Last Sunday night, WWE presented its 26th annual SummerSlam pay-per-view live from the Staples Center in Los Angeles. As WWE's second biggest event of the year, it certainly lived up to the hype and exceeded the expectations of many members of the WWE Universe.
From a brutal battle between CM Punk and Brock Lesnar to an electric WWE Championship match between John Cena and Daniel Bryan, there was a lot to like about this show. Not only was the in-ring action awe-inspiring, but the event managed to produce a number of monumental moments as well.
However, while watching the show, I came across numerous parallels to 2011's installment, which was equally awesome. If they were done on purpose is beyond me, but they seem more like coincidences than anything else.
Then again, the summer of 2011 was amongst the best in recent memory, so it why wouldn't the WWE want to repeat that same success?
For those of you who are aware of my useless wrestling knowledge, I present you with 10 similarities I found that made this year's event eerily comparable to two years ago. In doing so, I'll prove to you why history does indeed repeat itself.
