On Episode 254, Big Dave returns to recap one of the biggest weekends of the year in pro wrestling….WWE Summer Slam!
The 2019 edition of the Biggest Party of the Summer had all the drama you would expect from a Big 4 PPV and lasting ramifications for WWE moving forward. On this Episode, Dave recaps the two weeks leading into Summer Slam ’19 and NXT Takeover Toronto II by reviewing Raw, Smackdown Live, and NXT leading into those two mega events.
From there, we move into the review of NXT Takeover: Toronto II. NXT has been the center of wrestling news the past couple of days and Takeover Toronto II, and the fall out from that event, had a lot to do with that. With all of the NXT Championships on the line, the event lived up to the hype. Big Dave reviews the event here on Episode 254, including the final chapter of the epic rivalry between Adam Cole and Johnny Gargano.
Also included on this Episode is a preview of Summer Slam ’19 recorded just prior to the event. That is then followed up with the Summer Slam ’19 review. It was a very good PPV, even though nothing truly shocking happened. How did Seth Rollins manage to slay The Beast yet again? How did “The Man” Becky Lynch and Bayley put away the latest challengers to their respective Championships? How did Charlotte Flair become the Queen of all Eras? Does The Fiend have one of the coolest entrances ever?And why did the outcome of Kofi Kingston v Randy Orton feel vaguely familiar to certain things that went down last year? Big Dave breaks it all down for you and contemplates might it all might mean moving forward here on this Super Recap of Summer Slam weekend for 2019.
