    Both World title matches were great considering they were rematches.

    What impressed me about the Summer Slam match was that it wasn’t a carbon copy of the MitB match, as a lot of these feud matches tend to be. Cena and Punk should be proud, though not nearly as proud as Christian and Orton. Those guys let it all in the ring.

    I agree with al, they need to keep the title on someone for a while and stop passing it around. All that does is just weaken the meaning of the title.

    I also agree that the finish was kind of a mess. They should have cleaned that up, or something.

    Yeah well way to kill the momentum they had WWE. Total garbage finish.

    i thought SSlam was quite chaotic. But it will lead to good storylines for the future. And i think they should stop passing the WWE/ and World title around. 4 wwe champions in 1 month? Christian and Orton has been passing the title around also.

    The match was solid very back and forth the way a PPV match should always be only downside was Cole kept saying “What if Triple H makes a mistake?” If you saw it think about it it just made the moment feel like “aww Cole did say it could happen”

    have to agree there match was pretty good but not as good as mitb
