Summerslam loved hated

Pre-show: RVD vs Cesaro.  Now, I like Cesaro, I don't understand why he's not seriously in the title hunt?  Unfortunately, RVD got the win.

Match #1- Miz vs Dolph Ziggler for the Intercontinental title.  Ziggler got the win and the title.  Not bad match, roughly ten minutes.

Match #2- women's match. didn't pay attention.

Match #3- Swagger vs Rusev. This was a flag match, winner has his flag raised.  Rusev got the win by making Swagger pass out cold.

Match#4-Seth Rollins vs Dean Ambrose in a lumberjack match. Rollins cheated to win by hitting Ambrose with the money in the bank case. Damn it! Okay, so this match was a bit short for my taste, and there wasn't as much mat wrestling as I was expecting. There was however, a really great facial expression by Ambrose at one point when he hit Rollins with the curb-stomp; Rollins's own move. It was as if Ambrose was about to cry. 
The lumberjacks were in on the action, kicking them, kicking each other, until Kane got in the ring hitting Ambrose, where upon Golddust got into Kane's face and that was the distraction Rollins needed to get the briefcase. 
This was the main reason I got the ppv, so for me this was a bit of a let down. I was really hoping this match would run a lot longer with some more technical moves in the middle of the ring, but it was all about running around the building. 
The new hoodie Ambrose scored with his initials was cute, not great but new.

Match#5-Jericho vs Bray Wyatt.  Wyatt got the win.

Match#6- Stephine vs Brie.  Stephanie won with a cheat help by both Triple H and Nikki. Normally, I don't watch women's matches, but...I didn't have anything else to do for that few minutes.

Match#7-Orton vs Roman Reigns.  Reigns got the win out of nowhere after almost 20 minutes of brutal near falls. The length of this match was good, it was non stop within the ring, each guy pulling out their trademark moves over and over, always shocked they didn't nail it right away. The hardedge samoan drop off the turnbuckle was like a flat out backwards belly flop, which looked like it did the damage to both men. (was that David Arquette at ringside? Loved him as Bennie in the original Buffy the Vampire Slayer movie)

Main Event- Cena vs Brock.  Brock won and got the Heavyweight titles. 

Well, I guess it's a safe bet to say that Seth Rollins will be hanging on to his money in the bank case for a few months, if you know he's got half a brain cause I just don't think cashing it in anytime soon with Brock would be smart. Yes Mr. Rollins, just keep that number one contenders contract a few months, you're a favourite and I'd like to see you live.

Till later

SummerSlam 2014 prethoughts

Summerslam is this I have any thoughts?

Well, as of right now, we've got Cena vs Brock, Swagger vs Rusev, Jericho vs Bray Wyatt, Miz vs Dolph, Reigns vs Orton, and Rollins vs Ambrose.

Well...Cena vs Brock. I don't care for either of them, so...let's have a surprise run in to ruin it all, like say...I haven't got a clue. Cena is going to win by a hair.

Swagger vs Rusev. Ugh! Why are you even putting us through this?  Rusev will get the win just because I think they don't know what else to do with the character so they're just going to have him and Swagger go back and forth for the next six months.

Jericho vs Bray. This is another one of those storylines that makes me raise an eyebrow...if I could physically do so but I'm not that talented...Bray Wyatt is going to win this just to keep the creep factor up.

Miz vs Dolph Ziggler. Anyone else feel like this storyline is just a stop gap bus wait while Barrett heals? Miz will cheat his way to winning and keeping Barrett's title.

Reigns vs Orton.  Roman Reigns all the way. And I'm not just saying that cause he's one of my favourites. As I look at the magick mirror and the crystal ball...okay I don't actually have a crystal ball, cause those things aren't cheap...I say Reigns will win because it's time to put him in the main title hunt.

Rollins vs Ambrose.  Dean Ambrose will do something fabulous in the middle of the ring, dead center, maybe with some barbed-wire and a submissions move or ten, to win. This will make Seth Rollins angry enough that he's going to have something to prove and decide to cash in his empty pop sticky popcorn salted briefcase...any Twizzlers in that thing?...

So, I see Summerslam ending with Cena winning, but just barely alive, and Seth Rollins angrier then a killer tomato in a blender cashing in his case to get the title, which of course is when Roman Reigns will be added sincerely to the title hunt. Which means the next ppv in September will be Reigns vs Rollins for the title.  That's what the giant ouija tells me today.

See you after the weekend.
