Possible Swerves You Can’t Afford to Miss

One Wild Main Event

John Cena will defend his WWE Championship against Daniel Bryan, but for those fans who think this will feature a clean ending, that couldn’t be farther from the truth.

With Triple H injecting himself into the bout as the special-guest referee, Vince McMahon going on the record to claim he doesn’t want either star to be champion and Randy Orton looming with the briefcase, this is going to be a convoluted ending.

Bryan’s momentum is too great for the WWE to not capitalize on it in some form or fashion. With Cena reportedly needing surgery, per F4WOnline (via Wrestling Inc.), giving the challenger the victory, only to have Orton cash in, would catapult Bryan into an elite level of Superstars.

There are so many conceivable outcomes that hardcore and casual wrestling fans alike will be hanging on every move in this monumental match. The landscape of the WWE is about to shift dramatically.


Paul Heyman Calling in Backup

The battle between CM Punk and Brock Lesnar has swerve written all over it. With Lesnar’s schedule with the WWE not calling for him to work the next night on Raw, per F4WOnline (via SE Scoops), Paul Heyman could call on the newest Heyman guy to do his bidding during the match.

Whether that’s Curtis Axel, Rob Van Dam or someone else, this is the perfect storyline.

While having Punk win clean over Lesnar would be a huge rub for the former WWE champion, giving Lesnar the win to boost his credibility while building a different feud with another Heyman guy would be a genius ending to this match.

Not only would Punk be occupied with another superstar while Lesnar is put on the shelf, but the WWE could also rekindle this feud down the line to give Punk an eventual victory over the beast.

As much as RVD’s heel turn would be flat-out amazing, Axel is still the favorite to get involved.


Damien Sandow Cashes In

There is no question that Alberto Del Rio has grown stale as the World Heavyweight Champion, but Christian’s face character has been anything but impressive. With both men not drawing much interest to the WHC scene, Sunday would be the perfect time for Damien Sandow to cash in his Money in the Bank briefcase.

After letting Cody Rhodes beat Sandow earlier in the night, the WWE Universe would forget about the briefcase holder until he hit the ring at the conclusion of the match. Whether Del Rio or Christian wins the bout, it should be Sandow who walks out of Los Angeles with the belt.

Rhodes thwarted Sandow’s previous attempt to cash in. While he could easily do the same at SummerSlam, watching Cody realize that if Sandow wins the world title, he would get a title shot because of his clean win over the new champion would be an amazing swerve.
