WWE presents SummerSlam live tomorrow night from the STAPLES arena in Los Angeles, California. The show is building up to have high potential and i’m sure all pro wrestling fans are looking forward to the event. In succession from WWE Money in the Bank PPV, the storyline that has been grasping everyone’s attention is the John Cena/Punk and Triple H storyline. Anyway, i’ll discuss that later in this column. So, let’s begin.
WWE Diva’s Champion Kelly Kelly vs. Beth Phoenix
This feud started when Beth Phineix eraned the right be the #1 contender to face Kelly Kelly as she won the Diva’s Battle Royal on Raw a few weeks back. Kelly was at ringside as she saw Beth win the Royal, so she stood up from the announcers booth and stepped into the ring. Kelly tried to congratulate, which resulted with Beth neglecting and beating the crap out of Kelly Kelly.
I’m not trying to be sexist but last few years, the Diva’s division have been awful. For some bizarre reason i will tolerate not going for a piss while this match is on. Maybe because just for the sake that i can write a bit about it. The winner, i’m possibly 100% sure will be Beth. I won’t treat you like a dumbass and say why.
Sheamus vs. Mark Henry
Mark Henry has taken out both Kane and Big Show, the sound technician and Kozlov last couple months. Henry has been on a path of destruction. The Smackdown general manager Teddy Long struggled to find opponents suitable enough to face him. But however, on the July 29 edition of Smackdown, the fierce Celtic warrior from Ireland came out and picked a fight with Mark Henry. Henry didn’t want to have anything to do with Sheamus so he quickly got out of the ring.
I’m looking forward to this match, it should be a good brawl, that’s what this is gonna be; a brawl. I don’t think it will be more than 15-20 minute mark. Sheamus will probably win cleanly to get him over as a face.
World Heavyweight Champion Christian vs. Randy Orton
This feud started when Randy Orton won the title from Christian a few months ago. After feeling as though he was cheated in their rematch, Christian earned another title shot and had his lawyers put a clause in the contract that Randy would lose the title if he was disqualified. At Money in the Bank, Randy snapped after Christian spit in his face. Christian won the title when Randy was disqualified for kicking him in the groin.
I know it’s yet again, another encounter between these two men but however, i am looking forward to this match. Why am i looking forward for this? Mainly because i’m guessing this will be the last match between these two, hopefully it will be. As for the winner, i’m going to pick Christian to retain the World title, about 30 minute match and i’m going to go out on the limb and say Christian will win cleanly by Pin Fall, perhaps he’s execute the kill switch whenOrton is turned.
WWE Champion John Cena vs. WWE Champion CM Punk
CM Punk won the title from John Cena at Money in the Bank which was also the final day of his contract. The following day, he was stripped of the title by Vince McMahon. A tournament was held to declare a new champion. That tournament was won by Rey Mysterio who went on to lose the title back to John Cena later that night. When John Cena was celebrating his victory, CM Punk made his return. New WWE COO Triple H resigned CM Punk and declared that both men were champions.
Well, this is going to be, yes GOING to be another 5 star match up. Who will be the winner? I have no clue who the winner will be. The match is unpredictable as it is, now Triple H has been added to be the match makes it even harder to decide as there’s conflict between all men in this match with each other. What if the Rock came out and played a part? Reason why i bring this up is that last Monday on Raw, they showed a Rock promo during the contract signing. This made no sense at all. It is likely to happen but what if it did? Anyway, as i said about this match, it’s unpredictable. I and i’m sure most of you all would like to see Cena turn heel, but looks like it’s not going to happen. It should be a 30-50 minute match, 5 star match. People paying admission to get in will get their money’s worth and people buying the PPV will get their money’s worth.
I don’t think you should be streaming this. Why? This will be another good PPV, even if your only looking forward to the Cena and Punk match, not having to worry about lagging on streams to watch this, would be worth to just as well buy the PPV.
There will be more matches added but that’s all i will be previewing. Overall i think it will be a good show and no doubt the main even will steal the spotlight it deserves. Make sure to keep checking back to the site as the staff’s PPV predictions will be posted up in one column tomorrow (Saturday). We will be doing a SummerSlam recap which will be completed by Derek after SummerSlam that night or early in the morning.
Enjoy the Show!
All for the Celtic Warrior Sheamus winning this Sunday!
It sounds like it should be a decent PPV, but honestly, there’s so little build up for most of the matches that I’m not willing to pay for it. Orton/Christian is getting stale, but should technically be a good match. Henry/Sheamus will be interesting as Sheamus is good and is getting over as a face, but Henry is pretty terrible; as long as it’s mostly a brawl it will be ok. Pheonix/K2 will be pretty awful, Beth should win, Kelly needs to be released or at least go to FCW and actually learn to wrestle.
Cena/Punk should end with a clean Punk victory, but I can see WWE giving Cena the win, or the match being a let down. HHH will obviously play a part, and that honestly makes me less interested; it hints towards a dirty win, plus all rumours point to HHH not caring about Punk and trying to get himself over more. It won’t be 5 stars, neither was their match at MITB.
Really, WWE has made some terrible decisions for this PPV. Punk shouldn’t have returned as soon, so it should be Rey/Cena. They should actually have built the other matches on the card, not add them at the last minute or on Smackdown, because it reduces the buyrate if they don’t build the matches or announce them before the show. To say that SummerSlam is supposed the be the second biggest PPV, I can’t say that I’m very interested in it at all mostly because the build-up for most of the matches has been poor
Yea it may not b hyped up that great but its all talk about Cena/Punk. I don’t think WWE need to spend a whole lot tbh. Like Social Media for WWE has been great, they don’t have many ads anymore. Even if a PPV is bad, it’s going to be trending on twitter anyway for example. The IWC itself hypes up the PPV’s.
Hate to say but I kinda agree with Beth in regards to the Cdma/Punk match, hope we’re wrong tho. I wouldn’t mind seeing Barrett vs Bryan added to the show. The thing about the WHC match is the fact that they haven’t really been building up a real #1 contender. I love what they’ve done with Henry but don’t want to see him challenge for the title, and would like to see Sheamus built up as a face a bit more before he challenges for the title. Maybe have another strong feud or two before getting a title shot.
Ray who do you see challenging for the title once Christian and Orton are done, and where does Orton go after his program with Christian?
Orton will probably face Henry after all this. Sheamus will probably face Christian, i can see Christian winning at SS. Even if Sheamus is hyped or not, i just see it happening to be honest.
I don’t see the Cena-Punk match getting anywhere close to 50 minutes. Maybe it’s just me. The first match had a lot of slow moments in the beginning in which both guys are just keeping it slow so the crowd didn’t burn themselves out in the first five minutes of the match. I think the rematch will have a slightly faster pace and hence the same time or maybe less time. I’m guessing 30-35 minutes. No more than that.
Well i read on the observer newsletter i think it was, that they were aiming for a 45 minute match up. Yea they’ll build up from slow to fast. For the match to be successful i think it does have to be faster paste than MITB.
Beth/Kelly-I hate to say it, but K2 is probly gonna win.
Sheamus/Henry-I wannna say Sheamus, but probly Henry. Not to sure their.
Christian/Orton-Randy has been in this type of match before. So I’m sayin him although I wouldnt mind Christian winning.
Cena/Punk-I see HHH turnning heel and helpping Punk win.
