Re: Being The Booker
Official Card for WWE Summer Slam
Date: 20th August 2006
Location: Arrowhead Pond, Anaheim, CA
Event Music: Red Hot Chilli Peppers, Dani California & Godsmack, The Enemy
WWE Championship Match; Tournament Final:
Rob Van Dam vs. Chris Jericho
RVD is not ready for the WWE Title just yet and I think that you have build Jericho as the top heel in the past few months. I can see Jericho winning the belt and then we see The Undertaker return after the match or the next Friday night on Smackdown, setting up Jericho vs. Undertaker for the WWE Title over the next few months.
World Heavyweight Championship Match:
Christian vs. Brock Lesnar
Christian has been the top guy on Raw for the past few months on Raw and I don't see that ending any time soon. Lesnar has been build as a monster in the preview but I don't see him winning the belt just yet, maybe in the next few months but SummerSlam will be Christian's night.
WWE Tag Team Championships Match:
Spirit Squad vs. Paul London & Brian Kendrick
Surprised to see London in a tag team match after you have spend such a long time building him as a future main eventer but I do love the team of London & Kendrick. I see them ending the SS's title reign and then having a nice long run with the belts, just like they did in 2005-2006 in real life.
WWE Intercontinental Championship Match; Fatal Four Way:
Finlay vs. Nick Dinsmore vs. Mr. Kennedy vs. Carlito
Kennedy is the King of the Ring and I think it is time for him to hold a championship. SummerSlam is a huge PPV and I see Kennedy pinning Finlay to become the new IC Champion.
WWE United States Championship Match:
Matt Hardy vs. Edge
I would love to see Lita make her debut on Smackdown and help Edge but I don't know if you will go that route. Matt Hardy will score an upset I think because he needs to keep the US belt for longer than the month he had it between WM22 and Judgment Day.
One on One:
Batista vs. Kurt Angle
Angle has not had the best year in 2006 but I can see him getting back to his winning ways by beating Batista in a great match. Angle could cheat to win but I see him pinning Batista after an Angle Slam. Batista won't tap out, imo.
No Holds Barred:
Shawn Michaels vs. Garrison Cade
No Horsemen means that this will be an actual match. Cade will come very close to winning but I see HBK hitting SCM for the win, with the Horsemen beating him down after the match or on Raw. This feud won't end here, imo.
Triple H vs. The Brotherhood
Triple H will go through everyone easily until Shelton comes out, which should be last. Triple H will battle Shelton in a great match but I see Vince coming out and either costing Triple H the match or beating down The Game to end the match in a DQ, with Vince getting the last laugh.
Hell in a Cell Match:
John Cena vs. Randy Orton
Orton has never beaten Cena and I thought when I first saw this match that Hell in a Cell would be no different. But then I thought that you wouldn't go the route that WWE does with Cena and have him win all the time. Orton needs this win much more than Cena and that's why I see him winning inside the Cell. This match should go at least 30 minutes and I can see Orton hitting an RKO onto a chair or through a table to finally put Cena away.
Should be an awesome PPV!!
