SummerSlam hits Brooklyn

The 29th annual SummerSlam

The World Wrestling Entertainment tries each and every year to put on the best show they can. On Sunday, Aug. 20, WWE did not disappoint. The popularity of WWE has now transformed the event into the Summerslam weekend in Brooklyn, NY, with the event not just being one show anymore. Now, it hosts events like NXT Takeover Brooklyn and includes the weekly shows Raw and Smackdown Live all taking place in the same arena. From shark cages to fatal four ways, everything was both interesting and fun for the fans to watch. With different matches taking place, not to mention the appearance of wrestlers and their unique physiques, it was truly a spectacle.

The interesting dynamic of WWE is the unbelievable amount of wrestling styles that are on display. Fans still see the old school style of wrestling like punches and body slams, but you also have the new style of kicks and flips from the new age of wrestlers. These were on full display at SummerSlam from the first to the last match. Cruiserweights dazzled the fans and people like Brock Lesnar and Samoa Joe slammed into everyone in the arena.

It is a type of show that keeps fans engaged in the wrestling product even if they were not interested before. With WWE’s second biggest show of the year being over, fans were treated to an event that would “slam” other forms of wrestling away.
