In the pantheon of WWE pay-per-views, only one event — The Grandest Stage of Them All, WrestleMania — outstrips SummerSlam in terms of prestige. Since SummerSlam first appeared on the WWE pay-per-view calendar in 1988, comparisons between it and big brother WrestleMania have only been natural. With The Biggest Party of the Summer celebrating its 26th installment on Aug. 18, now might be an appropriate time to draw parallels to WrestleMania once more by anointing a “Mr. SummerSlam.”

Shawn Michaels is widely accepted to be “Mr. WrestleMania” — the performer who spanned eras, celebrated milestone moments and routinely stole the show.

Armed with a loose set of criteria — match quality, milestones and endurance — WWE.com takes a crack at naming its own Mr. SummerSlam. After several editors provide their cogent reasoning why certain Superstars deserve the accolade “Mr. SummerSlam,” we offer our (perhaps controversial) choice and open up the Bracketology voting to you, the WWE Universe.
