The 25th anniversary edition of SummerSlam commences for the fourth consecutive year at the Staples Center in Los Angeles, California on Sunday, August 19th.
And so without further delay, here is my projected card and my predictions on who will win.
12-DIVA BATTLE ROYAL (YOUTUBE PRE-SHOW MATCH)
PARTICIPANTS: Aksana, Alicia Fox, Beth Phoenix, Cameron, Eve Torres, Kaitlyn, Kelly Kelly, Layla, Natalya, Naomi, Rosa Mendes, & Tamina Snuka
With the Divas likely to be relegated to competing on WWE Superstars for the next couple of weeks, don't expect the Divas to appear on the main card. As for who I think will win, I'll go with Kelly Kelly which will set up the Kelly Kelly vs. Layla feud for the Divas Championship at Night of Champions.
RANDY ORTON, REY MYSTERIO, & CHRISTIAN VS. THE MIZ, WADE BARRETT, & DAMIEN SANDOW
This is a random six-man tag team match in an effort to get some big names on the card. With Cody Rhodes being an afterthought as of late, I replaced him with upstart Damien Sandow. Nevertheless, expect the babyface team to get the victory.
KOFI KINGSTON & R-TRUTH VS. THE PRIMETIME PLAYERS (WWE TAG TEAM CHAMPIONSHIP)
Before A.W.'s controversial remarks about Kobe Bryant, I had the Primetime Players winning. But since A.W.'s outburst on last week's RAW, I expect R-Boom to retain as a result.
CHRIS JERICHO VS. DOLPH ZIGGLER (CASE VS. CAREER MATCH)
Expect this match to be made official perhaps as soon as this week as I see Ziggler winning this match so that Jericho can tour with his band, Fozzy.
DANIEL BRYAN VS. KANE WITH CHARLIE SHEEN AS SPECIAL GUEST ENFORCER
Bryan's feud with Sheen began on RAW's 1000th episode when Sheen taunted Bryan following Bryan's failed nuptials with A.J. Since then, Kane has been stalking Bryan and expect this match to take place with the Big Red Monster extending Bryan's woes.
SHEAMUS VS. ALBERTO DEL RIO (WORLD HEAVYWEIGHT CHAMPIONSHIP)
Look for Sheamus to retain as I see Del Rio's relationship with his personal ring announcer Ricardo Rodriguez go up in flames.
CM PUNK VS. JOHN CENA VS. BIG SHOW (TRIPLE THREAT MATCH FOR THE WWE CHAMPIONSHIP)
I expect CM Punk's reign to end at SummerSlam as Cena will overcome both Punk and the Big Show to emerge victorious. But expect the Cena-Punk feud to continue until at least the Survivor Series.
TRIPLE H VS. BROCK LESNAR (NO HOLDS BARRED MATCH)
Expect a stipulation to be announced perhaps as soon as this week. While Paul Heyman and perhaps John Laurinaitis will try to help Lesnar win, Triple H's presistance will prove too much for Lesnar to overcome.
In addition, there will also be SummerSlam Axxess matches. I expect the matches to be Santino Marella & Sin Cara vs. Cody Rhodes & Antonio Cesaro and Ryback vs. Jinder Mahal.
