1.[I-C TITLE]REY MYSTERIO VS DOLPH ZIGGLER-excellent opening match right here, very well done on both parts. This match has everything an opener should have with basic and classic wrestling as well has the high risk stuff. You also get some great high impact moves as well leading to some very close near falls. Rey is always great but Dolph really impressed here with his performance. I also love the ending here with Rey reversing Ziggler and nailing the huricarana, he keeps the title. Great opener for this Summerslam and would even call it a classic.
2.MVP VS JACK SWAGGER-this match ended up being a little short but good, far from best match on the card. The action is high impact and brawl based which is fine for this short match. Over all a good match but not either ones best, M.V.P. hits the Playmaker and gets the win.
3.[TAG TITLE]CHRIS JERICHO & BIG SHOW VS CRYME TYME-do you remember when tag matches would steal the show back in the day. It has been a while since the WWE has had a great tag division. This match does not suck if that is what you are thinking but it is far from stealing the show. Cryme Tyme never really made a huge impact like they could have and Chris and Show were actually the best tag team at the time. This was a good match that got better as it went and had a classic ending. Well at least the ending felt that way to me, Show and Y2J keep the belts after a huge knockout blow.
4.KANE VS GREAT KHALI-now a lot of people hate on this match and I can see why but what did you expect. This was a battle of two monsters and one of which does not move to quickly. So of course the match is a bit slow with brawler like moves but Kane pulls out the win quick enough.
5.DX VS LEGACY-the match I was waiting for when this event happened as my boy HBK was returning. Of course you all know by now that DX entered on the tank and such for the DX army. The match its self is great and really helped put Legacy over even in their loosing effort. There is a lot of great wrestling going on in this match as well as some brawling. DX of course takes the win as the crowd was crazy for them the whole night.
6.[ECW TITLE]CHRISTIAN VS WILLIAM REGAL-this has got to be the quickest match ever. The bell rings and then Christian wins but of course he gets jumped afterwards by Regal's boys. Quick and sweet victory for the peeps, well that is at least until Christian takes that beat down.
7.[WWE TITLE]RANDY ORTON VS JOHN CENA-this match right here is one of those ones that most people either love or hate. I personally really like this match and all the multiple finishes and how they did it. To me this was a very creative way to give these two a new match. The action starts slow and builds from there especially once the finishes start. I will say that Orton keeps the belt but watch the ways he tries to keep it.
8.[WORLD TITLE TLC MATCH]JEFF HARDY VS CM PUNK-now I have never been a Jeff Hardy fan even when he first debuted. On the other side I have always been a fan of CM Punk even in his Indy days. With that said even though I don't like Jeff I will not deny his talent. Going into this I knew it would be a good match mainly because I like Punk so much. The action is great here but with few high spots involving all the weapons, which is great because they had a great showing with out all that stuff. Jeff of course goes for his Swanton off of the ladder which was a big moment. Still for me the best was the ending when Punk won the title, I loved it. Then of course the return of the Dead man made the place go crazy.
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. There is also a Diva Battle Royal in the special features.

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. I just thought that this match should have been on raw. But that was a impressive win for mvp over the dork people call jack swagger. match rating:2/5 … more
I basically am just a normal person obbsessed with Mixed Martial Arts, pro wrestling, movies of all kinds, music of all kinds, books of all kinds, and of course foods of all kinds. Just trying to keep … more
