The SmarK Rant for WWF Summerslam 99 – 08.22.99
Here’s another one DESPERATELY in need of a redo from the original version back in 99. This was also one of the first DVDs released by the WWF, although I bought it and never watched it again. Oddly enough, it also marks one of the shows where I bought it twice on DVD, because I got the original DVD release and then also bought the various Summerslam Anthology sets and ended up with 99 duplicated as a result. And now I’m just watching it on the Network anyway.
Live from Minneapolis, MN, drawing 17370 and a 1.61 buyrate, about the same as 98 in fact. Clearly the product was still red-hot even as Vince Russo was self-destructing.
