Of all the suggested scenarios, I would count on this one being the most likely.
Late last year, I envisioned Ryback battling Big Show for the World Heavyweight Championship at WrestleMania 29. I predicted Show would retain his title on the road to WrestleMania while Ryback would win the 2013 Royal Rumble, jump to SmackDown and chase the prestigious prize.
Of course, none of that ended up coming to fruition, but Ryback and Big Show still do have a bit of history together. Ryback was originally supposed to take on The Shield in six-man tag team action alongside Randy Orton and Sheamus at 'Mania, but he was soon replaced by Big Show instead.
At The Show of Shows, Show ultimately turned on his teammates and cost them the victory. Later that night, Ryback was unsuccessful in defeating Mark Henry in singles action.
It's safe to say that both Big Show and Ryback have not had the best 2013 so far. However, that could all change if they were to feud going into SummerSlam.
After a mediocre heel turn and lackluster feuds with John Cena and Chris Jericho, Ryback is currently in search of someone to work with going forward. Show, on the other hand, doesn't have a clear opponent for SummerSlam, and The Human Wrecking Ball would be the perfect opponent for him.
Regardless of whether Ryback will be able to lift Show on his shoulders for the Shell Shocked or not, Ryback would still benefit from scoring a victory over The World's Largest Athlete. Ryback won his first pay-per-view match in nearly a year last Sunday at Money in the Bank, so he is in desperate need of a win at the biggest blockbuster of the summer.
There aren't many fresh feuds for Big Show left, but a rivalry with Ryback is surely one I would love to see before he eventually retires from active competition. That being said, what better place for this clash of the titans to go down than at this year's SummerSlam?
