WWE SummerSlam 2012
Triple H vs. Brock Lesnar
Shit, what a disappointment. Sure, the match was solid overall, but as a SummerSlam main event, it failed. Why did they even "fight", what's the backstory here? Because, whatever it was, it seemed like Triple H is really pissed on Lesnar because of something. But here's the problem - he failed miserably in trying to recreate Cena's heroic babyface performance from Extreme Rules. Hunter's agression and rage felt forced, it was like he was trying too hard. Lensar was a good monster heel, but he wasn't great. Didn't like the pace either, and they oversold almost everything, which is a big no no if you want to create a chaotic mayhem. It felt awkward. The only thing I liked was Lesnar focusing on Hunter's arm, and Hunter finding the weak spot in Lesnar's gut. And that's about it. Really, Hunter's faux hero performance almost ruined the whole match. Solid overall, but nothing more.
