WWE SummerSlam 2011: Live Results, Recap, Albert Del Rio Steals CM Punk's Title

Adam HirshfieldFeatured ColumnistAugust 13, 2011

Time is ticking down to one of the top WWE pay-per view events of the year: SummerSlam 2011 at the Staples Center in Los Angeles, the so-called “Biggest Event of the Summer.”

Yes, there are several huge matches already in the works—your CM Punk vs. John Cena, your Christian vs. Randy Orton, your Kelly Kelly defending her pink Divas belt against Beth Phoenix—but a big part of the intrigue actually surrounds the matches that haven’t yet been announced.

As of Saturday, according to WWE.com, there are only four matches—or five, according to other Internet rumors—that have been officially announced.

Why the dearth of pre-announced matchups?

Do they honestly not know who’s going to be swapping sweat at the Staples Center? Or could it be that new WWE CEO Triple H and his cronies are trying to create that much more buzz and excitement about the big event?

It has to be the latter, right?

Because how could the story line between new Intercontinental champion Cody Rhodes and Ezekiel Jackson just be left out? How could hated-by-everyone Alberto Del Rio be left off the card? What’s going on with the U.S. Championship?

And what about controversial superstars Rey Mysterio and The Miz?

Whatever the case, we’ll be keeping track of all of the matches right here, both as they’re announced and when the bell rings on Sunday night.
