Tonight on the WWE Network, SummerSlam will be held in Brooklyn, New York. Check out down below for the preview and our predictions from us here at WNW.
Brock Lesnar vs Roman Reigns for the Universal Championship
Ryan: Match number four between these two, and I can’t say that I’m excited about this match. Whether this match ends SummerSlam or not, the Brooklyn crowd will eat both men alive. I would be surprised if we see Roman win. If Lesnar doesn’t sign another deal with WWE, I see him defeat Reigns, then a cash in from Braun Strowman or Kevin Owens. If he does, then I see Lesnar being protected and heading into his UFC fight in January with the Universal Championship.
Thomas: I want this feud to go one and finish already. I have gone in essential detail on how WWE has booked Brock to not put anyone under the age of 40 the rub. I see Brock signing a new deal because he likes money. I see Roman pin Brock, then Owens cashes in on Roman to become Universal Champion.
Ryan’s Prediction: Brock Lesnar
Thomas’ Prediction: Roman Reigns, then Kevin Owens cashes in to capture the Universal Championship.
Zack’s Prediction: Roman Reigns
Jovan’s Prediction: Roman Reigns
AJ Styles vs Samoa Joe for the WWE Championship
Ryan: These two have much more history from outside of WWE. I’m so torn on this match. I love to see Styles hold onto the WWE Championship, but would love to see a monster heel in Samoa Joe to capture it. Flip a coin.
Ryan’s Prediction: Samoa Joe
Zack’s Prediction: Samoa Joe
Jovan’s Prediction: Samoa Joe
Alexa Bliss vs Ronda Rousey for the Raw Women’s Championship
Ryan: Ronda Rousey is a natural, and as much as I love Bliss, I see a quick and easy win for Rousey.
Thomas: Ronda, and Ronda quickly.
Ryan’s Prediction: Ronda Rousey
Thomas’ Prediction: Ronda Rousey
Zack’s Prediction: Ronda Rousey
Jovan’s Prediction: Alexa Bliss
Carmella vs Becky Lynch vs Charlotte Flair for the Smackdown Live Woman’s Championship
Ryan’s Prediction: Charlotte Flair
Thomas’ Prediction: Becky Lynch
Zack’s Prediction: Carmella
Jovan’s Prediction: Charlotte Flair
Daniel Bryan vs The Miz
Ryan: 8 years in the making. If I was booking this, and Bryan does sign a new deal, Miz will retain here, and then will go on to capture the WWE Championship. Bryan then goes to win the Royal Rumble and then defeats The Miz for the WWE Championship at WrestleMania.
Thomas: This one is very simple and have Bryan win and make people happy, but I see a dusty finish with The Miz winning.
Ryan’s Prediction: The Miz
Thomas’ Prediction: The Miz
Zack’s Prediction: Daniel Bryan
Jovan’s Prediction: Daniel Bryan
Dolph Ziggler vs Seth Rollins for the Intercontinental Championship
Ryan: With Ambrose and McIntyre in the mix of this match, along with their tag team match advertised at Hell in the Cell, I see Dolph retaining.
Thomas: In typical WWE fashion, we got the gimmick match first, leading to a singles match. This could go either way but I’m going with a Rollins win and Dolph and Drew split up.
Ryan’s Prediction: Dolph Ziggler
Thomas’ Prediction: Seth Rollins
Zack’s Prediction: Dolph Ziggler
Jovan’s Prediction: Dolph Ziggler
Shinsuke Nakamura vs Jeff Hardy for the United States Championship
Ryan: Nakamura just won this title last month, there’s no need to have him drop it, especially if Hardy is going into a program with Randy Orton.
Thomas: Nakamura wins. No reason for Hardy to have this title while he’s in the feud with Orton. How Orton has not been inserted into this match is mind-numbing.
Ryan’s Prediction: Shinsuke Nakamura
Thomas’ Prediction: Shinsuke Nakamura
Zack’s Prediction: Shinsuke Nakamura
Jovan’s Prediction: Shinsuke Nakamura
Braun Strowman vs Kevin Owens and if Strowman loses, Kevin Owens wins the Money in the Bank Briefcase
Ryan: This will be a wildcard for me. I feel like WWE thinks they have hacked themselves into a corner, thinking Strowman is looking too strong with the Briefcase, hence why they want Owens to have it. Then again, Braun Smash.
Thomas: WWE loves to swerve fans here, and while Owens may have ‘won’ at Extreme Rules, I think he walks away victorious by a returning Sami Zayn.
Ryan’s Prediction: Braun Strowman
Thomas’ Prediction: Kevin Owens
Zack’s Prediction: Braun Strowman
Jovan’s Prediction: Kevin Owens
The Bludgeon Brothers vs The New Day for the Smackdown Live Tag Team Championship
Thomas: As long as The New Day has been relevant for so long, I feel like a split needs to be happening with Big E going on a singles run. With that said, I believe the Bludgeon Brothers drop the titles here.
Ryan’s Prediction: The New Day
Thomas’ Prediction: The New Day
Zack’s Prediction: The New Day
Jovan’s Prediction: The New Day
B-Team vs The Revival for the Raw Tag Team Championship
Ryan: The B-Team train keeps on rolling here, nothing else.
Ryan’s Prediction: The B-Team
Zack’s Prediction: The B-Team
Jovan’s Prediction: The Revival
Finn Balor vs Baron Corbin
Ryan: This feud is still going on?
Ryan’s Prediction: Finn Balor
Zack’s Prediction: Finn Balor
Jovan’s Prediction: Finn Balor
Cedric Alexander vs Drew Gulak
Ryan’s Prediction: Drew Gulak
Zack’s Prediction: Drew Gulak
Jovan’s Prediction: Drew Gulak
Andrade ‘Cien’ Almas and Vega vs Rusev and Lana
Ryan: 50/50 booking, Rusev Day picks up the win.
Ryan’s Prediction: Rusev and Lana
Zack’s Prediction: Almas and Vega
Jovan’s Prediction: Almas and Vega
