SummerSlam fever

Hey Scott,

With the early rumors that WWE is building to Daniel Bryan and BRRRRROCK LESNAR for the title at SummerSlam, which should be AWESOME, I'm getting a little SummerSlam fever. I've been watching a lot of the shows on WWE Network recently and it got me thinking for fun to lay down a challenge for you that the blog may enjoy also participating in.

Basically, I'm curious to see what you would rank as the top 10 SummerSlam events of all-time. And then to up the ante, what you would consider to be the top 10 SummerSlam matches of all-time. If you're really feeling froggy, you could list your favorite match from all 26 shows.

Enjoy your opinion, thanks!


​I actually missed a whole bunch of Summerslams because I lost touch with the product in 2005 and never really felt like going back to them, so I'm really not the best person to ask this one.  In fact, I barely remember 05 outside of Hogan-Michaels, skipped 06-09 entirely, only saw 2010 months later, and then skipped 11 and 12.  ​The show tends to come at the low point for my caring about WWE during the year.  
Just off the top of my head, I'd go:
1.  Bret-Bulldog 92
2.  Shawn-Razor ladder match 95
3.  Shawn-HHH street fight 02
4.  Brock-Punk 13
5.  TLC 2000
6.  Angle-Austin 01
7.  Bryan-Cena 13
8.  Rock-HHH ladder match 98
9.  Rock-Brock 02
10.  Jericho-Benoit 2000
I'm sure I'm missing obvious here, though.  I've heard good things about Punk-Cena but I've never actually watched it.
