Yesterday we previewed the under card matches for WWE's biggest even of the season as 'SummerSlam' happens on Sunday night. Here we look at the main event for the WWE World Heavyweight Championship and the remaining upper card matches. In case you missed part one you may read it here.

WWE World Heavyweight Championship

John Cena (C) versus Brock Lesnar w/Paul Heyman

Peter Schifani:

Two years ago at 'Extreme Rules' John Cena was able to overcome a pretty bad beat down by Brock Lesnar and win just after his 'WrestleMania' loss to The Rock. Almost everyone thinks that Brock Lesnar will become the new champion here pretty easily to eventually set-up something for when Daniel Bryan returns. I am going against all of that and say that Cena retains, barely.

Mark Eddinger (Motorsports101):

To make Brock Lesnar's shocking win over The Undertaker at 'WrestleMania' feel more legit having Brock Lesnar win the WWE World Heavyweight Championship would sure do the trick. The question is whether the WWE will give the title to someone who does not wrestle every week. If John Cena loses this could finally be that moment that throws Cena into a heel role. Quite frankly I do not know what will happen. But if I was a writer for WWE I would have Lesnar win, Cena turn heel and CM Punk surprisingly return to feud with Brock and take the championship. We can all wish right?

Roman Reigns versus Randy Orton

Peter Schifani:

If Roman Reigns wants to get back on a roll and continue his push, both literally and figuratively, then he needs to win and convincingly over Randy Orton. We have heard that backstage Orton has tried to kill Reigns momentum. Hopefully here Roman gets it back with a solid win over The Viper.

Mark Eddinger (Motorsports101):

Lumberjack Match

MitB Contract Holder Seth Rollins versus Dean Ambrose

Peter Schifani:

Well since this match did not happen last month it will be more hotly anticipated than ever. With the now added stipulation of Lumberjacks surrounding the ring expect the "unhinged" Dean Ambrose to pull out a win here over Seth Rollins. These two may tear the Staples Center down with this one.

Mark Eddinger (Motorsports101):

The Lumberjack Match stipulation is never one of my favorites and I wish these two would just be squaring off one-on-one. But that match is probably coming down the line still. There will be plenty of interference and entertainment to go around in the match I'm sure and in the end Seth Rollins will be victorious one way or another.

Chris Jericho versus Bray Wyatt

(Luke Harper and Erick Rowan banned from ring side)

Peter Schifani:

The war of words during the face-to-face sit down on Monday Night Raw was eerie at first but got personal quickly. We wish these two could continue this well beyond 'SummerSlam' but alas Jericho will likely go away again for awhile due to an album release. Bray Wyatt goes over in this one.

Mark Eddinger (Motorsports101):

I was pretty shocked when Y2J beat Wyatt at WWE 'BattleGround.' I will be even more shocked if he wins here. I will pick Bray Wyatt to win. One has to wonder how Harper and Rowan will play a role in this victory even while being banned from ring side.

So that concludes our look at the biggest event of the summer season. WWE expects 'SummerSlam' to be just about as big as 'WrestleMania' was some months ago, with the way the card stacks outs. Hopefully if will give a boost the WWE Network and make even more people want to watch it going forward.
