As is the case with WrestleMania, there isn’t a spot for every WWE Superstar on the main card at SummerSlam.
Just about every year, we see some big names left off of some big PPVs. A few are relegated to the pre-show, while others find themselves off the card altogether.
The 2013 SummerSlam PPV is beginning to take shape, and while it will be headlined by many major stars, plenty of talented midcarders and even some main eventers will find themselves without spots on the show.
That’s not a situation any WWE Superstar wants to find himself in, and it’s one many aren’t accustomed to. But it’s going to happen, nonetheless.
Let’s take a look at which well-known WWE Superstars could be watching SummerSlam from backstage or at home.
