WWE news: SPOILER on the exciting main event for SummerSlam and likely outcome

SummerSlam's main event could be big

SummerSlam is now just over one month away.

Traditionally one of WWE's 'big four' pay-per-views, the show is always circled in the calendars of fans and performers alike.

Although this year, things will be different. 

Due to the coronavirus pandemic, SummerSlam will likely take place at the Performance Center with no live crowd. 

Vince McMahon had hoped the PPV would go ahead in Boston where it was originally scheduled, with fans in attendance. 

It became clear months ago that won't happen and although the company are yet to officially comment, SummerSlam will likely air from Florida.  

While the logistics of the event are not yet set in stone, it seems WWE have made plans for the main event. 

SummerSlam should have been in Boston

According to Louis Dangoor of WrestleTalk, Drew McIntyre could put the WWE Championship on the line against Randy Orton - and drop the title.

That report is backed up by WrestlingNews.co, who suggest the original plan for SummerSlam was to have The Viper face Edge in the final match of their long-running feud. 

Due to injury, that won't happen and a new idea has been pitched which would see Orton win the WWE title and defend it against Edge at the Royal Rumble or WrestleMania next year. 

Orton could win the title from McIntyre

McIntyre could then win the championship back at a later date and get his 'true crowning moment' with fans in attendance.  

The Scottish Psychopath, of course, won the belt at WrestleMania 36 behind-closed-doors and hasn't yet been able to perform in front of a crowd as champion. 

GIVEMESPORT's Ollie Browning says:

This would certainly an interesting storyline. Becoming WWE Champion during the no fans era has almost been a poisoned chalice for McIntyre. 

McIntyre has been carrying WWE

He's carrying the company right now, but with no fans in attendance, it means very little. Ratings across WWE are hitting an all-time low, but that's absolutely nothing to do with him.

We have no idea when fans will be allowed back to shows, so taking the title off him and giving it to Orton, for the time being, wouldn't be a massive issue.

We're huge McIntyre fans, of course, and he definitely deserves a crowning moment as WWE Champion in front of a live crowd. 

McIntyre needs a moment in front of the crowd

If he's to drop the title to Orton and win it back at a later date, we wouldn't be against that.
