WWE SummerSlam: Damien Sandow vs. Christian Needs to Happen

Sean O'Neil@snoneilSenior Analyst IJuly 17, 2012

At the 1,000th episode of Raw, Christian will defend his Intercontinental Championship against an opponent who is currently unknown. I predict that he will win regardless of who he faces.

Should he win, he'll probably face his next opponent at SummerSlam, and that man should be Damien Sandow.

Both men were impressive at Money in the Bank during the WHC ladder match, and when the two were in the ring together, they showed off some great in-ring chemistry.

As soon as the two of them started dueling in the ring in their attempts to acquire the briefcase, I felt as if they were destined to feud with one another.

Whether they were pulling one another off the ladder or trying their best to end each other for good, everything flowed perfectly as planned.

Their in-ring action culminated with Christian spearing Sandow on to a ladder in the corner, which Sandow sold beautifully, and I only wish that I could have seen more between them.

The Intercontinental Championship hasn't been defended at SummerSlam since 2010. This just seems like the perfect opportunity to have a memorable IC match.

There are more than four weeks until SummerSlam, which should be plenty of time to build up a feud between Sandow and Christian.

Sandow could interrupt Christian during a promo or attack him in the ring during his match at Raw 1,000 and claim that it was Christian's fault that he didn't win the Money in the Bank contract. He was all alone until Christian speared him onto the ladder.

They could then build on that for the following three weeks, culminating in a match at SummerSlam. Sandow could win that match, giving him his first good feud and title victory in the WWE all in one.

Christian has the ability to elevate Sandow to a whole new level if he were to put him over and lose the Intercontinental Title.

This match has tons of potential, and I can only hope that it happens.
