is my first blog so bear with me. I usually just post on the FB comments. Great job with the site by the way fella's. So this was my first ppv that i attended live!! It was pretty damn Awesome!!! I loved the way the stage was set up and as always indoor live pyros are just sweet!! Here are my feelings from the show. BTW its always nice to see it live because you don't have to hear Micheal Cole commentating through the whole thing. He got one of the largest boo's of the night when they announce the commentators.

Pre-show match: Santino vs Cesaro: Santino got a huge pop from the crowd!! He definitely has became a crowd fav. For some reason, i knew he was going to lose that match though, they have just been pushing Cesaro a lot recently. Cesaro's promo was lame and he is pretty lame and needs to work on his wrestling skills, he couldn't even perform basic wrestling moves. The crowd did not like to see Santino lose, esp with all the pre-event activity over the weekend that he was involved with. I give this match a D.

Ziggler vs Jericho: We were all wondering who was going to kick it off. This was a great match. Those two put it all on the line. Jericho got a huge pop, but for a bit there, a good chunk of the crowd was chanting "let's go Ziggler!". When Vicki came out, her screech actually hurt my daughters ears and made her cry, lol!!! The Y2J chants were loud and the crowd was very pleased to see him win. I enjoyed this match a lot. Could of been a show stealer!! I give this match a A. excellent match. My favorite of the night.

Kane vs Daniel Bryan: We made a goat face sign just for this match. It was poorly drawn but pretty funny. Say what you want, but that guy gets the crowd going no matter what he is doing. Kane's entrance is always awesome. The indoor pyro's kick ass. This was actually a pretty good match. Its funny with all the "yes" chants, and I love the way DB plays off the crowd, like it pisses him off. Didn't know who was going to win, but glad DB won. Raw should be funny tonight and goat-face better watch out for the wrath of the Red Monster. I hope this rivalry plays out a little longer. I give this match a B+.

Miz vs Mysterio: The crowd loves Mysterio, he got a huge pop when he came out. This was a good match, but you knew that Miz was going to win because he just got the belt a few weeks back. Anyone else notice that they make Rey lose a lot of matches when a belt is on the line. Miz actually got a pop from the fans when he was starting to win the match, I was surprised he didnt get booed as much as normal. The fans with the good seats, gave Miz a good pop when he was in front of them, he played off the fans well. Miz looked better than normal. Wonder what they are gonna do with Rey now. I gave this match a B.

Shemus vs Del Rio: Del Rio actually got a good pop. I think being in L.A. and having a few more latino fans than normal got him some extra cheers, but he still got his fair share of boo's. The crowd blew up when Shemus came out. He is definitely a favorite. This was actually a good match. It was a pretty funny when everyone starts counting the chest punches. Was funny to see Berto crying in the ring so long after he lost. I guess this one is gonna get dragged out a little longer with the leg on the rope controversy. I was actually expecting Booker T to come out and have the match continue. I liked how Shemus tried to knock Berto's leg off the rope while the ref was counting as well. I would give this one a B+. It was better than I expected.

Primetime Players vs Kofi/R-Truth. The primetime players are a joke. They got booed and heckled, and the truth is, they are just lame. Kofi got a huge pop. That boy can jump. Not much to say about this match. I went and took a piss, cause it got kind of boring. Glad they didnt switch belts though, the Playa's are just lame!!! I give this one a D.

Triple threat match: Cena vs Big Show vs Punk. If CM Punk is a heel, then he is the most popular heel ever. The WWE Universe loves Punk. He got a huge pop when he came out and an even bigger one when he won. Its weird that everyone there seems to be dressed in Cena gear, but that dude gets the loudest boo's of everyone. I just think the crowd like to chant "lets go Cena/Cena sucks". I swear it seemed like Cena spent the whole match on the floor outside the ring. Did anyone else notice that Big Show pretty much dominated the whole match but still lost. I think Punk will keep his belt til Royal Rumble, lose it to the Rock, Rock and Cena rematch at Wrestlemania and Cena gets his belt back. Ugh, I know, but it just seems the way its gonna go. This match was pretty lame. AJ is hot in person. Would of liked her to skip around me. lol. I give this one a C+ and that's only because it was funny watch Big Show thrashing on these guys. I'm glad Punk won though. Curious to see what happens on Raw tonight with the double submission controversy. I was really glad this match was not the main event by the way.

The Main Event. Brock vs Triple H. These two dudes are frickin gigantic. Brock got a pretty decent pop. I like Brock a lot, so i was cheering for him, but HHH is a legend so it was cool to see him live. It was an ok match. It was kinda obvious that Brock was going to win though. i didnt think they would have him lose two ppv matches. I didnt like that he kept using the arm bar. The crowd was chanting "do something different" which was kind of funny. I thought it was weird that HHH started to cry, funny when the crowd was chanting "you tapped out". I would of like to see the sledge hammer get put in this match, but oh well. I gave this one a B, just because it kept me entertained.

