Summerslam,often i'm sure seen as what should be one of the best events of the year,this year it doesn't disappoint.
It starts of nicely with a six man tag as REY MYSTERIO teams up with JOHN MORRISON & KOFI KINGSTON to take on MIZ along with R-TRUTH & ALBERTO DEL RIO,this is certainly a great match to get things going with each wrestler getting a few highspots in,nothing to grumble about.
Then we have a newly popular SHEAMUS taking on the mighty MARK HENRY,a man on a mission to get noticed,and get noticed he does. This is a really good addition to the card,SHEAMUS proving his worth as HENRY shows why he is the world's strongest man,a really impresive finsih too,one to be remembered.
Up next is KELLY KELLY taking on the formidable BETH PHOENIX,with the diva's belt on the line. A fair match really for a diva's match,with KELLY holding her own and BETH displaying her strength and determination to subvert who she sees as inferior. If it wasn't for what i would call an unlikely ending,this would've pleased me a great deal.
Next we have DANIEL BRYAN vs WADE BARRET,a solid enough encounter with WADE'S girth being an obvious obstacle for DANIEL to overcome. This match certainly keeps the show running along nicely.
RANDY ORTON takes on CHRISTIAN next in a no hold's barred match for the heavyweight title. A really solid encounter with lots of action. A battle including tables being crashed through and bodies receiving a great deal of pain,lasts for a really decent time too,certainly a highlight of a great feud.
So the main event now and JOHN CENA needs to prove his worth against C.M. PUNK to decide who is the WWE champion. To make things more interesting,TRIPLE H has the job of special ref',so you know he won't take any crap.
This match may not quite live up to their previous match (some task!),but it does give plenty of enjoyment with more near falls and surprising moves to keep fans thrilled throughout and HHH keeps to his word of being a fair ref'. Then comes the end,well it got fans talking,a bit of controversy's no bad thing when it's done this well. And just when you think it's over...the twist! Some may well have seen it coming,but like it or not,it made an impact. An interesting ending to a top event,next year's SUMMERSLAM'S got some work to beat this one.
A really good event. It may not be as good as MONEY IN THE BANK 2011,but it's not far off!
