WWE SummerSlam 2019: 5 Astounding moments from the PPV
This year's SummerSlam event lived up to expectations and it turned out to be one of the best WWE pay-per-views of the entire year. The card was stacked with so many big matches and several legends were part of the show. WWE didn't disappoint us as they delivered another solid show.
Even though many major Superstars were missing from the event such as Roman Reigns, Braun Strowman and Drew McIntyre, the show was still good and the other Superstars stole the show.
From the return of Goldberg and Trish Stratus to major victories for Seth Rollins and Charlotte Flair, there were some notable and astounding moments during the massive event.
In this article, we will look at the 5 most astounding moments from the show and how they either positively or negatively affected the pay-per-view.
#5 The SmackDown Women’s Championship
Bayley defended her title against one of SmackDown’s biggest rising stars Ember Moon at SummerSlam. This match had gold-standard written all over it, however, the booking was not strong enough to make it seem like Ember was a threat at all.
While there were many expectations attached to this championship clash, the match merely existed at the end of the day. We didn't even manage to get a few good spots or moments out of these two extraordinary performers.
Never once did it feel like Bayley would lose, nor did the commentary team adequately put Moon over as a threat to dethrone her.
It was startling to see how Moon’s first major match on the main roster was so mild and felt like almost nothing at the end of the night. Many would even consider it to be the worst match of the night which is really bad for Moon as it seemed like she was finally getting a push.
