SummerSlamThe SummerSlam Kickoff Show with a shot of the inside of the STAPLES Center in Los Angeles, California. Josh Mathews welcomes us to the Kickoff Show, and introduces the Superstar Panel for tonight, which consists of Booker T, Shawn Michaels, and Vickie Guerrero. Michael says he is looking forward to the show and the biggest thing is Daniel Bryan vs. John Cena. Booker says he is looking forward to Bray Wyatt vs. Kane, and Vickie says she is looking forward to Alberto Del Rio vs. Christian. Michaels says Wyatt is in an uphill battle tonight in the Ring of Fire Match. We take a look back to Raw, where Rob Van Dam became the number one contender to the WWE United States Championship and The Big Show returned to assist Van Dam and Mark Henry against The Shield. Booker says Van Dam is going to have to step up tonight and Michael says everybody is impressed with The Shield and this will prove if they are the real deal.

We go backstage to the Social Media Lounge and join Renee Young. She wants to know the predictions of the WWE Universe on Twitter and the WWE Universe’s favorite SummerSlam moments on Tout.

We take a look at the video hype package for the on-going feud between Brock Lesnar and CM Punk. We are joined by Paul Heyman, who is backstage. Mathews goes to ask Heyman a question, but Heyman tells him to stop. Heyman says David vs. Goliath is a story we tell our children to give them hope that there are still heroes left in the world. Heyman says Brock Lesnar will take CM Punk’s best shot, but then will lay waste to Punk and make it to where we will never see Punk again. Heyman says he would like to make sure that Lesnar and Punk do battle under the rules of no disqualification. Heyman says Punk will be pushed into martyrdom by Lesnar. Booker says Lesnar is right at home in a no disqualification situation now, but Punk will not lay down. Michaels says he was concerned for Punk before this match, but the no disqualification stipulation will serve him well.
