WWE Pay Per View Classics

Thought out the history of the WWE the fans have come to wittiness many evolutionarily moments, superstars have come and gone… main event players taken though injury others though retirement and then there are those who were cut down in their prime…

Championships that have stood for decades, held by true champions gone as new championships took their place…Matches that have always been there…replaced of those of high danger levels with riskier moves…

So each week we take a look back at the past pay per views and show the results of some of the most incredible rivalries on some of the greatest stages in some of the most beautiful arenas around the world…

(The above post will always stay the same but for each post the following of course will be different)

Summerslam 1999

European & Intercontinental Championship Match: European & Intercontinental Champion D’Lo Brown vs Jeff Jarrett…

For the first time in history a duel champion would pit up both their championships in a single match…

It would take the betrayal of D’Lo Browns longtime friend Mark Henry, hitting the champion with Jeff’s guitar aiding Double J to leave a duel champion…

Tag Team Turmoil Match:

The good news was that whichever tag team won when all was said and done they would become the number one contenders for the tag team championships and would get a title match less than twenty-four hours later, the very next night on Raw…

The bad news was that if they were teams one or two they would have to run the gauntlet to eliminate all teams to claim the top prize…

Match one: Edge & Christian vs Matt & Jeff Hardy…

In the opening bout it would be the old brood (Edge & Christian) taking on the new brood (the Hardy’s) with Gangrel at ringside…

These four men would prove to be some of WWF’s greatest high flyers but it would be Christian pinning Matt to eliminate the Hardy’s…

Match two: Edge & Christian vs Viscera & Mideon…

The power and strength would be squarely in the camp of the new team taking on Edge & Christian with a weight advantage of over 8oo pounds…

But their momentum would hinder not help and it was Christian once again getting the pin, this time over Mideon…

Match Three: Edge & Christian vs Prince Albert & Droz…

While the new team would not be as big or heavy as the last team was, the advantage was still not in the corner of a team that had kicked of the whole turmoil tournament…

But Edge & Christian were on a roll and it would be Edge spearing Albert for the pin…

Match Four: Edge & Christian vs The Acolytes…

After running through three teams and tuning back their challenges Edge & Christian would have to contend with fatigue setting in and it would prove their downfall as Bradshaw pinned Christian…

Match Five: The Acolytes vs Hardcore & Crash Holly…

In the final match of the tag team turmoil and despite being cousins Hardcore and Crash holly would have some communication problems…

This would be to such a degree that they would be fighting amongst themselves, Faarooq would take advantage and pin Hardcore Holly.

Hardcore Championship Match: Hardcore Champion Big Boss Man vs Al Snow…

Moments before this match was due the Road Dogg would interrupt Proceedings to issue a challenge to the Hardcore Champion (who ever that would be) that he wanted a title match the next night on Raw…

The Road Dogg would remain by this match doing on the spot commentary as the stars battled their way through the back, out into the street and even across the street in to a pub…

It would be the Road Dogg that would hit the champion with his own nightstick to aide Al Snow to win the match and once again become Hardcore Champion…

Women’s Championship Match: Women’s Champion Ivory vs Tori…

This one would not last long, as Tori was hell bent on revenge for an attack by the champion, even though Ivory would retain her championship she would go a step further and try to strip Tori only for Luna to come and chase her away…

Lion’s Den Weapons Match: Ken Shamrock vs Steve Blackman…

Unlike the year before at the same pay per view there would be weapon legal in this bout, ironically this would be Shamrocks type of match but it would be Blackmans own choice of weapons that hung from the pit walls…

With Shamrock knocking out Blackman with a kendo stick, Blackman would not answer the referee’s ten count giving the victory to Shamrock…

Love Her or Leave Her Street Fight: Shane McMahon vs Test…

With stipulations added to this match if test lost he would no longer be able to date Stephie McMahon but if Shane lost he would have to butt out of the young couple’s love life…

With the Mean Street Posse at ring side they would get involved several times, both superstars would try to hammer each other into the canvas…

Test would take out the ref. allowing the Mean Street Posse to help Shane put his opponent though the announce table, but test wouldn’t stay down no matter what Shane did…

Patterson and Brisco would return and take out the Mean Street Posse as test would hit Shane with the boy wonder’s own move, a top rope elbow for the win much to the delight of Stephie McMahon…

Tag Team Championship Match: Tag Team Champions X-Pac & Kane vs the Big Show & the Undertaker…

For the second straight Summerslam Kane would be defending the tag team championships but at least he tuned up for this one but despite his hopes, his wishes fell by the waist side as the Undertaker would pin X-Pac for the win…

Kiss My Ass Match: Bad Ass Billy Gunn vs The Rock…

With a larger than life woman at ringside who’s ass the rock would kiss if he lost the first ever kiss my Ass match got underway…

Billy Gunn would gloat to long and would end up kissing the ass he himself brought to the ringside and would soon fall to the people’s elbow to lose to the Rock…

Triple Threat WWF Championship Match: WWF Champion Stone Cold Steve Austin vs Triple H vs Mankind: Jesse “the body” Ventura as Special Referee…

The special referee had been warning all three superstars all night that it would be almost anything goes, each could go what they wanted, there would be no rules save one, the pin or submission had to happen in the ring…

Triple H would have the pin and the match via using (against the ref’s rulings) a steel chair but the referee would not count, in the end Stone Cold would lose the WWF Championship to Mankind but at least he could say he was pinned for it…

So closes the file on Summerslam 1999

Been a fan of the WWE since 2000, watched a few from the early years online, wasn’t a fan of where the “Powers that be” were taking the company but it has gotten better with the brand split, I thought that it was a format that worked
