A Review of Summer Slam, August 17, 2014
Having watched Summer Slam yesterday evening, I would give it an overall score of 4 out of 5 stars.
The Kickoff Show was very good and featured a match between Cesaro and RVD. This was a well fought match and ended in somewhat of an upset by RVD. I am very happy to see RVD come out the winner. He has not won too many matches since his return to the WWE. This was a big win for him which should start him on the road to picking up more victories.
The first match of the official start of Summer Slam featured The Miz vs Dolph Ziggler. Like RVD, Dolph has played the role of the journeyman wrestler. Good enough for an early spot on the wrestling card but supposedly lacking the skill set to be a top card draw. Personally, I can’t stand the Miz. I was glad to see Dolph Ziggler win The Intercontinental Championship because he has worked hard and deserves it. I would be happy to watch any wrestler beat The Miz with the possible exception of Bo Dallas.
In the women’s championship match, Paige defeated A. J. Lee to win the title back. This title has gone back and forth between these two divas a couple of times now. I don’t know how long the WWE can keep having the same two competitors in a similar type match. Even the best rivalries get old after a while. On a side note, Paige does not skip as well as A.J. Lee.
I was disappointed by the end result in the the Jack Swagger vs Rusev match. Over the last month Jack Swagger has gone way up in my estimation. Although it’s true that Swagger doesn’t win very often he gives an all- out performance.
The lumberjack match between Dean Ambrose and Seth Rollins should have been scheduled as the evening’s main event. This was indeed the most exciting lumberjack match that I have ever seen. I just wish that Kane could be kept in the dressing room so that he wouldn’t interfere in any more matches. I know. Fat chance of that happening any time soon. See you soon for Part Two of this article.
