Updated SummerSlam Lineup, Possible Spoiler, Ring Of Fire Rules
Following Monday’s edition of WWE RAW, where new matches and stipulations were added to WWE SummerSlam, here is a revised look at this Sunday’s pay-per-view lineup:
WWE SummerSlam PPV Kickoff Show
-Dean Ambrose (c) vs. Rob Van Dam [WWE United States Championship]
-An All-Star panel featuring WWE Hall Of Famers Shawn Michaels and Booker T, along with WWE Diva and Total Divas reality show star Natalya.
WWE SummerSlam PPV
-John Cena (c) vs. Daniel Bryan [WWE Tite Match w/ Special Referee: Triple H]
-Alberto Del Rio (c) vs. Christian [World Heavyweight Championship]
-Bray Wyatt vs. Kane [Ring Of Fire Match]*
-CM Punk vs. Brock Lesnar (w/ Paul Heyman) [The Best vs. The Beast]
-Damien Sandow vs. Cody Rhodes
-Dolph Ziggler & Kaitlyn vs. Big E. Langston & AJ Lee
-Brie Bella vs. Natalya
* – It was made clear by the RAW commentary team of JBL, Jerry “The King” Lawler and Michael Cole that the “Ring Of Fire” match will end via pinfall or submission. In the past, you must catch your opponent on fire to win. However, that is the difference between an “Inferno Match” and a “Ring Of Fire” match.
-Also, it’s worth noting that Seth Rollins and Roman Reigns issued a challenge to any team to face them for their WWE Tag-Team Championships at SummerSlam. With Big Show returning to in-ring action at Sunday’s live event in Oakland, and returning to WWE television on RAW and facing off with Mark Henry, it’s possible the duo of Show and Henry will respond to the challenge on WWE SmackDown this week.
