DOPLPH ZIGGLER VS CHRIS JERICHO-the first match of the night was a highly competitive one with each man trying to outdo the other. Jericho had his midsection tapped up thanks to an attack from Dolph earlier in the week so that added to the drama. On top of that Y2J had not won a PPV match since his return. Dolph was all over Jericho's ribs throughout the match to exploit the injury while Chris did everything he could to make up for the injury. Great back and forth action leads to a win from Y2J using the Lion Tamer [not the walls, that is only a Boston crab to be honest].
2.DANIEL BRYAN VS KANE-the second match of the night was between two guys who turned out to have some of the best chemistry between wrestlers in a long while. Before they became an unlikely tag team they were going at each other's throats. Kane was all over Bryan here using more high impact and brawling moves. Bryan on the other hand tried to outwrestle the larger man and chop him down with kicks. Good match between the two with Bryan pulling out his first singles victory over Kane I believe.
3.[I-C TITLE]THE MIZ VS REY MYSTERIO-going into this match I was expecting a really good match since it was these two in it. As it turned out I was right as both put on a good show for all the fans. Speaking of the fans they were really into this one, especially for Rey. Fast paced match with Miz really taking it to Rey for the most part. Rey still looked good and almost wins it at one point, the fans really thought it was over. But in the end Miz retains the I-C title.
4.[WORLD TITLE]SHEAMUS VS ALBERTO DEL RIO-much better match than I thought it was going to be. More of a brawl at first with the fight going everywhere before heading back into the ring. I remember going for Del Rio in this match and really thinking he was going to pull it off. The finish for this match really upset people but I thought it was kinda funny that the face did that to the heel. Sheamus ends up pinning and getting the win over Del Rio despite Del Rio having his foot on the ropes.
5.[TAG TEAM TITLES]R-TRUTH & KOFI KINGSTON VS THE PRIME TIME PLAYERS-ok before I say anything else I want to say that this is a good match. All four guys deliver and I was never bored but it's just good. There was a time in the WWE when a tag match stole the show at SummerSlam. While they do not do that here there are some highlight reel moments such as Kofi's jump to the outside, he gets up there. In the end Truth & Kofi keep the belts.
6.[WWE TITLE TRIPLE THREAT MATCH]CM PUNK VS BIG SHOW VS JOHN CENA-I have read many reviews and it seems like most people weren't into this match all that much. Me personally I thought it was fun. All three guys accomplished what they were meant to. Punk kept his title and continued the no respect thing. Cena looked good and is still the poster boy of the WWE. Then of course there was the Big Show and he looked like an unstoppable monster for most of the match. The controversy with this match is that both CM Punk and Cena had Show in holds so when he tapped there was no winner. So AJ came out and restarted the match with Punk minutes later keeping his belt.
7.[NO DQ MATCH]TRIPLE H VS BROCK LESNAR-this match really had me hyped up because it legitimately had a big fight feel to it. Much like the big main events from back in the day I had high hopes for this match. Now I could tell from the build up off this match that Lesnar was going to play off his time in MMA. Now even as a huge MMA fan and such I really thought that Brock coming in like that was a bit of a mistake. Now don't get me wrong the kimura [oh how this really hurts, very much makes you tap or you run the risk of snap] being used by Brock is fine because of said background. The thing is they are really turning him into that kind of guy in the ring, I felt he should have been a little more like his previous WWE days. Any way this match while good did not live up to the hype in my opinion. It had a great build and I did like the ending so over all it was good
Now this may not have been the best SummSlam ever and maybe even been close to average but over all I thought it was good.

Monday Night Raw before SummerSlam.
1.CM PUNK VS THE BIG SHOW-now is it just me or did this match seem a little more fun to watch than the three way match at the PPV later. Show looked strong here as usual but Punk holds his own. The match is going well until Daniel Bryan interferes and causes a DQ which of course brings out Cena. This leads AJ to make a tag match for late that night.
Piper's Pit with Y2J This segment is just a set up for the next match.
2.[THREE WAY MATCH]CHRIS JERICHO VS DOLPH ZIGGLER VS THE MIZ-another good match from Raw and why wouldn't it be with these three involved. Y2J basically had to battle both guys for most of the match as he was the only face. But Miz and Dolph would go at it as well trying to best each other. The action is great in this match and the ending with Ziggler getting the win was great.
3.BIG SHOW & DANIEL BRYAN VS CM PUNK & JOHN CENA-I have to say going back and watching this Raw on here was great. I really enjoyed this match and how it really put over the storyline with Punk and Cena here. The match itself was really good and even had time to develop on Raw [rare]. Any way the ending here is fun with Cena and Punk trying to outdo the other. This of course leads to Cena getting the win over Bryan.
Brock Lesnar VS Triple H contract signing. About your typical contract signing minus all the fighting that usually comes with one of these things.
Brock Lesnar attacks HBK
We see HBK getting cut off by Paul Heyman with his car which leads to Brock getting Shawn and attacking him. When they finally get to the ring Brock breaks Shawn's arm then flees when Triple H tries to get at him. Now I know that running is the typical heel thing to do but why would a monster like Brock run, still don't get that.
4.DANIEL BRYAN VS RANDY ORTON-this match was on the Smackdown before the PPV. Any way like on most Smackdown's this was a really good match between these two. Both guys end up looking good here, loved that Bryan was on his way to winning here. But Kane costs him the match and even comes out after the mind game he played.
