I don't know about this being the official SummerSlam thread. Do with it what you want but coming out of Raw i just wanted to talk about it a bit and saw there was no official thread.

Coming out of Raw This is how SummerSlam is looking to me.

Brock Lesnar vs Triple H.

This could be good but the build needs to start actually happening instead of showing a million recap videos. actually do something with Lesnar and Triple H. Hell the match is gonna happen now it's confirmed let's let Lesnar be on TV again. we know he really isn't quitting and suing WWE.

Punk vs Cena vs Show

I would rather see Cena vs Punk again. Big show seems to always just make matches more boring and slow. Plus i don't know how well he will fit in the build. with that said i don't think it will be bad.

Sheamus vs Del Rio (Rey Mysterio may be added)

If it's just Sheamus vs Del Rio then that will just bore me. i don't want to see that but if Rey get's put in this match i will find it interesting because i actually like Mysterio and i think it will make the match a lot better if it's a triple threat...i just don't know if WWe wants to do 2 triple Threat matches in 1 night.

Ziggler vs Jericho

Loving this feud. both are great wrestler. Will most likely steal the show. nothing bad to say about it.

Miz vs Christian

These 2 haven't been feuding for very long but i have really enjoyed the little feud they have going as of late and i hope they get to have a match on the show.

Bryan vs Kane

I figure these 2 will have a match at the PPV and Charlie Sheen will be involved somehow. I'm not too interested but with Bryan in it im sure it won't be bad.

Other matches that could happen as a filler or be on the pre show.
Kofi & Truth vs PTP
Ryback Squash
Sandow vs Clay
Santino vs Cesaro
Albert vs Tyson Kidd

Not sure what they will do with Orton. Maybe a match with Cody Rhodes since Cody isn't doing anything as of late. Wade Barret could also come back and face Orton too i guess. Maybe Henry?

Sin Cara, Zack Ryder, David Otunga, Heath Slater could also be apart of the show somehow.

This card looks okay but I don't know, doesn't really have that SummerSlam feel. Brock vs Triple H could be huge but if they're going to kepe these guys off TV most weeks then it's pointless. Punk vs. Cena would have been huge, although I don't mind them adding show it does bring it down. ADR vs. Sheamus we've seen a million times. Jericho vs. Ziggler could be a show stealer though. Anyway, not spending $70 bucks on this by the looks of it. To the streams!


Think I'll have a wank over these tomorrow.

I think Barrett should return and face Orton.
As for Rhodes I'd have him jump ship and win the US title. It keeps him on television and at that mid card level until they are ready to main event him. Plus Santino pretty much needs to lose it as soon as possible.

According to F4WOnline.com, one idea currently being discussed by the WWE creative team for SummerSlam is Kane vs Daniel Bryan, with Charlie Sheen appearing in Kane's corner.

I'd be fine with this.

Looking at a pretty good card. But thinking back to the passed summerslam events in the last 5 years i haven't really enjoyed any of them so i won't get my hopes up on this one.

Lesnar vs Triple H
Punk vs Show vs Cena
Sheamus vs Del Rio
Rey vs Miz
Jericho vs Ziggler
Kane vs Bryan
Kofi & Truth vs PTP
and on the pre show
Cesaro vs Santino

Could still see Sandow vs Clay and Ryback vs Jinder... possibly even Sin Cara vs Cody Rhodes. with the way WWE has liked to add these last min matches lately.

Surprised to see Randy Orton not doing anything here. Maybe Barret will return and attack him or something.

I'm actually surprised WWE even announced 7 matches for this. I don't understand why they don't like plugging their pay-per-views outside of the main events. Card looks decent but like Adam said they always drop the ball for Summerslam so my expectations are low.

I reckon it might be surprisingly good. Hopefully it 'changes the landscape' somewhat though. We definitely need to see new World heavyweight, tag team and united states champions.
Keep the WWE on Punk and the IC on Miz.

I think match wise Lesnar/Triple H is obviously the big one we are anticipating. Have no drive for the WWE match but the WHC should be good. Rey/Miz sounds like the kind of match that could really deliver. I think Jericho/Ziggler will steal the show though.

I actually want Triple H vs Lesnar to last like 3 minutes and just have Lesnar break Triple H's face. He needs to be dominant.

Yeah Lesnar needs to win this one. But if he wins I can see them making it cheap. I think Punk could screw Triple H as I still think this Heyman/Lesnar/Punk faction needs to happen. Makes sense story wise anyway.

Brock needs the win more then HHH, and I think it would be great if they took him out of action and had Brock go out there and kick the shit out of anything for a month or so, even if it meant Haitch got the upper hand in the long run, I would like to see something different happen to shake things up a bit.

In a match like this though you have to consider the fact that Triple H could blind Lesnar with that long nose of his. If he hits that move Lesnar's vision will be gone and Hunter will be able to hit the pedigree.

Lesnar needs to beat the shit out of Triple H so bad that Triple H is hospitalized and can't resume his role as whatever the fuck he is at this point. Have Heyman get that role somehow so he can book Brock Lesnars future matches and pretty much making it like the Ryback scenario for a while where Brock just kills guys and they all fear Paul will put them in a match with Brock.

Eventually they could do an angle where someonecomes back... Let's say Evan Bourne and have Brock "re injure" Bourne. and have this be in St Louis and have Randy Orton come out there and run Lesnar off (Orton & Bourne both from ST Louis they could say they are friends....they also both love smoking pot. lol) Then you would have Lesnars next big angle and you could do Lesnar vs Orton at Survivor Series.

Or Triple H wins and Lesnar looks like a bitch and the bosses on in law looks unbeatable again...

There you have it, a semi-literate ignoramus from Alabama just booked WWE better than creative has in years.
