4.0 out of 5 stars A MACHO WEDDING AND THE START OF THE BRET ERA!, 4 Aug. 2000
By A Customer
This review is from: WWF: Summerslam 1991 [VHS] (VHS Tape)
I was just 8 years old when Summerslam 91 took place at Madison Square Garden, and it was the first pay per view that I ever saw as a WWF fan. 9 years later I can still honestly say that it is one of my favourite WWF shows of all time.
After a reasonable six man tag to start the night, Summerslam 91 saw its best match with the intercontinental title war between Bret Hart and Mr Perfect. After a long and exciting match with several close falls, Bret won his first WWF singles title on this night with the Sharpshooter - a fact that would become more poignant over the next few years as his career became one of the greatest in WWF history. Well, this was the night his singles career really took off.
Next up, the Natural Disasters demolish the Bushwhackers in a match which sees an appearance from the late Andre the Giant. Then, there's a solid match for the Million Dollar belt, aided by the emotionally charged commentary of Roddy Piper.
The fifth match has a memorable stipulation - the loser spends a night in jail. It's the Boss Man against the Mountie in a technically poor encounter - but the events afterwards at the jail are very funny.
The Legion of Doom finally win the tag team belts in a solid outing with the Nasty Boys, and the crowd really do go wild when the LOD finally score the pinfall. Then there's a dull match between Greg Valentine and IRS before Hulk Hogan and the Ultimate Warrior take on Sgt Slaughter and pals in a 3 on 2 handicap match, refereed by Sid Justice. Hogan and Justice celebrate after a rather tainted victory which would turn out to be the Hulkster's final Summerslam appearance.
The finale of Summerslam 91 is the wedding of Macho Man and Miss Elizabeth. A memorable moment in WWF history, if somewhat tacky, but in years to come perhaps this is what Summerslam 91 will be remembered for the most.
The commentary all night was very good, and there was great chemistry between the late Gorilla Monsoon, Bobby Heenan and Roddy Piper. Bret Hart and Mr Perfect stole the show, but Macho Man and Elizabeth stole the applause at the end of an absolutely classic WWF Pay Per View!