All in all, I had a blast, brought my 5 year old daughter and she enjoyed herself. I would of like to have gone to Axxcess but it sold out. That looks pretty cool, esp since you get to meet some of the wrestlers. Well i hope this wasnt boring, just wanted to give you a fan's take from being there live. Till next time!!!

    perfect review. this is just about what i thought of summerslam as well, and in a way i agree about the PTP there still pretty green, but dont get me wrong in time i personally believe they can be an incredible tag team because they already have great chemistry. and the Cena/Punk/Show match i think it was good having that co-main event to keep the whole Cm Punk and Respect thing going because it's making his slow heel turn that much better because unlike most heel turns now days it actually means something. well IMO anyway

    Pretty good review, though I will say that you were far more generous in your grades than I would have been. In my personal opinion, this was probably the worst Summerslam of all time.

    First, that thing about Vicki making her daughter cry made me laugh (not the fact that she cried, but the fact that Vicki caused her to). Anyway, I'd give the Dolph/Y2J match a B+, maybe an A- at most. It was the best match of the night in my opinion, but it could have been better. To me it just felt as if it was too slow paced for the guys involved. With these two I was expecting a fast paced match with a lot of big spots, but we didn't really get much of those. Also, I'm glad Jericho won but the ending didn't sit too well with me. I mean, they're trying to build Ziggler up to "main event" status, yet they have him tap after, like, five seconds in the Walls of Jericho. They could have at least had him kick out of a Codebreaker or maybe hold out longer and put up a bit more of a fight while in the Walls.

    I'd give Kane/D-Bry a B-. I love D-Bry. He's funny, great on the mic, awesome in the ring and not since the height of Stone Cold and The Rock's popularity has someone played the crowd as well as Bryan does. However, I'm tired of the Kane feud. So tired in fact that this match struggled to hold my interest. I still don't mind the AJ/Bryan thing (I have a feeling next week's Raw is going to be funny with the whole anger management classes thing), but they need to lose the Kane aspect of it.

    I was surprised by the Rey/Miz match and would, like you, give it a B. It wasn't a show stealer but it was much better than I expected it to be. Either Miz got better while he was gone or Rey is simply amazing at making others look better than they are.

    Sheamus/ADR gets a B- from me. I'm on the 'ADR Hater' bandwagon. I don't care how good he is in the ring or how good Ricardo is in his role, Del Rio is duller than watching paint dry and I'm baffled as to why he's still in the title picture. I mean, because of him this feud was boring before it even began. The only reason this match gets an above average grade from me is because, for some reason, I like Sheamus (maybe it's because of my love for the Irish) and I enjoyed the ending.

    Kofi & Truth/PTP = F. Boring. Boring. Boring. PTP are boring, Truth and Little Jimmy are boring as faces and Kofi would be better served in the IC/US title picture.

    Punk/Cena/Show sadly gets a C- from me. I had quit watching WWE a while ago for a few months to maybe a year. That was until CM Punk's "Pipebomb" brought me back. However, for the first time since then, I was left very disappointed with a match/segment that involved Punk. Maybe it's because they had Show dominate most of the match which had Punk down and out for a lot of it, but this match was extremely dull. The only things that allowed it to get a passing grade from me was the double submission/restart ending and the fact that Punk retained.

    Lastly, Brock/Triple H gets a D- from me. The hype for this match was built for about three months, yet the end result didn't even come close to living up to it. It absolutely kills my soul to say that Cena/Brock out-performed HHH/Brock. This match was sloppy (something I never thought I'd say about a Triple H match), slow, and boring. While not expecting the same level of violence, the hype for this match had me expecting the same level of intensity as the Triple H/Cactus Jack Street Fight from the 2000 Royal Rumble. The only reason this doesn't get a failing grade from me is because the hype was such that I kept expecting something huge to happen which kept me watching throughout. Boy, was I greatly let down.

    Overall, I'd give the show a C+ which is not good for the so called "Second Biggest PPV of the Year". As I said earlier, in my opinion, the worst Summerslam ever.

    Curiosity got the better of me for SummerSlam. I will concede to the fact that I did watch the relevant matches, meaning I skipped the Tag Team Match and the Kane/Bryan match. And while the experience was probably 10 times better Live, I have to disagree with so many of your grades here. First, Dolph/Y2J was average at best. I find DB boring now so I skipped his match. Sheamus/Del Rio was lame, though when Sheamus lifted ADR up from the cross-arm breaker, andt he "Sheamus" chants started, that was impressive. I feel he solidified himself as a main guy, transcending everyone but Cena. And the HHH/Lesnar match was a pure disgrace. I've only seen very very few people kick out of the Pedigree in my 25+ years of watching wrestling. The fact that Brock, after the second one, popped right up with Kimora, was lame, stupid, just solidified just how horrible the PPV was and WWE is.
