Triple H to Edge – Top 5 Mr. SummerSlam contenders in WWE history

0

Seth
Rollins
(6-2)

Over
the
active
short
timespan
of
his
career,
Seth
Rollins
has
already
produced
some
incredible
moments
at
SummerSlam
to
get
into
this
list.
His
singles
career
witnessed
a
major
boost
after
scoring
a
win
in
a
Lumberjack
Match
against
Dean
Ambrose
in
2014.

A
year
later,
the
then-Architect
outsmarted
John
Cena
in
a
Winner
Takes
All
match
to
not
only
retain
his
WWE
Championship
but
also
win
his
first
United
States
Championship
and
thereby
become
a
dual
champion.

The
very
next
year,
Rollins
gifted
one
of
the
top
match
contenders
for
the
year
against
the
newly
debutant
on
the
main
roster,
Finn
Balor
but
he
came
up
short
in
that
inaugural
Universal
Championship
match.

For
the
next
three
years,
The
Visionary
of
Drip
walked
out
of
SummerSlam
with
Raw
Tag
Team
Championship,
the
Intercontinental
Championship,
and
the
Universal
Championship,
respectively.
In
2019,
he
pinned
Brock
Lesner
to
win
the
Universal
Title
at
both
WrestleMania
and
SummerSlam
which
is
an
incredible
record.

His
last
two
SummerSlam
matches
with
Dominik
Mysterio
and
Edge
didn’t
have
any
championship
gold
on
the
line
but
that
didn’t
stop
him
from
delivering
the
best
matches
on
the
card.
Rollins
is
still
a
top
superstar
on
Raw
and
he
is
expected
to
produce
more
such
gems
down
the
road.

Triple H (8-5)

Triple
H
(8-5)

Over
the
span
of
17
years
between
1995
and
2012,
Triple
H
competed
in
thirteen
matches
and
won
eight
of
those
to
cement
himself
as
one
of
the
marquee
players
at
SummerSlam.

After
a
debut
win
over
Bob
Holly,
he
went
on
to
have
a
hellacious
Steel
Cage
match
against
Mankind
in
1997
followed
by
an
iconic
ladder
match
against
The
Rock
over
the
Intercontinental
Championship,
the
very
next
year.

In
the
2002
edition,
an
Unsanctioned
Street
Fight
gave
birth
to
the
best
match
of
the
feud
between
Triple
H
and
Shawn
Michaels.
2003’s
Elimination
Chamber
main
event
match
win
over
the
World
Heavyweight
Championship
is
also
one
of
the
most-talked
matches
in
SummerSlam
history.

Triple
H
went
on
to
pick
up
wins
over
Eugene,
The
Great
Khali,
Legacy
faction,
King
Booker,
and
The
McMahons
over
the
course
of
the
next
few
years
while
in
his
last
SummerSlam
appearance
he
put
over
Brock
Lesnar
on
the
latter’s
way
to
become
The
Conqueror.

Randy Orton (8-7-1)

Randy
Orton
(8-7-1)

Since
his
debut
in
2002,
Randy
Orton
is
one
of
the
most
familiar
names
to
have
performed
in
The
Biggest
Event
of
the
Summer
with
eight
wins,
seven
losses,
and
one
match
that
ended
via
TKO.

Orton’s
first
big
win
of
his
career
occurred
in
2004
when
he
knocked
off
Chris
Benoit
to
become
the
youngest
world
heavyweight
champion
in
WWE
history.
The
process
of
building
a
Legend
Killer
in
him
continued
as
took
on
The
Undertaker,
Hulk
Hogan,
and
John
Cena
in
the
next
few
years.

In
2011,
Orton
culminated
in
his
stretched
rivalry
with
Christian
by
clinching
a
No
Holds
Barred
win
over
the
World
Heavyweight
Championship.
After
a
year’s
hiatus,
he
cashed
in
his
Money
in
the
Bank
contract
to
pin
Daniel
Bryan
and
win
the
WWE
Championship,
creating
one
of
the
most
shocking
moments
in
WWE
history.

The
following
year,
The
Apex
Predator
put
over
Roman
Reigns
in
a
memorable
outing.
For
the
rest
of
the
2010s,
he
squared
off
against
Sheamus,
Brock
Lesnar,
Rusev,
and
Kofi
Kingston
in
not-so-memorable
matches.

