SummerSlam 2017
« on: August 20, 2017, 05:32:12 PM »
Wow, this show is starting very early, like a WrestleMania.  There are a ton of matches on this card.  Surprising seeing the Hardys and Miz wrestling in front of a half empty arena 90 minutes before the main show starts.

Usos and The New Day stole the show again.

Corbyn's star is fading fast, he is stalling as a worker. He needs to stop screaming every 3 seconds during a match, very hokey 1980's stuff. I bet they regret booking him to win the briefcase now.

At least Corbin had a small chance to win, maybe he goes after Cena on Raw?


The cruiserweight matches are losing their magic.

Cena's SummerSlam losing streak is over.

I am surprised Corbin has faded so fast since winning Money in the Bank 2 months ago. Does Corbin have backstage heat like Enzo?

Great women's match. Poor Natalya, everyone expected Carmella to show up, they weren't worried about her.

Man, the crowd was not with Enzo's opening.  When backstage hear meets bad heat, its a very bad sign.

Read that management is down on him because he is regressing as a performer and I have to agree. He had a good run in NXT where he played the arrogant heel who didn't care but now he is like an 80's heel managed by Bobby Heenan. Company has so much talent you have to be on at all times or you're done.

So, they opened with Corbin, then had Natalya, the worst female wrestler in the company win the title cleanly and now a slow Big Show match. Absolutely murdering this crowd in the first hour.

Contender for Worst MOTY. Horrible match, horrible booking, no heat. This show is really bad so far, gonna take more than the Main to save it.

Cass has potential but they need to get him away from Enzo quickly.  When the camera pulls away from action to show baby oil, that's bad.

Loved Naomi's emotional reaction to losing the title.  Naomi and Natalya really delivered above my expectations.

The No Mercy promo was awesome.

And that's how you bury someone, folks.  Poor Rusev.

What the heck was wrong with Sashas jacket. Boss was backwards. She needed to be in a mirror.

I can only imagine the Rusev thing was for time constraints.

The Angle and Daniel Bryan backstage segment was the highlight of the first hour. 

I wish PWG had gotten to do Angle vs. Danielson in 06.  Maybe if the doctors clear them, we can get it at a WrestleMania.

I am a Bliss fan.  I think putting the title on Sasha is a mistake.  Alexa has a feeling of being Trish Stratus reincarnated.

Sasha already has 4 title reigns. That belt just gets passed around too much so ti loses it's credibility. No victory is seen as major and that hurts the story behind it.

The Finn match was the fan payoff for the night.  Wyatt is still underutilized.

Raws tag titles have been exchanged by 2 teams of singles wrestlers. Raw needs a tag team transfusion.

Maybe Owens and AJ can save the match.

Good match but too many Shane close-ups.
