    I remember when, at the start of a PPV, the build up video would hook you in, showing you weeks of battles between the people in the matches and making you look forward to the climax. Now all we get is a Raw/ Smackdown style recap which is due to the rushed way in which these ppvs and matches are put together.

    In the case of Summerslam, its almost as if they put all the focus and effor into HHH vs Brock Lesnar then all of a sudden somebody realised they hadnt made any other matches- so ended up with a ‘thatll do’ situation.

    Maybe it’s me dreaming but I’d love Rev Slick to come out of managerial retirement and manage wrestler’s who have poor mic skills. He would actually do it if WWE pays him plenty of Yard Bird.

    I like the Primetime Playas….but they don’t seem to talk all that well…..am I the only one who thinks they will fall flat into the abyss that is Superstars in no time without a mouthpiece??

    All but the divas title. Its a damn shame

  • King

    santino has made this title a fucking joke & i like santino but come on already…i remember when this belt had title holders like Benoit,Guerrero,Matt Hardy,Booker T,Finlay,Dolph Ziggler,Zack Ryder…santino has definitely made it a joke now…take the damn title off him already…id rather Ryder get it back

    Remember when HOF’s used to hold the IC and US belt? Those were the good days. Now we have below average stars winning the belts.

  • Little Jimmy

    The US title has no worth what so ever, Why? A pseudo Italian Puppet wielding man midget is holding it and only seem’s to defend it on these daft Pre Show matches before the Main PPV. Antonio Cesaro is good but I think there’s only one man who can make the title credible again and that is The “Intellectual Savior” Damien Sandow. This guy is a reminder of what wrestling used to be.

  • JohnCena33

    Summerslam is a thrown together card. The way it looks the writers kids are picking action figures from a box and those picked are in a match.

    they should just change the US title to the YT title
