"This DVD really brought back memories of the attitude era, back at a time when the wrestlers had personality, not to mention good theme songs to match that personality. Back at a time when wrestling was more of a soap opera, and a darn good one at that. Yes I miss those times, having not followed the WWE in a few years now still believing they could do so much more with the talent they have and have really messed up what was a very good thing. It was great to relive the attitude era again through this pay per view. This pay per view has the following matches: Ivory vs. Tory for women's championship - probably the most boring of the matches although it ends funny.Lion's Den Match Ken Shamrock vs. Steve Blackman - I enjoyed this match very much, don't think anything like it has been done in awhile. D'lo Brown vs. Jeff Jarret with Debra, two titles on the line ... good match with an unexpected ending. Nice to see the puppies again.Tag team championship match Kane and Xpac Vs. Undertaker and Big Show. Obviously Kane and Xpac are at a weight disadvantage here, but don't count them out. This match is a pretty long one.Hardcore Championship Match Big Boss Man vs Al Snow... this match was one of my favorites, if not my favorite.. they are using everything, and going everywhere.Kiss My Rear Match The Rock vs. Billy Gunn ... I doubt anything like this has been done in a while. The commentary by Jim and Jerry is hilarious.Love her or leave her match Shane McMahon vs. Test.. this match is hardcore to put it mildly, and rather amusing as well... very good match.Triple Threat Match Stone Cold vs HHH vs Mankind with Jesse the Body as referee ... excellent match through and through. Definitely the best match along with the hardcore championship match. Jesse the body shows who is boss throughout this match.There is also a hilarious speech given by Chris Jericho in this pay per view that is probably the single funniest moment in the pay per view, at least in my opinion, among other things that made the attitude era great.Considering the price you can get this pay per view DVD for now, I'd say you should get it immediately.. it's definitely worth the money if you are a fan of the attitude era."
GOOD PPV... WORTH THE WATCH

"SummerSlam was definitely one of the better PPVs of 1999. Asmany remember, the preceding PPV, Fully Loaded, established the"End of an Era" between Vince McMahon and Stone Cold Steve Austin. So who's the top bad guy now, the one Austin will have to tear a new one into? You guessed it, it's the man who's presently the top heel in the Federation right now, my personal favorite, the one who calls himself the game: HHH. This PPV featured HHH's first time main eventing and I was more than excited and hopeful for the triple threat title match. Now he wasn't much of a great top heel during this time in late August, more whiny..., but he eventually develops, especially when he reforms DX and goes up against the former top heel, Vince McMahon. But that's future stuff.SummerSlam itself was a definite enjoyment, and the twists, outcomes, and overall matches were satisfying. My personal favorite match of this night is the "Love Her or Leave Her" match with Shane O' Mac pitting against Test, who was on his way to a big push (God only knows what happened). The outcome of the match would have a lot of effect on the WWF's storyline in the future, as you WWF fans all know. Well, the match was great and I gained a lot of respect for Shane's ability to take good bumps. Besides that, the other matches such as Badd Ass and Rock were decent. Here's another thing: Badd Ass was getting a push but losing this match put him back in the bottom or middle of the barrell. The tag team title match of Taker & Big Show vs. the champions X-Pac and Kane was even okay, and you gotta give that trooper X-Pac some credit. He's small and corny and sure he did cost him and Kane the title so... you know what, forget the credit. But the match was good and strengthened the alliance between Show and Taker. The main event, the triple threat match for the WWF title, was a real knockout. No one seemed to care that Ventura was the guest referree, and were focused completely on Austin, Mankind, and HHH. I'll spoil this for you: HHH doesn't win, but that didn't bother me since I had a feeling he would win the next night (and by God, he did, only to lose it to Vinny Mac two weeks later).Good PPV, I highly recommend it, especially since 1999 spewed out some real crappy ones."
One of the best Summerslams I've ever seen

"This Summerslam was one of my favourite of them all if not my very favourite.With a wild hardcore title match,a double titles mastch to crown the eurocontinental champion,a Lion's Den match and much more.I will now give my match by match review basing each match out of ten stars.
Eurocontinental title match 1.D'Lo Brown(C)V.S Jeff Jarrett a good match to start off the show with some cool moves by D'Lo and some good wrestling by Jarrett. 7.5/10
Tag Team Turmoil Match 2.E and C V.S The Hardyz V.S Droz and Albert V.S The Acolytes V.S The Hollys V.S Mideon and Viscera very good amtch non stop action,cool moves,with a very unusual ending. 8/10
Lion's Den Weapons Match 3.Ken Shamrock V.S Steve Blackman A very intense storyline going in but I hated this match nothing good about it with little weapon use and lack of any real wrestling. 0/10
Women's Championship Match 4.Ivory(C) V.S Tori horrid god awful match do not watch once. -5/10
Hardcore Championship Match 5.Big Bossman(C) V.s Al Snow Now this is where the PPV gets back on track again.Great hardcore brawl that goes into the back,out on the streets,into a bathroom,and into a bar.Great Match. 8.5/10
Tag Team Championship Match 6.Big Show and Undertaker V.S Kane and X-Pac(C) I actually really enjoyed this match cool moves,good wrestling,and a good finish. 8/10
Love Her Or Leave Her Greenwich Street Fight 7.Test V.S Shane Mcmahon great hardcore brawl between these two that was even better than the hardcore title match that night.Match of the year contender battle. 9/10
Kiss My Ass Match 8.Billy Gunn V.S The Rock excellent match with Rock carrying Gunn to the best match of Billy's career. 9/10
Triple Threat Match For The WWF Championship 9.Triple H V.S Mankind V.S Steve Austin(C) good match,not as good as I thought it would be considering the individuals involved but still a good match. 7.5/10

