SummerSlam has been labeled as the WWE's No. 2 pay-per-view behind WrestleMania for quite some time, and although I'm not sure it lived up to that lofty billing on Sunday night, there is absolutely no question that there were some high-level matches that were well worth the price.
A battle between Brock Lesnar and Triple H, as well as the WWE Championship triple threat match involving CM Punk, John Cena and Big Show headlined the card, and both of those contests were highly entertaining. Some of the other bouts left something to be desired, but at least SummerSlam ended with a bang.
It certainly wasn't anywhere near the best SummerSlam in its 25-year history, but there were some moments that reminded us why it is one of the WWE's marquee events. There are some things that could have been done to make it much better, but at least half the matches were of high quality, so it's tough to complain about that.
Here are my full grades for each of the matches on Sunday's SummerSlam card.
