JSC Radio Ep. 48: #RetroReview – SummerSlam 1997


PHILADELPHIA (JSC) —  What’s good people! After last week’s rather heavy episode, it was time to shake things up and change the vibe. As y’all know, this show doesn’t have a set format, per se. But this is definitely a big Pro Wrestling (not “Sports Entertainment”) Spot here at House JSC. And I decided a few weeks ago to try something different.

Episode 48 is the first official #RetroReview, which will be a quarterly show that reviews one of the classic “Big 4” WWF/WWE Pay-Per-Views: Royal Rumble, WrestleMania, SummerSlam, and Survivor Series. After Episode 28 looked at Ric Flair’s incredible win in the 1992 Royal Rumble and Episode 36 looked at my all-time favorite WrestleMania matches, it was time to go all in and review a full PPV, and no better place to start than going back 20 years to SummerSlam 1997, when things were definitely changing in the World Wrestling Federation and in the business in general.
