WWE Summerslam 2011 Predictions

There's just four matches on the card for Summerslam 2011 as of now. Three championships are on the line and potentially the life of Sheamus as he battles and angry Mark Henry in a grudge match. Here's Summerslam predictions courtesy of WWE Characters the Blog!

The one foreseeable title change (besides the fact someone won't have a WWE title) is that Kelly Kelly will lose to Beth Phoenix. It seems as if Kelly has finally met her match, unless WWE is planning to really put her over by some surprise win over Beth Phoenix. The Glamazon has the power and might here and should get it done in Los Angeles, a neutral fight area for the two divas.

Christian and Randy Orton meet again in a "No Holds Barred Match." Christian has managed to find a way to cheat his way to victory before, so expect it to happen again, although he won't quite be cheating here. It's possible someone else gets involved in the match to knock out Orton, allowing Christian to retain, and setting up a new Orton feud.

Sheamus seems to be a formidable opponent for Mark Henry, and they may even be preparing Sheamus for a title run at Christian next. Expect Sheamus to pull off the victory in this first match, unless it's a draw to set up their next go round. When all is said and done, the winner of this is a strong #1 contender for the World Championship belt.

Finally, there's the match everyone is anticipating. It was a bit harder to predict until Triple H got involved. WWE could obviously go two ways with this one depending on what they're moving towards in the future. Some will expect that Triple H manages to screw over John Cena after their previous in-ring exchange on Raw. However, CM Punk really pushed HHH's buttons quite a bit on the show the week before. That could come into play here if Punk keeps up the taunting. The pick here is with John Cena to emerge victorious in Los Angeles as the undisputed WWE Champion, to keep his promise to the Rock that he'd still be WWE Champion by Wrestlemania.

There's likely to be a few more matches added to the card probably as the event goes live. These could include The Usos vying for the tag team championships against David Otunga and Michael McGillicutty, and possibly Alex Riley taking on Dolph Ziggler for the US Championship. Also, there's a potential match with Cody Rhodes versus Ezekiel Jackson for the Intercontinental title. Summerslam goes live at 8PM EST on Sunday from Los Angeles on Pay-Per-View.

I think there's supposed to be R-Truth and John Morrison, plus probably a mid-card "attraction" with Miz perhaps too.
Apparently, Cody wins the IC title from Big Zeke tonight on Smackdown, so a rematch is either happening at Summerslam or next week on the blue brand.
