John Cena, Brock Lesnar Returning to WWE 'Monday Night Raw'
20 August, 2017, 03:54 | Author: Benny Bass
So as wrestling fans get ready for this Sunday's SummerSlam, one has to wonder: what version of the WWE are we going to get?
Another potential spoiler for the result of the SummerSlam main event is the tweet made by the Barclays Center account on August 16 that has since been deleted, per PW Mania.
Depending on what route they go, a Jericho-Miz rivalry over the Intercontinental Championship would be mic work gold, or a Jericho-Balor feud could provide some scintillating matches if heel Y2J is back in the mix.
Let's dive into some of the numbers behind the featured matches on this year's card.
-Brock Lesnar vs. BraunStrowman vs. Samoa Joe vs. We've seen it before, where everyone expects someone to cash in, so on the title change itself, there isn't as much emotion from the crowd because they're instead watching the aisle to see who runs down. WWE has now done this twice with Cena (Cena-Nakamura and Cena-Mahal).
-Jinder Mahal vs. Shinsuke Nakamura for the WWE Championship. In an instant, Corbin's title shot - and the months of storytelling that could come with it - evaporated.
-AJ Styles vs. Kevin Owens for the U.S. Championship with Shane McMahon as special referee. For those who won't be able to watch through the options stated, there may be some fans who will most likely live-blog the event.
John Cena vs. Baron Corbin: Corbin's seeming rise to the stop was stunted by his failed cash-in of his Money in the Bank contract, but a match versus the iconic Cena could provide a better lift anyway. Not only that, but it appeared that Corbin kicked out before the three count and the referee took a long, long time before ringing the bell to start the match. Two weeks ago, Rusev attacked Orton as SmackDown came to a close, and just the other day, Orton landed a perfectly timed RKO on his Bulgarian opponent, and yes, it was out of nowhere. Either way, given both teams' experience with tag team wrestling, this should be fun. SummerSlam will be a four-hour show with a two-hour Kickoff Show. Bryan won, which helped usher in this new era of WWE where indie wrestlers are treated as equals to the more establishment-esque WWE performers, and Cena stayed out of the title scene until injuries forced him back into it. However, Cesaro has not won at SummerSlam since that title win (0-3).
The most unpredictable of the matches taking place Sunday, each competitor has a fair chance at taking home Raw's top prize. It was originally a singles match between Jordan and The Miz before Raw general manager Kurt Angle turned it into a six-man tag after the Miztourage got involved.
It's been reported that WWE has soured on Corbin - hence why his cash in went so wrong. But then you look at events like Fastlane, Money In The Bank, and last month's Battleground, and suddenly you're standing there scratching your head.
The choice to move Strowman over comes with the obvious caveat that he not be Universal Champion after SummerSlam.
