SummerSlam 2012 Predictions by Matthew Towers
Hello there, and welcome to my first PPV Preview! This PPV for me is going to be brilliant. Just got a feeling that there will be great matches, anyways on to the card! I hope something big will happen, and I have a funny feeling that something will. But you’ll have to *cue Professor Green* Read All About it!
Pre-Show- Santino Marella (c) vs. Antonio Cesaro (with Aksana) Singles match for the WWE United States Championship
This match has my attention for two reasons. A) Antonio Cesaro and his awesome wrestling uppercut and B) Aksana’s arse, but the match itself has a potential to be a lot of fun I guess. I’m hoping for Aksana to strip in the ring but realistically I’m hoping for Cesaro to win the belt. They should make both the title and this pre-show idea important if they view it. Why not at one of the biggest PPV’s on the calendar? I wish it was a triple-threat to get Christian on the card but we digress. One of the people I look up to John Canton has a theory that is 80% right. Look weak on TV, win on PPV and sadly this is what is going happen here. With the WWE having a chance to make a star and the title meaningful again they will not because they think the title should be on a goofy fucking idiot. Oh well.
Winner and Still United States Champion- Santino Marella
The Miz (c) vs. Rey Mysteryio -Singles match for the WWE Intercontinental Championship
I’m not going to lie, I forgot this match was booked but I’m happy I remembered it was. It’s got potential and this is the showcase these two men need. Rey’s back after a year out and seems to have robbed a Taco Bell. Miz is back after filming a ‘Mega movie’ which will clearly sell about 20 DVD’s. But he looks better than ever, he’s leaner, has a new look with the beard and hair and has updated his wrestling Arsenal. He was DESPERATE for something after the worst 6 or 7 months a Wrestler that has been WWE Champion has ever had, Seriously, I felt for the guy as a human being. Rey has beaten Miz a couple of times on TV so again I expect this to be a Champion win. It will be a good match though and I hope that this match gives Miz the boost he needs to sky rocket to stardom.
Winner and Still Intercontinental Champion! - The Miz
Kane vs. Daniel Bryan- Singles Match
The only thing keeping me going in this match is Daniel Bryan and AJ’s interaction. Kane is just there to promote Anger Management. I think he’s great and can work with anyone but the match will focus on one man and that will be Daniel Bryan. He’s been great with the No stuff, because it’s got the fans chanting YES! So if/when he turns face the fans will instantly have a catchphrase and he’ll have YES! again, It’s simple but effective. I think Bryan wins with Sheen getting involved somehow, however why not promote him? If he’s not there then that’s just horrific but Sheen should be there as the whole point of the feud is that Sheen ripped Bryan and Bryan ‘snapped’. Bryan wins then gets KO’d by Sheen.
WINNING! I mean Winner- Daniel Bryan
R-Truth and Kofi Kingston (c) vs. The Primetime Players (Titus O'Neil and Darren Young) -Tag team match for the WWE Tag Team Championships
MILLIONS A DOLLARS, MILLIONS A DOLLARS, MILLIONS A DOLLARS’ I fucking love the Primetime Players, AW for me was just someone that shouted during the match, entertaining? Yes but they were entertaining before he came in. Tag Team division is looking good and I’m pleased with the progress, still need to add a couple of more teams however that I suggest in my 20 ideas for WWE to consider column but this is a start. I don’t mind Boom-Truth or R-Kofi or whatever the hell they call themselves but they need something better to do with them. Anyways I think PTP will win. Simply because they are built up so strong they are 10% of the other 20% that the 80% I talked about. Scott Steiner eat your heart out.
Winner and New Tag Team Champions!- Primetime Players
Dolph Ziggler (with Vickie Guerrero) vs. Chris Jericho Singles match
I think everyone that is watching this PPV will cum in their pants after the match is over with me included. The build has been great, with again its basic storytelling as Ziggler the young up and coming star against the Legend Jericho that feels he needs to prove a point. I think Jericho is gone for a few months with Fozzy after this match is over. Ziggler will likely to beat him to death with the briefcase after the match. After the event Ziggler should use the Malenko/Jericho storyline with Ziggler teasing Jericho for months without anyone hearing anything from him. Unlike Jericho teasing Malenko for months with no one hearing anything from him, so when Jericho comes back the ovation and moment would be huge. I’m going for a Ziggler win here.
Winner after a hell of a match- Dolph Ziggler
Sheamus (c) vs. Alberto Del Rio (with Ricardo Rodriguez) Singles match for the World Heavyweight Championship
This match again has got my attention. I was wondering why the fuck they have another match on PPV but the build makes sense. Again it's simple but effective. Why on earth would Sheamus steal a car? Oh yeh because he's a babyface and can murder Bill Gates and King would say "It was only Manslaughter!' Idiot. But Del Rio got hios own and it showed when he attacked Sheamus with 6 'cops'. Now what do i think will happen? Sheamus wins, and Barrett attacks him afterwards brutally to set up a mega-feud between the two. Then Ziggler comes out and cashes in. Win Win.
Winner and Still World Heavyweight Champion!- Sheamus
Brock Lesnar (with Paul Heyman) vs. Triple H Singles Match
Unlike some people i think the build has been great, it's built Lesnar up to be a bad-ass and thats what needed to happen. I think Lesnar needs to win, and i think he will. Simply because he needs it more and it would be brilliant for it to happen....and here is a bold prediction. Undertaker will come back tonight. Yep i think he will return after the match after Brock beat him to spook him abit. It needs to happen at WrestleMania 29 and it should. This would be the perfect way to build it up. It will be a great physical match with me hoping Lesnar kicks HHH all over the joint
Winner- Brock Lesnar
Big Show vs. John Cena vs. CM Punk (c) Triple Threat Match for the WWE Championship
Why is Big Show in this match? He cost The MITB winner his shot and now gets rewarded with a match. It's WTF booking. But still Cena and Punk are the reasons this match will be more than watchable. It's great that these two have instant connection with eachother. But Punk has been interesting as of late. Cena has been well Cena and Show has been idiotic. But still this match is going to be good and i expect a lot of stuff to happen during it. My prediction? Punk wins leading to a Cena vs. Punk feud for the Autumn/Winter.
Winner and STILL WWE Champion- CM Punk
Who do i wish was on the show? Christian and Randy Orton. I'd of loved Orton vs. Bryan but we might have to wait.
