PostSubject: Summerslam   Sun Jul 29, 2018 8:54 pm

With WWE supposedly making Summerslam the equivalent of Wrestlemania, the early suggested card is looking pretty darned good so far...

Roman Reigns vs Brock Lesnar again, but I'm wondering if Bobby Lashley may be added in to make it a triple threat.

AJ vs Joe in what should be an awesome match

Miz vs Bryan looks like it's going to happen, largely due to Bryan still not signing a new contract. Shame it's being rushed through now, but I'd love it if Miz won, then headed into a programme with AJ for the title.

Orton (who's been amazing as a heel the last few weeks) vs Jeff vs Nakamura in a triple threat should be fairly tasty too.

Could Mcintyre, Rollins, Ziggler triple threat be on the cards too? Don't see any of them sitting out, and all three are working great together. I'm behind on things but their programme has been one positive thing I've seen. Rollins and Mcintyre's core strength on reversals is crazy, they can bring things to matches that no one else can do right now. If you threw Cesaro in with them, forget about it. It's great to watch

Joe vs AJ is always going to be great.

Randy Orton pulling on Jeff's ear lobes is something you don't see every day in WWE, haven't yet seen how Nakamura is involved other than being champion, but I've enjoyed him low blowing and trying to low blow people for his run to the US title, even when others have not. He is a cheeky cunt about it, which is the Nakamura character. Swag and not caring, but they had to do something to get him there in WWE. His corner choke made no sense in WWE until now, for example. That move is "okay ref, I'll stop doing the bad thing" whilst still choking the opponent. That is Nakamura. Orton has taken over as the real scum bag heel though, doing what Shinsuke does without the playful streak. All business bastard.


Haven't seen what direction SD tag teams are going, but there's enough good performers there for that to be good too.

Both World titles. Both secondary titles. The Women will always be great regardless who matches up, I feel. (Don't know if it's Becky vs Carmella, or Charlotte is added along the way) Rousey vs Bliss, I assume? It looks set to be some show.

And the night before. Ciampa can set the bar. I imagine Joe and Orton will want to be as sadistic against their ultimate babyface opponents. Miz there to be annoying vs his Ultimate babyface too. Thinking about it SD is loaded with matches with proper feuds that fans will easily buy into emotionally.

SD tag has become a tournament to determine the no 1 contenders. New Day won through to the final, to face The Bar, I think.

Orton's heel turn has been executed beautifully, it really has. He's one of those guys whose tenure has kind of got him over rather than him being a natural face or his moves or charisma, but his turn being about his legacy not being realised has been understated and really nicely done. His ear-pull was a thing of beauty - and I'm surprised him vs AJ's not been done at all yet. I'm wondering if that's being saved for possibly Mania season, if Bryan's not around.

I think I remember a one off or possibly two match run with Aj to decide a contender, and it was surprisingly awkward timing in parts, but in other ways it had so much potential.

450 springboard RKO being one of them, or the easier phenomenal RKO.

The one spot I remember was AJ feigned a springboard and dropped back to the apron to get Orton to flinch. I think that was done with the obvious counter ability Orton is perceived to have in mind, so it was a smart bit of psychology. One guy you can't rush in on is Orton, and AJ gets that element. He's supposed to have scouted opponents and is supposed to be seen as one of the best too. It would definitely be a great match up with more time to build something and Orton as a set in stone character, which he hasn't been for ages.

Orton is someone who enjoys wrestling slowly to build reactions too, so it's better for everyone with him heel because he can use people's shorter attention spans as a way to really build annoyance, never letting an AJ type babyface get going at a pace. But it can also help the less experienced faces see the positives in not rushing things just get a quick pop.


Oh and AJ vs Almas a few weeks ago. That was something special. WWE polish, strong style brutality and Zelina Vega reacting to stuff. Those two are so comfortable in their act, whether it's making Sin Cara look great in a loss, or stepping up to Aj's level.

Main points were.

Corbin Balor Piss Break.

As big as WM? Running it close I'd say, without the HHH, Cena, Taker types

4 main titles. Check. Big shout out to Carmella. As good a character right now as Edge was?

IC should be up there with AJ vs Joe for quality. Dean Ambrose is back but looks like a scum bag heel in waiting.


Daniel Bryan vs Miz. Will it be as heated as Gargano vs Ciampa feud? In highlight form it has been, throwing back to the old talking smack stuff. In ring they've kept them away well enough for it to be shockingly good, I'd hope.

MITB stuff and lots of good mid card stuff. A good mix of Entertainment, brutality, technical stuff and big rivalries. Should be good

How good does it look when Ronda Rousey picks people up haha. Never seen anything so simple done so well. She's still random as fuck too blurting out stuff in ring. Counting as she punches haha. Asking Alexa if she's ready to take a bump way too loud lol.

Becky is so over. That reaction was immense. Poor Carmella bumping like a champ though for probably no credit from the internet.

AJ vs Joe was good. It looks like a multi match rivalry, so that as a starting point is way better than the nakamura series. Do they need the Cell? Probably not, but it could further AJ going too far in his family's eyes, or Joe's brutal revenge

Ziggler vs Rollins nice and slow build. Crowd maybe waiting for false finishes and mad shit a bit too much I felt it seemed quiet at first.

Daniel Bryan is staying. That's obvious isn't it? I'd have thought different if he won. Miz can be considered number one contender elect. So they aren't doing Bryan vs AJ at a small show to cash in on that. Maybe Miz can get between AJ vs Joe and sneak away with the title at some point. In a perfect world I'd book Bryan to leave at the 'end of his contract' and stay off tv until the rumble

Roman won.
