Sheamus vs Randy Orton (Summerslam 2010) - ***1/4
This was way better than their Royal Rumble match. The pace was good and they had the crowd in the match the whole time. The near falls were good and Orton's comeback was good as well. The crowd just ate it up. I did not really like the ending though. A DQ is fine by me but it should have been done better. Maybe if Sheamus had hit the ref with the chair or Orton than that would have been better in my opinion. The RKO on the announce table was pretty sweet aswell.
Team WWE vs Nexus (Summerslam 2010) - ***1/2
I enjoyed the match a lot. I wanted to put it at ***3/4 but Cena's total no selling during the last few minutes just killed it for me. Nexus looked pretty strong for a bunch of rookies and it was great to see Danielson back in the WWE. Everything he did looked great. the eliminations were good and I liked how they played on the fact that team WWE was not on the same page with a few of its members. Also, Cole on the commentary was great. I just wanted Danielson to come back down and kick his ass again.
I have Mysterio vs. Kane at **3/4. It was a better match than I thought, but the casket should have been used more often and Kane usually bores me in the ring. Mysterio was not at his apex either. It was a very average match between two wrestlers who needed to put on a better match.
I have Orton vs. Sheamus at ***3/4, which I admit is probably high, but the match was quite enjoyable, especially the last five minutes. Sheamus is improving in the ring. The finish was complete garbage. They have had two PPV matches, both ended in DQ. It is pointless, and it destroys the point of a PPV. I am enjoying Orton going nuts on Sheamus.
The main event earns a **** from me. Cena might have not sold as well as you would have liked, but he was kept out of the match for the most part, so he should not have been selling too much. Danielson was great and the booking was very well done in this match. This did not save the PPV, but it was enough to make it somewhat good.
