Summerslam 2003

This was a very good PPV, but in my opinion the Elimination Chamber Match was a let down.

Match 1 sees fan favourites, The Dudley Boyz taking on La Resistance. This was a good match, because the heat on La Resistance was overwhelming and when they won with help from Robert Conway, the fans could not believe the outcome.

Next match saw The Undertaker taking on A-Train. I must be honest I really liked this match up, but Taker shouldn't have been feuding with him. The cat fight between Sable and Stephanie McMahon at the end was passable! Next up Eddie Guerrero puts his United States Title on the line in a fatal four way match against Chris Benoit, Rhyno and Tajiri in a fantastic battle.

Then Shane McMahon battles Eric Bischoff. This wasn't going to be a Chris Benoit style match, but it does prove to be entertaining enough ie Jonathon Coaches heel turn and 'Stone Cold' Steve Austin helping Shane.

Then Kurt Angle puts his WWE Title on the line against big bully Brock Lesnar in a very good match. Angle wins via the ankle lock.

Next up RVD takes it to former partner and friend Kane in a very good no hold barred match. Particular highlights included RVD jumping from one end of the turnbuckle to the other on Kane with a chair, even though he missed, and Kane Tombstoning RVD on the steel steps. Kane wins.

Then Triple H puts his World Heavyweight Championship on the line in an elimination Chamber match which also consisted of Randy Orton, Goldberg, Kevin Nash, Chris Jericho and Shawn Michaels. This was crap. Honestly this was bad, it was all Goldberg and Triple H didn't do enough. OK yeah, so the man had a groin injury but the fans pay to see him wrestling but they do not pay to see him hiding in the Chamber with help from HHH's ass kissing boy Ric Flair! Nash was lazy and Jericho bled for no apparent reason! Give me the ECM from Survivor Series 2002 PPV instead anyday!

Overall Grade - B
