WWE SummerSlam 2011: CM Punk/Cena Is Great, Where Are the Rest of the Matches?

Michael CastleContributor IIIAugust 10, 2011

I think that WWE has done a great job building up the CM Punk versus John Cena storyline, and a pretty decent job with the Sheamus' face turn, but where are the rest of the matches? 

It is five days until SummerSlam, and only four matches have been announced. We have both the WWE and world titles on the line at the pay-per-view, the women's title match, and a feud between Mark Henry and Sheamus. 

But where are the tag-team titles in all of this? What about the U.S. and Intercontinental titles? 

I haven't read Smackdown's spoilers for Friday, but it is their last show to try to put together more matches.  What can they put together two days before the PPV? And will anyone care? 

While I'm pumped for CM Punk and Cena and pretty excited for Sheamus and Mark Henry, WWE really hasn't done much for anyone else for this event. SummerSlam is the third largest PPV of the year, and it has had very little buildup. 

I just choose to ignore Randy Orton vs. Christian because that feud has been going on for over three months now. I assume there will be a Daniel Bryan match against Wade Barrett, and potentially R-Truth versus John Morrison, but they haven't received any buildup or hype.

Has anyone else seen the WWE completely ignore the mid-card like this? What are your thoughts on why? Are the writers simply this bad now? 

Where can I comment?
