WWE DVD Review: SummerSlam 2011
By Phil Allely
SummerSlam has traditionally been one of the WWE’s biggest events of the year. SummerSlam usually has a nice mix of top class bouts and will feature some matches that have evolved from the company’s big show WrestleMania. SummerSlam 2011 was a very reasonable event and one that for the most part ticked all of the relevant boxes when it comes to PPV shows.
The card saw a returning CM Punk take on John Cena to crown an undisputed WWE Champion in an eventful and exciting scrap. Triple H as guest referee is an interesting dynamic here too.
We also got to see Christian defend his World Heavyweight Championship against his best opponent and perennial thorn in his side Randy Orton. This is a match that makes this DVD well worth purchasing alone.
Another well received bout is Ireland’s own Sheamus battling ‘Worlds Strongest Man’ Mark Henry.
Elsewhere we have a nice six man match with Rey Mysterio, John Morrison and Kofi Kingston versus The Miz, R-Truth and Alberto Del Rio. There are also reasonably well paced efforts with Kelly Kelly taking on Beth Phoenix (Divas Championship) and Daniel Bryan versus Wade Barrett. Both of which are equally entertaining for differing reasons.
SummerSlam 2011 is a very good release by the WWE/Silver Vision and one that will please fans with ease, match wise they do range from average to very good. On the extras front however we simply get a fun interview with Alberto Del Rio.
SummerSlam 2011 is available now from www.silvervision.co.uk and all good retailers.
