Post Show: Summerslam 2008

In what was forseen as a weak card for a Summerslam event, WWE managed to pull off quite an exciting show, all things considered. My predictions sat at 57% (4 of 7), lower than expected. In a surprise move, they decided to put the two non-championship matches on top as the main events. Highlighted in bold are the winners of the matches:

MVP Vs. Jeff Hardy:
Shelton Benjamin ran in for some interference. Jeff missed the swanton on MVP, and MVP capitalized with the yakuza kick. This was surprising, but I was happy as MVP is my favourite wrestler in the WWE brand. I hope they push him now into a main event program with Triple H.

Santino & Beth Phoenix
Vs. Kofi Kingston (c) & Mickie James (c)
:
Greatness! Santino and Beth as champions will have limitless comedic opportunities. I can't wait.

Mark Henry (c) Vs. Matt Hardy
through DQ:
Match ended after 2 minutes after Tony Atlas interfered. DQ finishes suck on PPV, but at least they did it to the match that would have brought the card down. They teased a Hardy tag team reunion when Jeff ran in to make the save.

CM Punk (c) Vs. JBL
:
Though I placed my bets on JBL, I'm glad CM Punk won. JBL now looks like a big fat geek, after already being stomped on during Raw this past Monday. They seriously have to build CM Punk as a legit upper carder. He still looks like a mid-card chump holding the belt.

Triple H (c)
Vs. Great Khali
:
In a match that was better than expected.

John Cena Vs. Batista
:
Fun match. The frustration in the face of Batista during the match furthers his decent into heeldom. Can't wait. I think the guy is boring as a face. Having big hulking monsters as heels are usually more effective.

Edge Vs. Undertaker (Hell in a Cell)
:
Crazy match, but easily match of the night. It was madness. After the match, Undertaker left the ring, only to turn back and chokeslam Edge off of a ladder. Edge fell through the canvas and fire and brimstone was seen erupting from the gaping hole. Cheesy but fun.

That's it for now, lata geeks.
