Thank goodness the link didn't work. It's too gruesome for people to be looking at. Poor, stupid kid.
Mass Transit passed away a few years back, but as far as I know, it had nothing to do with that incident though.
As for Summerslam, it was OK. The match of the night had to go to Foley vs. Flair. Intense match with all the barbed wire and thumbtacks. It's kind of interesting to see Flair as a hardcore spot artist of sorts with his past match vs. Big Show on ECW and now Foley at SS. This was the type of action Flair berated Foley on in the past. I loved the idea of making Flair turn psycho. The ending was a letdown of sorts, with Flair about to stoop to a new low and tease at striking on Melina, but I like it for a long run feud between Foley and Flair, probably stretching to Survivor Series.
Chavo/Rey was decent, but personally, it's sort of hard for me to get into the feud because Chavo and Vicki sort of broke kayfabe a few months ago and celebrated with Rey after he won the WWE title at Mania, which seemed like a heartfelt moment.
Show vs. Sabu wasn't bad either, but I don't think it's an issue of Sabu being too small. I've never been a fan of anyone 6' 8" or taller wrestling in any type of match, no matter the gimmick just because a guy like Show slows down the pace of the match in such a way that it's tired and predictable. Sabu is a spot artist. Always was and always will be. He's been known to botch a few spots every now and then, but for the sake of in-ring athleticism, I think Sabu is an asset.
I didn't care much about Hogan vs. Orton. It certainly wasn't as well promoted as Hogan vs. HBK leading into last year's Summerslam and the match won't be mistaken for the 4 or even 5 star match Hogan and HBK put up. Just a formulaic match. I'm glad to see Orton lose in a way just because I tend to think that even the marks are tired of his gimmick and his promos.
Batista vs. Booker, like Hogan and Orton, wasn't well promoted and it seemed that the bookers just slapped this match on the card without much effort put into the progression of the feud. But then again, I think the plan all along was for Batista to feud with old "Sexual Chocolate" Mark Henry, but of course Henry is sidelined with an injury. Smackdown only has two lead faces and those are Rey and Batista; they had to have a face take on Book at SS.
I surely hope this was the blowoff match for the DX/McMahon feud. It was interesting to see Vince throw the kitchen sink and then some at DX with Kennedy, Regal, Finlay, Show, and Umaga making their appearances. It was predictable that Trips and HBK, in formulaic fashion, would go up "against all odds" and get the duke.
Edge and Cena is what you'd expect from the two when you put them together. As a smark who isn't a Cena hater, but otherwise believes Cena is a tiring act, I'm content Edge still has the strap. However, the WWE had a golden opportunity back in January to have Edge hold onto the title heading into Mania, given how refreshing of a heel he is, and ride the ratings. I think Edge, no pun intended, has lost some of his edge in that regard.
All in all, I wasn't expecting much and so I can't say I was disappointed with Summerslam.
