The Most European Uppercut Ever Possible. Ever.
The Most European Uppercut Ever Possible. Ever.

Well, it was good knowing John Cena and Dean Ambrose. They will be missed.

No, but seriously – Summerslam was a very well done show which delivered on so many levels – from the action to the storyline progression – we had the highs of a new Intercontinental Champion to the lows (arguable) of The Authority coming out on top on multiple levels. Then, Raw followed it up by extending a lot of what we saw on Sunday night, and truly setting us up for the era of Brock Lesnar’s dominance in the WWE.

Who will save us this time? …actually, maybe the question is: Do we want to be saved?

For most of the last 30+ years of my life, I've been watching WWE. As a kid, Monday Night Raw hooked me from the start. From Bret Hart and Razor Ramon, to Stone Cold Steve Austin and The Rock, to CM Punk and Daniel Bryan.. I've witnessed the ups and downs and I'm proud to have enjoyed pro wrestling through the years.

Though I now watch in a much different fashion than I did when I was a kid (finding out Vince McMahon was the owner and Jack Tunney no more than a figurehead was like finding out Santa Claus did not exist), I feel like I have a much greater appreciation for the hard work pro wrestlers do and the things they sacrifice to entertain us.

It's still real to me, dammit!
