Recently, there was a article published on Fansided predicting the WWE SummerSlam event.
While the article was well written and in-depth, there was one problem. That problem is that the predictions made likely won’t happen. Though, what the predictions did do was create a card that would have any WWE fan excited.
There is reason for WWE fans to be excited. Even though there are still about four weeks until the SummerSlam pay-per view, the likely card has the potential to be one of the best WWE pay-per view events of the year.
There have already been two matches confirmed for the event.
WWE champion John Cena will face Daniel Bryan for the WWE championship.
There are many directions that WWE can go with this feud. The expectation is that WWE will incorporate the new show on E! “Total Divas” into the storyline. Regardless, there is no question that Bryan is the hottest character in WWE at this moment. There has been speculation in WWE that Vince McMahon is not sold on Bryan and that sentiment has been publicly shared in recent Monday Night Raw segments.
That is why there may be some question as to whether or not WWE would push Bryan as WWE champion.
To be honest, this situation reminds me of CM Punk in 2011. 2011 was the summer of Punk. It was in the summer of 2011 that Punk essentially became the top star in WWE. That rise in status was largely due to his run with the WWE championship. It is not out of the question that a successful feud and consequent victory over Cena at SummerSlam could finally put Bryan over as a top character.
Speaking of Punk, the longest-reigning WWE champion in the modern-day era will likely be a part of the biggest match on the SummerSlam card. In a feud that ignited on Monday Night Raw, Punk will face Brock Lesnar at SummerSlam. The build-up to Punk-Lesnar at SummerSlam should be one of the best build-ups in WWE history.
The promos made by both Punk and Paul Heyman on Monday were brilliant. There is no question that both Punk and Heyman are the best at what they do.
Those two matches alone make SummerSlam a heavily anticipated pay-per view event for WWE.
Though, they will not be alone.
Over the next few weeks, expect the likes of World Heavyweight Champion Alberto Del Rio, Dolph Ziggler, The Shield, Bray Wyatt, Randy Orton, Cody Rhodes, and Damien Sandow to engage in various feuds for WWE SummerSlam.
