Summerslam liveblogging Part VII

By Rick Morris

As I predicted, we saw an excellent Hell in a Cell Match, at least 4 1/2 snowflakes. Edge hit a lot of high-impact offense early on, only to have 'Taker come back in the end with an insane combo that included a Last Ride, a "Con-Chairto" and other big moves. After the pinfall, Undertaker returned to the cage and gave Edge a chokeslam off a ladder that sent him through the ring, then the pyro crew errrr Undertaker set the hole in the ring on fire. Intriguing to see where they go from here, including keeping Edge's heel heat (no pun intended). La Familia was seen backstage cheering for the Undertaker, so that part of the story remains interesting.

This match, as great as it was, could not completely salvage a thoroughly mediocre pay-per-view -- the second-biggest show of the year no less. Thumbs squarely in the middle.
