WWE SummerSlam 2013 Predictions, Full Card And Open Discussion Thread

Welcome to the WWE SummerSlam 2013 open discussion thread, where the With Leather pro wrestling readership and commenting community tries to come to terms with Triple H pedigreeing Daniel Bryan and John Cena, posing with the WWE Championship to end the show and Monday’s episode about how Daniel Bryan is too hurt to appear, but everyone who has ever been named “McMahon” is totally fine*.

WWE SummerSlam 2013 Full Card:

– Pre-show match for the United States Championship: Dean Ambrose (c) vs. Rob Van Dam

What I Want To Happen: Ambrose controls for most of the match. Van Dam starts his jump-kicky comeback, but doesn’t get total rotation on Rolling Thunder because he’s old and moving at 1/5 speed and lands on his head. Ambrose capitalizes with a headlock driver, Van Dam does his delightful headstand sell of the move, and Ambrose retains the United States Championship. The US title then becomes the “YouTube pre-show title” and gets defended there all the time, because at least then it’d have a regular purpose.
