Book your fantasy Summerslam card using past Summerslam matches
I usually see other posters make this type of thread for Wrestlemania but I thought it would be fun to try this out for Summerslam, with Summerslam 2015 coming up. Especially as I've always thought Summerslam produced more quality cards than Wrestlemania.
Just some rules to make our cards a little realistic:
-No more than 9 matches
-You cannot book a wrestler in more than one match.
-Must have 1 WWE Championship Match, 1 Intercontinental Championship Match, and 1 WWE Tag Team Championship Match. You can book another match for a title that hasn't been mentioned (WCW/World Heavyweight, US, Smackdown Tag Titles, European, Womens, Divas, Hardcore, Cruiserweight, Light Heavyweight etc.).
-If you pick Rock vs. Triple H from Summerslam 1998 as your IC Title match for example, you cannot use Bret vs. Bulldog or any other IC Title match from a past Summerslam on your card also and rebook that for another title or as a non-title match instead. You can't use it, period. Same goes for any other title match.
I'll start off.
1. The 123 Kid vs. Hakushi (1995)
2. Chris Benoit vs. Chris Jericho in a 2 Out Of 3 Falls Match (2000)
3. Edge & Christian (c) vs. The Hardy Boyz vs. The Dudley Boyz in a TLC Match for the WWF Tag Team Championship (2000)
4. The Undertaker vs. Mankind in a Boiler Room Brawl Match (1996)
5. Brock Lesnar vs. CM Punk in a No DQ Match (2013)
6. Booker T (c) vs. The Rock for the WCW Championship (2001)
7. Shawn Michaels vs. Triple H in an Unsanctioned Street Fight Match (2002)
8. Stone Cold Steve Austin (c) vs. Kurt Angle for the WWF Championship (2001)
9. Bret Hart (c) vs. The British Bulldog for the WWF Intercontinental Championship (1992)
your card is very difficult to argue with. Only differences I would make is to take out the Punk/Brock match and put in the original main event at '88 Mega Powers vs Mega Bucks. That would co-headline after Austin/Angle and before Bret/Bulldog. Id also change the tag title match to '91s LOD vs Nasty Boys.
This was a lot harder than I originally thought, but nonetheless, it was fun to do. Here is my dream card.
SummerSlam – Night Of Champions
Divas Championship Title match (2014)
Divas Champion, A J Lee vs. Paige
WWE Light Heavyweight Championship Title and WCW Cruiserweight Championship Title Unification match (2001)
WWE Light Heavyweight Champion, Tajiri vs. WCW Cruiserweight Champion, X-Pac
World (WWE) Tag Team Championship Titles and WCW Tag Team Championship Titles Unification match (2001)
World (WWE) Tag Team Champions, The Jersey Triad (Diamond Dallas Page and WCW United States Champion, Chris Kanyon) vs. WCW Tag Team Champions, The Brothers of Destruction (Undertaker and Kane) (w/ Sara)
Hardcore Championship Title Hardcore match (2001)
Hardcore Champion, Jeff Hardy vs. Rob Van Dam
European Championship Title match (1997)
European Champion, The British Bulldog vs. Ken Shamrock
Intercontinental Championship Title and Women’s Championship Title Intergender match (2008)
Intercontinental Champion, Kofi Kingston and Women’s Champion, Mickie James vs. Glamarella (Santino Marella and Beth Phoenix)
ECW Championship Title Extreme Rules match (2006)
ECW Champion, Big Show vs. Sabu
World Heavyweight Championship Title Elimination Chamber match (2003)
World Heavyweight Champion, Triple H (w/ Ric Flair) vs. Goldberg vs. Chris Jericho vs. Shawn Michaels vs. Randy Orton vs. Kevin Nash
Undisputed WWE Championship Title match (2002)
Undisputed WWE Champion The Rock vs. Brock Lesnar (w/ Paul Heyman)
I don't know if you know!! I don't know if you care!!
I don't care if you know!! I don't care if you care!!
Bret Hart vs Owen Hart (WWF Title Cage Match) (1994)
Ultimate Warrior vs Rick Rude (IC Title Match) (1989)
Shawn Michaels vs Hulk Hogan (2005)
Legion of Doom vs Nasty Boys (WWF Tag Titles) (1991)
Undertaker vs Undertaker (1994)
Mankind vs Triple H (steel cage) (1997)
XPac vs Jeff Jarrett Hair vs Hair (1998)
Sable and Edge vs Marc Mero and Jaqueline (1998)
Chris Benoit vs Chris Jericho (2/3 Falls) (2000)
This was hard to do. Really wanted to fit the HBK vs Triple H, HBK vs Razor Ramon IC Ladder Match, Bret vs Davey Boy IC Match, Triple H vs Rock IC Ladder Match, Hogan vs Earthquake, etc. Ultimately just didn't think the card worked with any of those configurations like this one.
1. Randy Orton vs. Undertaker (2005)
2. Chris Benoit vs. Chris Jericho - 2-out-of-3 Falls Match (2000)
3. Seth Rollins vs. Dean Ambrose - Lumberjack Match (2014)
4. British Bulldog vs. Bret Hart - Intercontinental Championship (1992)
5. The Rock vs. Booker T - WCW Championship (2001)
6. Edge & Christian vs. Dudley Boyz vs. Hardy Boyz - TLC Match (WWF Tag Team Championships) (2000)
7. Brock Lesnar vs. CM Punk - No Disqualification Match (2013)
8. Shawn Michaels vs. Triple H - Unsanctioned Street Fight (2002)
9. Kurt Angle vs. Stone Cold - WWE Championship (2001)
WWE CHAMPIONSHIP: 2013
John Cena vs Daniel Bryan
Cena loses cleanly. That alone warrants it's inclusion on my list.
The Mega Bucks vs The Mega Powers: 1988
It's the first main event in Summerslam history. Dibiase & Andre vs Hogan & Savage. But the main reason I put this on my list is it's an excuse to see Elizabeth in her underwear one more time.
INTERCONTINENTAL TITLE: 1991
Bret Hitman Hart vs Mr.Perfect
The match that launched Bret Hart to the next level. One of the best finishes to any wrestling match I've ever seen. Better than Bret/Davey a year later.
TAG TEAM TITLES: TLC: 2000
Edge & Christian vs Hardy Boys vs Dudley Boys
Test vs Shane McMahon: 2000
If I could book a wrestler more than once this match probably wouldn't make my list, but since we can't I'll put it in. The image of Shane diving off the titan tron through a table is burned into my brain.
SIX MAN TAG TEAM MATCH: 1989
The Rockers & Tito Santana vs Rick Martel & The Rougeaus
Best six man tag team match I've ever seen.
Rey Mysterio vs Kurt Angle: 2002
2 OUT OF 3 FALLS: 2000
Chris Jericho vs Chris Benoit
WWF WOMENS TITLE: 1994
Alundra Blayze vs Bull Nakano
Probably the best womens match of the decade
Ultimate Warrior's surprise win over The Honkytonk Man in 1998 and Demolition vs The Hart Foundation in a 2 out of 3 falls match in 1990 would be the two matches I would have included if I could have two IC title matches and 2 Bret Hart matches. Heck, you could probably do an entire Summerslam card featuring only Bret Hart matches, he had that many classics at this event.
