Questions Left Unanswered at WWE SummerSlam

It’s about midnight on Monday morning and I am still dancing on the walls about SummerSlkam and the turn of events which took place in the final two major matches of the night.

No, I am not talking about the mixed tag match – more like the two greatest matches of the year so far in CM Punk vs. Brock Lesnar and Daniel Bryan vs. John Cena.

Now that there is a new WWE champion in Randy Orton, a dejected Daniel Bryan and a former WWE champion who will be out of action for a bit to repair an elbow, let me just say how great it is to be a fan of the company right now. Think of this as an early Christmas present to the WWE Universe.

Creative could not have picked a better time to get their heads out of the sand.

The fact Randy Orton cashed in his Money in the Bank contract is not surprising, however the fact the WWE gave Daniel Bryan all of 10 minutes to enjoy his title reign, if that. The screw job was in place and it was executed to perfection.

I suppose this meant neither Triple H nor Vince McMahon wanted Daniel Bryan to hold the strap. Clever thinking on behalf of the WWE.

All this does is cement new ideas for stories, new rivalries and new chances to try to prove to the fans that the team of writers in the company know what they are doing.

They may know what they are doing, but they still infuriate me most of the time.

And now that SummerSlam has come to an end, I still have loads of questions to ask about the pay-per-view and upcoming WWE events.

What happens now to Alberto Del Rio?

He retained the World Title in his match with Christian. I suppose there could be a rematch at Night of Champions, but I have a better idea. Could there be a return of Rey Mysterio?

I was listening to his comments after his match about how the Hispanic wrestling fans needed a hero and that hero was him. I half expected Mysterio to jump out of the back at Del Rio. Also, could Ricardo Rodriguez play a role in this angle?

How long will RVD and Dean Ambrose feud over the United States Title?

I like the angle. Not really crazy about the idea of Ambrose losing by disqualification. I want to see a clean match between these two because it could be awesome and would be a nice rematch at Night of Champions.

It is also a matter of how long Roman Reigns and Seth Rollins will hold out before putting their tag titles on the line against Big Show and Mark Henry.

How long does CM Punk and Brock Lesnar go on?

Not sure about that one. Lesnar is only involved in a handful of matches in the WWE this year. The match between the two Sunday night was epic and the best I have seen in decades.

I thought of Tommy Rich and Buzz Sawyer and Bruiser Brody and Stan Hansen while watching it. The mere fact Paul Heyman was involved was icing on the cake.

When wrestlers tell a story like that in the ring, I am not so concerned about the ending, rather when I can see it again.

How long does the WWE go on without John Cena

As long as it can. This is the golden opportunity to show everyone it does not need Cena to be successful. Randy Orton, Daniel Bryan, CM Punk, RVD. They all can rake. They all can carry and if the feuds between Orton and Bryan and Damien Sandow and Cody Rhodes carry over to the end of the year, the WWE will be sitting in gold.
