For those of you who didn't see the best party of the summer, also known as Summerslam, I will just go ahead and say that this event was not worth the buy. Many who bought it say it wasn't a wonderful PPV and was a major disappointment overall.
From what this writer saw, it was ok at best. Not enough for me to want to buy the replay of the whole thing. For those who watched it online, I applaud you for your way to save money. As I did the same.
In any case, the biggest part of the PPV for many was the return of "American Dragon" Bryan Danielson. "Daniel Bryan" made his return as the seventh man for Team WWE in the Elimination Tag Tournament against Nexus.
The teaser was given out for many when Danielson turned down events for upcoming months. Then at the PPV itself, The Miz was ready to be the member of Team WWE they so desperately needed, but John Cena said the spot was filled.
I, for one, had the idea that it would be cool to see Danielson return to the WWE at Summerslam. I didn't think it would happen, so I never wrote anything about it, and joked with friends about it. But to my surprise, he was there.
He impressed as always, even if Michael Cole tried to downplay it.
The Miz did make a cameo to hit Danielson over the head with his briefcase. Funny how he could have used it against a fallen Sheamus earlier in the night, but I digress.
The Miz is a hot name right now in the WWE, so I have a feeling he will be the man Danielson goes after when he makes an appearance on RAW tomorrow. It's obvious he will be there, people.
No one is sure why the WWE let the American Dragon go. He worked many Indy events with the WWE allowing Danielson to work anywhere he wanted. The only rule was that he couldn't be on TV.
I thought the firing was real, and as it turned out, it was. But to please the masses that add money to the organization, the WWE let Danielson go legitimately. They kept him under their wing until the situation decreased, and once it did, they brought him back.
Summerslam is a big event, so bringing him back there was a nice plan on their part.
I personally thought his appearance defined the PPV because it's not worth the buy overall just for Danielson. But, he did stick around for a little while and put on a clinic. So, youtube it while you can. Or, find a link to it if you really want to see it.
But, spending 50 to 70 bucks on this PPV is really not needed economically. Buy gas with it, people; it's pretty high these days.
I for one am excited to see the "Best Wrestler in the World", back in the WWE. He never deserved to be let go for his actions, seeing as he only did what he was told, and the camera was put right on him. He deserved his job back, and he got it.
I can now say, thank you World Wrestling Entertainment, for giving Danielson back to us.
