Guide Review - SummerSlam Anthology Volume 3 DVD Review
The shocking thing for me was looking back at the Invasion-era event in 2001. While the Invasion itself is considered a huge letdown, that era still produced some great PPV events. SummerSlam 2001 was one of them.
The 1999 and 2000 events took place at the height of the Attitude era. The '99 event garnered main stream attention when Governor Ventura served as referee in the main event. The '00 event was the night Kurt Angle became a legitimate main eventer in many people's minds. His gutsy comeback from a nasty accident gained him a huge amount of respect from wrestling fans.
The '98 event is the only one with a significant issue. It took place at MSG and used the short-ramp. The short ramp was in the hard camera view for the majority of the event and the blurring of that F took awhile to get used to.
