WWE SummerSlam 1999 - An Out Of Body Experience

SUMMERSLAM 1999

It was a magical time for wrestling back then, wrestling was at an all time high during those years and the WWF was going head to head with WCW. This pay-per-view in particular happened during the Austin vs Vince beef, and is also the event that saw Jesse the Body Ventura referee the main event in the state he was in office to.

1.D'LO BROWN VS JEFF JARRETT-the opening contest for the evening was a two titles on the line match, the Intercontinental & European Championships. D'Lo was the defending champ and actually had the mental edge during the match as he was accompanied to the ring by Jeff's Manager Debra after Jarrett kicked her out of his corner. The match its self was pretty good match as each wrestler went after the other relentlessly, but it was D'Lo's boy Mark Henry that was the determining factor. It turned out to be a plot from the beginning between Jeff, Debra, and Henry to screw over D'Lo for the belts. Over all it was a great opening bout.4.5/5

2.TAG TEAM TURMOIL:EDGE & CHRISTIAN VS THE HARDY BOYZ VS MIDEON & VISCERA VS DROZ & ALBERT VS THE ACOLYTES VS THE HOOLYS-this match as to be the best of the night, which says a lot for the WWF's tag team division back then. E & C started this match out against the Hardy's aka at the time "The New Brood" as Gangrel was their mentor. The opening section of the match was definitely a prelude to the historic matches these two teams would be involved in together later in their careers. It was quick paced and featured a lot of action until E & C got the pin after Christian dropped an elbow from the top rope on to Mat. After that Mideon and Viscera came in to face E & C. But a spear from Edge sent the two bigger wrestlers to the back, and Droz and Albert were the next to be defeated by Edge and Christian. But their winning streak would come to a violent end when the Acolytes rushed down the isle and sent the two Canadians to the back. Next up The Hollys came down only to meet defeat in part to their own constant fighting amongst themselves. So the Acolytes won the match earning a title shot for the tag titles the next night on Raw.5/5

Next up was an unscheduled appearance from DX member Road Dogg Jesse James as he came down to the ring to vent about not being in the Hardcore title match, when all of a sudden Y2J Chris Jericho appeared and the two got into a war of the words till Jericho left.

3.BIG BOSS MAN VS AL SNOW-after the thing with Road Dogg and Y2J, Road Dogg followed the action between Boss Man and AL snow every where including inside a restaurant with a mic adding some additional commentary with J.R. and King. The match its self was an ok match for the Hardcore Title, not the greatest hardcore match ever. It ended when Road Dogg hit Boss Man in the back with his own nightstick. Afterwards Snow went running off to find his dog Pepper only to get into an altercation with Stevie Richards and the Blue Meanie.4/5

4.IVORY VS TORI- the next match up was for the Woman's title as Ivory defended against Tori, and there really wasn't a lot that happened in this match. Probably the weakest match of the night.3/5

5.THE LION'S DEN WEAPON'S MATCH:KEN SHAMROCK VS STEVE BLACKMAN-this match in particular was one of the ones I was waiting for the most, simply because I was always a fan of Shamrock's ever since I watched the UFC he was in, and also because I always liked Blackman as well. The match its self did not live up to the hype as much as I thought it would, not to say that the match wasn't enjoyable, but it wasn't what it could have been. After an ok fight between the two Shamrock ends up winning the match after canning Blackman in the head twice.4/5

6."LOVE HER OR LEAVE HER" GREENWICH STREET FIGHT:SHANE MCMAHON VS TEST-definitely one of the better matches on the card, and also had the most memorable moment of the entire night when Shane came off the top rope down onto Test on top of a table [Spanish announce table]. This was one of the first times people were able to see the athletic ability of Shane and of course anybody who watches wrestling knows that Shane went on to deliver some pretty memorable moments in side the ring. The match ended after Pat Patterson and Jerry Brisco attacked the Mean Street Posse and evened the odds for test. After a pump handle slam test went to the top and deliver an elbow of his own to get the win over Shane.5/5

7.KANE & X-PAC VS BIG SHOW & THE UNDERTAKER-This match up was for the WWF Tag Team Championship as defending tag champs Kane and X-Pac went up against the Big Show and Undertaker. This was a surprisingly good match that saw Taker & Show take the titles from the champs in a highly entertaining match. The down fall of the champs was all on X-Pac as he tagged himself in and was greeted by a Big Show choke slam, and a Tombstone Pile driver from Taker.4.5/5

8.KISS MY MATCH:THE ROCK VS BILLY GUNN- this was another match I was looking forward to as Billy Gunn was always a fav of mine ever since he crushed Honkey Tonk Man's head with a guitar and joined Road Dogg way back 1997. also I was always a fan of the Rock once he dropped the good guy look and joined the Nation of Domination back during that same year. So to say the least I was pretty excited about this match, and just like I thought this match did not disappoint. This was a bout between two very gifted athletes, and two very entertaining guys. This great match ended when Rock shoved Billy into the woman's rear end, and then hit him with a Rock Bottom and People's Elbow for the win.4.5/5

9.TRIPLE THREAT MATCH:STONE COLD STEVE AUSTIN VS TRIPLE H VS MANKIND, JESSE "THE BODY" VENTURA AS SPECIAL REFEREE-this was another really hyped match due to Ventura's involvement in the match, I have to say I respect Ventura for going back to his roots even though the media made him look dumb for it. The match its self was a pretty good match between the three, but the best part of the match was when Ventura refused to count the three for Triple H because he used a chair. But after all of the back to back finishers from all three Mankind wound up winning the WWF championship after hitting Hunter with a double arm ddt. Over all it was an ok match.4/5

over all this was pretty good event, and featured some really good matches. I recommend this event to all who are lucky enough to find it.

GREAT EVENT