However,
the
future
WWE
Hall
of
Famer
bounced
back
in
2020
by
participating
in
a
solid
physical
WWE
Championship
match
against
Drew
McIntyre.
Also
last
year,
his
Raw
Tag
Team
Championship
with
Riddle
received
one
of
the
loudest
pops
in
SummerSlam
history.

Edge (12-2)

Edge
(12-2)

Despite
his
incredible
track
record,
Edge’s
name
remains
underrated
when
it
comes
to
SummerSlam
history.
But
statistics
show
that
the
Hall
of
Famer
has
lost
only
two
matches
at
the
summer
spectacle.

One
of
those
losses
came
in
a
Tag
Team
Turmoil
match,
all
the
way
back
in
1999
while
the
other
loss
occurred
against
The
Undertaker
inside
Hell
in
a
Cell
in
2008.
Both
these
bouts
are
top-notches
to
have
upped
his
game.

The
first-ever
official
Tables,
Ladders,
and
Chairs
Match
for
the
Tag
Team
Titles
had
Edge
team
up
with
Christian
against
The
Hardy
Boyz
and
The
Dudley
Boyz.
The
three
legendary
tandems
put
up
an
instant
classic,
forcing
WWE
to
arrange
more
TLC
matches,
down
the
road.

In
2005,
The
Rated-R
Superstar
solidified
his
moniker
and
rose
to
stardom
as
a
singles
competitor
by
obliterating
Matt
Hardy
in
a
highly
personal
contest.
Next
year,
Edge
defeated
John
Cena
in
the
latter’s
home-state
for
the
WWE
Championship
in
one
of
the
biggest
wins
of
his
career.

After
missing
SummerSlam
in
2007
and
2009,
the
eleven-time
world
champion
played
a
part
in
Nexus’ downgrade
on
the
roster
before
heading
into
unexpected
retirement.
After
the
monumental
comeback,
Edge
delivered
the
best
match
of
the
SummerSlam
2021
card
against
Seth
Rollins,
living
up
to
his
standard.

Brock Lesnar (6-4)

Brock
Lesnar
(6-4)

No
superstar
has
been
more
dominant
than
Brock
Lesnar
in
the
history
of
SummerSlam
even
after
considering
the
four
losses
he
had
experienced.

Back
in
2002,
Lesnar
decimated
The
Rock
to
become
the
youngest
WWE
Champion,
at
that
point,
emphatically
declaring
that
‘the
next
big
thing’
has
arrived
in
the
WWE.
He
lost
the
title
a
year
later
to
Kurt
Angle
at
SummerSlam
2003
before
he
eventually
left
the
WWE.

A
decade
later,
The
Beast
Incarnate
was
again
unleashed
on
the
WWE
Universe
who
went
on
to
not
only
clinch
a
win
over
Triple
H
at
SummerSlam
but
also
break
his
arms
for
good.

Lesnar’s
hot
streak
at
the
summer
pay-per-view
continued
as
he
bested
CM
Punk
in
2013
and
then
John
Cena,
the
very
next
year.
Suplex
City
turned
into
a
reality
during
the
bout
against
Cena
and
history
shows
no
other
superstar
showed
such
dominance
over
WWE’s
franchise
player
in
a
WWE
Title
match.

The
Undertaker
managed
to
secure
a
win
over
Lesnar
in
2015
but
he
never
pinned
or
submitted
him.
In
2016,
Lesnar
returned
to
the
winning
track,
by
picking
up
a
TKO
win
over
Orton
in
a
match
filled
with
blood.

The
then-longest
Universal
Championship
reign
continued
for
the
top-most
superstar
of
the
WWE
as
he
toppled
three
elite
Raw
Superstars
in
a
Fatal-4-Way
SummerSlam
Main
Event.

2018
and
2019
installments
brought
back-to-back
losses
for
him
from
Roman
Reigns
and
Seth
Rollins,
respectively
with
the
Universal
Title
hanging
in
the
balance.

The
quest
of
getting
that
title
back
continued
for
Lesnar
when
he
made
a
triumphant
return
at
last
year’s
SummerSlam
to
confront
Roman
Reigns.
This
Sunday,
the
eight-year-long
saga
will
finally
come
to
an
end
when
the
duo
will
collide
in
a
Last
Man
Standing
Match
for
the
Undisputed
WWE
Universal
Championship.
