So I was pretty skeptical of Summerslam this year. I was watching it all evening last night and I was extremely surprised by the ppv. It turned out really good after all! I enjoyed pretty much every match but the best matches I’ve seen last night were: Finn Balor aka The Demon King vs. Bray Wyatt, Natalya vs. Naomi and the main event which was the Fatal 4 Way for the Universal Champ. All three of those matches actually had some pretty exciting wrestling. You see, Vince? That’s what we all want to see!!! Good wrestling! All three of those matches had that pretty much.
Finn Balor is becoming one of my favorite new performers right now and so is Braun Strowman. That Strowman guy is a fuckin’ bad ass for sure. While I do think it’s annoying as fuck that Vince McMahon has a huge big man fetish, I think Braun Strowman is one of the best big man performers we’ve had in a while. I think that Strowman guy is gonna be something special. Most big man wrestlers are pretty boring as hell in the ring but that Strowman guy, wow…. he keeps things entertaining as hell in the ring. Braun Strowman, we’re looking at a future icon here… this guy could be bigger than the Rock, Stone Cold and Hogan.
I was skeptical of the main event which was the “Fatal 4 Way” for the Universal Champ: Brock Lesnar (current champ) vs. Braun Strowman vs. Roman Reigns vs. Samoa Joe. I was expecting that match to be boring as hell but it turned out to be pretty thrilling and exciting. Lesnar won that match, of course and he retained the champ. There’s already a lot of calls from wrestling fans that they all want Strowman the chance to get the title and I agree. I do agree Strowman deserves a chance… right now it’s not the time ’cause I feel it’s too early. They still need to build Strowman up some more. He’s already becoming a popular baby face but he needs more. I was real surprised of that match, though and I want to watch it again. Is hardcore wrestling back? It seems so!
Good job. WWE! Yeah, I’m a pretty big fan of wrestling. Have been for my whole life and don’t feel ashamed for it. It was a good ppv last night. I did watch NXT Takeover ppv as well the night before “Summerslam” and that was real good too. I just love to watch wrestling. Yeah, I know it’s fake… I’m not stupid but I just watch it ’cause I respect what those guys do. They work hard to entertain people. Give their blood, sweat and tears so that’s why I pretty much support the wrestling business. I’m about to make another post on why the wrestling business should be respected ’cause I know they get a lot of criticism over the years.
