Pay-Per-VIew scorecard: WWE SummerSlam


SummerSlam 2013 is in the books and, as has become tradition in these parts, it’s time to see how the predictions I made in the staff predications on Saturday stack up to the actual pay-per-view results.
On a side note, before I begin, I apologize to the other staff and readership here at Between the Ropes for my lack of involvement in our SummerSlam coverage, including getting this post up some 24 hours after the event. There is no excuse I can give that would justify that, and for that I apologize. I am doing my best to make sure that this will not happen in the future.
With that said, to the scoring
WWE Championship Match: Daniel Bryan originally beat John Cena for the title only for referee Triple H to cost Bryan the belt and allow Randy Orton to cash in Money in the Bank and win the title. Not only did I call Bryan winning against Cena, I called the Triple H swerve and Orton cash-in. For that I’m gonna be a bit of a glutton and award myself 2 points.
No Disqualification Match: Brock Lesnar def. CM Punk. The no DQ sit was added earlier in the night and definitely made that match that more interesting. It also aligned with my original pick and Brock came out with the win. 1 point.
World Heavyweight Championship Match: Alberto Del Rio [c] def. Christian. Like I said Del Rio will always be the heel champion that pulls out the win with the gold on the line. 1 point.
Mixed Tag Team Match: Dolph Ziggler and Kaitlyn def. Big E Langston and AJ Lee. I didn’t know where this match was going and my score reflects that. 0 points.
Natalya def. Brie Bella. I did not see that one coming as the Bellas seem to be the commodity in this match WWE has more invested in. 0 points.
Cody Rhodes def. Damien Sandow. Honestly this one could have gone either way, it was a flip of the coin, that I was unfortunately on the wrong end of. 0 points.
Rung of Fire Match: Bray Wyatt def. Kane, with a little help from the family. As we know that Kane is taking time off to film See No Evil 2, this was expected and thus properly predicted. 1 point.
Pre-Show Kickoff Match for the United States Championship: Rob Van Dam def. Dean Ambrose by DQ. I called Ambrose leaving with the title, but ultimately thought he would win as well. 0 points.
That leaves me with a SummerSlam score of 62.5%. Overall I think that that signals an interesting direction that WWE took for their second biggest pay-per-view event of the year. Stick with Between The Ropes as we bring you al of the SummerSlam fallout. I’ll be back with pay-per-view scorecard next month when WWE presents Night of Champions.
