2. The pace and emotions of the match
Two great wrestlers make a great match, and that’s probably the simplest statement of the formula of what can lead to an effective wrestling match, But there’s so much more to it than the wrestlers themselves, because two great wrestlers can have a dud of a match. Seth Rollins vs. Dean Ambrose is an example of a feud fans wanted to see succeed between two of the company’s best performers but that flopped because of WWE booking Ambrose poorly.
In this storyline revolving around Seth Rollins, Dominik, Rey, Murphy, and even a few other characters, WWE has actually done a tremendous job of making it feel emotional and high-stakes without any title on the line.
Many fans could have gone without the Eye for an Eye match, but it certainly did kick up the story and gave Dominik a reason to have this huge singles match against the Monday Night Messiah at WWE SummerSlam 2020. There are real stakes here for both men, and Dominik has so many reasons to want to destroy Seth at the Pay Per View.
And so when we talk about these emotions in the context of a match between Seth and Dominik, we have to bring up how exciting the pace of this match could be. It could really showcase the speed and agility of both performers – Dominik looks like a hell of an athlete, and we all know how good Rollins is. Combine that with the brutality created by the emotional stakes, and you have the recipe for a SummerSlam classic.
