Report: SummerSlam match card filled out with top four matches

via <a href=""></a>

When World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE) has a big event to plan for, they're known for building a match card and working backwards. Essentially, the powers that be will know what they want to do at the big event first and figuring out how to get there comes later.

Two weeks ago, it was reported that the four top matches on the card were all set but it was a mystery what they were. Now, the latest edition of Figure Four Weekly has uncovered the information. The matches:

-- Triple H vs. Brock Lesnar
-- CM Punk vs. John Cena for the WWE championship
-- Sheamus vs. Alberto Del Rio vs. Dolph Ziggler for the World heavyweight championship
-- Chris Jericho vs. Daniel Bryan

The report comes with the usual disclaimer that plans can and usually do change, so don't take this to the bank. And after the latest episode of Monday Night Raw and reading the Smackdown spoilers, it certainly seems like WWE is working towards a line up that will look different than this.

Jericho vs. Bryan is the most intriguing to me, as they were both in separate issues with other guys. Jericho looked to be starting a program with Ziggler on Raw and Bryan might be going back to the well with an old foe on Smackdown. To learn who, click here to read spoilers.

Perhaps WWE doesn't believe Sheamus vs. Del Rio part deux can sell. I don't blame them.

That said, if this were the card, it looks pretty good to me. What about you, Cagesiders? Would you shell out cash to watch SummerSlam if it looked like this?
