SummerslamWrestlemania is known by pro-wrestling fans around the world as the biggest show of the year. Everyone tunes in to watch the biggest stars competing on the grandest stage of them all. However due to such large expectations, Wrestlemania doesn’t always deliver quite as anticipated.Summerslam on the other hand, is widely viewed as the second biggest event of the year, but receives nowhere near the amount of hype as mania. Thus, there have been many times where Summerslam has actually been able to outshine its perceived bigger counterpart.  So now let’s take a look at 5 times when Summerslam was better than the Wrestlemania from the same year:

#5 1997

Taker vs Sid was the main event

Wrestlemania 13 had a few good matches but the main event between Taker and Sid fell a little flat. The saving grace of mania was the legendary bout between Stone Cold Steve Austin and Bret Hart that will forever be remembered as a truly historic moment.

The 1997 Summerslam event though was simply a better all-round show with a great match by Undertaker and Bret Hart. The bout between Stone Cold Steve Austin and Owen Hart also added quality to the event.
