This was a good Summerslam event that had some really good matches attached to it. Of course there were some matches that were a bit lacking but over all a good event. I say pick it up especially if you are a collector. If not it still had some great matches on it you may enjoy.

This summerslam was average, was one of the better ppvs of 2009, and had some good matches.                      M.V.P vs. Jack Swagger    These two had a okay or just average match. realy, they didn't build this rivalry up to be ppv material.
