Jim Cornette comments on the SummerSlam main event

Roman Reigns defeated Brock Lesnar in SummerSlam, the biggest pay-per-view of the summer, in what was heralded as the latest chapter in their rivalry. The two protagonists put on a memorable show, with the Beast even using a tractor to demolish the ring.

Their epic saga began way back in 2015 when the 'Tribal Chief' took on Lesnar at WrestleMania 31. The former Shield member will be called upon to face Drew McIntyre at 'Clash at the Castle', the highly anticipated event that took place.

will take place in the UK in early September. In the latest edition of the 'Drive Thru' podcast, former WWE manager Jim Cornette took a detailed look at the SummerSlam main event. While not considering it a great wrestling match, Cornette highlighted how enthusiastic fans came out of the arena.

Jim Cornette talks about SummerSlam

"If we analyze the quality of the match, which was valid for the world title, it was one of the worst matches I remember" - Jim Cornette began with great frankness. "The WWE has instead hit the center in terms of entertainment.

They satisfied all those fans who regret the Attitude Era and who for years have been asking the company to propose such a show. Neither the contest nor the result was important, the goal was to get a very strong reaction from the public" - he added.

Jim also talked about Keith Lee, who is doing the big voice in All Elite Wrestling. “Just before the pandemic broke out, Keith Lee's character had taken a terrible turn and the WWE Universe was getting fed up with him.

All the COVID-generated mess was lifesaving for Lee, as people forgot what had happened before. Since then, WWE has gone to great lengths with Keith Lee. He changed his clothes, his music and even his ring name. At some point, against all odds, they released him.

I still haven't understood the meaning of that decision”. The Stamford federation hosted SummerSlam last Saturday, giving emotions and twists. WWE may not be the perfect destination for everybody, as wrestling veteran Jim Cornette pointed out recently.

"..You can't write for the Briscoes. And that's one reason why if they had gone to the WWE they probably would have not been recognized as one of the best tag teams in the business over the last 10 or 15 years or whatever because they would have been a fish out of water. You can't write for 'em, you have to let them be them."
