Re: WWE SummerSlam Discussion Thread #JOINTHEPARTY

We are getting closer and WWE have not done anything to convince me to subscribe for SummerSlam just like they did barely nothing for building Wrestlemania and I skipped Mania for the first time due to lack of interest, it looks like SummerSlam is going the same way.

What annoys me is this company never learn. They have the same throw everything at the wall and hope it sticks 2 weeks before formula for these supposed big 4 shows now.
It is BS. They haven't a clue how to build anything anymore and they still are bone lazy dominating the card with mostly things we have seen over and over already.

Out of the 11 matches announced so far 8 of them are rematches or rehashed feuds.
The card is likely to be another half a day marathon which I struggle with now especially with the current product.

We have

Brock Lesnar vs Seth Rollins = rehashed repeat feud.

Kofi Kingston vs Randy Orton = revisited feud from years ago.

Becky Lynch vs Natalya = Has happened many times over the years on Smackdown.

Bayley vs Ember Moon = Bingo a fresh match.

Kevin Owens vs Shane McMahon = more Shane despite them knowing he is killing fan support and we have seen this feud before but in reverse face heel roles.

Trish Stratus vs Charlotte Flair = The only big match feel that is fresh and offers a dream match so fair play.

Finn Balor vs Bray Wyatt = it happened at SummerSlam 2 years back , the only difference now is we have the heel in a mask.

AJ Styles vs Ricochet = It would be fine if we had not already seen it several times already.

Aleister Black vs Sami Zayn = hey a hat trick on a fresh match, give yourselves a pat on the back WWE.

The Miz vs Dolph Ziggler = This seriously must be part 596 surely. There is a crowd chant that goes "fight forever" in which these two have taken literally.

Then we expect the following additions to the half day marathon event...

Roman Reigns challenging whoever tried to harm him?? Is Samoa Joe too obvious?? Knowing WWE probably not.

Shinsuke Nakamura vs Ali part 3. Once again this would have been more interesting if they had not traded wins beforehand. It would have been ever more interesting if it had been a 5 way elimination match with Nakamura, Ali, Crews, Murphy and Andrade.

The Iiconics vs Kabuki Warriors vs Mandy Rose & Sonya Deville which has a build consisted of backstage bickering segments. These titles are dead.

A cruiserweight title match with Drew Gulak (who is fantastic) vs his next challenger, my bet is Humberto Carillo.

Possibly something involving either RAW or Smackdown Tag Team titles??

Possibly something with Daniel Bryan??

If all those additions are made then we are looking at another 6-7 hour marathon event which is ridiculous.
If the event had been built up instead of focusing on love match with Rollins and Lynch vs the ratings killers Corbin and Evans then maybe the event would have some substance going into it.
Everything is going to be rushed in within 2 weeks yet again.

No doubt several matches will be bumped to the dreaded unnecessary pre show, my money is on...

Cruiserweight title match because WWE clearly hates 205 live.

Nakamura vs Ali

Women's Tag Team championship match.

Maybe Ziggler vs Miz also although there is rumour that that match may be changed yet.

WWE keep telling us that they are making changes but yet still stubbornly persist with the same dreadful pay per view formula that is clearly NOT working. With the exception of a couple of matches I have no interest in subscribing yet again and unless something very interesting is added next week then it will be a no buy from me.

Not one match on that card will make me tune in.

Re: WWE SummerSlam Discussion Thread #JOINTHEPARTY

Is this future of the big 3 ppv's (survivor series has been so poor of late I dont acknowledge it as a big 4 ppv), underwhelming cards with little originality to the matches, as with wrestlemania this summerslam card looks unspectacular and it is starting to feel like a regular thing of late over The past 3 or 4 years, it's like they throw so much quantity of wrestling out there with 50/50 booking that they cant create any fresh of hype feuds anymore.

Re: WWE SummerSlam Discussion Thread #JOINTHEPARTY

I'm actually excited for a lot of the card personally. I think all three women's matches will be solid, i'm a huge Trish Stratus fan so i'm excited to see her have another match. I'm hoping Seth beats Brock decisively and i'm also interested in Kofi/Orton because the build has me shook because Orton is so legit. I'm also looking forward to seeing both AJ & Finn's matches too obviously.

I'm intrigued to see who challenges Drew Gulak next and if a Women's Tag Team Championship actually makes the card.

Re: WWE SummerSlam Discussion Thread #JOINTHEPARTY

So hearing rumors and knowing the announced matches, there is like 17 matches that COULD end up being on the show:

1. Shane vs. Owens
2. AJ vs. Ricochet
3. Wyatt vs. Balor
4. Alexander vs. McIntyre
5. The OC vs. The New Day
6. Mysterio vs. Andrade
7. Zayn vs. Black
8. Alexa & Nikki vs. Fire & Desire vs. Kabuki Warriors vs. IIconics
9. Becky vs. Nattie
10. Ali vs. Nakamura
11. Bryan vs. Roman
12. Ziggler vs. Goldberg
13. Kofi vs. Orton
14. Bayley vs. Ember
15. Charlotte vs. Trish
16. Lorcan vs. Gulak
17. Rollins vs. Lesnar

Now they'll cut a couple of those matches but Damn this is going to be a bloated show. A lot of good to it probably, but it will be a long night.

Re: WWE SummerSlam Discussion Thread #JOINTHEPARTY

I'm curious to see if Bray wrestles differently as The Fiend but nothing else on this card interests me.
