WWE fans are gearing up for one of the biggest wrestling events in the world – SummerSlam 2010. The 23rd annual event will take place on Sunday August 15th at the Staples Center in Los Angeles and will also feature a fan convention, Summerslam Axxess, that will be held on August 14-16 at the Nokia Plaza in L.A. Live.
Five matches have been annouced for Summerslam that have fans excited. High on the list of anticipated bouts is the matchup between WWE Divas Champion Alicia Fox and contender Melina. Next on the bout card is a 3 on 1 Handicap match between The Big Show and The Straight Edge Society. The Straight Edge Society is composed of CM Punk, Joey Mercury, and Luke Gallows.
Also included in the SummerSlam lineup is a singles match for the World Heavyweight Championship between Kane and Rey Mysterio and a 7 on 7 elimination tag team match. This tag team match will feature Team WWE (John Cena, John Morrison, R-Truth, Bret Hart, Edge, Chris Jericho, and a wrestler to be announced) vs. The Nexus (Wade Barrett, David Otunga, Justin Gabriel, Heath Slater, Darren Young, Skip Sheffield, and Michael Tarver).
Last up on the schedule of events is the WWE championship match between Sheamus (the defending champion) and Randy Orton. This singles match is one of the most anticipated matches in WWE history. There is no love lost between these two foes as Sheamus has benefited from interference from The Nexus at the Fatal Four-Way and Money in the Bank to win and successfully defend his title. Additional stipulations were added to the Summerslam match: should anyone interfere in this match, he, she or they would be suspended indefinitely from the WWE; and also, should Orton lose, he would be rendered non-eligible to challenge for the WWE Championship as long as Sheamus remains the champion.
