With Summerslam a little over two months away and rumours starting to flow, it’s time to start to speculate on how the card will look. So far there have been rumblings of a CM Punk vs. John Cena title match, to go along with the Triple H vs. Brock Lesnar Main Event. Obviously there is plenty of room on the card for the newly returned Chris Jericho, the soon to return Rey Mysterio, Randy Orton, and Wade Barrett as well as the rising stars like Sheamus and Daniel Bryan. With a little bit of speculating, the card may look something like this…
Christian, Santino Marella, Kofi Kingston, R-Truth
Alberto Del Rio, The Miz, Kane, and Cody Rhodes
Pre-Show YouTube Match
This match is taking a page from last years six-man bonus match involving all of the upper-midcarders that just missed the main match. No reason for something like that not to happen here. Of course this could be added to the main card if they put some sort of stipulation to it or just wanted to give all of these big names a pay day.

Chris Jericho vs. Daniel Bryan
One of these two is due for a faceturn and a feud between these two could be entertaining both in and out of the ring. This could be the obligatory match to get the internet geeks excited and pop the crowd to start the show.
No DQ Match
While these two had a brief match on Monday this pat week, the feud seems to be a ways from over. Hopefully they can have Clay cost Show his Money in the Bank Match and have the feud kick it from there. These two could have an entertaining match and the stipulation would really help cover up both of their in-ring flaws. Plus, anything that helps get newer talent on the big card is a good thing.
Wade Barrett vs. Randy Orton
These feud between these two was not quite finished back in the winter when Barrett went down with his arm injury. Both of these two are due to return soon, and it makes sense to have these two come back and pick things up just where they left off. A big victory over Orton could make Barrett’s return a huge deal.
WWE Tag Title Match
This is a bit of an off the board prediction but it certainly makes some sense. Titus O’Neil and Darren Young are very likely candidates to be the next Tag Team Champions. If the company is serious about rebuilding the division it seems like they need to give them a spot on the major card. If Mysterio is returning soon, the obvious feud for him is with Sin Cara, but it would be easy to rush that feud, so why not have them team up? Give them an extended run with the Tag Team Titles before they split and face one another at Wrestlemania. It makes perfect sense, does it not?
