World Wrestling Entertainment will present one of its most prestigious pay-per-view events August 17 when SummerSlam rolls into the Staples Center in Los Angeles.
The show, the annual summertime spectacular, ranks behind only WrestleMania in terms of importance and is traditionally one of the better shows of the year.
As announced on the July 21 episode of Raw, the event will be headlined by a huge WWE World Heavyweight Championship match between John Cena and new No. 1 contender Brock Lesnar.
The announcement already adds legitimacy to a card that is sure to be stacked thanks to a number of strong storylines that are unfolding on a weekly basis leading into the event.
With Roman Reigns dominating headlines, Dean Ambrose and Seth Rollins warring in arenas across the country and two programs featuring WWE Divas gaining prominence on Raw and SmackDown, there will be several feuds and stories for fans to sink their teeth into.
Preparations are underway for the huge extravaganza. Now, gear up for the show by taking a closer look at those stories and feuds that will captivate audiences on the road to SummerSlam.
