In this climate that is not the best for pro-wrestling shows, in a somewhat daring situation, full of changes of plans and changes of the last second, WWE would seem to still be able to create surprising shows that entertain its fans, with painstaking work done by every member of the McMahon federation crew that always manages to hit the mark, as happened in the company's last special event: Extreme Rules.
Apparently, WWE is already working in SummerSlam perspective, in a somewhat unusual way with regards to its crew, but decidedly current with regard to the pandemic period.
The SummerSlam 2020 pay-per-view is only a month away
Apparently, the strange thing that is said to have caught the eye of some source very close to WWE, (in this case we are always talking about the usual Dave Meltzer of the Wrestling Observer), would be a "strange" angle that WWE would have recorded in its latest television tapings and which has not yet aired on the company's weekly shows.
As literally reported by the Observer journalist, in fact: "They should have aired an angle between Drew McIntyre and Randy Orton in view of SummerSlam already last night. I assume they recorded it for the second show that was recorded (for next week).
I don't know if in the end it was still prepared, also because the same afternoon I was told that the angle would be there, but probably they wanted to give a little more space to the rematch between Drew McIntyre and Dolph Ziggler first and then the 'they held for next week."
In fact, it would not have made sense to air an angle with Randy Orton and Drew McIntyre who challenged each other for Summerslam when there was still the situation with Ziggler to be finished, with the Observer journalist who in fact provided for the promo to air for next week.
It now seems almost certain, therefore, that in the next WWE summer Big Four, Summerslam 2020, we will then see the Legend Killer Randy Orton chasing the WWE Championship currently held by the Scottish Federation Drew McIntyre, with the rumors of the last few weeks that would be so materialize shortly.
WWE decided to stretch out the McIntyre-Ziggler feud an extra week so they could try to get a ratings boost. Next week’s show will also feature Asuka vs. Sasha Banks for the Raw Women’s Championship, which is another rematch from Extreme Rules.
