SummerSlam seems to be the pay-per-view where we get a few surprises and twists, do you think there's any chance we'll see one this year? Perhaps a swerve could see Seth Rollins cash in Money in the Bank, or a surprise appearance from someone like Sting?
PS. I just hope the 'shock' isn't Cena retaining the WWE Championship against Brock Lesnar.
I hope not. I want a clean ending (with Lesnar winning). All this Cena vs Lesnar promos of being the "Biggest fight of the Summer", "The ultimate Battle", blah, blah, blah.... to have a "shocking" ending...No please, it would be a letdown.
Summerslam and Wrestlemania are the WWE's two biggest events of the year.
Wrestlemania is an opportunity for them to promote their product to their biggest audience and show them that the fans truly appreciate their product. This means minimal twists and a proper babyface victory to close the show.
Summerslam is like Wrestlemania, except it's made for wrestling fans. You'll usually get that good twist ending and some great matches out of it.
