The WWE SummerSlam 2022 Response – TJR Wrestling

Welcome to the WWE SummerSlam Response, the place I provide my tackle this yr’s large occasion from Nissan Stadium in Nashville.

As at all times, you possibly can take a look at John’s full in-depth report right here.

We kick issues off with a Nashville-themed video package deal for the night time’s occasions. Good to see the WWE spared no expense for the SummerSlam stage. This leads us to our opening bout.

The Uncooked Girls’s Championship is up for grabs in our first match with Bianca Belair defending in opposition to Becky Lynch. This was an amazing alternative for the opener and it was an intense backwards and forwards motion packed bout. The match may have gone both means a number of occasions. The group was tremendous into it that was a extremely good signal. After Belair kicked out of the Manhandle Slam, Belair hit Lynch with a Spanish Fly off the second rope and adopted up with an impactful KOD to retain her title. After the match was over, Lynch wished to shake palms. Belair was hesitant however finally did and that made for a pleasant “passing the torch” kinda second. Lynch left to permit Belair to have a good time within the ring. Bayley’s music hit and she or he’s again. Belair regarded like she was prepared to complete the unfinished enterprise together with her. Bayley shouldn’t be alone and Dakota Kai returns together with Io Shirai to again up Bayley. The trio will get up in Belair’s face able to combat. Lynch determined it was the right time to show face and backed up Belair. The trio bail to depart the duo standing tall. I believe the Uncooked Girls’s Division simply heated up. Now that’s cool.

We later discover out that Shirai bought Vince’d into IYO SKY (sure, all caps), leading to a collective groan from the WWE Universe. At the least she’s on the primary roster now with Kai. I believe the brand new blood goes to be an amazing factor going ahead.

Our subsequent bout has the Miz squaring off in opposition to Logan Paul. Maryse carries Miz’s balls to the ring. I assume Ciampa is out right here to assist get Paul over as a face. The match was surprisingly actually good. Paul’s bought expertise past being a douche. I nonetheless can’t consider that this entire feud is over Miz’s ball dimension although. Couldn’t we consider one thing higher? Ciampa jumped in to assist get Paul a face response and to additionally (hopefully) begin a feud with AJ Types, who ran right down to chase him off. Paul hit a decent-looking phenomenal forearm for 2 earlier than Maryse interjected. The Miz/Maryse collision was averted however Paul dropped Miz with a Cranium Crushing Finale to choose up the win. Paul regarded nice on the market and proved he may cling on his personal. He’s about pretty much as good as Unhealthy Bunny was. If Paul retains placing the work in, he might win the followers over.

The Most Male Fashions had been hawking Pure Life water. Disgrace Maxxine didn’t partake within the promotion.

Bobby Lashley defends the USA title in opposition to Idea subsequent. Idea jumped Lashley with the MITB briefcase to begin the match to make it appear like he has an opportunity right here. As soon as Lashley recovered, he laid waste to Idea and disposed of him rapidly, as he ought to have. The neatest factor Idea did was instantly faucet out to the Harm Lock.

Up subsequent, The Mysterios tackle The Judgment Day in a No-DQ match. We begin the match with a brawl and the Mysterios get the higher hand. The groups need to tag out and in, regardless of it being no DQ, as a result of WWE. The match was fairly good and Rhea Ripley spent most of her time on the skin twiddling her thumbs. When Ripley lastly bought concerned, the Brood’s music hit and The Brood’s Edge makes his technique to the ring to take out the Judgment Day to permit the Mysterios to choose up the win. It was nice to see Edge again. I ponder who the Judgement Day will recruit subsequent to make it 3-on-3 and can the Mysterios get somebody to counter Ripley?

Pat McAfee takes on Comfortable Corbin subsequent. There’s the Indy Wrestler Choir to sing “Bum Ass Corbin” to Corbin throughout his entrance. The match was actually good as nicely, given McAfee’s restricted in-ring time. McAfee can go within the ring. McAfee picked up the win with a powerful ending transfer. That ought to be his common finisher. McAfee celebrated after the match with some buddies.

