WWE SummerSlam 2012 Live Stream: Watch the Free U.S. Championship Bout

Mike Hoag@MikeHoagJrCorrespondent IIAugust 18, 2012

The WWE is live-streaming the United States Championship bout between champion Santino Marella and challenger Antonio Cesaro. The fight will be a part of their pre-show from their YouTube channel beginning at 7:30 p.m. ET on Sunday night.

SummerSlam 2012’s pre-show is scheduled to include the U.S. Championship bout in its entirety, interviews, commentary and behind-the-scenes coverage. If you’re looking for WWE action on Sunday night, the pre-show is sure to satisfy your needs.

It’s the next best thing to ponying up the money for the pay-per-view itself.

They’ll also be streaming SummerSlam 2012 from the WWE website for a small fee of $44.95.

 

Where: Staples Center, Los Angeles

When: Sunday, Aug. 19 at 8 p.m. ET (pre-show at 7:30 p.m. ET)

Watch: PPV

The biggest draw of this free live stream has to be the United States Championship bout. Cesaro is a newcomer, but he has shown some promise on SmackDown—enough to be featured in this match. Although, the match itself isn’t very noteworthy, as it is merely a teaser for fans and those not purchasing SummerSlam.

With that being the case, it would make a lot of sense for Cesaro to come away with the title in this one. For one thing, it will excite the masses as SummerSlam begins, and it will also provide a bump for the relevancy of the U.S. title.

Cesaro’s prominence on SmackDown would give the title a newfound importance and possibly revitalize the division—at least enough to move it onto a main card and off of the free pre-show realm.
