WWE SUMMERSLAM PREDICTIONS
WWE Common Championship Final Man Standing Match: Roman Reigns (c) vs. Brock Lesnar
Geno Mrosko: There have been so many occasions I used to be sat there pondering there was no manner Brock Lesnar was going to win a match after which he received that match. In fact, that was through the Vince McMahon regime and whereas I nonetheless have my doubts relating to how a lot management he’ll exhibit from afar, I think about fairly just a few issues, like random Lesnar title wins, will certainly be altering. Choose: Roman Reigns
Sean Rueter: If there’s a title change right here, it received’t be to Lesnar. Or Principle. Choose: Roman Reigns
Kyle Decker: Roman Reigns isn’t dropping the title but, not with Johnny Gargano ready simply across the nook. Choose: Roman Reigns
Claire Elizabeth: They’ve performed their gosh-danged stage greatest to try to make this really feel like a logical remaining chapter to a feud that’s blown previous at the least three logical endpoints however it’s simply not potential. It’s performed out, and at this level all I can hope is that the brand new regime will do one thing at the least vaguely novel, like have Reigns wreck Lesnar in ninety seconds. Choose: Roman Reigns
Cain A. Knight: These guys had an excellent match at WrestleMania 31 in 2015, however they’ve by no means come near reaching that stage in any of their quite a few rematches. It simply wants to finish already. Brock and Roman will do their typical finisher spam right here, besides this time will probably be stretched out with lengthy ten counts in between. Choose: Roman Reigns
Marcus Benjamin: Earlier than per week in the past, Brock Lesnar was my decide. However then actuality hit and I noticed no precise place to go for Reigns with that story. Lesnar remains to be a semi part-time dude. Grant it, Reigns isn’t precisely round so much himself nowadays, however you get the purpose. In the end, wipe the slate clear and use this time to essentially construct somebody who can credibly take this title away from the Head of the Desk. Love the man however that is actually getting boring. Choose: Roman Reigns
Stella Cheeks: Effectively contemplating the rumors that Brock is able to depart since his ole pal “Let’s pay Brock tens of millions” is gone I feel this actually is the top of the Brock Lesnar period. It’s been actual. Have enjoyable slaughtering hogs each singe day in your farm or no matter. Choose: Roman Reigns
Uncooked Girls’s Championship: Bianca Belair (c) vs. Becky Lynch
Geno Mrosko: Belair has had fairly the run right here, I simply surprise about what number of occasions we will count on them to maintain beating Becky. Choose: Becky Lynch
Sean Rueter: Doing a change right here in any kind would undo what’s been an excellent story (prolonged longer than needed possibly, however nonetheless nice). Choose: Bianca Belair
Kyle Decker: There’s part of me who provides like a 15% probability that Belair beats Becky in 30 seconds to return full circle. And that will be a method to give Bianca the rub absolutely again from final yr and ebook finish their feud with some poetry. Becky Lynch may additionally promote such a defeat with out problem. However this is without doubt one of the high work price matches on the cardboard in order that they’ll probably play it customary, although the ending not altering. Choose: Bianca Belair
Claire Elizabeth: Bianca is 100% avenging Becky blindsiding her at SummerSlam right here, that’s simply professional wrestling 101 child. Choose: Bianca Belair
Cain A. Knight: This one could be very fascinating and may go both manner. Alexa Bliss needs subsequent, however I’m undecided if that favors Lynch or Belair. Choose: Becky Lynch
Marcus Benjamin: Look. Bianca higher win. That’s all I do know. The story higher come full circle and be a contented ending in regards to the conquering face as an alternative of the treacherous heel. Choose: Bianca Belair
Stella Cheeks: This match is payback for final yr. Choose: Bianca Belair
SmackDown Girls’s Championship: Liv Morgan (c) vs. Ronda Rousey
Geno Mrosko: Liv received her second within the solar, now it’s time to place the title again on the lady they assume is the large star. Choose: Ronda Rousey
