The Five Most Memorable Summerslam Moments

With Summerslam being one of the biggest pay-per-views of the year, it is certainly no surprise that this event has been responsible for some of the most memorable moments in the WWE. So, let us take a look at some of the best moments in Summerslam history via WhatCulture.

Jeff Hardy Vs. CM Punk (Summerslam 2009)

One of my favorite moments in Summerslam history is the match between Jeff Hardy and CM Punk in 2009. In my humble opinion, this was one of the best matches including an always successful combination – tables, ladders, and chairs!

Hardy Boyz in the First TLC Match (Summerslam 2000)

Yes, another spot goes to the Hardyz, but come on, what is not to love about these guys? During Summerslam 2000, they were responsible for the first televised WWE TLC Match, and it was a corker! Of course, the Hardy Boyz were not the only ones responsible for this epic match, because it also included iconic wrestlers such as the Dudley Boyz and Edge & Christian.

Shane McMahon Falls – Literally! (Summerslam 2000)


2000 was a fantastic year for wrestling, especially where Summerslam is concerned. Not only was this year responsible for the first TLC match, but it was also the time where Shane McMahon took a dive from the Titantron.

Hulk Hogan Vs. Shawn Michaels (Summerslam 2005)

The following memorable moment is quite self-explanatory because this was a dream match between the Hulkster and Sexy Boy Shawn Michaels. It is unlikely that we will ever get a match between these legends again, so this is one to treasure forever.

The Ultimate Warrior Vs. The Honky Tonk Man (Summerslam 1988)

Even though I was only one year old at the time, I watched this match later in life. The energy of the Ultimate Warrior was so infectious, especially when he came out as a surprise contender for the Intercontinental Championship. R.I.P Ultimate Warrior, keep on running!

Team WWE vs. Nexus (Summerslam 2010)


Nexus was not one of my favorite factions, but this match certainly was. During the time where Nexus invaded RAW, John Cena created a team that would battle Nexus; this included surprise entry, Daniel Bryan.

Shawn Michaels Vs. Triple H (Summerslam 2002)

I think everyone remembers the match between Shawn Michaels and Triple H. The match was quite a surprise though because Michaels was set to retire forever in 1998. In true WWE style, Shawn Michaels returned to battle his former best friend.

Orton Cashes in on Daniel Bryan (Summerslam 2013)

As a big Daniel Bryan fan, I was livid when Orton cashed in during Summerslam. Even though Bryan lost the match, he would eventually get his title back at the biggest event of them all – WrestleMania 30.
