This Sunday, the highly anticipated WWE Summerslam will take place in Brooklyn, NY. It is the most talked-about sports entertainment event of the summer, and some history-making blockbuster matches are to take place.
Lesner vs Reigns for the Universal Title
This rivalry has been brewing for quite some time, with Reigns feeling screwed out of the championship time and time again. It's no secret that Brock is not well-liked on WWE Raw. In fact, Kurt Angle himself has said that he is the worst champion ever (he isn't wrong). Lesner is a part-timer and Raw and its viewers deserve a full-time champion. Reigns is going to be laser focused on being victorious at Summerslam.
My prediction is that Reigns will win over Brock Lesner. It won't be easy and the match will be brutal. This will defintely be one that will be talked about for a long time.
Alexa Bliss vs. Ronda Rousey
Another rivalry that has been brewing for some time is Alexa vs Ronda. Alexa Bliss has been vocal about her disdain for Rousey, calling her an "overrated, overhyped rookie." Rousey has a lot of anger toward Bliss after what happened at the last PPV event. Rousey and Bliss have butted heads ever since. My prediction for this match is that Rousey will pick up the victory and become Raw Women's Champion. While Bliss is an extremely talented heel, Rousey will have enough aggression in the tank to overpower her.
AJ Styles vs Samoa Joe
This rivalry has become incredibly personal, with Samoa Joe talking trash about AJ Styles' family. AJ is a proud family man, in and outside of his WWE character, so Samoa Joe has definately gotten under Styles' skin. This will be a good match to watch. My prediction is that Styles will retain the championship, but it won't be easy. Expect this match to be brutal.
Bludgeon Brothers vs New Day
The Tag Team Championship match between those two will be a no-brainer. As much as I love the New Day (which is A LOT), I don't see them being victorious over the Bludgeon Brothers. This match won't last long, and it will be violent.
Braun Strowman vs Kevin Owens
This match is also a highly anticipated contest. If Kevin Owens wins the match Strowman loses the MITB briefcase. My prediction if Strowman wins (and I'm predicting he will win): he will cash in on the Brock vs Reigns match and become the NEW Universal Champion. If Kevin Owens wins: he will try to cash in on Brock vs Reigns match, but he will be unsuccessful. Following the loss, Owens will throw a temper tantrum in the ring, similar to the tantrums Christian threw in the past. Get the popcorn ready on that one!
Dolph Ziggler vs Seth Rollins
This will be a good contest. On Monday, Rollins revealed that the man in his corner will be the returning Dean Ambrose. It will be interesting to see what happens in this match. Something tells me that the ref will have his hands full on this one!
With how impressive Seth Rollins has been, I predict he will pick up the victory.
Carmella vs Becky Lynch vs Charlotte Flair
The once one-on-one battle between Carmella and Becky Lynch became a triple threat match for the championship when Charlotte Flair returned to Smackdown. My prediction is that Becky Lynch will win the match. She is long overdue for a championship win and she has the fire in her heart and eyes. She wants it more than Carmella and Charlotte, and she will show her heart in this match.
Shinsuke Nakamura vs Jeff Hardy
Jeff Hardy has been dealt some harsh blows since losing his US Championship. Add the returning Randy Orton in the mix, and Hardy's life has been a living hell. I predict Shinsuke will retain, but Orton will run to the ring and pick the bones of Jeff Hardy. This attack will be brutal and possibly career-ending (there have been rumors that the Hardy Boyz may be close to retiring from the WWE).
Finn Balor vs Baron Corbin
I'm torn between these two. Both Finn and Baron are impressive in the ring. It really could go either way with them.
Daniel Bryan vs The Miz
This rivalry spans several years, and both men are looking to put an end to things this Sunday at Summerslam. The Miz has personally and professionally attacked Bryan several times through a series of videos. I am predicting a win for Daniel Bryan. The Miz will get too cocky and lose his focus. Daniel Bryan will light him up with his "Yes" kicks and pin him with his finisher.
Rusev and Lana vs Cien and Vega (match is on pre-show)
It's the 'battle of the couples' with these two. While Rusev and Lana have been a dynamic pair in the WWE, Cien and Vega have been impressive since their debut on Smackdown. My prediction is that Cien and Vega will win. I like these two and they are amazing to watch in the ring. They have a bright future in the WWE.
The B-Team vs The Revival (match is on pre-show)
The B-Team is putting their championship on the line against the impressive The Revival. My prediction is that the B-Team's reign as Tag Team Champions will come to an end. They will cash in their rematch clause on Raw and win back their championships.
Summerslam will take place at the Barclay Center in Brooklyn and will air on WWE Network this Sunday. Don't forget to tune in!
