Who'd have thought that after being completely left off WrestleMania, Samoa Joe would be booked for the SummerSlam main event? Who'd have thought there'd be ANY chance of him winning it too considering the opponents?

I'd have preferred straight up Brock/Strowman and the fact they're going to be in a fourway before a straight singles is a shame. That said, it should be fun.

Make the match an indie company dressed as security guards lumberjack match and it'd be guaranteed to be amazing.

I actually believe that for match quality, atmosphere, and undercard slotting, this four-way is the best idea. More time for others to get booked, and I'm expecting this to be an insane MOTYC. Remember that as a WWE multi-man singles contest it gets smoke and mirrors leeway too. If the match ends up not being off the charts, I'll consider it the most disappointing of the entire year.

The four way sounds awesome. I'm thinking we might get Owens vs. Shane and AJ defending the US Title against whoever loses the Nakamura/Cena match.

Expect Owens vs AJ w/Shane as referee.

No real clue what they will do with Nakamura. Probably it will be Jinder vs Cena vs Nakamura I guess.

They are saving Owens vs Shane for down the line this year and AJ/Nakamura for Wrestlemania at the earliest.

Makes sense, but I'd rather they do Nakamura/AJ asap. Nakamura's been very cold since his debut, but a match with AJ near the level of their WK10 outing could heat him up.

Any chance Cena is actually shifting to Raw soon? Nakamura is the last substantial dream match for him on SDL so after next week, that's it. (Difficult to take anyone seriously that wants to argue Mahal vs. Cena as a dream match.)

Where does Orton fit in? A program against Corbin?

I could see Cena heading to Raw. They have been billing him as a free agent.

The only problem I have with the four way is there have been so many multi-man main events this year which really zaps the chances of a true classic. Now, these four guys beating each other up will likely be awesome and I'm cool with that, but I'd much rather see Lesnar/Joe II, Lesnar/Reigns II or Lesnar/Braun one-on-one.

They always do multi person matches as a way of pretty much protecting everyone involved. Also hides a lack of real direction.

Should be a great match though.

Sold my takeover tickets (for a big increase, the market is good for takeover currently) and doing whatever it takes to get tickets for summerslam, for the main event alone.

After last years dud of a main event, I can't wait for this one.
