Up to now I'm not looking forward to this, though having a few TWOites down should at least make it bearable.

How could you not be looking forward to HHH vs Orton? I've been waiting to see this match for years now.

No real surprise here, but Randy Orton Vs. John Cena for the WWE Title has been announced for SummerSlam. I was hoping that we would see something different like Orton defending against Mark Henry, but I should know better by now.

Oh f*ck off WWE. Same old shit, different PPV, and it's really starting to annoy me.

As much as I hate the very limited RAW main event scene, the only thing I can hope for now is Cena to win, so I get to see Cena Vs Batista II eventually down the line (Survivor Series possibly), especially if WWE insist on having the same 4 people out of the present rosta main eventing all the damn time.

Hopefully the SmackDown and ECW main events will feature something a bit fresher. Hardy Vs Morrison Vs Punk in a Triple Threat, and Christian Vs Kozlov would be nice!

Hey, I would rather see Orton Vs. Henry than Orton Vs. Cena or Orton Vs. Triple H for the 100th time.

I bet this PPV is built around the return of HBK and DX, instead of a great match. Orton and Cena was done at Summerslam a few years and was shit then, I can't see it being much better.

Summerslam has been 'just another PPV' for a while now, there was a time when it was truely the 2nd biggest PPV of the year.

The way that the current angle is going on RAW, I have to go with Cena winning the title at SummerSlam. I don't want him to, but odds are, he will. I see Triple H keeping Legacy from helping Orton at the event and the way that Orton has been booked (as a joke who can not survive by himself) lead me to believe that. I imagine that there will probably do the stipulation where Orton loses the title by DQ or Count-Out.

As far as the Unified Tag Team Championship match, I see Show & Jericho retaining. Maybe it's just me, but I just can not see Cryme Tyme going over Show & Jericho and making it believable. Now if Cryme Tyme has some sort of "accomplice", then I could see them stealing the titles, working with their gimmick. It's not too far-fetched to think that Cryme Tyme could convince someone like The Great Khali help them deal with Big Show. I expect and hope that the Kane/Khali rivalry does not lead to a match at SummerSlam. Throw them in a Steel Cage on SmackDown or Superstars and declare the feud over.