Sean Rueter: They’ll do one thing to guard Ronda. If it have been me, I’d begin a feud with Shayna Baszler right here. However irrespective of how they do this, the quantity of press Liv’s performed since Cash within the Financial institution signifies that WWE acknowledges the response she will get, and desires to assist her proceed getting them. So… Choose: Liv Morgan
Kyle Decker: I don’t assume Rousey wins it again right here however I feel they shield her sufficient that Liv doesn’t look spectacular on this protection. (Basically, I predict a somewhat brief, underwhelming run for Morgan based mostly on the need to guard Ronda all through.) That might be technically retaining by countout or DQ, however for the decide, I’ll go together with Liv. Choose: Liv Morgan
Claire Elizabeth: I can’t triangulate this one, to be sincere. They’ve managed to construct a pleasant little platform of mutual respect between these two with out feeling the necessity to do a full flip and I hope they preserve that going simply because I feel wrestling is greatest with shades of gray however so far as who wins I’m kinda stumped. I’m going to guess Ronda slips on a banana peel and Liv takes the win, however I’m not assured about it. Choose: Liv Morgan
Cain A. Knight: The story is that Liv Morgan is the underdog champ in opposition to the invincible Rousey. It’s professional wrestling, so meaning Morgan will discover a method to escape along with her title. I’m pondering there’s a disqualification or no contest after Bayley or Charlotte Aptitude get entangled. Choose: Liv Morgan
Marcus Benjamin: Liv cannot lose her first massive title protection. Can she? No, significantly, I’m asking you. Okay, nicely since I do not know what you answered, I’ll simply decide Liv. Ronda received’t look foolish or weak in defeat, but when they’re really giving Liv an opportunity to run with the ball, she must at the least get defeated with out query. Choose: Liv Morgan
Stella Cheeks: In the event that they let Ronda win they will kiss any hope of Ronda Rousey babyface goodbye as a result of in the event that they thought Sasha stans have been unhealthy oh boy they ain’t prepared for the Liv Morgan followers. Choose: Liv Morgan
WWE Tag Group Championship (with Jeff Jarrett as Particular Visitor Referee): The Usos (c) vs. The Road Earnings
Geno Mrosko: I simply hope it’s one other good match. I don’t see a variety of motive to make a title change right here. Choose: The Usos
Sean Rueter: Been sensing a Earnings cut up for some time, which a loss would get us nearer to. But in addition sensing this will likely be a really crowd-pleasing, babyface heavy present. Due to the latter, I’m pondering Tez & Dawkins get one final run on high as a staff earlier than ultimately dropping the straps later triggers their break-up. Slap Nuts calls it honest and sq. right here for some cheers earlier than he will get booed throughout city Sunday night time. Choose: Road Earnings
Kyle Decker: How am I supposed to purchase Jarrett as some neutral choose whereas on the similar time, he’s bloodying up Ric Aptitude in a car parking zone? Choose: The Usos
Claire Elizabeth: Gosh, what a weekend for Jeff by god Jarrett, huh? God bless his carny instincts conserving him one way or the other related in 2022. Anyway, I may see this going both manner however what I need is for ol’ Paul E to slip a crisp hundo in Double J’s again pocket for the El Kabong on Dawkins and Ford. Choose: The Usos
Cain A. Knight: Jeff Jarrett can’t be trusted, and that’s excellent news for The Usos. Choose: The Usos
Marcus Benjamin: I’m selecting the Road Earnings. Once more. I do know, I do know, I at all times decide them. And I’m fallacious each time. However this match is both a breakup for the Earnings or a title victory since there’s no sense in working it again for roughly the identical final result. The true suspense for me is whether or not or not Double J sings “With My Child Tonight.” If he does, all of us win. He mentioned with tongue firmly in cheek. Choose: The Road Earnings.
Stella Cheeks: Roman isn’t dropping the title anytime quickly, however Uncooked and SmackDown each want some shakeups. Plus, The Road Earnings deserve this win. In fact, they may double down on the entire breakup factor and cut up the Earnings in the event that they lose however contemplating that they’ve like 4 viable tag groups that appears unwise. I assume, my Choose is: The Road Earnings in all probability.
