I'm actually going to watch this PPV. This is the first one I'm watching since Wrestlemania because they've all sucked. It seems like it will be a good show. HBK is not the wrestler he used to be. He's much smaller and not as agile to me. Hopefully HHH beats his a$$. Taker vs. Test should be good too. I expect The Rock to drop the belt to Brock so he can go make another movie. Whether or not it will be a clean pin I have no idea.

Original Desmond's Predictions

Edge vs. Eddie Guerrero - I like Eddie a lot, i think he is the most versatile in ring performer the WWE has had since HBK. Sadly i think Edge will win this one. I don't see the appeal of Edge, i find him very boring

Undertaker vs. Test - Hopefully this match will only last 5 mins ! I doubt Taker will do the right thing and job clean to Test, Taker will get the win, i'll be doing something else during this match

Ric Flair vs. Chris Jericho - In just about every match Flair has had since his return to the WWE, he has had to carry someone. Jericho will do more than his fair share on in ring work. I actually think this will be a decent match, Jericho will most likely get the win

Rey Mysterio, Jr. vs. Kurt Angle - An interesting mix of styles. Should be an entertaining match, both can perform in the ring. I expect Angle to get the win

Christian & Lance Storm vs. Booker T & Goldust - Not a match i'm particular enthused about. 4 decent in ring performers but i just hate the gimmick and the angle. I guess Booker and Goldust will get the win


Chris Benoit vs. Rob Van Dam (I/C Title) - Definite best match prospect, should contain some excellent ringwork and be very entertaining. I think Benoit will retain


Shawn Michaels vs. Triple H - THE match as far as i'm concerned Could be anywhere from average to mindblowing. I can't see HBK putting in any less than a huge effort, should be a good one. HBk to get the win


The Rock vs. Brock Lesnar - I've actually enjoyed the buildup to this one. Everyone will be surprised if Brock doesn't get the win, with ROck off to make more movies. Inring should be interesting


I hope there isn't a temptation to add any 'filler' matches. The only one i could handle is a 3 minute Torri Wilson V Dawn Marie V Stacey Kiebler triple thread Bra and Panties match

Only match that doesn't have a clear should be winner (i.e. lop-sided, but doesn't mean they will win) is "Chris Benoit vs. Rob Van Dam"

On napkin that looks to be the best wrestling match...

I've actually got pretty high expectations for SummerSlam or maybe it's just their promos for the event that have me jacked.

btw, what the hell does "6 1 9" mean when they're talking about Rey Rey? I don't get to watch Smackdown so I have no clue.

619 has something to do with his hometown area code IIRC

My predictions:

Edge
UT
Jericho
Angle
Book/Dust
Benoit
HBK
Brock

My prediction for Summer Slam:

Spoiler:
A lot of folks hacking the DirecTV H stream will be mad.


Oh, and Rock loses the belt.

I'm surprised they haven't made this a 'no disqualification' match, to leave the possibility of a run-in to not end the match and have Rock retain...

Wow and I thought the was a SmallBall exclusive.

I really don't see Brock winning the title. Sure they've hyped him to the main event but he's only been in the WWE for less than a year so I really see no way to justify him getting the title. He didn't pay his dues in other words. I predict the Rock winning on DQ and then losing the title the next night on Raw.

I think the HBK v HHH match will be slow with too much "time killers" -(I.E., a lot of someone outside the ring, looking to fans, etc) just to make the match longer than 5 minutes. Nothing hard here - remember the sorry pedegree on Raw? However, I think Shawn gets the win (Maybe HHH will slip and knock himself silly with his own sledgehammer or maybe he will Pedegree himself?) and afterwards Shawn will get the beating of his life therefore ending his WWE career {storyline}.

That's exactly what I see happening as well. I see Shawn and HHH putting a 2 star match on. Lots of HBK playing to the fans, while HHH looks angry.
The problem with this match is, that despite all their efforts, HHH isn't over as a heel. Watch RAW when he comes out. When his music hits, the crowd goes nuts. It's only when they realize he's going to start talking and not wrestling that they boo.
HBK isn't ready to have a wrestling match of this calibre.

I foresee Shawn winning(maybe using the Sledge against HHH), but then as he's celebrating, HHH gives him the beatdown of his life.

Aside from hogan in Wreslemania, this is the most I've been looking forward to a PPC in a really long time(which probably mean it will suck).

RVD vs Benoit should be a great match (I garaunty RVD will win)

Angle vs Mysterio I predict will be the greatest WWE match of the year. Angle will probably step in up a notch since he is never outdone by his opponents & he has never wrestled anybody like this. - Angle to win.

HHH vs HBK this match I'm looking forward to b/c there is a real good chance of HBK crippling him self or at least messing up really bad which I can almost garaunty he will do so that is enough to get me psyched for the match. Seems kind of a pointless match fro HBK to return to if he doesn't win so I give HBK the win.

And Brock vs Rock - This match I don't care about as I loathe the rock but at least he is wrestling somebody other then the same3 people he has wrestled for the last 3 years. Again I think it's a no brainer that the Rock will win. I'd be shocked otherwise.

The rest of the PPV I could care less about. I'm a little disspointed that there is no Hogan & no female match.
