On August 17, World Wrestling Entertainment will present its annual SummerSlam event. The card for this year's show is stacked with matches that have the potential to not only steal the show but also rank as some of the best in the long and illustrious history of the summertime spectacular.
Great matches are nothing new for WWE's second-most prestigious event. Over the last five years, SummerSlam has been home to some outstanding matches that have elevated the talent involved, legitimized championships and served as Match of the Year candidates.
CM Punk, John Cena, Christian, Chris Jericho and Dolph Ziggler are among the Superstars who have brought the goods on one of wrestling's biggest stages, thrilling fans in Los Angeles' Staples Center year after year.
Three of those men will have the opportunity to add to their SummerSlam legacies when they roll into the City of Angels for the 2014 incarnation of the event.
Whether they do or not is a question that will be answered when WWE presents its latest pay-per-view extravaganza on the WWE Network.
In anticipation of the huge event, and in celebration of the fine work of some of sports entertainment's finest performers, relive the 10 best matches from recent SummerSlam history!
