The big match for the WWE Title at SummerSlam is not yet confirmed, but it’s pretty much set in place. Seth Rollins will put the WWE Title on the line while John Cena puts the United States Title on the line in a “Winner Takes All” match. Some backstage news and spoilers for the Cena/Rollins feud plans are beginning to leak out, and it doesn’t appear as if it will be ending soon.
Possible spoilers are ahead for SummerSlam and beyond, so if you don’t want to know what may happen, stop reading now.
WrestleZone is reporting that there are actually long-terms plans to have the John Cena and Seth Rollins feud going on for a while. Even though the feud began two weeks ago and the winner at SummerSlam is due to get both belts, it won’t be done after that.
After Rollins broke Cena’s nose on Monday Night Raw two weeks ago, the feud took a bit of a pause. Cena had emergency surgery to correct his breathing and has been off of WWE television for one week. He is due to miss at least one more week.
This leaves Rollins to build up the feud on his own, and he’s doing a pretty good job of it. Coming out this past Monday with a new shirt mocking Cena, which said “Never Shut Up” and “You Can’t See Knee,” was positively brilliant.
According to the Wrestling Observer, John Cena vs. Seth Rollins is being advertised to headline WWE live events throughout the whole month of October. This leaves a few different scenarios available for the finish of their match at SummerSlam.
- Double disqualification and both men keep their respective titles.
- Seth Rollins wins both titles and begins his own U.S. Open Challenge, and Cena eventually wins it back.
At this point, John Cena is not expected to win the WWE Title over Seth Rollins, and that is one plan that may be set in stone. With Night of Champions happening on September 20, fans can expect a rematch of some sort.
If the ending to the WWE Title match at SummerSlam ends up being a screwy finish, fans may be willing to move past that. With The Undertaker and Brock Lesnar’s match likely landing in the main event spot, the screwjob finish in the “Winner Takes All” match may end up being forgotten by the time the night is over.
