2011 SummerSlam Predictions

The "WrestleMania" of the Summer is almost here as the 2011 version of WWE SummerSlam airs tonight.  With only five matches total announced for the event, a lot of the interest lies on the WWE Championship match.  However, we can still analyze the other offerings for this card.


Kelly Kelly (c) vs Beth Phoenix

While many skeptics have been critical of Kelly Kelly as the Divas Champion, she does have her fair share of fan-fare.  However, Beth Phoenix has been one of the most consistent female wrestlers the WWE has had for the past several years.  As well, the current alignment with Natalya as D.O.D. (Divas of Doom) should be too much for Kelly to retain.  Look for a new Divas Champion.


Prediction:  Beth Phoenix


 Daniel Bryan vs Wade Barrett

Remember these words, "going through the motions".  This is what Wade Barrett has done since he has no stable mates.  Barrett is in desperate need of something to happen, but I don't see that happening on this night.  Daniel Bryan should go over and continue to look strong in his long quest to be a World Champion.



Prediction:  Daniel Bryan


Sheamus vs Mark Henry

Mark Henry has been on the best run of his career while Sheamus is seemingly "going through the motions".  While Sheamus has been solid during his recent face turn, it would be hard to imagine anyone stopping Henry at this point.  Look for Mark Henry to do some damage after this match and to possibly challenge for the World Championship in the near future.

Prediction:  Mark Henry

Christian (c) vs Randy Orton 
No Holds Barred

It's been an odd (but well deserved) reign for Christian.  In fact, he may be one of the premiere heels in the company at this time.  Unfortunately for him, his work is a bit over-shadowed with the great angles RAW is currently running.  Randy Orton is also "going through the motions" and doesn't really need the win here.  Look for Christian to retain and continue the feud for at least another month.

Prediction:  Christian

John Cena (c) vs CM Punk (c) 
Guest Referee HHH

This is without a doubt THE match of the show.  With the momentum CM Punk has garnered over the past couple of months and with Cena looking vulnerable, this is one of the most intriguing match-ups in sometime.  Look for HHH to have involvement in this match, possibly costing Cena his chance at the championship.

Prediction:  CM Punk
