Another SummerSlam Exclusive: What Will Main Event Tonight?

Nick Paglino

According to a source I spoke with today, the current plan is to have CM Punk vs Jeff Hardy as the main event for tonight’s SummerSlam PPV. Originally, Vince McMahon wanted Orton vs Cena to headline the show, however, Triple H began lobbying for the DX match to main event with the reason being that it would diminish Shawn Michaels’ return to WWE if their match was not at the top of the card. However, during agents meetings this weekend, it was said that the likely main event will be Punk vs Hardy.

WWE officials, incluing Raw writer Brian Gewirtz, have been in LA this whole weekend working diligently on the show, and it’s being said that as of this writing all match outcomes have been determined and the agents are working with talents on producing the matches.

Michael Hayes and Pat Patterson will be putting the Punk/Hardy match together and it’s being reported that Stephanie McMahon will be backstage for the show show tonight even though she has been absent for the past few weeks of TV.
