CJ's Top 5: Summerslam Matches

It's called, "The biggest party of the summer," and it has definitely provided done excellent moments over the years. With SummerSlam just around the corner, i decided to take a look back and list my top 5 SummerSlam matches. 


  Triple H vs. The Rock, Ladder Match- Summerslam 1998 

  Brock Lesnar vs. The Rock, WWE Championship- Summerslam 2002

  Bret Hart vs. British Bulldog- Summerslam 1992

TOP 5-

5. Shawn Michaels vs. Razor Ramon, Ladder Match 

Year:1995  Duration:25 min. 3 sec. Winner: Shawn Michaels 

This was the rematch from their groundbreaking ladder match from WrestleMania X. Though it didn’t live up to the first ladder match, this is still an excellent contest between Shawn and Razor. 

4. Bret Hart vs. Owen Hart, Cage Match for WWF Championship

Year:1994  Duration:32 min. 17 sec. Winner: Bret Hart 

Showing off the best that the Hart family had to offer, and it certainly didn’t disappoint. Anytime Bret and Owen stepped into the ring together, you knew it was going to be magic. This was an intense and fascinating matchup that was top-notch from start to finish. Even though Bret came out the victor, it further showcased just how great Owen Hart could be. 

3. Hardys vs. Dudleys vs. Edge & Christian, TLC 1 

Year:2000  Duration:14 min. 51 sec. Winner: Edge & Christian 

A revolutionary match between 3 of the greatest tag teams that the wrestling world has ever seen. This match, along with their match from WrestleMania 17, is still considered to be somewhat of a standard-bearer for both tag matches, as well as ladder matches. 

2. Triple H vs. Shawn Michaels, Street Fight 

Year: 2002  Duration:27 min. 20 sec. Winner: Shawn Michaels 

It was the return of “The Heartbreak Kid.” Shawn and Hunter absolutely beat the living hell out of each other in this match. Every time these two steps inside the squared circle together, you know there would never be a dull moment. Everyone will remember Triple H hitting Shawn in the back with a sledgehammer at the end of the match. More importantly, it showed that, even after 4 years away, Shawn could still hang and bang with the best of them. 

1. Mr. Perfect vs. Bret Hart, IC title match 

Year:1991  Duration:18 min. 4 sec. Winner: Bret Hart 
You want to talk about a clinic match, these two showed how wrestling should be done. We all know how incredibly gifted these men were in the ring, and it's a great example of the lineage and importance of the Intercontinental championship. Even more impressive is the fact that Hennig had some significant back issues during this match. This still remains as one of my favorite matches in history, and the content speaks for itself.
