Wrestling fans, “Big Hungry” Tom Robinson here. Armbar Express has rolled in! Not a lot of time left, so here we go.
Pre-Show Match: Dean Ambrose (c) vs Rob Van Dam for the US Title
Background: RVD won a battle royal on this Monday’s RAW to earn a US Title shot against Shield Member Dean Ambrose on the Summerslam PRE-SHOW. Just… really? Pre-Show? These two extremely talented wrestlers aren’t on the main card but Natalya vs Brie Bella are? Sorry… but just no.
What Should Happen?: If anyone is gonna dethrone Ambrose as US Champion it should be a big name, and Rob Van Dam is one of the hottest things going for WWE right now. I’d like to see RVD win the title because it’d be a cool mark-out moment for me. However, Ambrose needs the victory more. If he knocked off RVD, that would be a big step forward. Dean Ambrose should win it.
What Will Happen?: Ambrose retains the title after some Shield interference. I think they may put The Shield on the PPV itself with RVD, Mark Henry and Big Show since they’ve been feuding. Like have Brad Maddox come out and change the match and put it on the main show or something. It’d just be weird to see Mark Henry and Big Show not featured on the main card.
Natalya vs Brie Bella
Background: This is basically a promotion for Total Divas. No real background towards it other than lame insults between the two and cat fights. Meow.
What Should Happen?: Natalya wins, if there’s a god.
What Will Happen?: Natalya gets screwed AGAIN, because being one of the few divas on the roster that can actually wrestle gets you nowhere. Brie Bella wins.
Kane vs Bray Wyatt in an Inferno Match (Don’t think that I’m gonna call it the “Ring Of Fire” Match. It’s an inferno match which can be won via pinfall or submission)
Background: Wyatt Family debuted. Beat Up Kane. Kane came back. Wyatt Family beat him up some more. Kane challenges Bray Wyatt to a “Ring Of Fire” Match. Bray accepts.
What Should Happen?: Bray Wyatt wins. It’d be so illogical of WWE to have Bray lose to Kane after SO much hype.
What Will Happen?: Bray Wyatt wins. Sorry Kane, but you’re gonna get burnt mate.
Cody Rhodes vs Damien Sandow
Background: Damien Sandow double-crossed his “best friend” Cody Rhodes during the World Title Money In The Bank Ladder Match to win the Money In The Bank briefcase. While Sandow defended himself pointing out that it was every man for himself, Cody was having none of it. He would constantly attack Damien and even threw his briefcase into the Gulf Of Mexico. Eventually, the two were booked for the grudge match on Summerslam. Oh and errr… the Money In The Bank briefcase is NOT on the line.
What Should Happen?: As much as I’d like to see Cody pick up the win because he has been long overdue one, Damien Sandow has to win to make himself seem a legitimate contender to the World Title when cashes in. Damien should win the big match at Summerslam, but a rematch should have Cody pick up a win to even the score.
What Will Happen?: I honestly don’t see Sandow winning this. I think with the rate he’s been going, Cody looks like he’s gonna win this match. Cody Rhodes wins.
Dolph Ziggler and Kaitlyn vs AJ Lee and Big E Langston
Background: AJ accidentally cost Ziggler the World Title at Money In The Bank. The next night, Ziggler dumped AJ believing that she was getting in the way of his success. The vengeful AJ set her bodyguard Big E Langston on Ziggler. The two would trade blows for a number of weeks. During MizTV on SmackDown! a week or two ago, Kaitlyn would get involved confronting her former best friend AJ. To settle the feuds, Summerslam Host The Miz booked a mixed tag team match with Kaitlyn and Ziggler battling AJ and Big E at Summerslam.
What Should Happen?: Ziggler and Kaitlyn win (Please don’t make them a couple WWE)
What Will Happen?: Ziggler and Kaitlyn win
Alberto Del Rio (c) vs Christian for the World Heavyweight Championship
Background: Christian returned to the WWE a couple months back, and has since been on a HUGE ROLL. Chrsitian’s desire for ONE MORE MATCH at the World Title drove him to fight harder then he’s ever fought before. Eventually he was entered into a triple threat number one contendership match for the World Title between himself, Rob Van Dam and Randy Orton. In an epic triple threat match, Christian got the win and earned the shot at World Champion Del Rio at Summerslam
What should happen?: Christian wins. 🙂
What will happen?: Del Rio wins. I don’t see him dropping the belt to Christian YET. But I do see another title reign in Christian’s future.
Brock Lesnar vs CM Punk
Background: CM Punk returned at Payback. Sacked Heyman as his manager. Brock Lesnar F5’d Punk. Heyman said he didn’t have anything to do with it. Turns out he was lying. Punk swore revenge. Fought the returning Lesnar. Match at Summerslam made. Fought him a couple more times after that.
What should happen?: CM Punk winning would be big. Lesnar losing would damage his credibility, but CM Punk has a lot more to lose considering he’s gonna be there post-Summerslam. Punk should win.
What will happen?: Lesnar wins. Sorry Punk fans. The Best will be beaten by the beast.
John Cena (c) vs Daniel Bryan for the WWE Championship with Triple H as Special Referee.
However, to put it briefly for you…
- Daniel Bryan Wins Via Pinfall
- No Cash-In
- Something big will happen involving the McMahons
There…. Predictions done. I’m Tom Robinson.
