4.0 out of 5 stars Two very different PPVs from post-Hogan WWE 2 July 2008
Verified Purchase
These Silver Vision 'Tagged Classics' don't come with any extras or frills, but we should be damned glad we can see these excellent classic events in any form. As there are two of these pay per views (PPVs) in this set, I have reviewed them separately:

Summerslam 92

I remember Summerslam 92 well. One because it was the first (and still only) major WWE pay per view held outside of North America, and two because I was there. Looking back at my 10-year-old's perspective, it was an amazing event. 80,000 people at the old Wembley Stadium, a huge lighting and video screen rig over the ring and the whole setting bathed in sunshine. Time has not eroded those memories and watching the whole event back certainly doesn't take any of the magic away. This version of the shows includes all three dark matches as well, which is excellent as the PPV version at the time (shown on a two day delay due to timing issues in the US) excluded these. The matches themselves are often poor and sometimes only mildly exciting, but the unique atmosphere and spectacle holds your attention so well that it almost doesn't matter.

I say almost, because you can't get past the main downside of Summerslam 92. As with every PPV or large event the WWE hold in the UK, it is treated somewhat with contempt. One can't help but get the feeling that many of the matches were rushed, thrown together late, involve a patronising number of cheap comedy spots and come with very little back-story. Okay, so in those days many matches didn't really have a storyline, but the ones used here were pretty lame even at the time. The Mr.

SummerSlam 1992 is without doubt the WWF's most famous event not to have taken place in North America and it's difficult to see that, outside of bringing WrestleMania to these shores, the WWE could fill Wembley Stadium to the rafters for an event like this in 2010. Given the sheer amount of WWE shows we can see on these shores these days it's difficult to appreciate the novelty value that seeing SummerSlam in the UK must have had. That the WWE had the sense to book Davey Boy Smith in an Intercontinental Title match meant that the atmosphere was electric (and again, can you imagine a British wrestler challenging for the IC title having such an impact today?).

Hart/Smith is genuinely one of the greatest WWF bouts of the era and the temptation is to label SS 92 as a one-match card. It is, however, a little more than that,if only by the skin of it's teeth. Whilst Ric Flair at ringside and the lack of a clean finish hurt the World Title match between Randy Savage and The Ultimate Warrior is dramatic and is in some senses a forgotten mini-classic. Shawn Michaels and Rick Martel have an entertaining tussle over the love of Sensational Sherri and the opener between The Legion of Doom and Money Inc. is more than adequate. Sadly the rest of the card is largely useless; The Undertaker against Kamala and Nailz against Virgil are abysmal and whilst the meeting between Crush and the Repo Man might be slightly interesting pitting as it does two former members of Demolition against each other (a fact not acknowledged by the WWF at the time of course) it's still a bomb.

1993's SummerSlam largely was built around the attempt to make Lex Luger the new Hulk Hogan. We all know that failed, but you have to say that the WWF couldn't have done much more than they did in trying.

4.0 out of 5 stars happy days hey 21 Aug 2008
By sean paul mccann VINE VOICE
I started getting into the WWF,as it was then,in late 1991,in 1992 we had the greatest royal rumble of them all perhaps and a cracking wrestlemania followed that,then came one of the most hyped events of my lifetime in wrestling due to the fact that the event was staged in wembley stadium in england,granted i am not from the uk as i am irish but the publicity and sense of euphoria was shattering and i was swept up in it big time.
The event is largely considered one of the great events in wrestling history,granted there is the odd match that has a sense of 'filler' about it but the quality of those involved and the superb crowd who screamed their hearts out ensured that this event would be talked about for an age.
The event opened with a six man tag as the bushwackers and hacksaw jim duggan went up against the nasty boys and the mountie.This match was decent enough,it did drag a little in parts but then it improved and the crowd went bananas and that guaranteed that the crowd would then be on good voice from this point on so with that in mind this was a good opener.
Papa shango fought tito santana next in a good match,there wasnt much to fault here and some good moves can be seen here.
The legion of doom fought money inc. next in a really good match,two great tag teams who fought out some great matches and really battled hard here,there wasnt much to seperate them in truth,great skills and determination were the order of the day and i was very pleased with this match.
virgil fought nailz next,this match was short and not so sweet,there wasnt much to discuss here,i guess you could call it a squash match but it may not even have been worthy of that.
