"SummerSlam" - RAW, SmackDown & ECW Co-production

Location: TD Banknorth Garden, Boston, Massachusetts

by "Rockin" Robin Drodge

Event Date:  August 20, 2006

Match Number One - (SmackDown).   Rey Mysterio vs. Chavo Guerrero.  This match was all right.  The ending saw Vickie Guerrero come down to ringside and attempt to stop the match between Rey and Chavo, however this did not happen.  As Rey climbed to the top rope, Vickie by accident, knocked Rey off; which led to Chavo hitting a Brain Buster on Rey, which was then followed-up with a Frog Splash from off the top rope to pick up the pin-fall victory.

Match Number Two - (ECW).  ECW World Championship:  ECW World Champion, The Big Show vs. Sabu.  This match was all right.  The ending saw The Big Show hit a Choke Slam on Sabu onto a table that was in the ring to pick up the pin-fall victory to retain his Championship.

Match Number Three - (RAW).  Legend Killer vs. Legend, Randy Orton vs. Hulk Hogan.  This match was all right.  The ending saw Randy Orton hit the RKO on Hulk Hogan to pick up the pin-fall victory.  However, before the three count happened, Hogan’s foot was on the rope, therefore the match continued.  Then Hogan hulked up and hit Randy Orton with the Big Boot, which was followed-up with the leg drop to pick up the pin-fall victory.

Match Number Four - (RAW).  "I Quit" Match:  Ric Flair vs. Mick Foley.  The only way that the match could end was when someone said the words "I Quit".  This match was all right.  The ending saw Ric Flair use a barb wire baseball bat in which both Superstars fell to the outside of the ring where Foley hit his head on a trash can.  The trainer came out and said that Foley could not continue the match and the match was stopped.  However, Flair would not stand for this.  Flair said unless Foley said "I Quit" the match was not over.  So the match continued.  Moments later, Melina came down to the ring and threw in the towel for Foley.  However, Flair would not accept this and said Melina could not Quit for Foley, therefore the match continued.  Then while Flair had the barb wire baseball bat and was going to hit Foley with it, Melina stood in the way.  When it appeared that Flair was going to use the baseball bat on Melina, Foley said the words "I Quit".  The match ended with Ric Flair being the winner.

Match Number Five - (SmackDown).  World Heavyweight Championship.  World Heavyweight Champion King Booker (with Queen Sharmell in his corner) vs. Batista.  This match was all right.  The ending saw Sharmell enter the ring to prevent Batista from hitting the Batista Bomb on Booker.  As a result, King Booker was disqualified.  The winner of the match as a result of a disqualification is Batista, however King Booker is still the World Heavyweight Champion because a Championship can’t change hands on a disqualification.

Match Number Six - (RAW).  D-Generation X (Shawn Michaels and Triple H) vs. Vince and Shane McMahon.  Before the match started, The Spirit Squad came down to the ring, once they were taken out, Mr. Kennedy, William Regal and the United States Champion Finlay came to the ring to help out the McMahons.  However, it did not work. 

Then The Big Show came to the ring and took out Triple H when he choke slammed Triple H onto the ECW announce table.  Then the match started.  It was all right. 

The ending saw Shane McMahon try to hit the van-terminator, as he was attempting this, Shawn Michaels hit him with the sweet chin music.  After this happened, Shawn hit Vince McMahon with the sweet chin music, followed up with the pedigree from Triple H, which led to the pin-fall victory for D-Generation X.

Match Number Seven - (RAW).  Main Event - WWE Championship Match:  WWE Champion, Edge) with the new WWE Women’s Champion, Lita, in his corner) vs. John Cena.  There was a special stipulation to this match, if Edge got disqualified, he would lose the WWE Championship.  This match was all right.  The ending saw Lita hand Edge a pair of brass knuckles, however if Edge used them he would have gotten disqualified.   So while having the brass knuckles in his hand, John Cena tried to go for the FU, however Lita ran into the ring and was on top of Edge.  It appeared Cena would deliver the FU to both Edge and Lita, however this did not happen.  While Lita was no longer in place for the FU, the referee was out of position and did not see Edge use the brass knuckles on Cena.  As a result, Edge pinned Cena to retain his Championship.


Some additional comments regarding SummerSlam. 

ü      There was no announcement of how many fans were in attendance.  However, on TV the WWE were saying that the Pay-Per-View was a sell out.  I don't understand why it wasn't announced how many fans were in attendance for the Pay-Per-View, if indeed it was a sell out.

ü      Currently there is a rumor circulating that Edge and John Cena will wrestle again for the WWE Championship in a TLC match at the upcoming Unforgiven Pay-Per-View that is scheduled to take place on September 17, 2006 in Toronto, Ontario, Canada.  I am hoping that Edge will retain the Championship and that it will finally end the feud between Edge and Cena.

ü      I thought the "I Quit" match between Ric Flair and Mick Foley was all right, however to me the way the match ended was not that great.  I really don’t know if this is the end of this feud between Flair and Foley or what will be next for these two.
