3 interesting observations from WWE SummerSlam 2019
Without any doubt, the recently concluded SummerSlam Pay-Per-View was an enormous success in terms of both creative booking and online buzz.
WWE stepped up their game for the "biggest party of the summer", and not only was the event entertaining from start-to-finish, but the show also left us with intriguing takeaways heading into Monday Night RAW.
Minor nitpicks aside, the WWE Universe felt a collective sense of enthrallment throughout the night, and let us hope that WWE capitalizes on this momentum for the upcoming weeks as well.
Here are a few interesting observations from WWE SummerSlam 2019:
#3: Why Bray Wyatt just successfully re-introduced the essence of supernatural in WWE
You know that a match/segment has made a successful impact when people chant "That Was Awesome" moments after it has ended.
The production crew deserve a special shout-out for making Bray Wyatt's re-debut look as polished as possible. It was not long ago that people passed it off as a joke whenever Bray Wyatt was compared to The Undertaker in terms of character finesse, but that remains in the past.
With The Fiend, Bray Wyatt has successfully re-introduced the essence of supernatural gimmicks in WWE. In 2019, it is almost impossible to take characters of such nature seriously. This is simply because we now live in an era where kayfabe constantly blends in with reality.
But somehow, Wyatt's creatively insane idea has done the impossible by translating the ominous Firefly Fun House skits into in-ring action on live television.
The sheer idea of introducing a character of such magnitude has made it clear that The Fiend deserves a 'special attraction' status within the company. With that being said, who do you think will be The Fiend's next target?
