    Five SummerSlam matches that are a must-see

    SummerSlam 2008 –

    Winners Take All Match: Mickie James (c) and Kofi Kingston (c) vs. Beth Phoenix and Santino Marella

    This intergender tag team match was brought up recently as we witnessed a similar match at the Extreme Rules pay-per-view last month. The difference is this match was classified as intergender rather than a mixed tag. Becky Lynch and Seth Rollins recently faced Lacey Evans and Baron Corbin in a Winners Take All Extreme Rules match. It echoed the sentiments that were present over a decade ago.

    Prior to this match taking place, Beth Phoenix recently developed a relationship with Santino Marella. They referred to themselves as Glamarella. Phoenix would at time berate Marella and also critique him for his childish antics. Regardless they start their power couple status strong.

    The women didn’t shy away from interacting with the men during this encounter. As the match approaches its end, Mickie James thought she had the match won after a Lous Thesz Press but Marella breaks up the count. James makes him pay with a giant DDT. This was enough of a distraction for Phoenix to take advantage as she executes her Glam Slam to James.

    Phoenix picks up the win for her team and new champions were crowned.
