Why SummerSlam 1992 Is The Greatest WWE PPV Of The “Golden Era”

It's coming home, It's coming home, It's coming... Wrestling's coming home!

Wrestling is full of eras. Attitude, Ruthless Aggression and the Monday Night Wars to name but a few, which are also possibly the most recognised. However, the era that I will always hold closest to my heart, as will most people my age, is the Golden Era. This was when I first got into wrestling. A wonderful period of faces that you love, heels that you hate, iconic voices on commentary and before the internet had destroyed kayfabe.

When this period started in 1988, I was 10 years old and wrestling was real. We were treated to some great PPVs between then and 1993 when the New Generation kicked in. Now, while WrestleMania V will always occupy a special place in my heart due to the fact is was the first 'Mania I ever saw, there's one show that stands out even more as possibly the greatest of this era. SummerSlam 1992. So, without any further dallying, sit back and let me explain why.

P.S. This article includes spoilers. For anyone reading this that hasn't seen this show, you really need to watch it!