Summerslam was a good PPV

"Summerslam featured some great matches such as the Triple Threat for the World Title between Triple H,Austin,and Mankind,The Greenwich City Street Fight between Test and Shane,Tag Titles on the line between Kane and X-Pac defending against The Undertaker and Big Show. PLUS,Jesse The Body Ventura refs the Main Event,Is it HHH's night at Summerslam,will Austin retain the title,or will Mankind win the title for the 3rd Time? Will Test be able to keep seeing Stephanie without Shane butting in? Find out,ORDER Summerslam on DVD or VHS,its a must see. The best match in my opinion was The Greenwich Street Fight. As with WrestleMania 15,you can switch back and forth with Superstar Commentary from HHH,Mankind,and Austin during the Main Event or just have JR And The King call this one. Summerslam is a pretty good DVD and I cant wait to order Royal Rumble and WrestleMania 2000 on DVD."
Had some high points to it!!

"This summerslam had some flaws in it, but overall it was a decent show. Here's the list of all the matches and my opinion about them.1. D-lo brown vs Jeff Jarrett (IC belt)
This was a decent opener, but not anything too special! Best part of the match was when Mark Henry double-crossed D-lo to join Jeff Jarrett.2. Tag Team Turmoil Match
This was a very entertaining match. Two teams start off and as one team is elimanted, another one comes in. Edge and Christian put on a good show by elimating the Hardys, Albert and Droz, Midian and Visceria before being put out by the Hollys. Hollys couldn't get along which lead to the APA picking up the victory.3. Al snow vs Big Boss Man (Hardcore Title)
This match was a little entertaining, but overall not that great of a match. I would have rather seen Road Dogg vs Al Snow.4. Ken Shamrock vs Steve Blackman (Lion Den Match)
Not Bad! I think the main reason people didn't like this one is because neither Shamrock nor Blackman are known for entertaining, they are more into the wrestling. Shamrock knocked out Blackman with the Kendo Stick, a weapon Blackman is a master at using.5. Tori vs Ivory (Women's championship)
You might want to fast forward thru this one, definately the worst match on the show.6. Test vs Shane O Mac (Street Fight)
At first I didn't think this match would be that good because Shane is not a trained wrestler and Test hadn't been in a PPV since Wrestlemania 15 and he was just thrown in a match at the last second, but I was dead wrong. This was easily the best match on the show and Shane continues too prove that he can hang with the big boys. Both guys took the fight to each other, they used a stop sign, mailbox, and a picture frame. Shane also dove off the top rope and landed a vicious elbow drop onto Test on the Spanish Announcer's table. Mean Street Posse interfered alot in this one, but patterson and brisco saved the day for Test. Test won and was allowed to date Stephanie without Shane butting in their business. Of course, we all know what ends up happening at the end of the year!7. Kane and X-pac vs Big Show and Undertaker
Again, a decent match but nothing special. X-pac did kick out of a big show chokeslam but couldn't survive the tombstone. A decent showing by all four guys.8. Rock vs Billy Gunn
This was a match where the loser had to kiss the other guy's [behind]. This one didn't last very longer which was a little disappointing, but it was very entertaining. Nice match. Rock wins but Gunn didn't have to pucker up to the rock, but someone else instead, if you seen it you know what I'm talking about!9. Triple Threat Stone Cold vs Mankind vs Triple H
This was where Triple H was beginning to receive his big push that he felt he deserved a long time ago. Jesse "The Body" Ventura was the ref. Jesse did a great job officating the match-up as he forced Chyna to leave the ring and toss Shane McMahon out of the ring with some unfriendly remarks. The match went back and forth, no one really had complete control of the match-up. The funniest part of the match was when Triple H hit both Austin and Mankind with the chair and tried to pin Mankind to win the match and Jesse stood there with his arms crossed (He told all 3 guys he wouldn't count if they used objects to win the match). Triple H pedigreed Austin, Mankind broke the count and delivered a double arm DDT to seal the deal. Triple H gets mad and takes out his frustration on Austin after the match.
Good match, the only complaint I had about the match was the fact that writers made Mankind lose the belt the day after to Triple H.Overall, it did have some real [bad] matches but it has some really good ones as well. With enough good wrestling in it, I would recommend it to anyone who truly loves wrestling."
