Yes, there are matches missing from here that I might have personally included, but that’s what makes us fans. We get to be happy at what we get, but sad we don’t get more. There’s always the WWE Network to fill in any gaps you feel is missing here. What we do get is very very good.
There isn’t a documentary portion to this set, I will say that, and while that might have been cool, I don’t think it was really necessary. The matches speak for themselves, and the lack of talking heads just mean we get to sit and watch match after match, enjoying the action without any stalling. I thought the flow of matches worked really well too, with the chronological order and not overwhelming things with too much of the same in a row. Very nicely designed indeed.
This is a great education on the event for fans who might not want to go back and watch every single event in full, but for those of us who have already seen each event through the years, this is a really entertaining set that takes us back to a variety of awesome clashes in the shows history. Think of this as the equivalent to a music compilation CD or playlist full of your favourite songs, one great track after another. That’s what’s on offer here. The quality of ‘WWE: 30 Years of Summerslam’ is very high, and it’s one I will pop in from time to time, for sure, to go back and enjoy some of the very best parts of SummerSlam through the ages.
