WWE Summerslam: Which Match Will Main Event?

Adam WrightSenior Analyst IAugust 16, 2008

WWE's Summerslam is billed as one of the biggest Pay Per Views of the year. Just to be apart of this event is an honour for any WWE Superstar, but to main event Summerslam, it means that much more!

With that said, who will have the honour to main event this year?

This year's Summerslam has booked two World Title matches, but I doubt either will be picked as the main event.

The WWE Title match-up between Triple H vs. The Great Khali is painfully obvious the outcome. No to mention the quality of the match. How good of a match can we expect from The Great Khali?  How the hell will Triple H manage to hit his signature "Pedigree" on Khali?  Either way, Triple H walks out still WWE Champion.

The World Title match will feature CM Punk defending his Title against J.B.L. This match is much less predictable.  Will they keep the Title on CM Punk? Or will "The Wrestling God" reign supreme? But unfortunately, this match is not a "main event" match-up either. Not to mention the possible interference that will end the match. I'm looking at you Kane!

So, what will main event Summerslam?

There's two obvious choices!

The first is the blockbuster match-up of two of the biggest stars of the company today. For the first time ever, John Cena will face Batista. This match is so hard to predict, it could go either way. I'm HOPING for a Batista victory (because I'm over the age of 15).  

This match is one of the most awaited in recent history, but the build-up to it has been way to quick. I can see this feud continuing, and I don't think it will main event Summerslam.

That leaves one match! One possibility that should Main Event Summmerslam. Two of the biggest stars in the last decade in a feud in one of the hottest feuds of the past year. Of course I'm talking about Edge vs. The Undertaker in a Hell in a Cell match.

This match-up needs no additional hype. You have The Undertaker, a legend of the ring, against Edge, one of the most extreme superstars, in a Hell in a Cell! We've seen Edge take serious bumps in "Table, Ladders and Chairs" matches, but he has never stepped into The Undertaker's playground, Hell in a Cell.

Smackdown General Manager Vickie Guerrero ordered this match up to make Edge pay for his sins. She "reinstated" The Undertaker to punish him in his match. But as we saw these past weeks, who is punishing who?

After Mick Foley woke up the inner Edge, we've seen a part of Edge that we've never seen before. Borderline psychotic. He has shown us these past weeks how brilliant he is with the  mic, and why I call him the best heel in the business.

Edge certainly is ready for The Undertaker's return. No matter the result of the match, it will no doubt be a match for the books.

This could very well be the best Hell in a Cell match EVER! And that is why it should Main Event Summerslam.
