The STAPLES Center is the setting yet again for the second-biggest event of the year. Tonight is when the biggest party of the summer has its silver anniversary edition. The 25th SummerSlam has familiar faces that are raising a lot of questions.

Can a long-time United States Champion fend off the advances of a Swiss strongman that has been close to unstoppable? Can a champion who thinks he is awesome prevent a former world champion from adding another accolade in his home state? Can a tag team on the top of their game prevent two newcomers, now without management, from making a big splash?

Two former world champions with histories of anger issues clash in a match in the shadow of Hollywood that has the makings of a Charlie Sheen sighting all over it.

The World Heavyweight Championship is on the line after all, as the reigning champion requested the match against a vindictive and unforgiving aristocrat. Meanwhile, a young star that likes to show off, with a future world title match in his hands, tries to prove that one of the greatest of this generation cannot win a big match anymore.

In the two main events, a giant man and a giant personality try to take the company's top prize from the man that has held it all year long. Also, an all-time great and current corporate figure in WWE tries to stop the natural disaster that is a former world champion in both pro wrestling and mixed martial arts.
