Infinite destruction and total darkness.
That’s how the Perfect Storm would end according to Twista. In SummerSlam 2012, I doubt the WWE’s plot literally heads that route. But it’s sure to be a show that features plenty of wrestlers getting jacked up so hard that their lights go out.

Brock Lesnar vs. Triple H will headline this summer’s PPV event.
While the Triple Threat Match of the evening will feature a rivalry between fighters that aren’t strangers in the ring, the same can’t be said for Lesnar and H.
The two professional wrestling legends have yet to officially face off against one another. The outcome of their match will be remembered forever—especially if the WWE doesn’t make a habit out of throwing them at each other.
But on to that other match.
Big Show and John Cena will go toe-to-toe with CM Punk for the WWE Championship. But as you can imagine by Show and Cena’s recent history, their focus won’t be entirely on Punk’s belt.
In the every-man-for-himself format, Show and Cena will attempt to settle (or ignite even further) their deep-seated rivalry that began this past May. With their motives not being aimed exclusively at taking Punk out, expect him to take advantage.
Other championship matches include The Miz vs. Rey Mysterio with the Intercontinental title on the line, R-Truth and Kofi Kingston vs. Titus O’Neil and Darren Young for the Tag Team title and Sheamus vs. Alberto Del Rio for the World Heavyweight Championship.
Kane and Daniel Bryan along with Dolph Ziggler and Chris Jericho will also compete in singles matches.
While it’s sure to be an entertaining evening all around (it had better be, it’s pay-per-view), Lesnar, Triple H, Punk, Cena and Show’s performances will make or break the night.
