Rumored Matches For WWE SummerSlam 2013

On Monday’s RAW, it was confirmed that WWE Champion John Cena will defend against Daniel Bryan in the main event of next month’s SummerSlam pay-per-view. Here’s a look at the other top matches scheduled for the show:

  • CM Punk vs. Brock Lesnar
  • Dolph Ziggler vs. Big E Langston
  • Bray Wyatt vs. Kane
  • Damien Sandow vs. Cody Rhodes (MITB Briefcase On The Line)
  • Divas Match

As for The Shield, two rumored matches for them include Ambrose, Rollins & Reigns vs. Mark Henry & The Usos or Rollins & Reigns defending the tag titles against the Real Americans (Swagger & Cesaro).

    Shaping up to be really good feuds with good stories too. I would like to see The Shield vs Henry and The Usos rather than Reigns and Rollins Vs Swagger and Cesaro.

  • pwnez

    I’d actually rather see Rollins and Reigns vs Swagger and Cesaro, that could be a great match. It sucks that Ziggler is being bumped from the WHC title scene. No doubt that Lesnar vs CM Punk will be the match of the night.

    • Stew-ED!

      I agree. If it’s true about Henry, there will be hardly any build up for the match. And it seems like just another random team with Henry in the picture. It would just kill the match before you even watch it.

    • Kayne Corey

      I don’t think Ziggler is necessarily being bumped from the WHC scene. It all has a familiar feel to Punk in 2011. He had the whole Kevin Nash/Triple H thing then he strong arms his way into a match with Del Rio at Survivor Series for the WWE Title. Ziggler is going to have this Big E/AJ thing and I can see him strong arming his way into a Title match in the coming months.

      • Pozessed

        I would have preferred that when Big E was beating Del Rio etc on Raw whilst Ziggler was injured to then feud with Ziggler for the WHC.

  • Mr. Backlund

    There seems to be a theme here with undersized baby face underdogs (Bryan, Punk, Ziggler).

    • Straight

      ziggler undersized?.. it may be u guys getting too fat thinking he is undersized

      • Mr. Backlund

        Undersized compared to his opponent is all that means dude.

  • Kuntry2TheCore

    Bray Wyatt vs Kane. sounds Interesting. I might have to get this ppv

  • Hershey Maxwell Barber

    *Not bad*

  • Stew-ED!

    Good, solid storylines going into SummerSlam. WWE are stepping up their game. Lets just hope they keep it up for every PPV.

  • KenKen Beats

    Dolph vs Big E will be nice. Will Big E’s power and Dolph’s selling, im sure there’s gonna be some nasty looking spots. Lesnar vs Punk will be nice, but Lesnar better win. Cody should finally get his push as a face. Still not really impressed with Bray Wyatt besides mic skills, but i’ll give him a chance.

  • rashad jackson

    the shield vs. THE REAL AMERICANS!! YES!! make that happen…that will be a GREAT MATCH!!! YESS YESS YESSS!!!!

  • rashad jackson

    no no no…usos had their chance at the tag team titles i wud rather have the real americans fight for it!! u know how amazing that match wud be!! please make it happen WWE!

  • rashad jackson

    i think cody deserves the MITB more! i was starting to like him a few months back when he put on a good match with del-rio…and another good match with y2j!
    he has improved he deserves a title shot…i hope he wins but WWE did say a while back they wanted to push sandow so i doubt cody will win

  • Lindsey Tracy

    Well at least divas fans won’t have to complain about when the divas match is going to be going on. It’d be good to keep that as the pre-show at least until they work more of the roster (if that ever happens, ha) but seriously, the only match that sticks out to me is Cena vs Bryan.

  • JamieEvsxx

    you know what?…if this is the card then I’m quite looking forward to it…plus I’m hoping for another SummerSlam music video!…xD…

  • Jake Marshall

    Its Kane vs Bray Wyatt – INFERNO MATCH!!!

    I Would also like to see..
    Big E vs Ziggler – NO DQ
    Cody Rhodes vs Damian Sandow- MITB Briefcase
    Mark Henry vs Ryback
    Sawgger&Cesaro vs Reigns&Rollins
