Backstage SummerSlam News: Axel Not Booked?, Big Show, The Shield/Henry

Posted by Matt Boone August 1, 2013 3 Comments

-As of this writing, there are no concrete plans for WWE Intercontinental Champion Curtis Axel as far as a match at the upcoming WWE SummerSlam pay-per-view. It is possible that Axel will be added to the SummerSlam pay-per-view pre-show, as the company has recently been putting title matches on the “PPV kickoff” specials.

-Despite the fact that he has not yet been officially cleared to return to in-ring action, WWE Superstar The Big Show is expected to be ready to return to the ring in time to follow-through on SummerSlam booking plans. Current plans feature a two-on-three handicap match between all three members of The Shield (Dean Ambrose, Seth Rollins and Roman Reigns) and the big-man duo of The Big Show and Mark Henry.

Additionally, Big Show is expected to return at the WWE RAW show on August 5th to shoot the angle for the aforementioned pay-per-view match.

      Welcome to holding the irrelevance of being the Intercontinental Champion Curtis. Enjoy the Wade Barrett downslide.

      So they’re going to just push the Usos to the sideline???

      Maybe it’s b/c he just not grabbing people’s attention even w/ the likes of Paul Heyman by his side? I think he’s a good wrestler, but there’s just something lacking w/ him, nothing to make him interesting. Perhaps he’d be better off in a tag team where there’s another person he can feed off of & develop a character then break into single competition.
