Mike Reviews Every WWF/E SummerSlam Opening Match – 1988 to 1992

Happy Wednesday Everyone!

I did a series where I looked at every opener for WrestleMania so I decided to do it for SummerSlam as well. SummerSlam was always the pay per view I looked forward to the most in my younger days, and it usually had some of the better matches of the year on it. This week we’re covering 1988 to 1992, with every match being under tag rules. I guess they liked starting SummerSlam off with a tag match back in the day?

Mike Reviews Every WrestleMania Opening Match (36 to 37)

Happy Wednesday Everyone!

We enter the Two Night Mania Era this week, including two matches in front of zero fans that I’m absolutely dreading, but we’ll get through it. Both of these shows happened after I’d long since given up on following the WWE product on a week to week basis, so if there’s any relevant storyline stuff I miss out on then please feel free to note it in the comments section.

Because whenever I want to know what’s hip I always want to know what Vince McMahon thinks!

Mike Reviews Every WrestleMania Opening Match (2000 to XX)

Happy Wednesday Everyone!

Back with some more Opening Matches for ya’ll. This time we’re covering the year 2000 to 2004, which seems to mostly be matches for secondary or tertiary belts. I’m not sure why the WWF got into that habit during this period. I’m guessing starting the show with a Title match is an easy way to get the crowd invested?

Mike Reviews Every WrestleMania Opening Match (XI to XV)

Happy Wednesday Everyone!

After a brief break last week with Mania X, let’s pick these up again. I’m not really looking forward to this one because I don’t think any of these matches are what you could class as “good” based on my memory, but maybe they’ll surprise me?

Mike Reviews Every WrestleMania Opening Match (I to V)

Happy Wednesday Everyone!

I had an ongoing series on here where I would review Main Events, so Every WrestleMania Main Event, Every Starrcade Main Event etc.

I decided I would try the format with opening matches as well, just to see if it would garner any interest and whether I’d have any fun with it. We’ll start with Every WrestleMania Opening Match, and if you guys enjoy that we could always do other events and pay per views down the line.
