Alexa Bliss vs. Ronda Rousey (Raw Women’s Championship)
4 OF 6
WWE is already giving Ronda Rousey another chance at winning gold when she faces Alexa Bliss for the Raw Women’s Championship.
Rousey’s first title shot was interrupted when Bliss cashed in her Money in the Bank contract to win the belt from Nia Jax, so the UFC Hall of Famer has a reason to be mad.
Unless The Goddess has something big planned other than having Mickie James at ringside, this seems like an open-and-shut case.
There’s always the possibility someone like Jax or Natalya could interfere to prevent the belt from changing hands, but having Rowdy Ronda as one of its champions will generate too much press for WWE to pass up the opportunity.
Prediction: Rousey is going to destroy Bliss to win her first title in WWE at SummerSlam.
Brock Lesnar vs. Roman Reigns (Universal Championship)
5 OF 6
When Bobby Lashley defeated Reigns at Extreme Rules, many fans thought it was a sign he would end up challenging Lesnar for the Universal Championship at SummerSlam.
Then WWE ruined it Monday by having Reigns beat him in a rematch to become the No. 1 contender. There is still time for management to change its mind, but it’s more likely we are going to get another contest between The Beast and The Big Dog.
Pro wrestling is supposed to be fun for the fans, but the situation with Reigns is getting out of hand. We have seen WWE CEO Vince McMahon’s stubbornness before, but his desire to make Reigns the face of the company has reached new heights of annoying.
At least we can take comfort in knowing this will almost certainly be the final chapter of their story. Reigns can win the title and reclaim his yard while Lesnar heads back to UFC for another big paycheck.
Prediction: Reigns finally wins the Universal Championship.
AJ Styles vs. Samoa Joe (WWE Championship)
6 OF 6
Management will likely close SummerSlam with either Rousey or Lesnar’s match, but the main event should be AJ Styles vs. Samoa Joe for the WWE Championship.
These veterans have been fighting each other for well over a decade, but somehow it never gets old seeing them wrestle because they always come up with something new.
Their matches were part of what made people take notice of TNA when it was first getting started on television. However, they have never been together on a stage as big as SummerSlam before.
The Phenomenal One has retained his title against some of the best SmackDown has to offer, but this feels like Joe’s time to shine.
Styles has had a great run with the WWE Championship since winning it in November. It’s time for someone else to carry the gold.
Prediction: Samoa Joe chokes out Styles to become WWE champion.
