– Bray Wyatt vs. Kane (Ring of Fire Match)
Prediction: Bray Wyatt wins.
Result: Bray Wyatt Defeated Kane.
The cryptic star made an impressive PPV debut, scoring a win over Kane in this ring of fire match. For weeks, Kane had been the target of vicious attacks from Bray Wyatt and his family, and on Sunday, his brothers helped him to take home the victory.
– Cody Rhodes vs. Damien Sandow
Prediction: Cody Rhodes wins.
Result: Cody Rhodes Defeated Damien Sandow
After being the World Heavyweight Money in the Bank ladder match by his former best friend, Cody Rhodes finally redeemed himself by defeating Damien Sandow at this year’s SummerSlam. Despite the victory, their feud is far from over, and certainly great things will be achieved by both men in the WWE.
– Alberto Del Rio (C) vs. Christian (World Heavy Weight Championship Match)
Prediction: Alberto Del Rio retains the title.
Result: Alberto Del Rio Defeated Christian
This was probably Christian’s career’s last title opportunity, and unfortunately he was not able to capitalize and end Alberto Del Rio’s heel run as champion. Del Rio has a very interesting heel gimmick and he is a good in-ring worker. However, even though predictions came true, fans were not impressed and this may as well the current champion’s last successful title defense.
– Brie Bella vs. Natalya
Prediction: Brie Bella wins.
Result: Natalya Defeated Brie Bella
Despite their frequent air time on Total Divas, Natalya has always been the show’s real star. The fan favorite diva used her sharpshooter submission finisher to defeat Brie on Sunday, thus, providing her wrestling ability.
– Dean Ambrose (C) vs. Rob Van Dam (United States Championship Match)
Prediction: Dean Ambrose retains the title.
Result: Dean Ambrose Defeated Rob Van Dam
This was the perfect match to go hardcore. Both Dean Ambrose and Rob Van Dam are two independent legends in the wrestling business and watching them face off in the ring was a treat for the WWE Universe. The match was amazing, and since Van Dam is a WWE veteran, it was natural for him to help put Ambrose over, and thus, the younger wrestler retained his title via disqualification.
– Brock Lesnar vs. CM Punk (No DQ Match)
Prediction: Brock Lesnar wins.
Result: Brock Lesnar Defeated CM Punk
Brock Lesnar’s winning ways continue as he defeated CM Punk on Sunday with a pin fall victory, though Paul Heyman interfered in the match several times. This was probably one of this year’s best matches. This no disqualification bout was brutal, with Lesnar always having the upper hand and CM Punk being the underdog as many times in the past.
– Dolph Ziggler and Kaitlyn vs. Big E. Langston and AJ Lee
Prediction: Dolph Ziggler and Kaitlyn Defeated Big E Langston and AJ Lee.
Result: Brock Dolph Ziggler and Kaitlyn win.
This was probably one of SummerSlam’s most convoluted matches and Dolph Ziggler and Kaitlyn scored a clean pinfall to win the match and defeat Big E Langston and AJ Lee. The match was indeed interesting, but would not have been supported by the fans had it not been an intergender match.
John Cena (C) vs. Daniel Bryan with HHH as Special Guest Referee (WWE Championship Match)
Prediction: Daniel Bryan wins the WWE Championship.
Result: Daniel Bryan Defeated John Cena
Daniel Bryan’s dream finally came true on Sunday when he defeated John Cena to win the WWE Championship and cement his status as one of WWE’s top dogs. It was a good move from WWE to give the title to Bryan, since Cena would be out of action due to an elbow injury. However, although he has become a megastar, Bryan’s victory was shortlived.
Daniel Bryan (c) vs. Randy Orton (WWE Championship)
Result: Randy Orton Defeated Daniel Bryan
After the vicious battle, Daniel Bryan was least likely to stand a chance and the viper struck by cashing in his Money in the Bank briefcase, and as of now, Randy Orton is the WWE Champion.
This concludes the results of this years SummerSlam, an interesting main event that set the stage for upcoming WWE shows and PPVs.
