It’s finally here! It’s SummerSlam! We’re finally going to get some answers:
- Who will emerge as WWE Champion: John Cena or Daniel Bryan? OR will Randy Orton cash in his Money in the Bank, shocking everyone?
- Will Christian’s ‘One More Match’ with Alberto Del Rio result in another World Heavyweight Championship reign? OR will Damien Sandow best his former best friend, Cody Rhodes, and cash in his Money in the Bank?
- Can CM Punk tame “The Beast Incarnate” Brock Lesnar, and proving that “The Best In the World” is better without being a Paul Heyman Guy?
- If we’re all watching SummerSlam, who’s watching Total Divas?
But what’s the “Biggest Block Party of the Summer” without music? And while the WWE has used both Major Lazer’s “Reach for the Stars” and Clinton Sparks’ “Gold Rush” leading up to this year’s event, we reached into the past wrestling soundtracks for our favorite anthem:
“SummerSlam Jam!” from the Simon Cowell produced Wrestlemania: The Album. Taking Soundbytes from some of the WWE’s best Superstars – Bret “Hitman” Hart, The Undertaker, “The British Bulldog” Davey Boy Smith, “Macho Man” Randy Savage – and setting them to music, “SummerSlam Jam” still stirs up all the excitement for the Pay Per View: the good, the bad and the ugly. Throw in a guy who drops in, and drops 16 bars by rhyming “man”, “jam”, “slam” and “program” (or his sensational hair refying / death defying / pumping iron / roar like lion sequence), and you have a classic. Maybe not a timeless classic but a classic none the less.
