WWE SummerSlam 2020 was a good event on the whole, though a step down from previous SummerSlams for obvious reasons.
WWE SummerSlam 2019 was one of the better PPVs from the series, with several strong matches and The Fiend's debut, but not one of the best.
I would give SummerSlam 2018 a thumbs-up and am looking forward to seeing where certain storylines will take us in the coming months in WWE.
WWE SummerSlam 2017 was a mix of the excellent and the awful, the long and the short, the memorable and the forgettable. So, a mixed bag.
On the whole, WWE SummerSlam 2016 was worth watching, and the John Cena vs. AJ Styles classic is the match that you should track down to see.
Overall, I give SummerSlam 2015 a thumbs-up. It's not the best SummerSlam ever, but it's one that will be remembered for some time to come.
SummerSlam 2014 was very good on the whole, and it's a show that will not soon be forgotten in a year of some pretty memorable WWE moments.
SummerSlam 2013 was probably the best WWE show of the year, and it could be a good long while before we get another supershow that matches it.
WWE SummerSlam 2012 is an intriguing card to try and provide an analysis of because it manages to excite and disappoint in equal measure.
WWE SummerSlam 2011 is better than I remembered. It's one of those shows that seems weak on the surface, but it has lots of action to enjoy.
WWE SummerSlam 2010 is an unusually weak major show for the company, with a couple of big matches being surrounded by pure filler.
WWE SummerSlam 2009 was an enjoyable show with the opener and main event being the best matches on the card and thus highly recommended.
WWE SummerSlam 2008 is a pretty eventful and exciting show. The double main event, in particular, is well worth you checking out.
WWE SummerSlam 2007 has its moments that are worth checking out. In particular, there are two major returns and a very good main event match.
WWE SummerSlam 2006 is as jam-packed with star power as you would find from any card not named WrestleMania.
WWE SummerSlam 2005 is a right mix on the quality scale. Some of the matches are very good, but others are a major disappointment indeed.
WWE SummerSlam 2004 is a pretty good show with three of the main four matches delivering, particularly the final match itself.
Its reputation is hindered by how it ended, but WWE SummerSlam 2003 is still a card that is worth checking out.
WWE SummerSlam 2002 is, put simply, the greatest SummerSlam ever, with Shawn Michaels' incredible return to the ring being the highlight.
WWF SummerSlam 2001 is quite entertaining, though a notch below both the preceding 2000 and subsequent 2002 cards.
On the whole, WWF SummerSlam 2000 was a fantastic event, in particular for Shane McMahon's fall, the TLC bout and the three-way main event.
If you’re after worked shoots, Russo booking, and more Arquette, WCW New Blood Rising 2000 has you covered.
WWF SummerSlam 1999 is your typical B-level Attitude Era PPV, but the big problem with this is that this was an A-level show.
WWF SummerSlam 1998 still stands out as one of the most fondly-remembered and thoroughly entertaining PPV events of the Attitude Era.
I strongly recommend that you watch WWF SummerSlam 1997, and in particular the Mankind-Hunter, Owen-Austin and Undertaker-Bret matches.
WWF SummerSlam 1996 has a double main event that is worth watching, but unfortunately, there is nothing else of major interest on this card.
WWF SummerSlam 1995 is remembered for one thing and one thing only: the Ladder rematch between Shawn Michaels and Razor Ramon.
Looking back, WWF SummerSlam 1994 is a pretty underrated show, especially considering the sky-high quality of the Steel Cage match.
WWF SummerSlam 1993 happened towards the end of an important transitional stage for the company with clear change in the air.
WWF SummerSlam 1992 is an unforgettable entry for the annual summer series., with one of the most famous main events in company history.
WWF SummerSlam 1991 is an absolute nostalgia trip of the highest entertainment value in the Golden Era with lots of colourful characters.
With only one really good match and some strange match lay-outs elsewhere, WWF SummerSlam 1990 is an odd event to say the least.
Overall, WWF SummerSlam 1989 was a fun show to watch. I’d recommend it to anyone as it makes for very easy viewing and is rather enjoyable.
Summing this up, WWF SummerSlam 1988 is a bit of a stumbling start for the summer spectacular with a few gems amongst some dull content.
