So I’m back to talk about the weekend that just commenced in which WWE aired new programming on the WWE Network for three nights in a row. First, they started off on Friday night with a show which in all honesty was recorded a couple weeks ago from their shows in Norwich, England and it featured talents from the UK Championship Tournament they held back in January along with some cruiserweights from 205 Live. Next up on Saturday night, NXT presented the latest in their TakeOver series of specials, NXT TakeOver: Chicago, which aired live from the Allstate Arena in Rosemont, Illinois. And finally, to cap off the weekend, the Smackdown crew presented the WWE Backlash Pay Per View.
So I first wanted to do a write up about last night’s Summer Slam Pay Per View. First off, if you haven’t seen this show…go out and order the WWE Network already! This really was a phenomenal show! From top to bottom, I was thoroughly happy with everything they gave us.
So WWE had their annual summer pay per view last night in LA. I watched the show from my local Buffalo Wild Wings in Rockaway. I did have to work last night, so it was after 8:30 by the time I got to BWW. Unfortunately, I missed the Bray Wyatt vs. Kane Inferno Match…from what I read, it sounded like it went prettymuch how I expected it to. Rowan & Harper finally made their way into the ring once they figured a way around the flames. And apparently they dragged a beaten Kane off to apparently be brainwashed to join the Wyatt Family.
I’m not gonna give a match by match recap or even thoughts on every match, rather just comment on what I really want to comment on. So with that in mind…
