Tonight the WWE will air their official 25th anniversary edition of Monday Night Raw (even though the actual anniversary date was a couple of weeks ago, but whatever). To commemorate the occasion, they have advertised a ridiculous number of returning stars (Steve Austin, Shawn Michaels, The Undertaker, Scott Hall, Kevin Nash, etc) for what should be a fun nostalgic trip down memory lane.

Anything can happen in the world of pro wrestling, and that’s just talking about the scripted action. When you add in the element of live television (or being part of an arena crowd), the potential for something unplanned is even higher.

SummerSlam in one of the longest-running Pay Per Views in WWE history, and one of the original “Big Four”, along with WrestleMania, Survivor Series, and the Royal Rumble. And as you’d expect with any PPV with an extensive history, there have been more than a few incredible matches which have taken place at this event over the years, from technical masterpieces, to the most ridiculous gimmick matches ever seen. For your consideration, we’ve gathered up what we believe are the absolute best matches to take place at SummerSlam over its lifetime, and there are a lot of them. Honestly, if you’ve never seen any of the matches on this list, make sure you remedy that, and soon.
Since his retirement following WrestleMania XXVI, it seems like Shawn Michaels has spent most of his time running around the various wilds of Texas, hunting, fishing and generally staying as far away from the squared circle as he can. Well, his hiatus from the world of wrestling looks like it might be over for a while, as it has been reported that HBK has taken a job at the WWE Performance Center, where he’ll be acting as a trainer for the “finishing” class of NXT recruits, taking over a job vacated by Terry Taylor, who recently had neck surgery and is not expected to return to the same position when he recovers.
