Great Summerslam
11 January 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Match 1: Orlando Jordan (c) vs Chris Benoit for the United States Championship - This was unexpected. It was nice to see Benoit regain the title, but it made it seem as though all those months that Orlando had the title were just a simple fluke. Benoit makes Orlando tap in 25 seconds. New record, new Champion.

Match 2: Edge vs Matt Hardy - Excellent stuff. You could see that these two truly hated each other. Matt Hardy was back and out for blood against Edge, who stole his girlfriend Lita. Even though Hardy had a tremendous comeback he still took the backseat to Edge, when the referee stopped the match and named Edge as the winner.

Match 3: Eddie Guerrero vs Rey Mysterio in a Ladder match for Custody of Dominick - The storyline was a little nuts even for WWE standards, but the Ladder match was an all around battle to the finish. The whole reality base between both families kept it a little more interesting, but the match was a fantastic encounter from these two old friends once again. In the end Rey does keep the custody of his son and lays the whole ordeal with him and Eddie to rest.

Match 4: Kurt Angle vs Eugene - The whole Eugene gimmick really died down several months after he arrived in WWE. Nick Dinsmore on his own is a great wrestler, but when they portray him as Eugene it kills his career opportunities. This is basically a Kurt Angle squash match. After losing his Gold Medals to Eugene, Angle is back for the Medals and out to hurt Eugene. Angle takes the win and dominates doing it.

Match 5: Randy Orton vs Undertaker - Entertaining battle once again from both of these former World Champions. The score going into this match was 1-0, with Undertaker scoring the win in the first encounter at Wrestlemania earlier that year. That all was changed with a little help from Randy's father Cowboy Bob Orton Jr. With some assistance from his dad Randy Orton was able to beat the Undertaker at Summerslam.

Match 6: John Cena (c) vs Chris Jericho for the WWE Champinship - The crowd was a little dead for this one. The match was alright from both of these two. Cena pretty much walked in that day knowing he would retain once more. Jericho put up a valiant effort against John Cena because the title was at stake. The whole rivalry between these two never really builded two a huge climax. The whole thing ends with Cena nailing an FU on Jericho to retain his title.

Match 7: Batista (c) vs JBL in a No Holds Barred match for the World Heavyweight Championship - A pretty decent SmackDown main event for the title. JBL does a lot better as a hardcore wrestler than as a regular wrestler. Batista dominates the whole match with his overpowering champion persona. In the end he Batista Bombs JBL onto the steel steps to retain. A short match with a pretty good ending.

Match 8: Shawn Michaels vs Hulk Hogan - The most anticipated match of the evening. An incredible encounter from the Legend and the Icon. The first ever meeting between these two was one of the greatest matches of the night. Michaels beat the hell out of Hogan the entire match, he even started bleeding. Hogan then did his signature Hulking up motion and nailed the big boot and leg drop. This lead en route to Hulk Hogan sealing the deal and defeating Shawn Michaels in the main event of Summerslam. Fantastic main event.
