WWE SummerSlam 2022 (Review)

Paul Levesque’s body of work in NXT suggested his creative style was more pro wrestling than sports entertainment. That couldn’t have been further from the truth, as he struck the perfect balance on Saturday to produce a SummerSlam for the ages.

Roman Reigns closing out the show #AndStill champion could signify the shroud of Vince McMahon looming over the new era of WWE. One could be forgiven for conjuring such an idea. After all, wrestling has embedded the art of “the worfans’ minds of fans everywhere.

Bianca Belair’s victory over Becky Lynch, followed by Bayley’s reemergence along with Io Shirai and Dakota Kai’s introduction to the main roster, set a pronounced pace and tone to open the show.

It was a statement that things are going to be different.

The Ultimate WrestleMania Card

Some of the year’s biggest matches will occur this weekend at WrestleMania 38. It’s a fun time to reminisce on past Mania matches and think about those that never occurred. The Ultimate Show on the WWE Network booked the Ultimate WrestleMania Card.

The rules are you can pick any wrestler from any era who competed at a WrestleMania. Also, you can only use a wrestler once. So, I put my promoter’s cap on and created what I believe would be the Ultimate WrestleMania.

Since WrestleMania has been a two-night event for the last three years, I’m going to treat this card the same. Two nights, six matches each, and headlined by a blockbuster main event.
