Summerslam 2017, or How to get through a 6 hour show with a little help from your friends at PWO

Recommended Posts

 

So......I stepped out for a smoke right when Orton-Rusev was about to start figuring it would be a bullshit nothing match......like 5 minutes later I come back inside and Bliss and Naomi are wrestling!!! WTF happened. I'm guessing a quick RKO finish.

 

That's exactly what happened to me, except in my case I took my dogs out into the yard to pee. We were only out there for a couple of minutes, and when I came back inside I couldn't figure out what the hell happened, since Orton had been making his entrance when I went outside. I had to rewind my PVR to see the "match."

 

 

Exact same as me.

 

I meant Bliss and The Boss btw......this show is breaking my brain

Well that's it...Balor and Wyatt are 1-1 against each other. We absolutely have to have a third match to decide this rivalry. It will be like this generation's Flair/Steamboat trilogy.

Pretty good way to get Finn over, honestly. That he can do stuff as the demon that he can't normally do, especially if they play up that there's a cost to it or something.

This is a good way to make some changes to Bray's character if they wanted to. Have him go on a spiritual journey or something after he couldn't stand up to the Demon.

This Ambrose/Rollins video package is pretty good and compelling. And I don't even really like either guy all that much.

 

Please, wrestling gods, save this show.

 

By the way, when I said wrestling gods I didn't mean JBL.

These PPVs would be a lot less bloated without the commercials and endless recap clips (save that shit for the DVDs/Blu-rays, guys!)

To do this right, they need the old Shield entrance from the crowd, in the flak gear

 

Maybe they'll reunite with Roman too? Only way I'm going to care about these guys again, I think. They're all former World Champions now.

Michael Cole's incessant statistic and date quoting is annoying as hell.

They've been obsessed with those statistics for a couple of years now.

 

 

Knowing how many times the Tag Titles have changed hands at Summerslam really enhances my enjoyment of this match.

I don't remember Rollins and Ambrose actually being fun together. I mean, I know they were, but I don't remember any details. Their babyface tandem stuff has been fun here though. Dorky, but fun.

Of all the things to complain about on this show, we're concerned with Cole reading off stats that mean nothing?

 

How is that different than baseball? "He's batting .345 on Sunday afternoons against left handers when the wind blows out toward left field and the forecast calls for rain."

It's my own fault for still trying to watch a show this long live. In this day & age, I should really know better. If I just wait until tomorrow, I can fast-forward through all the stuff that doesn't interest me. There's so much filler it's just exhausting. There's so many people that I don't care about getting TV time, that it just feels like a waste of my time.

 

Like who wanted to see Big Show Vs. Cass with Enzo in a shark tank? Who was clamoring for that? Did we really need another Natalya title run? What was the point of that Rusev Vs. Orton match? It's just all nonsense.
