WWE SummerSlam Predictions

World Champion John Cena vs. Brock Lesnar

Mascara De Fuego: Brock. I think its obvious that this title change needs to happen, that being said I hope the WWE does not change their minds at the last minute and make Brock’s defeat of the Undertaker at WrestleMania mean nothing by changing the ending to this match. Sometimes we need to be predictable in wrestling.  This has to happen, this needs to happen. The WWE needs the WWE Title on someone who isn’t going to wrestle on every show. They need a big fight feel every time that title is on the line. It’s something they might want to continue to do when Brock loses the title at some point. This is a great way to push the Network, forcing people to go there to see this title fought for. Cena has needed to take a back seat from the main event for a long time. I’m sure they would contest that they “need” him but if that is the case then you’re not forcing yourself to invest in the other parts of the roster. Cena is the one guy who never leaves but I think he would benefit from doing so for a bit… maybe that would force the WWE to invest in someone else.

Great Puma: Brock Lesnar. Whether it’s Reigns, Bryan, or Ambrose, the man they have beat that’s going to make the greatest possible Wrestlemania moment next year is Brock Lesnar. Brock just way too much momentum for it to be wasted on another edition of LOLCENAWINS. I look forward to seeing Cena be on the offensive for less than 30 percent of the match. I also expect to see Cena bleed the hard way in a very brutal match.

Brie Bella vs. Stephanie McMahon

Great Puma: Brie Bella. The crowd misses Daniel Bryan so much that Mrs. Daniel Bryan winning at Summerslam will be the next best thing. A Brie Mode win is also a great excuse to do the YES chant. I expect Stephanie to dominate most of the match with Brie having her fiery comeback and the victory.

Mascara De Fuego: Stephanie. This match is probably not going to be good so I’m going in with LOW expectations. Maybe I will be surprised but I’m not holding my breath. It might be a good idea to make this a plunder match using weapons and such. It’s had a great build but its only been Stephanie carrying this feud on the mic.


Randy Orton vs. Roman Reigns

Mascara De Fuego: Reigns. This should be a good match but I’m ready for Reigns to move onto something else. I don’t know what that means for Orton but its time Reigns goes on and starts killing people until next years WrestleMania.

Great Puma: Roman Reigns. This is phase 1 of Reigns’ climb to the number one spot. The’re going to see where and how Reigns fits in the main event scene with this match. The problem is, will Batista come back to the WWE a conquering hero in the eyes of the WWE audience? What are they going to do with Daniel Bryan when he returns. A crowded main event scene means an exciting main event scene, and it will be tough to crown Reigns as the top guy at next year’s ‘Mania if the crowd gets behind someone else in the next 9 months.


Dean Ambrose vs. Seth Rollins (LumberJack Match)

Great Puma: Dean Ambrose. Hopefully they give this match more than 15 minutes since they didn’t deliver it on the last pay per view. I want this match to be so great in my mind, that I don’t think it will actually deliver at the pay per view. I’m really trying not to set my expectations higher than we can expect but it’s hard not to. I’m having Shield withdrawals and I truly miss their in-ring greatness. Also, my brain is actually telling me to pick Seth but I’m I going to go full mark here.

Mascara De Fuego: Rollins. Good news, this match is finally happening. Bad news, why a Lumberjack match?? What a waste. I’m hoping they can work around this crutch which this  match usually is of late. It just doesn’t add anything. They could have gone with a No DQ match or a Steel Cage, anything but this! Anyhow, if these two guys are actually having a match this time I’m hoping for match of the night.


Diva’s Champion AJ Lee vs. Paige

Mascara De Fuego: AJ. At least we have a defined heel and a defined face, lets see if that is enough to pull of a decent match.

Great Puma: AJ Lee. AJ Lee is still the true queen of the Divas and there’s no reason for her to pass the torch to Paige just yet.


Jack Swagger vs. Rusev (Flag Match)

Great Puma: Rusev. I don’t know what the WWE is going to do with Swagger after this defeat, but I think his resurgence ends here.

Mascara De Fuego: Rusev. Surprisingly one of the hottest feuds this summer. I don’t think anyone could have predicted how huge of a turn Swagger could have made. I don’t see him walking away from this match with the win but I do see this reaction to him lasting past this feud. Rusev needs to move onto something meaningful, maybe a feud with Sheamus with the US Title… Maybe that could help keep this Swagger feud going at a later date.


Bray Wyatt vs. Chris Jericho

Mascara De Fuego: Wyatt. This feud has been a bit underwhelming which is unfortunate. I am hoping this match will change that but these two didn’t seem to gel at the last ppv. I’m keeping my fingers crossed.

Great Puma: Bray Wyatt. Both Jericho and Bray have been exceptional during this feud.  If this isn’t the blow off, I’d probably pick Jericho but I think Bray needs a high profile win on his resume.


Intercontinental Champion The Miz vs. Dolph Ziggler 

Great Puma: Miz. Ziggler is the new platinum blonde version Kofi Kingston. They’re going to give their all to have a good match. I look forward to seeing these two go at it despite the lower position on the card.

Mascara De Fuego: Miz. All for not, Ziggler isn’t going anywhere in this company. I think he needs to move on and go someplace where he can work is ass off and actually move up the card. This new Miz character fits him but I’m not invested.
