SUMMERSLAM 2008

1.JEFF HARDY VS M.V.P.-this was a great opening match with both guys demonstrating their actual wrestling skills. I loved all the reversals here and the back and forth action. I have never really been a fan of Jeff but I will never deny that he is talented. Add in M.V.P. and it makes for one good match. Really liked that M.V.P. got the win here.

2.[WINNER TAKES ALL MATCH]MICKIE JAMES & KOFI KINGSTON VS BETH PHOENIX & SANTINO MARELLA-in this match the winners would win the I-C and Women's belts. I remember when this was happening live I was a little torn since I like all four of them. Any way this is an excellent match for the comedic value. Also the action is actually good as well with Kofi showing off his athleticism. Beth and Santino are great together and Mickie is great as well. Glad that Beth and Santino won the belts, these two were perfect together.

Here we get the retirement announcement from Shawn Michaels and his wife Rebecca that would see Chris Jericho come out and punch her. This of course caused HBK to come back and continue one of the best feuds he had. But before all that HBK gave what seemed like a very real speech that even had me believing it .

3.[ECW TITLE]MARK HENRY VS MATT HARDY-I was looking forward to this match and had high hopes for it going in. how wrong was I as Hardy looks great at the beginning only to have Tony Atlas cost him the match. Hardy wins by DQ.

4.[WORLD TITLE]CM PUNK VS JBL-now I am a fan of both of these guys and this match is a good one, but it is a typical JBL match. What do I mean by that, well it is mostly him then a comeback. Now other reviews have stated this before me so that is all I will say. Other than that this is a good match with JBL showcasing his strength and Punk coming back to keep the title and prove JBL wrong.

5.[WWE TITLE]TRIPLE H VS GREAT KHALI-now we all know what we are getting when Khali is wrestling. We are going to get him looking like a monster for most of the match only to have a comeback beat him. Well that is what you got here. Not an overly great match but better than a lot of other matches that Khali has been in. in the end Triple H hits the pedigree and keeps the belt. Oh and like they say on commentary TV does not do Khali justice, you have to see him in person. He is huge.

6.JOHN CENA VS BATISTA-I liked the build to this match and how they made it play out going into this match. These were the two "guys" for WWE at one time so this was a big deal as far as storylines go. Now I really did not expect much from this match going in but I am happy to say that I was wrong. Lots of high spots and back and forth action make this one of the best on the card. The crowd really got into this one as it went on and the counters were excellent. In the end two Batista bombs had Cena on the losing end of things.

7.[HELL IN A CELL]UNDERTAKER VS EDGE-excellent match like these two always put on with tons of high spots. The thing is this match also had great psychology in it which added to the brutal fight. I liked that Edge was unafraid to go in there with Taker and of course Taker just took it to him. Edge came hard in this match but in the end he lost and was sent to hell by way of choke slam.

Special feature match
8.[ECW TITLE]MARK HENRY VS MATT HARDY-this was the match that took place on 8/19/08 and was much better than the PPV match. Henry of course uses his strength to dominate but Hardy came really close to winning this one. Henry still walks away with the title.

Other features include the SummerFest thing and an interview with HBK and his wife.

This was a good event that I ended up enjoying more going back and re-watching now. There are some good matches here and even a great match or two.
