His manager Paul Heyman has made it personal also, verbally attacking Triple H for his poor life and business decisions, and then stooping to the levels of saying he was an embarrassment to both his wife and children. The 'King of Kings' Triple H is sure to be keen for revenge and to prove to Brock Lesnar he still has what it takes, but can he defeat the beast from the east? The bookies are making him the underdog (6/5) compared to Lesnar (4/5) who is sure to have the conniving Heyman in his corner.
WWE Champion CM Punk has undergone an attitude change somewhat in recent weeks. Whereas before he was earning respect from his peers and his loyal straight-edge fanbase, he is now going around DEMANDING it. New Raw general manager AJ certainly has not missed this, and booked him in a title match with not just John Cena, but the largest athlete in the world, the Big Show! CM Punk was openly outraged by this decision, citing a lack of respect - as the triple threat rules mean he can lose his coveted championship without even being pinned himself.
The bookies make him favourite still though, priced at (2/5) compared to John Cena (10/3) and the rank outsider Big Show (11/2).
It has been a rough couple of weeks for Daniel Bryan. First the Washington native was stood up at the altar by his then fiancee AJ, then he was called out by The Rock and called a goat faced oompah-loompa before being called psychologically unstable by Hollywood nut job Charlie Sheen. All of this has got to Bryan, and when he enters the arena to the cries of 'Yes! Yes! Yes! Yes!' he has recently got into the habit of shouting 'No! No! No! No!' into the faces of fans at ringside.
Unfortunately, his opponent at Summerslam is the Devil's favourite demon, Kane - who has a budding friendship with Bryan's former fiancée, AJ. Despite all of what is conspiring against Daniel Bryan, the bookies make him favourite (8/11) compared to Kane's price of (11/10).
Other matches at Wrestling's biggest summer extravaganza include The Miz (4/6) taking on the returning cruiserweight Rey Mysterio (11/8) for the Intercontinental Championship. Then the 'Show Off' Dolph Ziggler (2/5) is taking on 'Y2J' Chris Jericho (2/1) and World Champion Sheamus (2/7) takes on Alberto Del Rio (5/2).
