Highlights from WWE SummerSlam 2019

The hottest wrestling event of the summer took place in my neck of the woods and I was there for it! It’s been almost 20 years since I last attended a WWE pay-per-view, but I was thrilled to be at the Scotiabank Arena for SummerSlam 2019! Not going to give you a thorough analysis of the show, but I thought I’d share a couple of highlights from the event!

My Favourite Professional Wrestlers of Today

It’s SummerSlam weekend! Since it’s taking place in my back yard, of course my wife and I will be there! Though we’ve been to wrestling events together in the past, we’ve never done a pay-per-view together before, where the stakes are at an all-time high. I still vividly remember attending Wrestlemania 18 and I want the thrill that comes with a major wrestling event of that magnitude. Titles will change hands! Winners will be determined! And maybe…just maybe…Brock Lesnar won’t win again? I hope so!

To celebrate, I’ve made a pair of posts about favourites. Today is the list of my favourite wrestlers today. Tomorrow is the list of my all-time faves! No better time than the present, so let’s go!

A Look Back at Wrestlemania 2000 on the Nintendo 64

During AKI’s legendary run of producing some of the best wrestling games ever made, they made two for the WWF: WWF Wrestlemania 2000 and WWF No Mercy. The latter is widely recognized by many – including me – as the single greatest wrestling video game of all-time. The former is…the precursor everyone forgot about in the shadow of the greatest wrestling video game of all time. Quite frankly, I have largely blocked out the existence of Wrestlemania 2000 from my mind until the opportunity arose to stream it on the eve of Wrestlemania 35. Playing the game again served as a great reminder for what makes it enjoyable to this day, but also why it faded into obscurity.

Road to Wrestlemania! WWF Wrestlemania 2000 on Nintendo 64

Wrestlemania 35 is in the books, but it’s never too late to revisit a classic! I dust off the Nintendo 64 to play the precursor to WWF No Mercy, WWF Wrestlemania 2000! We share a number of stories from wrestling’s past, my experiences with seeing a number of wrestlers at comic conventions, and my predictions for Wrestlemania 35!

My Post-Modern Approach to Following Professional Wrestling

My interest in professional wrestling comes in phases. In the early 90s, when I was an impressionable youngster who thought wrestling was real, I idolized the likes of Hulk Hogan, The Undertaker, and Bret Hart. I cried when Shawn Michaels kicked Marty Jannetty through the glass, officially ending The Rockers as a tag team. After a few year hiatus, I jumped back on board thanks to the one-two punch of fantastic AKI-made Nintendo 64 games and some of the best stories and action during the Monday Night Wars. I was even in attendance for Wrestlemania X8, where I screamed my lungs out as Hulk Hogan faced The Rock in one of the most legendary bouts of all time.

After ECW folded into the WWE in the 2000s, I took a long hiatus. Oddly, it was my wife who pulled me back in a few years ago, as she went through a phase where she was deeply invested in the Total Divas reality TV show. When the opportunity arose for us to see her favourite wrestlers perform at a local event, I’ve been “sort of” following the scene again ever since.

Wrestlemania X8 – Stone Cold Steve Austin vs. The Rock
