Previously on the Best and Worst of SummerSlam: Roman Reigns won the Universal Championship from Brock Lesnar, Finn Bálor broke out The Demon just to beat up Constable Corbin, and Becky Lynch finally got tired of playing second fiddle and threw hands at Charlotte Flair. One of those things ended well!

Here’s the Best and Worst of WWE SummerSlam 2019, originally aired on August 11, 2019.
Kick Off, With Me Oh Yeah, Kick Off, With Me Tonight
Two-hour Kickoff Shows are a strange beast. If there’s anything WWE needs to get better at in the near future from a production standpoint, it’s time management. They can run a one-hour show, fill it with great matches, and still have time for promo packages, backstage interviews, vignettes, and moments of character development; but they run a 3-hour show and the matches are all 90 seconds long so they can do 20 minute promos about nothing and air 45 pizza, fried chicken, and Cricket Wireless commercials. It’s a George Lucas thing. When he’s got no money and nothing but troubles, he makes essential art. When he’s a billionaire who can do whatever he wants, he sits in a chair drinking coffee and farts out the Phantom Menace.
