What’s the full match card and predictions for WWE SummerSlam 2018?
2018 WWE SummerSlam matches
WWE Championship — AJ Styles (c) vs. Samoa Joe: The match fans have been waiting for is finally official with Styles and Joe — two former TNA stars — going head-to-head for the WWE title on one of the company’s grandest stages of the year. This should be fantastic.
Universal Championship — Brock Lesnar (c) vs. Roman Reigns: Lesnar will defend his title for the first time since April 27 against Reigns, who beat Bobby Lashley just a couple weeks after losing to Lashley at Extreme Rules. In other words, Lashley has a case to make for a potential triple threat match, though we’ll have to see if WWE decides to play that card. With Lesnar looking toward competing in UFC, it will be interesting to see whether he drops the championship at this event or perhaps the next night on Raw.
Raw Women’s Championship — Alexa Bliss (c) vs. Ronda Rousey: The payoff for a months-long feud that began when Bliss cashed in her Money in the Bank briefcase during Rousey’s title match against Nia Jax, this may be a massive moment for Rousey and the WWE women’s division.
SmackDown Women’s Championship — Carmella (c) vs. Becky Lynch: WWE did an admirable job building a winning streak that made Lynch whole again after so long of being second and third fiddle on the blue brand. After defeating Carmella, Lynch earned herself a title opportunity and should be able to cash it in now that James Ellsworth is fired and unable to interfere.
Intercontinental Championship — Dolph Ziggler (c) vs. Seth Rollins: It looked like Balor might get the opportunity, but it will be Rollins getting yet another rematch against Ziggler after pinning him in a tag team match on Raw. There is always the possibility that Balor or others get added, but this is the match as it has been made for now.
Money in the Bank Briefcase — Braun Strowman (h) vs. Kevin Owens: Raw general manager Stephanie McMahon made this match with Strowman putting his briefcase on the line against Owens after the latter earned a victory in a steel cage match at Extreme Rules.
SmackDown Tag Team Championship — Bludgeon Brothers (c) vs. TBD: A tag team tournament is being held over the next few weeks to determine the No. 1 contenders in a match that will go on at SummerSlam.
2018 WWE SummerSlam card predictions
These are all projected matches based on current storylines. None have been officially announced at this time.
John Cena vs. The Undertaker: Cena and Taker have not appeared on WWE TV since the Greatest Royal Rumble, and there is some unfinished business on Cena’s end after the quick loss he suffered at WrestleMania 34. This could be the second match of a trilogy paying off at WrestleMania 35 if WWE wants to go in that direction.
Daniel Bryan vs. The Miz: It would not be a surprise to see this years-long feud heat up in a major way as the path to SummerSlam comes into focus. This could be one of the top matches on the card if built right.
Sasha Banks vs. Bayley: The storyline has only gotten more convoluted the longer it has gone down. Though it looks like these two may team up for a rumored women’s tag team title, the ultimate payoff would still be them going head-to-head in Brooklyn, the location of their epic NXT women’s championship match.
United States Championship — Shinsuke Nakamura (c) vs. Jeff Hardy vs. Randy Orton: The surprise return of Orton at Extreme Rules confused Nakamura and resulted in some pain for Hardy’s nether region. Considering a heel vs. heel match would not make sense, the triple threat seems to make a lot of sense.
Finn Balor vs. Drew McIntyre: Some tension was obvious when McIntyre helped cost Rollins an intercontinental title win during his iron man match against Ziggler at Extreme Rules. That continued in a tag team match on Raw. So why is Balor here instead of Rollins? Well, because there’s nothing else for either of these guys to do right now.
