There are always certain moments that define specific pay-per-view events, but with the show-stealers come many more matches that are amazing, but overlooked, due to another match being perceived as better.
SummerSlam is one of those events that has many memorable matches. Just to name a few:
- The Ultimate Warrior beating The Honky Tonk Man in 31 seconds for the IC title in 1988
- The British Bulldog beating his brother-in-law Bret Hart for the IC title in 1992
- The Undertaker vs. The UnderFaker in 1994
- The Rock vs. Brock Lesnar for the Undisputed Title in 2002
And that is not even close to the number of memorable encounters, but this list is not devoted to those matches. This list is devoted to those that get left behind in our selective memories.
