SummerSlam 2007 DVD Review

By September 24, 2007

Follow me on:

On Tuesday, WWE Home Video will release SummerSlam on DVD. This was the 20th edition of the PPV event and featured the returns to the ring of Triple H and Rey Mysterio.

What I Said Then: This is one of the worst SummerSlam events in the illustrious history of the show. If you missed this show and were thinking about ordering the replay, I would discourage you from doing so.

Has My Opinion Changed? Slightly. Watched in DVD format, the show is better because you can watch it at your leisure. With the exception of the Batista vs. Khali match, which is entertaining in a car-crash sort of way, nothing on the show is offensive. However, it isn’t an exciting enough show to dedicate three straight hours to.

Overall Recommendation: Rent. While I didn’t recommend the $40 replay of the show, the DVD is only half that price and the show seems twice as good on DVD. Additionally, the bonus feature of Vince on Carlito’s Cabana is really funny and when added to his Mae Young sketch on the main program, there is a great element of humor on this DVD. I would actually wait for this DVD to be released as part of an inevitable SummerSlam box set. If you would like to buy the DVD, click here for the best price.

Matches on the DVD:


  • DVD Extra: Vince McMahon & Triple H on Carlito’s Cabana
  • DVD Extra: End of Kane vs The Great Khali from 8/17 SmackDown
  • Kane vs. Finlay
  • Intercontinental Championship: Champion Umaga vs. Carlito vs. Kennedy
  • Rey Mysterio vs. Chavo Guerrero
  • Diva Battle Royal
  • ECW Championship: Champion John Morrison vs. CM Punk
  • Triple H vs. King Booker
  • World Heavyweight Championship: Champion The Great Khali vs. Batista
  • WWE Championship: Champion John Cena vs. Randy Orton

Whine Up by Kat deLuna has been overdubbed by some latin music. More WWE Home Videos theme songs got overdubbed like Royal Rumble 2002 and 2007, Sometimes I kind of wonder whats up with that.
