There is a lot of anticipation for WWE Summer Slam this year. CM Punk has made his return, the state of the WWE Championship is unknown and Triple H is running the day to day operations.
With many WWE fans considering Money in the Bank to be one of the best pay-per-views, it will be a tough act for Summer Slam to follow.
But there is no reason that SummerSlam can’t be as good as, or better than, last Sunday’s MITB.
Zack Ryder is having a good week. He got his own T-shirt and a televised match on Monday Night Raw.
This could be the push that the Internet sensation has been looking for, and I think a lot of fans would love to see "Long Island Ice Z" get a match at SummerSlam this year.
Next Monday Night on Raw, there will be a Divas Battle Royal to determine the Divas Champion No. 1 contender. Eve Torres would be an interesting pick because of her friendship with Kelly Kelly.
If they break their bond and feud for the belt, it could be one of the more interesting Divas storylines in recent history.
Both these guys are supposed to be borderline psychopaths, hell-bent on destruction, not good sportsmen.
More than likely the match was setting up a feud between Mark Henry and Kane, but it would be more interesting to see Kane and Orton take another crack at a hardcore match, this time on a PPV.
Now that there are two WWE Championship belts, the “rematch clause” gets a little tricky.
John Cena got his rematch against Rey Mysterio to make up for the fact that he couldn’t get one against CM Punk. So does Mysterio get to use the rematch clause on Cena since he lost on Monday Night Raw?
Shouldn’t the Miz get another match since he lost to Mysterio in the first Championship match of the night?
Throw in Alex Riley, just to upset the Miz, and it makes the match more interesting and let them figure out who the sole No. 1 contender is.
Mark Henry is on the warpath. He is really angry for reasons most fans can’t remember. But since his storyline seems to be going nowhere, why not use his status as indestructible to restore Wade Barrett’s image?
Barrett has gone from headlining PPVs with John Cena, to losing Intercontinental Championship matches to Ezekiel Jackson.
He is too good in the ring and on the mic to have at such low-card status. A win over the world’s strongest man could help push him back up to the top again.
Kofi Kingston and Alberto Del Rio seem to be developing a feud. They have fought on the last two episodes of Monday Night Raw and play off each other pretty well.
To make the match more interesting put Del Rio’s Money in the Bank briefcase on the line.
He has brought it down to the ring twice but failed to pull the trigger both times. Maybe it is time to see if someone more capable should have the instant title shot.
R Truth had the main event rug pulled out from underneath him.
Prior to CM Punk’s shoot on the WWE, Truth’s heel turn was the biggest story in wrestling, and it looked like he was going to be an interesting adversary to John Cena.
Maybe the push was too soon, and maybe R Truth doesn’t deserve to headline just yet, but it would be interesting to see him contending for a title and not just being Monday Night Raw’s comic relief.
Most WWE fans are in agreement that the tag team division needs resurgence.
The Usos are a classic tag team. The look, the wrestling style. They have what it takes to bring tag team wrestling back to WWE.
Otunga and McGillicutty, on the other hand, just look like two guys that got stuck together.
Cody Rhodes has put on solid matches every SmackDown since Legacy broke up. And now the he has Ted DiBiase at his, side he is stronger than ever. He deserves a good push and a good feud.
Rhodes could help put Jackson over as a face, and likewise, Jackson would help push Rhodes' heel run.
Sheamus has had his hand in the Christian/Randy Orton saga since its inception. He hates them both of them and, often times appears, more powerful than both of them.
Christian has fought Randy Orton at the last three PPVs, so it would be nice to switch up SmackDown’s main event.
Plus, there is really no downside. If Sheamus wins it is an unexpected twist, if Christian wins it makes him look like a stronger, more legitimate champion.
There is really no way around this one. Both Cena and Punk believe they are the champ, and it needs to be settled.
Their match at Money in the Bank was incredible and will be tough to follow, but it left the fans wanting more.
If played right, this could be the beginning of a great rivalry. Cena finally has a worthy enemy, and fans who hate Cena finally have a heel worth cheering for.
