SummerSlam™

Event Date: August 15, 2004

Written by "Rockin" Robin Drodge on  August 15, 2004

The event took place at the sold out Air Canada Centre in Toronto, Ontario

This pay-per-view was a co-production of RAW and Smackdown.

ü      Match number one - Smackdown.  Six-man tag match between the team of the Dudleys Vs the team of the WWE tag team champions Billy Kidman, Paul London and Rey Mysterio.  The 3-D won the match for the Dudleys

ü      Match number two - RAW.  Till Death Do Us Part.   Kane Vs Matt Hardy.  The winner would have the opportunity to marry Lita.  Kane hit the choke slam to pick up the pin-fall victory.

ü      Match number three - Smackdown.  John Cena Vs Booker T.  This match was the first in a best of five series to determine the United States Champion.  Cena hit his finisher - a Death Valley driver or what he calls the FU.

ü      Match number four - RAW™.  A triple threat match for the Intercontinental Championship.  Edge Vs Batista Vs Chris Jericho.  Edge hit the spear on Jericho to pick up the pin-fall victory to retain the Intercontinental Championship.

ü      Match number five - Smackdown. Kurt Angle Vs Eddie Guerrero.  Kurt got the tap out victory making Eddie tap out to the ankle lock.

ü      Match number six - RAW.  Triple H Vs Eugene.  Triple H picked up the pin-fall victory in this match.

ü      Match number seven - Smackdown.  WWE Championship John Bradshaw Layfield Vs the Undertaker.  JBL lost the match by DQ so the Undertaker won the match but not the WWE Championship.

ü      Match number eight - RAW™..  World Heavyweight Championship Chris Benoit Vs Randy Orton.  Orton got out of the crippler crossface and hit his finisher the RKO to pick up the pin-fall victory to win the match and the championship.  This makes Orton the youngest superstar in WWE history to be the World Heavyweight Champion.  He is 24 years old and no one has held the title at this young age.

This was a very good pay-per-view.  The fans made some bizarre decisions on who they cheered for and who they booed for in certain matches.  The results were unbelievable, as the fan favourites instead of being cheered received the opposite reaction, in that they got booed.  For example, Edge performed in his hometown, instead of him getting cheered for by the fans, he got booed.  It was rather bizarre. The ACC was sold out with 17,640 fans in attendance.
