Re: WWE SummerSlam Discussion Thread #JOINTHEPARTY
Finally caught up on this show. I know some people are calling it the best WWE show of the year but very few of the matches interested me. I thought the finish to the Ricochet/Styles match was awesome, I just wish Styles wasn't working that slower heel style as I always feel like there is a much better match for these two if Styles took the limiters off. I will say I appreciate Ricochet getting a singles push of sorts and while it requires a lot of retconning in your brain, the OC are awesome (if not the flag for WWE's arrogance).
The Charlotte/Trish match was more Charlotte self indulgence, the match was way too long and felt pretty boring as a result. I guess at least Trish didn't put on an absolute carcrash like some other returning legends as they had her on the left foot for most of the match (which also begs the question as to why it went on so long, given she didn't win).
I also thought that while I was glad this show wasn't 24 hours long, it was weird they managed to get both Stratus and Goldberg onto the card but somehow about fifty percent of the modern wrestlers they have that they could be pushing as stars weren't on here.
Like everyone else has said, this new Bray Wyatt if used properly is one of the best things WWE have had in years but it was weird that Finn Balor was being used in this feud and the Demon seems to have been erased from continuity. It felt like this wrote itself but instead Balor was presented as some kind of sacrificial angel for The Fiend's darkness which just seems weird booking. I guess we need to do more brain retconning of all of Balor's past before this like we did with the OC.
I also talking about wrestling on my Twitter if you want to follow me or whatever...
