SPOTLIGHTED PODCAST ALERT (YOUR ARTICLE BEGINS A FEW INCHES DOWN)...
WWE Summerslam Live Report
August 21, 2016
Report by Mike Omansky, PWTorch correspondent
– The return date (after Raw) is Wednesday night, December 28 during the Holiday Tour. A pre-sale began after Summerslam with the pre-sale code HOLIDAYBK.
– The booing over the Universal Title belt cut into the live crowd’s match involvement for the first 10 minutes of Finn Balor vs. Seth Rollins. The belt was booed twice and then assorted chants broke out.
– The biggest live crowd reactions were for A.J. Styles and Finn Balor.
– The crowd was dead for most of Miz-Crews and Ambrose-Ziggler. They were most into Cena Styles. The crowd stayed hot throughout the match and popped for the finish.
Overall Reax: 7.0 Score. Best Match: Styles-Cena. Worst Match: Six-woman tag; Honorable Mention: Ambrose vs. Ziggler. Cena-Styles did it again, and with the right finish. Their chemistry and timing is just amazing each time.
Brock Lesnar is again re-confirmed as a seemingly unstoppable monster – Randy Orton took quite a beating… Balor-Rollins was really successful in the last four minutes, which was excellent.
Ambrose-Ziggler just didn’t work – far more excitement for Daniel Bryan
promoting the match, than the match itself, which landed like a thud.
