The "Biggest Party of the Summer" hits Los Angeles for the fifth straight year as SummerSlam commences on Sunday, August 18th at the Staples Center.
And so, what should be the perfect SummerSlam card? Here's what I think should happen:
KOFI KINGSTON VS. WADE BARRETT
This seems like a possible feud as I expect Kingston to lose the United States Championship to Dean Ambrose at Extreme Rules this Sunday while I see Barrett retain against The Miz perhaps at Payback on Sunday, June 16th.
IRON MAN MATCH FOR THE WWE CHAMPIONSHIP
JOHN CENA VS. CM PUNK
The Voice of the Voiceless is expected to return sometime in June as I look for Punk to reignite his feud against Cena and what better match than an Iron Man match where the Superstar with the most pins in 60 minutes is declared the winner!
UNDERTAKER & KANE VS. THE SHIELD
WWE's love affair with part-timers returns at SummerSlam when it is expected that The Undertaker will reteam with his tag team partner Kane to take on The Shield in a 3-on-2 handicap match.
WORLD HEAVYWEIGHT CHAMPIONSHIP
RANDY ORTON VS. BIG SHOW
I expect Orton to become the new World Heavyweight Champion perhaps as early as Payback when he is expected to defeat Dolph Ziggler. This will set up a potential match against one of Vince McMahon's favorites, The Big Show!
TWELVE-MAN TAG TEAM ELIMINATION MATCH TO DETERMINE THE SMACKDOWN GM
TEAM BOOKER T (SHEAMUS, ALBERTO DEL RIO, THE MIZ, SIN CARA, THE GREAT KHALI, & CHRIS JERICHO) VS. TEAM TEDDY (MARK HENRY, DOLPH ZIGGLER, DANIEL BRYAN, RYBACK, DAMIEN SANDOW, & FANDANGO)
This feud between Booker T and Teddy Long will happen when Booker T returns from injury later this month which will culminate with this 12-man tag team match with the winning team's captain becoming the GM of SmackDown.
