WWE changed things up for Summerslam Axxess. They didn’t even call it “Axxess” as it was the “Summerslam Meet & Greet.” Apparently, this was not a very good substitute.
Brad Shepard reported on Oh, You Didn’t Know that the general feeling about the Summerslam Meet & Greet was that it didn’t really hold a candle to what WrestleMania Axxess is. This also created some disappointment within the fan base who attended the event.
“A source in WWE called this year’s Summerslam Axxess a shorter and dumbed-down version of the WrestleMania Axxess. You might remember, I also reported that Axxess wasn’t going to get good reviews from fans and this was per someone inside WWE.”
Summerslam’s Meet & Greet didn’t have a ton of hype like Axxess does. They also didn’t include as many Superstar signings and other activities for fans. WWE likes holding fan events before big pay-per-views to create bigger buzz, but it seems as if they missed the mark in a few ways with Summerslam’s version of Axxess this year.
