WWE SummerSlam preview (1)

Published 1 Comments

The biggest party of the summer is finally here. The Staples Centre in LA is all set to host SummerSlam 2014, and it looks like the WWE have gone all out to cement it as "WrestleMania Jnr".

This is arguably one of the most important PPVs in recent wrestling history. The WWE Network hasn't pulled in the number of subscribers that the higher-ups wanted, and with it set to be rolled out internationally soon, they will want to put on a great show to make us part from $9.99 a month.

WrestleMania drew a lot of subscribers due to its name power, SummerSlam doesn't have that luxury so it will be need to be a strong wrestling show to make people want to sign up to the network - too often we are presented with PPVs that are nothing more that gloried RAWs.

Hence why we have a stacked card heading into Sunday, with eight matches confirmed, we could be in for a stellar show.

The build up has been solid heading into the Staples Centre, with Paul Heyman selling the main event almost single-handed, but props also go to Dean Ambrose, Zeb Colter and Lana for doing a great job of selling the mid-card.

The only disappointment has been the pushing of the Stephanie McMahon and Brie Bella feud.

No matter how much the WWE tries, no one seems to care about the Bella Twins, there's only so far their looks can get them before there lack of wrestling and acting ability expose them horribly.

The storyline didn't make sense to begin with, Brie was fighting for a job she quit in the first place, whilst John Cena just stood in the back watching his girlfriend get beaten up every week? No thank you WWE.

When they closed RAW a couple of weeks back, you could hear crickets in the crowd, that was until Jamie Noble ran down to split the two up.

Jamie Noble, an unspectacular lower-card wrestler, actually got his own chant.

That's how little people care about this feud.

The fact it is now being slated to be one of the main events is nothing short of disrespectful to the people they come above, Dean Ambrose and Seth Rollins create poetry in the ring with a hot feud, but they are now playing second fiddle to the bosses daughter and a reality TV star? This is why the Network is failing with it's numbers.

So with that being the only negative, although a big one, let's have a look at what is going down at SummerSlam.
