Re: SummerSlam 2012
Here's i felt about it, my mini breakdown/rating.
Jericho vs Ziggler: 3/5. Overall very solid, but nothing really stuck out. A good opener though.
Bryan vs Kane: 2.5/5. Felt pretty flat in comparison to the previous match. On its own it left nothing to remember it by but it wasn't awful, and thats a plus since these two don't seem to have any chemistry.
Mysterio vs Miz: 3/5. Good match, but felt too short. Nice variety of moves, relatively back and forth. Miz is very underrated in the ring.
Del Rio vs Sheamus: 3/5. It was phsysical, it was a brawl, and even though the angle behind the match left them with no hype, they delivered a match that made it seem like the rivalry was real. If any guy on the roster should have Superman-like comebacks, its Sheamus. He looks tough as nails, and for a power based wrestler, he has a very nice variety of moves. Odd finish, but it wasn't predictable at all. Good match.
Prime Time Playas vs Kofi/Truth: 2/5. Pretty average match. Pretty much just a filler to cool the crowd. Wasn't awful though despite Kofi's generic-ness. He's a good wrestler, just no personality. PTP has a lot of potential as a team and hopefully they don't get the Cryme Tyme treatment of being the best, yet rewarded with nothing.
Big Show vs Cena vs Punk: 3/5. Better than i anticipated. Stayed pretty active throughout. Nothing to remember the match for, but it wasn't boring so that's a plus.
Triple H vs Brock Lesnar: 3/5. Decent brawl, almost a squash in favor of Brock though. Nothing to remember about it really. Odd, abrupt ending as well.
Overall PPV rating: 3/5. No match was great, but most were at least good. Best match probably goes to Jericho/Ziggler. Other matches may have been more physical or had more story behind it, but this one had the most enjoyment behind it. Miz/Mysterio was close but it was just too short.
