Report: SummerSlam Card Changed Drastically Prior to Raw

Nick Paglino

Alberto Del RioF4WOnline.com is reporting that just moments before Raw last night, WWE creative was making major changes to the SummerSlam card, and once again it appears as if Alberto Del Rio is on the short end of the stick.

It was highly speculated awhile back that WWE had been planning a Del Rio vs Cena title match at SummerSlam, however officials felt that the way they had CM Punk booked for the event was "awful," so they decided to make changes. Del Rio was therefore removed from the title picture as WWE did not want the current momentum CM Punk has to die down with a weak spot on the SummerSlam card.

It is being said, however, that Del Rio is tapped for a title run in the fall, as WWE will be doing a tour of Mexico on which the company wants to feature Del Rio prominently.
