WWE SummerSlam Preview

WWE SummerSlam emanates from Los Angeles, CA as a handful of blockbuster matches create the midsummer version of WrestleMania.  

There's no predicting WWE pay-per-views unless you're Dolphin1925. But stages like this call for predictions only the bold can make.

Daniel Bryan's underdog story will take him all the way to the main event of SummerSlam. There's an outside chance that Daniel Bryan will win his first WWE Championship, but John Cena's current reign of terror seems far from over. Cena should be a safe bet to go over. 

Randy Orton's Money in the Bank briefcase has become a fixture in the WWE title picture. The possibility of Orton cashing in his Money in the Bank briefcase has been heavily teased on TV. In all likelihood, it is a red herring designed to jump pay-per-view sales. If Orton actually cashes in his briefcase, it would be one of the most anti-climactic Money in the Bank moments in history.  

The last time we saw Ricardo Rodriguez he was brutally beaten by Alberto Del Rio. Don't be surprised if he resurfaces at SummerSlam and helps Del Rio. The lackey-wrestler relationship between the two would welcome such loyalty, and WWE would be wise to keep this duo together as Del Rio becomes one-dimensional without Rodriguez.