Newly transplanted Nashville native, Drew McIntyre, comes out for a promo about taking up the winner of the Final Man Standing match at Conflict on the Fortress. I count on that McIntyre will get the championship victory in entrance of followers he has not but gotten. That ought to be a extremely nice second.

Jeff Jarrett comes out for his particular visitor referee duties for our subsequent match, The Usos defending the WWE Undisputed Tag Crew Championship in opposition to the Avenue Earnings. The Avenue Earnings have a fairly neat entrance with the Tennessee Titan’s cheerleaders. The match was not their greatest outing, however was nonetheless fairly good. Jarrett labored nicely because the referee in there. He appeared to name the match proper down the center and enforced the principles of a tag staff match. I actually consider that Montez Ford might be a singles champion by the top of this yr and a sleeper choose for the Royal Rumble. Jey kicked out of the Ford frog splash and Ford argued with Jarrett in regards to the rely earlier than tagging out. The Usos doubled up on Dawkins to choose up the win. Within the ultimate couple of minutes, they misplaced the group in order that damage a bit bit. It was nonetheless a extremely good match however I count on the Avenue Earnings to separate up within the Draft.

Riddle rushed out to chop a promo on Rollins regardless of not being medically cleared. Rollins got here down and a small combat ensued with Rollins ending it on a stomp to Riddle. It kinda felt like an audible to get the group again earlier than the following match.

Liv Morgan defends her Smackdown Girls’s Championship in opposition to Ronda Rousey subsequent. Rousey dominated Morgan earlier than they got here up with the distinctive end of Morgan pinning Rousey whereas within the armbar, however mistimed her faucet out to make it a bit extra apparent what the end was presupposed to be. Rousey bought mad for doing a Shayna Baszler and takes out the referee with an arm bar. I think that is beginning the Rousey heel flip. Let’s simply hope that Triple H doesn’t pull out the 2006 Rey Mysterio World Heavyweight Title run for Morgan. It would damage her in the long term.

Most important occasion time has Roman Reigns defending the Undisputed WWE Common Championship in opposition to Brock Lesnar in a Final Man Standing Match. Lesnar got here to the ring driving a tractor. Farmer Brock is superior. The match itself was superior. It was a hard-hitting backwards and forwards. With Lesnar unable to complete Reigns off, he took the tractor and flipped the ring over! Reigns goes down and the Usos present as much as combat Lesnar. Lesnar wipes out the Usos and they’re unable to reply the ten rely. Lesnar F5’s Heyman by way of the announce desk and he dies like when the ECW paychecks bounce. Reigns spears Lesnar they usually each go down. Idea decides to run down together with his briefcase to drag a Seth Rollins. Whereas Idea explains to the ref how a triple menace final man standing match would work, Lesnar is up and F5’s Idea onto the briefcase and he stays down for a ten rely. The Usos finally assist Reigns bury Lesnar below the ringside wreckage to lastly win the match. Reigns now has a date with McIntyre at Conflict on the Fortress.



Let’s check out tonight’s highs and lows.

The Highs

That was the best final man standing match ever. The visible of Lesnar taking out the ring with the tractor was probably the most superb factor I’ve ever seen in my 30+ years as a fan. Kudos to WWE for developing with that. Plus, it match the match/storyline completely too.

Logan Paul shocked me tonight. I had low expectations going into the match and he hit it out of the park. Implausible job.

Total, I actually loved SummerSlam. Should you missed it, it’s nicely price a watch. I’d give it an 8 out of 10.

The Lows

I wasn’t a fan of the Morgan/Rousey end. I’m nonetheless praying she doesn’t get the 2006 Mysterio remedy going ahead. With Hunter in cost as an alternative of Vince, I believe she’ll be okay.


A fast notice on me. I’m doing higher and ought to be turning out some columns actual quickly.

You’ll find me on Fb or Twitter (@ciscowebwiz76) with any suggestions or dialogue.

That’s all I’ve bought, till subsequent time.
