Two hours after SummerSlam ended, and I still don’t know how I feel about the show. I had low expectations going into the show and during the first 90 minutes felt those expectations were easily exceeded.
The opening six-man tag and Sheamus/Mark Henry were solid matches. The Divas Title match was the best match of Kelly Kelly’s career even without the almost depantsing Beth Phoenix almost gave her. Wade Barrett vs. Daniel Bryan showcased two potential break out stars. Then came the two title matches and the train went off the rails.
Anyone who’s read the blog over the last month knows I was not a fan of John Cena and CM Punk having a rematch for the WWE title so soon. After last Monday’s Raw where Triple H named himself special guest referee, I really wasn’t looking forward to the match. Given the verbal slams CM Punk had thrown at Triple H concerning Punk’s opinion of both H and his wife Stephanie, I cringed with anticipation of Triple H either somehow screwing Punk over, or we’d see an unnecessary swerve with Punk and Hunter aligning forces. Neither scenario was one I cared to witness. During the course of the show, Stephanie McMahon had several backstage segments. This raised my spidey-senses even more as she hasn’t been on TV in years.
