"Undertaker sends Edge, straight to hell",
This review is from: WWE - Summerslam 2008 [DVD] (DVD)
1. Jeff Hardy vs M.V.P 3/5
Good opener to the pay-per-view and a very good match from M.V.P. M.V.P for me totally dominated this match, and did a lot of countering in this match, where he was dodging most of Jeff's high flying moves, which did in fact lead M.V.P to victory.
2. Mickie James & Kofi Kingston vs Santino Marella & Beth Phoenix (Winner takes all) 3/5
Not bad for what it was, and a lot of good mixed tag team action from both teams. It did end however with Santino and Beth being victorious, and Santino leaving new WWE Intercontinental and Beth leaving new WWE Women's Champion.
3. Matt Hardy vs Mark Henry (ECW Championship) 0/5
Oh dear, what a huge let down to the pay-per-view. This match did not even last a second and will not go into too much detail, this could have been a good match, but was a real disappointment.
4. CM Punk vs JBL (World Heavyweight Championship) 3/5
Pretty good match for the World Heavyweight Championship, where I have to admit that JBL did a lot of good stuff in this match. JBL totally dominated Punk for most parts of this match, but Punk weren't going to be treated as a cheap champion, and hit the GTS on JBL, to remain World Heavyweight Champion.
5. Great Khali vs Triple H (WWE Championship) 3/5
Pretty good match for the WWE Championship, where the Great Khali didn't do too bad, but still not the best of all WWE superstars. He did however did take a lot out of the WWE Champion Triple H, but Triple H out of nowhere hit the Pedigree on the Great Khali, which led Triple H to victory, and remains the WWE Champion.
6. John Cena vs Batista 4/5
Match of the night for me, where these two lock horns for the first time. A match that I thought we'd never see, actually happened at the grandest summer pay-per-view, known as Summerslam. A lot of great action in this one and a lot of domination from both superstars, who wanted to prove a point that they are the best in WWE. This match featured Cena taking a huge Batista bomb in mid air and Batista picking up the victory over one of his best challengers in WWE.
7. Edge vs Undertaker (Hell in a Cell) 4/5
To me this didn't feel like a Hell in a Cell match, as to me it felt like an extreme rules match, that consisted more of weapon action than cell action. Edge surprisingly dominated the Undertaker and did a lot of countering, whilst reversing some of the Undertaker's strikes and power moves. The match itself though was still good and featured a lot of great spots, including Edge spearing the Undertaker through the cell and through an announcers table. In the end though it was Undertaker who gave Edge the Tombstone and a victory once again inside Satan's structure, but Undertaker wasn't finished as he sent Edge to hell through the ring mat off a ladder, which was then set a blaze by the Undertaker.
Overall this was a good Summerslam event, though wouldn't put in my top three, but still an enjoyable event to sit through.
