Nick Paglino

WWE SummerSlamAs we previously reported, Hulk Hogan will be guest hosting the final Raw show before WWE SummerSlam this year, and will also be appearing at the WWE Live Event the night before SummerSlam in San Jose.

According to, an angle is expected to take place on the 8/11 edition of Raw which will setup Hogan’s involvement at the SummerSlam PPV the following Sunday.

In related news, Ric Flair will be co-hosting the 8/16 live event in San Jose alongside Hogan.

With regards to Intercontinental Title plans heading into SummerSlam, there has been backstage talk in WWE that the title could be defended in a Triple Threat match at the big PPV. Current discussions have included The Miz defending the IC Title against Dolph Ziggler and Bo Dallas.

Paglino: Yep, you read that right. Dolph Ziggler. I’m remaining quietly optimistic about WWE’s better use of Ziggler in recent weeks, as the push could be heading nowhere. Ultimately, I would much prefer a Miz, Ziggler, Dallas feud to a Miz, Ziggler, Sheamus feud.

Which do you prefer? Do you think Sheamus is necessary in this feud in order to unify the IC and U.S. Titles?
