Although nearly a dozen games are expected for SummerSlam 2017, the number of rivalries currently underway at Raw, SmackDown and 205 Live far outnumber that number. That’s why shocks that are not attractive could be left out of the biggest event of the summer and, according to some reports, the first casualty would be in the red mark.
In a recent edition of the Wrestling Observer, Dave Meltzer speculated on the possibility that WWE discarded the plans of a The Miz Vs. Jason Jordan for the Intercontinental Championship, this after the company realized that the illegitimate son of Kurt Angle was not generating any positive reaction among the public, something that was even pointed out by the champion on MizTV.
Apparently, in WWE there is disappointment after neither the most loyal fans nor the casual public showed interest in Jordan’s revelation as the offspring of the general manager , a story that seemed doomed from the start and in the weeks after the announcement managed to disappoint even Who had been given a chance.
This is not the first change of plans that the Intercontinental Championship suffers at SummerSlam. Originally a triple threat was planned between The Miz, Dean Ambrose and Seth Rollins, but the reconciliation story between the former Shield ended up putting them in the way of the Raw Sheamus & Cesaro Couples Champions, while The Miz was in charge of propelling the Thrust of Jason Jordan.
Unfortunately, Jordan has had little opportunity to show off his enviable talent in the ring, and instead have created plenty of opportunities to bring out his notable shortcomings in the microphone. The result is clear.
It is well known that Vince McMahon changes his mind constantly and usually just before the television broadcasts start, so it will be necessary to wait for the red show to know if Jason Jordan will be able to show his courage or he will see how the biggest thrust of his career escapes him between the fingers.
