Del Rio's team may drop the 10 man tag match, but will he leave SummerSlam the WWE Champion?
Kofi Kingston, John Morrison, Evan Bourne, and the Uso’s vs. Alberto Del Rio, R-Truth, Jack Swagger, Michael McGillicutty, and David Otunga
The WWE is notorious for having one big tag match on their marquee shows to enable them to showcase a larger number of their talents. WWE SummerSlam 2011 will be no different. This is the perfect match to incorporate multiple feuds that have been going on into one match, while getting ten guys a payday on this shows.
With there being a very good chance Alberto Del Rio may cash in his Money in the Bank briefcase Sunday Night, I think he will be protected and held out of a singles match. Being in a five-on-five will allow him to stay out of the action most of the match, while still be perceived as “fresh” if he attempted to cash in on whoever walks away from the Main Event as the WWE Champion.
R-Truth dominated Morrison on Monday Night and the Guru of Greatness appears to have worked himself into the doghouse. Meanwhile, Evan Bourne has been getting the best of Jack Swagger lately, and the Uso’s are primed to take the straps off of the old New Nexus.
My prediction is that the face team goes over in a first pin-fall matchup. Swagger or David Otunga would be the one to take the pin for their team by Kofi Kingston, allowing R-Truth and Del Rio to be protected.
Winners: Kofi Kingston, John Morrison, Evan Bourne, and the Uso’s
