WWE SummerSlam 2017: 5 things that fans hope won't happen but surely will at the PPV
As we enter the final week in the build up to WWE Summerslam 2017, expectations are high for the company's first joint Monday Night Raw and Smackdown Live pay-per-view since WWE Wrestlemania 33. "The Biggest Party of the Summer" has quite a few intriguing matches and storylines and fans are eagerly awaiting the pay-per-view in Brooklyn.
But, along with this excitement also comes trepidation. The WWE Universe have grown wary of the company's questionable booking decisions and it always feels like taking one step forward and two steps back with the creative direction that the company seems to take. And, there's nothing different with Summerslam this year.
The show has the potential for greatness but there are some things that professional wrestling fans just don't want to see happen but chances are these events are almost guaranteed to occur during the course of the four-hour extravaganza.
So, without any further ado, let's get into our list of five things the fans hope won't happen at WWE Summerslam 2017 but surely will:
#5 Both John Cena and Randy Orton don't win
John Cena and Randy Orton are pretty much untouchable at the top of the WWE's food chain. But, they're also seasoned veterans who should be looking to the next generation of WWE Superstars and helping these youngsters get over with the fans. To that respect, both men should be eating a loss at WWE Summerslam 2017.
Cena is up against Mr Money in the Bank, Baron Corbin, while Orton faces off against Rusev. Both younger men are primed for a run at the top and could use a helping hand on the way there. Unfortunately, it doesn't look like both men will be getting their due.
While Cena has done his fair share of putting people over -- especially at Summerslam events these past few years -- Orton is rarely ever asked to lay down for a younger man. One of them might take the loss here but hoping that both Rusev and Corbin will get big wins is wishful thinking at best.
It should be noted that John Cena hasn't won a SummerSlam match since 2010, and hasn't been victorious in a SummerSlam match since 2007! This is a huge streak of Cena that looks to be coming to an end this year. 10 years is a long time, to be fair.
