WWE SummerSlam 2009 DVD

ss

Once again I am given the task of watching a new WWE event. As a fan of the 80’s WWF, I find it very difficult to enjoy the current state of wrestling. Oh wait… Shawn Michaels is still wrestling? Really? Next your going to tell me that they are still doing the D-Generation X storyline… oh that’s sad

SummerSlam 2009 features the return of D-Generation X of Shawn Michaels and Triple-H. The big events are Jeff Hardy against CM Punk for the World Heavyweight Championship and John Cena versus Randy Orton for the WWE Championship. I still don’t understand the differences between the belts.

I enjoyed the opening match of Rey Mysterio and Dolph Ziggler for the intercontinental belt.  It was a great match that I wasn’t sure how it would end. I also was impressed with the tag team of Ted Dibiase and Cody Rhodes. It’s a shame that this had to involve the very tired gimmick of D-Generation X.

Final Thoughts
I hated the D-Generation X back in the 90’s. I guess the WWE is looking to regain that popularity they had back then. What’s next the NWO? I did enjoy some of the wrestling matches. However, I think the WWE should think about all of the championship belts they have. In my day there were three, heavyweight, intercontinental, and tag-team. It makes the championship matches more memorable.
