Wrestling Observer Live: What WWE SummerSlam is missing, SmackDown recap

Jim Valley is back with a preview of tonight, Ric Flair's Last Match, and more.
Drew vs. Sheamus

It's Saturday and that means a new edition of Wrestling Observer Live.

Because it's a weekend, that means I have a preview of tonight's SummerSlam and what it's missing as successful cards have a key ingredient that the show is missing.

Plus, I talk about Ric Flair's Last Match pay-per-view Sunday, Starrcast weekend, and the trends started by Conrad Thompson and his undeniable influence on the wrestling business.

Will we see more wrestlers promote their own retirement matches outside of WWE? Who could be next? Could someone make an announcement Sunday night? Who might stay under the WWE or AEW umbrella when they retire?

Plus, I talk about Friday's Roman-less SmackDown, WWE Clash at the Castle, Stardom and New Japan creating the IWGP Women's title, and more.
