Somebody will be turning heel at SummerSlam

Who will it be?
John Cena will be defending his WWE Championship against Daniel Bryan at SummerSlam on Sunday, August 18th and my gut feeling (along with pretty much several members of the IWC) tells me that somebody will be turning heel after the match is over and so, let's dissect the likelihood of who will be entering the dark side after "The Biggest Party of the Summer" comes to a close:
Let's face it: John Cena will never turn heel at this time. There are several reasons for this: he's WWE's number one draw, he sells merchandise, he's considered to be the favorite Superstar among members of the WWE Universe, and last, but certainly not the least, he's one of the most-requested celebrities when it comes to granting wishes for the Make-A-Wish Foundation.
As much as the IWC wants it, the chance of Cena turning heel is like the Kentucky Wildcats winning the SEC Championship this year (in football, that is).
It has been rumored that The Apex Predator may be turning heel as this report indicates http://www.ewrestlingnews.com/news/1...ored-heel-turn, the chances of Orton reverting back to his villainous ways is highly unlikely. SmackDown needs Orton to be the face of its show just like Cena is to RAW, not to mention Sheamus' injury which means a lack of a number two babyface on the blue brand.
The Yes Man in my opinion is the leading candidate to turn heel for several reasons: he is not yet on the level when it comes to main event babyfaces and with several heels-turned-babyfaces (Cody Rhodes, Dolph Ziggler, and The Miz), the WWE needs a top-notch heel that could seriously challenge for a WWE Championship (Brock Lesnar is expected to take some time off until after the Elimination Chamber next year). Bryan would be the villain that could side with Vince McMahon in the McMahon Family power struggle when all is said and done.
