The summerslam card is starting to fill out

Matches announced so far:

Reigns over Brock

Whoever wins the strowman - Owens match for the briefcase successfully cashes in after the match

AJ Styles over Samoa Joe. Just can't see Joe with the title. Too injury prone

Ronda rousey over Alexa Bliss. Clean. New champ

Becky lynch over Carmella. Clean. New champ. I've had Carmella correctly over Charlotte, and Asuka twice. It's time for her to lose the belt

Ziggler over Rollins.

Owens somehow someway beats strowman. Goes on to Cash in later in the night

Bludgeon brothers over whoever wins the 4 team tournament. No clue who won on tonight's show. I'm going with th Bar as the challengers

Probable matches

Miz over Bryan. Heel should win the first in a series of matches

Orton vs Hardy vs Nakamura for the US title. Nak retains

Revival defeats the B team for the raw tag titles

That's ten matches. There will be more

Sasha banks vs bayley = no clue. Banks wins

Aiden English over Rusev. Lana turns against Rusev and joins English

Rumored:

Taker vs Cena
Ugh no desire. Cena wins this time

Not sure how lashley gets on the card. Same with Charlotte. McIntyre vs lashley maybe?

Sounds like another marathon of mediocrity. I'll chime in with predictions when it's closer and more finalized.

Alexander vs Gulak for the cruiserweight title was added

Preshow for sure

Women's title match on smackdown is now a triple threat Carmella vs lynch vs Charlotte

I've gone full circle from feeling frustrated that too many wrestlers were getting left off shows like Summerslam (particularly during the first brand split era) to thinking they should cut half the filler off the card.

WWE has so many talented women wrestlers under contract.


The 2 main roster champions are probably the worst wrestlers not named Alicia Fox or Dana Brooke.

I like Carmella, but having her as champion has exposed just how unready she was for the spot, as well as just seeming like a strange option considering the talent around her. 

I like Bliss a lot too, but having her as the perennial, dominating champion is also odd considering the talent that's fallen by the wayside to make room for her.

I think Alicia Fox is underrated. Both in looks and wrestling ability

Not saying she's Charlotte or Becky level in ring.  But better than Bliss and Carmella for sure

I'm thinking they might have Gulak upset Alexander for the CW title. Otherwise, what's the point of having a seemingly ordinary title defense? A short 4-5 week run as champ for Gulak would generate some interest and give him some validation (maybe even the cliche' "you deserve it").
