#SummerSlam Final Card & Predictions

Preshow: United States Championship Match – Santino Marella (c) vs. Antonio Cesaro

I can’t see Cesaro going over yet. He gets little to no reaction from the live audience, regardless of the IWC or people who watched him in ROH. If it wasn’t for Aksana, he wouldn’t even be on TV.
Winner: Santino Marella 

WWE Tag Team Championship Match – Kofi Kingston & R-Truth (c) vs. The Prime Time Players

 

The tag division is a strange place. Primo and Epico were picking up victories over PTP left and right, and then they just got left behind. Now with AW being released, I can’t see PTP being able to hold the titles on their own right now.
Winners: Kofi Kingston & R-Truth 

Intercontinental Championship Match – The Miz vs. Rey Mysterio

Mysterio has floundered since coming back from injury and suspension. The Miz came back from filming The Marine 3 and was given the IC title right away. Regardless of Mysterio’s win over The Miz to get this title opportunity, I don’t think the powers that be want him getting a push right now.
Winner: The Miz 

Kane vs. Daniel Bryan

Easy one to choose. Kane doesn’t need to win. However, they want to keep Bryan looking strong.
Winner: Daniel Bryan 

Chris Jericho vs. Dolph Ziggler

Jericho is leaving soon and Ziggler is going to cash in the briefcase and get a WHC-feud. However, I think they are going to give Jericho a ‘thank you’ for him doing the job to anyone and everyone this run, and let him have someplace to go when he comes back next time – directly into a feud with Ziggler.

Winner: Chris Jericho

WWE Championship Triple Threat Match – CM Punk (c) vs. John Cena vs. Big Show

Big Show will not win. He doesn’t even have to be in this match. Waste of time. With Punk already attacking The Rock and feuding with him on Twitter, I find it hard to see him losing the belt between now and Royal Rumble.
Winner: CM Punk 

World Heavyweight Championship Match – Sheamus (c) vs. Alberto Del Rio

Sheamus demanded to have this match put back on. That doesn’t bode well for him winning it. I see some sort of dirty finish with Del Rio winning the title. Then Sheamus destroys Del Rio after the bell, and Ziggler comes down to cash in Money in the Bank. This might even happen BEFORE Ziggler vs Jericho.
Winner and new World Heavyweight Champion: Alberto Del Rio 

Triple H vs. Brock Lesnar

The WWE has made Lesnar look pretty bad. While he dominated Cena before losing, since then he’s looked downright horrible. He takes this win to push him into whoever he feuds with next.
Winner: Brock Lesnar
