WWE SummerSlam 2018 Card and Predictions
The second biggest PPV of the year for the WWE! And it is stacked! I said this once, I said it twice, I said it three times, and I'll say it again! WWE cannot continue to have same PPV on a duel branded show and the amount of talent they have on the roster. Just like NXT has its own PPV. I honestly think the women should get there own brand, show and PPV. There are way to many guys on the main roster with too much talent to not showcase them on a PPV. 2 brands in RAW and SmackDown Live and you need 2 PPV's a month, along with a Women's PPV as the women should have tag titles and a form of an intercontinental title and NXT should have monthly PPV's not quarterly PPVs with the depth in there roster too. That's 4 PPV a month. 1 every Sunday of the month.
How can you have guys like The Usos, The Bar, Dillinger, AOP, Titus WorldWide, Bray Wyatt, Bobby Roode, The Club, Asuka, SAniTY, Nia Jax, Bobby Lashley, Sasha Banks, Bayley and I can keep going NOT on a PPV???? They need duel brand PPV's. PERIOD! 6-7 hour PPV's????? are you kidding me? WAY TOO LONG! People are not watching the whole show.
Regardless we are calling the card order and the predicting outcomes for SummerSlam 2018.....let's kick this off with the Kick Off Show......
KICK OFF SHOW:
1. 205 LIVE WWE Cruiserweight Championship: Cedric Alexander (c) vs Drew Gulak
Cedric has carried the strap since Enzo got booted for his drama. It's time for Gulak to run with it for a while and see if he can build 205 LIVE into a better show. Cedric has not had the success in that.
WINNER: New Cruiserweight Champion Drew Gulak
2. Rusev and Lana vs. Andrade "Cien" Almas and Zelina Vega
This will be a boring match. Expect Aiden English to attempt to help Rusev/Lana yet again in a failed attempt to cost them the win and a Rusev turn or Aiden to interfere cost Rusev the match and Aiden joins Alamas and Vega. To then set up this feud even more.
WINNER: Andrade "Cien" Almas and Zelina Vega due to Aiden English interference.
3. RAW Tag Team Championship: The B Team (c) vs The Revival
I'm massively upset The B Team have the straps. But with them pushing them hard.....(The BEST Tag Team in the World) The Revival will not get that chance. I think it would be best for them to ask for their release and do a Cody Rhodes. This is NOT FAIR! Expect B Team to retain and set up a feud somehow with AOP in the future.
WINNER: The B Team retains!
1. InterContinental Championship: Dolph Ziggler (c) with Drew McIntyre vs Seth Rollins with Dean Ambrose
They will start this out with a bang and hopefully Dolph doesn't get jammed from the crowd which they will try to throw him off in Brooklyn. Expect Seth to win with Dean helping block Drew McIntyre. This will also set up tag matches and matches for Drew vs Dean.
WINNER: AND NEW AGAIN IC Champ Seth Rollins
2. Finn Balor vs Constable Corbin
I'm going the opposite direction with this one. Rumors have it that Reigns will feud with Corbin after SummerSlam. I think Corbin takes the win on this to build on his feud with Reigns. You need another top BIG HEEL for Reigns.
WINNER: Constable Corbin again
3. United States Championship: Shinksuke Nakamura (c) vs Jeff Hardy
With Matt Hardy taking time off to nurse some injuries, Jeff will get broken by Nakamura and Orton to rejoin his BROKEN WOKEN Brother. Nakamura retains with Orton interference which will lead to a Orton vs Hardy feud to further break Hardy.
WINNER: Shinksuke Nakamura retain
4. SDL Tag Team Championship: The Bludgeon Brothers (c) vs The New Day
The Bludgeon Brothers retain as The Bar gets mixed in and costs the New Day the match. Expect a 3 Way in the future with these three teams.
WINNER: The Bludgeon Brothers hold on to the straps
5. Daniel Bryan vs The Miz
8 years we have been waiting for this, at one point we thought it wouldn't happen and now this. This feud can and should be the best feud on Main Roster. They should see a trilogy if they book it right. i expect to see the Miz win the first match with his show on USA now. At some point I expect the Miz to win the title and feud with Bryan and WrestleMania for their third match for the strap and Bryan winning the strap.
WINNER: The Miz
6. Triple Threat SDL Women Championship: Carmella (c) vs Becky Lynch vs Charlotte Flair
Carmella is the new Brock Lesnar. Cant vote against her cause she always wins. I would not be shocked if Ellsworht shows up and she runs with it, BUT I think Becky pins Carmella for the strap and Charlotte either turns on her at SummerSlam or in near future to set up a feud with her. Charlotte turning heel is mandatory here since they are building to a Charlotte vs Rousey at Mania. Becky deserves the strap for a small run.
WINNER: NEW CHAMPION Becky Lynch
SEGMENT: Elias Segment with Lashley interference or a potential ROCK TV SEGMENT against Elias to build into a WrestleMania feud.
7. Money In The Bank Match: Braun Strowman (MITB) vs Kevin Owens
Ok this is complected. This can go many ways but Stroman is being built as a FACE. Which makes me lean towards Jinder involving himself into match to cost Braun the briefcase. That way KO can insert himself in the Lesnar/Reigns match and be the HEEL to Reigns. I don't think they would have Strowman win if Reigns keeps or has the strap. Either way Reigns DOES NOT LEAVE as champ. This is all part of Vince's "feel bad for Reigns" to get people to cheer him, which they are starting to. If Strowman wins, Lesnar beats Reigns and Strowman cashes in to beat Lesnar of the strap. Again like Reigns, Lesnar has no chance walking out as champ either due to his UFC bout scheduled for December or Janurary. I can also see Reigns beating Lesnar and then KO cashing in the breifcase to take it from Reigns. This is my likley scenario. that way HEEL vs FACE and Reigns needs KO he works the mic as a HEEL like MAGIC!
This is the most important match of the night and will dictate the Main Event.
WINNER: KO due to interferrance from Jinder Mahal and KO takes the MITB Breifcase
8. WWE Championship: AJ Styles (c) vs Samoa Joe
I would love to see Joe with the strap. Unless AJ is taking some time off, I dont see AJ dropping it. They are building AJ as the FACE of SDL.
WINNER: AJ Styles retains
9. RAW Women's Championship: Alexa Bliss (c) vs. Ronda Rousey
Rousey wins this. Nia possible interferrance? To set up Rousey vs Charlotte at Mania.
WINNER: NEW CHAMPION Ronda Rousey
10. Universal Heavyweight Championship: Brock Lesnar (c) vs Roman Reigns
Look at the KO vs Strowman match outcomes. With Brock leaving for 6 months for his UFC fight, he will be out till at least Royal Rumble surprise entrant or Mania. Lesnar and Reigns will not walk out with the strap. it can go either way but i think best booking is HEEL vs FACE. KO vs Reigns. KO beats Strowman. Reigns beats Lesnar, celebrates and while he celebrates KO cashes in on a battered champ and KO takes the title from Reigns to set up KO vs Reigns with Constable Corbin inserted to help KO. Then Reigns goes into Corbin fued with the strap.
WINNER: Reigns with KO cashing in the MITB briefcase and stealing the title from him.
LONG SHOW! They gotta stop this 7 hour crap! Enjoy watching guys!
