Smile THE BIGGEST PARTY OF THE SUMMER (#30)

It's here! Strap yourselves in for (at least!) SIX hours of WWE Summerslam. We got a a STACKED (really just long) card of 13 matches.



I'll be there! Sitting row 1 of the upper deck. Factor in 3-4 hours of pregame drinking, and then 5 hours of Barclays drinking, and I'll be lucky if i'm awake/alive by the time the main event rolls around.

Predictions!!:

1. the Powa of Tozawa over Neville
2. New Day over Usos
3. Hardyz over Miztourage
4. Natalya over Naomi
5. Sasha over Bliss
6. AJ over KO
7. Cass over Show
8. Ruski over Randy
9. Balor over Wyatt
10. Corbin over Cena
11. Shesaro over Shield (upset special!!)
12. Nak over Jinder via DQ---MAHARAJ retains
13. REIGNING, DEFENDING, UNDISPUTED CHAMPION......

Strong race between Balor/Wyatt and Show/Cass for least interesting match on the card.

Anyway, I'll have this on, though I'm sure my attention will lapse for long periods of time and I'll only really watch like four matches.

Have fun at the event OP.

Re: THE BIGGEST PARTY OF THE SUMMER (#30)

1) who at WWE headquarters thinks a 6 hour show is a good idea?

2) how do you put together this many matches and have SO MANY look boring.

Sounds like the right strategy. Will peek into this thread beforehand to see if I missed anything important.

I'm having people over to watch this who don't watch GoT. What's my play? Can I fake a network outage from 9-10pm?

Re: THE BIGGEST PARTY OF THE SUMMER (#30)

had no idea orton vs rusev and balor vs wyatt was a thing.

yikes this card looks awful outside of the main event.

as i was scrolling through i said "it better not be KO vs AJ vs the US title" and lo and behold... how many times have these guys fought each other in the last 6 months? wtf is going on

Looking for the leaked episode is too much effort. Not the same experience as on the big screen TV.

Game of thrones is this decade's Lost-- at the time it aired, everyone claimed it was so great, but by the time it was done and gone, it turns out it was boring and lame and history is gonna note that.

Re: THE BIGGEST PARTY OF THE SUMMER (#30)

I was thinking of staying up and watching this until I seen the full card.

How do you waste Cena in two nothing matches on your two biggest PPVs of the year? He's one of like three or four guys that actually makes a main event feel like a big deal.

Re: THE BIGGEST PARTY OF THE SUMMER (#30)

I'm 0/2, but very happy with both results!

Lol at putting the Hardyz on first in front of literally zero crowd. They are so over still.

The Barclays doors didn't open until after 5pm

I wonder how many people in Brooklyn know Carmela isn't actually from Staten Island.
