Unless it is a hometown hero and then they come out second. There was even a pause after Lynch's music hit. Natalya low key thought the crowd was gonna be buzzing. It was a huge fail. She even tried to pander to her own country by coming out with the Canadian flag. I never liked Natalya and she always panders. And is god awfully boring.

And with all those cameras you still don't know who it was?!!! My guess is it was a stunt driver doing this one thing for the World Wrestling Entertainment, and he probally talked to Reigns after the filming, so I reckon the stunt driver and Reigns are cool with one another. And why is the World Wrestling Entertainment trying to kill a man that was almost killed for REAL by way of cancer?
Huh? Are you new to wrestling? Oh boy, there is so much to tell you...

Randy Orton's gimmick is that he is full of venom and as a snake, he can strike with his RKO at anytime.

Can't believe Rollins actually beat Lesnar again. Yikes.

I am just saying the fact that SummerSlam is being called the BIGGEST party of the Summer and it has almost been like a mini WrestleMania for some years. So why did it feel like it was another version of either Raw and/or Smackdown?!!

Re: WWE SummerSlam Discussion Thread #JOINTHEPARTY

Is that the first time a PPV WWE Championship match ended in a double-countout? I'm racking my brain and I can't come up with another one.

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.

Re: WWE SummerSlam Discussion Thread #JOINTHEPARTY

Oh and I also forgot to say that if they hadn't used injuries to build the match, Rollins v Lesnar would have been awesome. It is just so stupid how WWE doesn't give a shit about its own continuity.

I thought it was a good show. The WWE shows seem to be somewhat better as of late so hope that continues.
