Planned Top Matches For WWE SummerSlam




Per Saturday morning’s Wrestling Observer Radio, here are the planned marquee matches for SummerSlam:

– Seth Rollins vs. Roman Reigns for the WWE Championship

It’s not clear if Reigns’ suspension has changed those plans but that was the planned match at one point. If this match is still happening, then that sort of gives away the result of the main event of Battleground. They could have Reigns win the title back at Battleground or have Rollins win it and then have Reigns challenge Rollins at SummerSlam. No word on where Dean Ambrose goes from there.

– Sasha Banks vs. Charlotte for the WWE Women’s Championship

This has been the plan for months and the reason why Sasha was off TV for so many weeks was so that they could keep her fresh until her feud with Charlotte kicked off.

– John Cena vs. AJ Styles

The plan has always been for Styles to be a major player in the company and it’s a smart move to hold off on their return singles match until SummerSlam. Cena, Enzo Amore, and Big Cass will face Styles and The Club in a 6-man tag team match at Battleground.

– Brock Lesnar vs. Randy Orton

The only confirmed match thus far. This match was announced on Smackdown in the United States on Thursday but word leaked out after their Canadian airing on Wednesday.

SummerSlam takes place on 8/21 from the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, NY.
