WWE SummerSlam is about to begin. Known as the “Summer Biggest Event”, the event will be held at the Allegiant Stadium in Las Vegas on Saturday-this is the first time the event has been held in a football stadium. The game cards were filled with a lot of actions, which made the fans stand up from their seats and excited.
This card is about to be completed—outside of any potential game night—with seven titles in Sin City. Universal champion Roman Rains will defend John Cena, WWE champion Bobby Leslie will defend Goldberg, and the triple threat between champions Nicky Ashe, Charlotte Flair and Real Ripley Match. When Bianca Belair played against Sasha Banks, the SmackDown Women’s Championship was also up in the air in the rematch of WrestleMania.
There are more exciting things on Saturday night. Let’s take a look at what we know-and what we expect from WWE SummerSlam.
WWE SummerSlam competition
World Championship – Roman Reigns (c) vs. John Cena: After Reigns successfully defended his title to Edge, Cena made a huge return in Money in the Bank and confronted Reigns. On Raw the next night, Senna clearly explained the reason for his return. Senna said Raines is an overexposure and overhype gimmick, from which he intends to win the global championship. Reigns rejected Cena’s challenge and instead agreed to face Finn Balor. However, the contract to sing for Reigns vs. Balor was interrupted by Baron Corbin, which opened the door for Cena to run to the ring and sign his name on the contract, which WWE said was enough to formalize the game.
Original Women’s Championship – Nikki ASH (c) vs. Charlotte Flair vs. Rhea Ripley: When Nikki inserted her role at the end of an episode of Raw, Ripley and Flair were problematic women. She honored the Money in the bank contract to fix Flair and win the title. The following Monday, Flair asked for a game at SummerSlam, and Ripley did the same. Adam Pearce and Sonya Deville announced that this will be changed to the Triple Threat or the Raw Women’s Championship.
WWE Championship ——Bobby Leslie (c) vs. Goldberg: Lashley brushed shoulders with Kofi Kingston at Money in the Bank and re-established himself as a violent and dominant champion. After defeating Keith Lee on Raw the next night, Goldberg’s music was welcomed before he returned to WWE, and then announced to Rushley that “I’m the next one.” It took several weeks for Lashley to finally accept the game, but did so after Goldberg won the MVP on Raw. Goldberg, 54 years old, was dying as a performer, but he still drew a strong reaction from the audience. Lashley’s victory will continue to build on the best period of his career.
SmackDown Women’s Championship – Bianca Belair (c) vs. Sasha Banks: Banks returns to SmackDown to save Bel Air from the attacks of Carmela and Zelina Vega. Banks and Bel Air defeated Carmela and Vega in a doubles match later that night, but then attacked Bel Air with a vicious attack and won. A week later, Bel Air officially announced that if Banks wants a chance to regain the championship, she can get it on SummerSlam.
Edge vs. Seth Rollins: Rollins has repeatedly attacked Edge, including making Edge a universal title for Money in the Bank. After Rollins attacked SmackDown again, Edgie challenged him, saying that Rollins tried to follow in his footsteps, but could not fill their vacancy. Rollins tried to postpone the challenge, but when Edge said that Rollins was just “Edge-lite”, he finally agreed.
SmackDown Tag Team Championship – The Usos (c) vs. The Mysterios: In the rematch of Money in the Bank, Usos won the doubles championship. Since the tag department is very thin, there are not many other things to keep the champion busy, so they played singles matches with Rey and Dominic Mistrio for several weeks, and both sides used external interference to steal the victory before the tag champion. SummerSlam set up a rematch.
U.S. Championship – Sheamus (c) vs. Damian Priest: Priest disputed Sheamus’ vile tactics against Humberto Carrillo and Ricochet, and even called Sheamus a bully. After several weeks of teasing the game, Priest finally launched a challenge on Raw, and Sheamus promised to put the challenger in his place.
Drew McIntyre vs. Kinder Maha: Mahal and McIntyre are old friends, but Mahal and mobs Veer and Shanky began to interfere in McIntyre’s business, and eventually reached a climax in Money in the Bank, because these three made McIntyre lose the chance to win before dragging McIntyre out of the game . McIntyre defeated Veer and Shanky in a handicap in Raw, but it is stipulated that if McIntyre wins, the pair will be banned from playing in the SummerSlam circus.
Original doubles champion – AJ Styles & Omos (c) vs. Randy Orton & Riddle: Orton has stopped watching TV since late June, but WWE seems to be fully committed to the chemistry he and Riddle developed. Styles and Omos are becoming an interesting behavior that requires interesting challengers and RK-Bro to meet the requirements. Once Orton returns and Riddle rescues him from the tag champion’s attack, Riddle’s performance becomes very good.
Alexa Bliss vs. Eva Marie: Marie has had problems with Bliss for several weeks, mainly because she wants her muscle Doudrop to solve this problem. On the contrary, Doudrop has encountered Bliss’s doll Lilly several times, leading to a planned match between Bliss and Marie, which may not result in too many (if any) in-ring actions.
