It’s almost time!! One of the biggest PPV events besides Wrestlemania! SUMMERSLAM!! This Sunday August 19th at 8pm EST SummerSlam will be live on pay per view to the millions of WWE fans!
As usual, I’m stoked for this pay per view, SummerSlam has always been one of my favorites and this year doesn’t look to disappoint. There’s a few different matches that I’m looking forward to this year. The first match isn’t even on the SummerSlam card, it’s one of the ‘pre-show’ matches that you’ll see Antonio Cesaro vs. Santino Marella. Santino has always been one of my favorites, but at this point, there’s just no real reason to keep an active title, on him, so this match vs. Cesar should be pretty good, it’s a shame that it’s not on the main card. I think Cesaro could do a lot carrying the US strap and have some real good feuds.
I’m also looking forward to the match between WWE Champion CM Punk, The Big Show and John Cena the only thing that really intrigues me about the match is the recent change in attitude of CM Punk. It’s almost a throw back to the old CM Punk and it’s more of his true character. CM Punk is so good at treading that line between good guys bad guy, that line between heels and face that the CM Punk that draws me in. Plus the mini feud with The Rock that’s brewing is a good move. I’d like to see CM Punk find a way to squeak out a win and with this “I’ll do anything to stay WWE champ because I’m the best I’m the world” attitude I think he can.
The match I’m most looking forward is the match between Dolph Ziggler and Chris Jericho. This match reminds me so much of the series of matches between Shawn Michaels and Chris Jericho and it almost feels like a passing of the guard because Dolph Ziggler is the up and coming young superstar who easily will be a champion. Jericho is the older, wiser one but still has it and isn’t the out of touch superstar the same way Shawn Michaels was when Chris Jericho was on the upswing. So for me it’s almost like reliving history a little but this time with a new flavor. Both of those guys are incredible workers in the ring, both those guys put on a hell of a match no matter who’s in the ring with them. So much for me I think that match will absolutely steal the show because I don’t see how you could have such good performers in a match together and not be absolute fireworks!
As you can tell, I’m pretty excited, so to share my excitement and the rest of the #WWEMoms excitement for SummerSlam, we’re having a Twitter Party!!
