After 'Night of Champions', who will be WWE Champion?
In the last part of our monthly Top 10 countdown we revealed families number four and three so here we showcase the number two family, The Von Erichs. There was so much to say about them that we had to give them there own edition, but caution readers that some sensitive subject matter is discussed.
The wrestling business is one that involves many families over the years, and we look more in depth at the those we believe are part of the Top 10 here with numbers four and three. We have decided the number two wrestling family needed it's own spotlight as well for later this week. In case you missed part two, please go back to read it here, and it includes a link back to part one.
Yesterday we previewed the under card matches for WWE's biggest even of the season as 'SummerSlam' happens on Sunday night. Here we look at the main event for the WWE World Heavyweight Championship and the remaining upper card matches. In case you missed part one you may read it here.
Two years ago at 'Extreme Rules' John Cena was able to overcome a pretty bad beat down by Brock Lesnar and win just after his 'WrestleMania' loss to The Rock. Almost everyone thinks that Brock Lesnar will become the new champion here pretty easily to eventually set-up something for when Daniel Bryan returns. I am going against all of that and say that Cena retains, barely.
Mark Eddinger (Motorsports101):
To make Brock Lesnar's shocking win over The Undertaker at 'WrestleMania' feel more legit having Brock Lesnar win the WWE World Heavyweight Championship would sure do the trick. The question is whether the WWE will give the title to someone who does not wrestle every week. If John Cena loses this could finally be that moment that throws Cena into a heel role. Quite frankly I do not know what will happen. But if I was a writer for WWE I would have Lesnar win, Cena turn heel and CM Punk surprisingly return to feud with Brock and take the championship. We can all wish right?
Well its now time for the biggest event of the summer in WWE as the present there latest special event 'SummerSlam' on Sunday night from the Staples Center in Los Angeles. In this part one of our two part preview we focus in on the under card matches, and as always tomorrow will we feature the upper card contests.
Now that Paige has made her full turn to heel status this feud got even more interesting. As we have said previously we hope they trade the title back-and-forth for months. Hopefully Paige takes it back here.
Mark Eddinger (Motorsports101):
I think this could be a very great rivalry in the Divas division for a long time but the story angle between the two just isn't working that well and the Divas Championship match is not even the biggest Divas match on the card for 'SummerSlam.' I expect to see AJ Lee retain the title just like she did at 'BattleGround' last month.
This week we move along in our Top 10 countdown of wrestling families to numbers seven, six and five. These three are some of the best names the business had to offer mostly in the 1970's and 1980's. In case you missed the prior part of this countdown for numbers 10, nine and eight you may go back to read it here.
