Decide the next cSs live retro blog: Summerslam edition!

New, comments

Your favorite wrestling community is once again doing a live retro blog this Saturday night. The only thing is... I kinda don't know which one to do. So, I'll let you, the Cagesiders decide.

Since it's Summerslam season, we might as well do a Summerslam. But which one? Your votes will decide. But not from these; we already did them:


But you can decide from these options:

Summerslam 1988. The first Summerslam, highlighted by the blowoff match between the Megapowers and the Megabucks (and Elizabeth's surprise strip show) and Ultimate Warrior's quick Intercontinental Championsip win over The Honky Tonk Man.

Summerslam 1992. The first major show following Hulk Hogan's first retirement is highlighted by a classic between Bret Hart and the hometown British Bulldog for the Intercontinental Championship.

Summerslam 1994. One of the few shining lights of the New Generation Era featured Bret Hart versus Owen Hart in a steel cage classic, and the Undertaker returns to the WWF for the first time since the Royal Rumble as he takes on a fake Undertaker.

Summerslam 1997. Dubbed Hart and Soul, the WWF's first televised show in New Jersey in a decade features The Undertaker defending the WWF Championship against Bret Hart with Shawn Michaels as the referee, and Steve Austin suffering a life-altering neck injury against Owen Hart.

Summerslam 2001. The WWF-Alliance war was in full effect here, with the event highlighted by two unification matches, a hardcore ladder match, a war for the WWF title, and The Rock's first PPV match since Wrestlemania X-Seven.

Summerslam 2006. The first Summerslam to use the "biggest party of the summer" tagline featured the return of D-Generation X, Ric Flair and Mick Foley in a bloody I Quit match, and Edge shocking the world with his win over John Cena in front of his hometown fans. Also on the show: Hulk Hogan's last WWE match.

Summerslam 2008. The first PPV of the PG era is highlighted by the Undertaker facing Edge in a Hell in a Cell match and the first ever one-on-one bout between John Cena and Batista.

Summerslam 2009. 2009 deservedly gets a bad rap, but this event featured a second DX reunion, a thriller between Rey Mysterio and Dolph Ziggler, and Jeff Hardy's last WWE PPV match as he takes on CM Punk for the world title in a TLC match. Plus The Undertaker returns.

Summerslam 2013. Six words: the knee that beat John Cena. Plus the real WWE match of the year in 2013 when (soon-to-be, probably) former UFC fighter Brock Lesnar took on future UFC fighter CM Punk.

Summerslam 2014. Stephanie McMahon wrestles for the first time in over a decade as she faces Brie Bella, Dean Ambrose and Seth Rollins look to settle it in a lumberjack match, and Brock Lesnar competes for the first time since his shocking upset at Wrestlemania XXX when he challenges for John Cena's WWE World Heavyweight Championship.


Down below in that poll is where you vote. Highest vote total will be the show we do. Poll closes 8pm ET Friday, with the winner to be revealed at 1am ET Saturday morning.
