Stone Cold Steve Austin has revealed his picks for the two main event matches at SummerSlam, John Cena vs Seth Rollins, and The Undertaker vs Brock Lesnar.
The Undertaker vs Brock Lesnar
The WWE Hall of Famer was asked by IGN who he thought would leave victorious in each matchup.
For The Phenom vs The Beast, he said: “I think it’s his turn (The Undertaker). And if you go that way then you can take the rubber match to WrestleMania and then Brock goes over and Taker rides off into the sunset. That’d be my prediction.”

So Stone Cold’s first prediction is that The Undertaker will win, and then they’ll have a tie breaker at next year’s WrestleMania, where The Deadman will win once again and retire. Interesting outcome if you ask me, as many have speculated Kane will make his return here and cement The Undertaker’s heel turn.
John Cena vs Seth Rollins
As for the winner takes all, title vs title match between John Cena and Seth Rollins for the WWE World Heavyweight Championship and the United States Championship, he found it tough to call.
He said: "It's hard to pick that one, because I'd hate to see Seth Rollins' momentum stopped right now. And that being said, if John Cena goes over and he's got those two titles with him, what do you do with him? Again, you're setting up a return match, but you can't have too many return matches going into 'Mania."
"But everybody also knows that I'm a huge John Cena fan for his contributions for what he's done for the business. He's been the top guy for the last ten years. I've been there and I did it, so the run that he's had is amazing. When you get the IWC involved, a lot of people have had a gut-full of him.
“But when a guy like me from outside, who was inside in the business at the highest level, looks at what he's done, it's phenomenal. So you could flip a coin on this one. You'd really have to get inside Vince McMahon's head and see the chess game that's going on. Get his mindset to see what he wants to do with the pieces on the table. That's a hard one for me to pick.
“I'll go Taker on Taker/Lesnar, but it's really hard to call Cena/Rollins."
It is difficult to decide a winner in the Cena vs Rollins match. Rumours have been flying around that Triple H will interfere in the match up, but really it’s anyone’s guess as to what the final outcome will be.
