WWE Summerslam held its press conference after the show and we were able to go there to attend it.
WWE Summerslam held on the 5th of August was a great night as it took place in Detroit, Michigan and there were many fans in attendance, making it a great success.
The city of Detroit played host to a number of WWE dramas on Saturday night, as the ongoing storyline of The Bloodline took center stage once again for wrestling fans and the city served as the backdrop for many of the narratives for WWE Summerslam.
In a battle of “Tribal Combat,” Jey Uso challenged Roman Reigns for the Undisputed WWE Universal Championship as well as to be recognized as the “Tribal Chief.” The biggest question was how would Solo Sikoa and Jimmy Uso play a role?
There are also three additional belts at stake at WWE Summerslam, as Asuka is battling Charlotte Flair and Bianca Belair for the Women’s Championship, which Bianca won. However, Iyo Sky cashed in her Money in the Bank contract to win the championship for the first time. As for the World Heavyweight Championship, Finn Balor took on Seth “Freakin” Rollins, and Gunther defended his Intercontinental Championship against Drew McIntyre.
The event was attended by over 50,000 WWE fans from all over the world. In the early stages of WWE Summerslam, there were already activities for fans to take part in. C4 Energy was giving away its new product to attendees at the event, and it proved to be beneficial since the weather outside was extremely hot and humid. In addition to the activation held by Cricket Wireless, 2K Games was also there to offer fans the chance to play WWE 2K23 and cut promos as WWE superstars.
With their tremendous advertising investment in the Detroit market, WWE was able to leverage billboards, digital out-of-home advertising, and media displays all over the city, demonstrating a significant investment in this market.
When it came time for an epic match between Rhodes and Lesnar, both stars were more than ready to deliver. In order to prolong their wait until WrestleMania 40, WWE intends to keep Rhodes far from the WWE World Heavyweight Championship. Despite Rhodes’ popularity, he remains the favorite to face Reigns in the main event of WWE Universe. There was a big surprise in the outcome of this match when Brock Lesnar decided to endorse Cody Rhodes, which was something no one anticipated would happen.
On Friday at the San Diego Comic-Con, WWE had its annual panel. During this, Chelsea Green “crashed” the WWE-Mattel panel and got in on the action.
It was during the time when Mick Foley, Seth Rollins, and Johnny Gargano were out on stage that Green interrupted Rollins while he was chatting about his own action figure that he interrupted Rollins. Eventually, she joined the panel for the remainder of the discussion, and Mick Foley expressed his praise for her role as one of WWE’s current champions for her accomplishments.
Furthermore, as part of the panel, Rollins discussed his feelings as the new World Heavyweight Champion as well as how he wants that title to be viewed similarly to the WWE Championship in terms of positioning. Mattel also revealed itslineup of WWE action figures that will be released in the coming next year.
Rob Van Dam’s twenty five plus year career in the world of professional wrestling speaks for itself. His first break came in Extreme Championship Wrestling back in 1996 when he made his debut. RVD’s unique high-flying style and his character resonated with the hardcore fans. This lead him to win the ECW Television Championship in May of 1998. He held the championship until the year 2000. What is fortunate for him, is that he signed with WWE (Then WWF) in 2001.
His success did not stop there as Rob Van Dam headlined several WWE shows and won numerous of championships on the grand scale. He won his first WWE Championship in 2006 when he defeated John Cena at WWE’s version of ECW One Night Stand.
In early 2021, WWE announced that Rob Van Dam would be an inductee into the WWE Hall of Fame! With his career going from ECW, to WWE, to Impact Wrestling, Rob Van Dam is a perfect candidate for this prestigious honor. Rob Van Dam was officially inducted during the week of WrestleMania 37!
This past week at New York Comic Con, I followed up with RVD and his wife and occasional wrestler Katie Forbes as we talk about New York Comic Con, his action figure collection, and his induction. It was RVD’s first appearance at New York Comic Con and he and Katie Forbes were excited to see the fans!