United States Championship: Bobby Lashley (c) vs. Principle
Geno Mrosko: No thought why this match is even taking place. They actually didn’t want a time filler on a present like this. Choose: Bobby Lashley
Sean Rueter: A win right here eases the sting of dropping his cash-in later. And makes the pop for that even louder. Choose: Principle
Kyle Decker: So long as Principle has the briefcase, he doesn’t want the US title. Bobby elevates it in a manner Principle can’t. Choose: Bobby Lashley
Claire Elizabeth: Please on no account let Austin Principle even tease that he’s gonna have the ability to observe by way of on his risk to finish SummerSlam a triple champion. Particularly since his daddy’s gone and whatnot. Finish him, Bob. Choose: Bobby Lashley
Cain A. Knight: Principle has zero wins and 7 losses on TV since Cash within the Financial institution. There isn’t any motive to assume he can win. Choose: Bobby Lashley
Marcus Benjamin: The Principle experiment will get actually fascinating right here and after the occasion. My cash is on Lashley successful this match since, the person does so much for that United States championship. And I feel Principle has different points like Dolph Ziggler and AJ Types in his manner. Choose: Bobby Lashley.
Stella Cheeks: Your entire roster hates Principle. Bobby Lashley doesn’t need assistance to defeat a worm like Principle, however he’ll in all probability get it within the type of Ziggler. Choose: Bobby Lashley
No Disqualification: The Mysterios vs. The Judgment Day
Geno Mrosko: They’ve been giving Rey & Dominik a variety of wins in all this. Meaning they’re taking the loss right here. Simple arithmetic, people. Choose: The Judgment Day
Sean Rueter: Rey and the potential for Edge is a frightening proposition. My cash’s nonetheless on the staff with Rhea Ripley on it although. Choose: Judgment Day
Kyle Decker: Mysterios have gotten the higher of J-Day these days. If Edge goes to return to face off in opposition to Bálor, in all probability not greatest to do it after a dropping streak. Additionally, Mysterios don’t have a solution for Rhea Ripley. Choose: Judgment Day
Claire Elizabeth: Truthfully a part of me thinks the Mysterios are gonna preserve dropping till Rey provides and lets them do the Dominik feud, in order that’s pretty much as good a rationale as any. Choose: Judgment Day
Cain A. Knight: Edge just about has to return right here to beat the hell out of The Judgment Day. Choose: The Mysterios
Marcus Benjamin: So, Edge is coming again, proper? Choose: The Judgment Day
Stella Cheeks: I don’t know. Finn Balor is principally a loser however Rhea isn’t. Choices, selections. Choose: Judgment Day
Pat McAfee vs. Completely happy Corbin
Geno Mrosko: I really like me some Pat McAfee however the actuality is that this — he’s 1-3 as a wrestler in each NXT and WWE. He’s not successful this match. We will solely hope he adequately embarrasses ol’ Bum Ass earlier than taking the L. Choose: Completely happy Corbin
Sean Rueter: Ship that Bum Ass off to Beat Bobby Flay. Choose: Pat McAfee
Kyle Decker: Corbin is a step up from Principle, however nonetheless in a position to take a loss to Pat Mac. Choose: Pat McAfee
Claire Elizabeth: I’m getting simply sick sufficient of the Completely happy gimmick that my primary hope right here is that Pat kicks Corbin into his subsequent gimmick. Choose: Pat McAfee
Cain A. Knight: Let’s see, a long-time mid card man in opposition to the part-time wrestler. This one is clear. Choose: Pat McAfee
Marcus Benjamin: Bum Ass Corbin will get his bum ass crushed. Choose: Pat O’Mac
Stella Cheeks: This match goes to be MOTN. Calling it now. Choose: Pat McAfee
Logan Paul vs. The Miz
Geno Mrosko: I’m questioning if the ultimate three depend will likely be heard over boos or cheers. I’m pondering the previous. Choose: Logan Paul
Sean Rueter: Paul’s future will likely be fascinating to observe play out, however his current is evident. Miz doesn’t get the large bucks to beat celebrities at Huge 4
PPV PLEs. Choose: Logan Paul
Kyle Decker: Famend hero Logan Paul will vanquish the Miz in entrance of an adoring crowd. Choose: Logan Paul
Claire Elizabeth: Sigh. Sure sure, we have now to provide the competent movie star a win to kick off his contract correct. Choose: Logan Paul
Cain A. Knight: Let’s see, a long-time mid card man in opposition to the movie star wrestler. This one is clear. Choose: Logan Paul
Marcus Benjamin: Le sigh. Logan Paul ain’t singing a brand new contract, getting the Triple H level, and coming to SummerSlam simply to lose. However, and it is a massive however, he’ll get booed out of Nashville. Choose: Logan Paul.

That’s how we see the cardboard enjoying out.
