    Let's go back in time for some interesting moments in the Summerslam history.

    Sorry for the bad quality of the pic, but that's the only one I found.

    Anyway, you can see why Summerslam 1992 was so great. 

    Fortunately for Shawn Michaels, Sensational Sherri came to his rescue.

    The 1991 edition of Summerslam was headlined by one big match and a wedding.

    Miss Elizabeth tied the knot in the middle of a WWF ring.

    She was a beautiful bride, but it was nothing compared to her performance at Summerslam 1988.
