The Future of Sheamus vs Alberto Del Rio
The finish to last night's World Championship match was reportedly the planned finish for the bout all along. The finish was done to setup a rematch between Sheamus and Alberto Del Rio at next month's Night of Champions PPV.
Match Scrapped From SummerSlam
Due to time constraints, a tentatively planned match between Damien Sandow and Brodus Clay was scrapped from the PPV. It's being said that Triple H's farewell scene after his bout against Brock Lesnar will play a big role in story lines going forward, so WWE officials wanted to make sure there was enough time for that to play out at the PPV.
