not a classic summerslam,
This review is from: WWE - Summerslam 2007 [Steel Book DVD] (DVD)
Summerslam 2007 was famed for the return after injury of two key men and they were triple H and rey mysterio so the event had hype there and then but plenty more would be aimed at the event and some of it stuck and some didnt.
The event opened with kane vs finlay and those predicting a brawl were proved to be fortune tellers as this was just that,the crowd didnt make much noise at first so the signs were bad but warmed a bit later in this match,average at best,and not the best way to open an event like summerslam.
The intercontiental championship was up for grabs next in a triple threat match,the champ umaga going up against carlito and mr kennedy,this was a good match even though the crowd didnt have alot to cheer for being that all three men were heels but this was good and the crowd could tell that so they showed their support in the end,pleasing.
Next up was the return of rey,who was covered in grey paint which made him look like a lemon in truth,he went up against chavo in an extremely good match,full of pace and a believable hatred for one another,this was a show stealer in many ways,welcome back rey rey then.
The wwe diva battle was terrible,crowd used this time to get their popcorn,send their texts and comb their hair,terrible,although the winner and i get on well.
A beer drinking contest between MVP and matt hardy was interesting enough especially when hardy broght in a contestant to take his place,the place went wild and this wasnt time wasting at all,this is how segments in pay per views should be done.
The ECW championship was up next,the champ john morrison against cm punk,a good match,good rivals who know each other inside out,no harm in this match.
The return of triple H featured next as he went up against king booker in a shortlived match that wasnt that exciting,the ending was predictable but it was good to see triple return after a long break away.
The world heavyweight title was up for grabs next as the champ khali went up against batista in a lazy enough match that wasnt good at all really and the ending was shoddy and was there to make sure this feud went on,nope,a poor match,you can say no different.
The main event was next and was for the WWE title,the champ john cena pitted against randy orton,this was an epic match where both men had the edge then lost it,then won it,then lost it,but in all of that there was plenty of quality and made for a worthy closer to a mixed enough event,seems alot of people favour the three star review so i shall do the same.
