As part of this weeks celebrations for WWE’s SummerSlam Pay-Per-View, earlier today the WWE.com team put together their picks for who they would name Mr SummerSlam in counterpart to the touted Mr WrestleMania trope with a certain female superstar once again breaking the mould.
Interestingly among legends and Hall of Fame Inductees such as The Undertaker and Shawn Michaels, WWE.com editor Jeff Laboon made his Mr SummerSlam pick none other than Charlotte Flair after Charlotte’s recent winning streak on the PPV. Check out Jeff’s pitch below and let us know if you agree!
Shawn Michaels always shined at WrestleMania when the lights were brightest. A reputation built on instant classics earned him the nickname of Mr. WrestleMania. So, who would be his SummerSlam counterpart? Which Superstar routinely steals the show at The Biggest Event of the Summer?
Jeff Laboon: Charlotte Flair reigns over SummerSlam, boasting a 4-0 record in four marquee matches.
Her SummerSlam debut came alongside Paige & Becky Lynch in a Nine-Woman Tag Team Match that set the tone for the Women’s Evolution. She followed up by pinning rival Sasha Banks to capture the Women’s Title, then she snatched the SmackDown Women’s Championship from Becky Lynch to pin Carmella in a thrilling Triple Threat Match. Last year, The Queen submitted Trish Stratus in the WWE Hall of Famer’s hometown of Toronto.
The Queen knows SummerSlam is her stage, and she always delivers with her hand raised in the end.
