WWE SummerSlam 2018 Predictions!

Summerslam

Written by Jordan Stynes (@prostynes)

With Summerslam coming up this Sunday, I have decided to give my predictions of who will win the big matches and also explain why I think everybody should watch Kevin Owens this weekend.

FINN BALOR VS BARON CORBIN

A match I have very little interest in. It is such a shame that at Summerslam two years ago Balor won the Universal Championship by defeating Seth Rollins and every year since he has just sank more and more into the midcard. I kind of like Corbin’s “Constable” gimmick and he has been a good heel to Angles face authority figure. I think Balor has to win this match.

Winner – Finn Balor

US CHAMPIONSHIP – SHINSUKE NAKAMURA (c) VS JEFF HARDY

This one is quite easy to call. Shinsuke wins due to some interference by Randy Orton. They really should have made this a triple threat match. Maybe they are just stalling to prolong this storyline?

WINNER – Shinsuke Nakamura

SMACKDOWN WOMEN’S CHAMPIONSHIP – CARMELLA (c) VS CHARLOTTE VS BECKY LYNCH.

This is a tricky one to call. Carmella is not retaining, that’s for sure. But who wins, Becky or Charlotte? Becky should win because she has spent the last few months winning matches and earning a title match. Charlotte had been injured for a while and recently made a comeback. She does not deserve to even be in this match but I think she will win. She will turn on Becky during the match and they will begin feud leading to a match a EVOLUTION.

WINNER – Charlotte

IC CHAMPIONSHIP MATCH – DOLPH ZIGGLER( c) VS SETH ROLLINS

I think this match is going to be messy. There will be lots of interference by McIntyre and Ambrose. I have heard some people say that Ambrose will turn on Rollins and cost Rollins the match. I don’t see that happening. I think Ambrose will keep McIntyre at bay and Rollins will get the win. Then on the following Raw or some time soon Ambrose will turn on Rollins.

WINNER – Seth Rollins

MITB CONTRACT MATCH – BRAUN STROWMAN VS KEVIN OWENS

I think this match will have a huge effect on how the Main Event turns out. I really believe the winner of this match is walking out of Summerslam as Universal Champion.

WINNER – See End of Article

 

RAW WOMEN’S CHAMPIONSHIP – RONDA ROUSEY VS ALEXA BLISS (c)

This match should not last anymore than 5 minutes. Ronda needs to destroy Alexa. Alexa should have very little offense if any. Ronda took out four “Highly Trained” security guards on Raw, she should have no problem with Alexa.

WINNER – Ronda Rousey

THE MIZ VS DANIEL BRYAN

This should be a decent match and is abit hard to call. I’m going to go out on a limb and say The Miz wins CLEAN! I have a sneaky feeling that Daniel Bryan is not going to resign with WWE. I think he might just have been  getting that final rub from WWE this past few months and will go work some Indie promotions and NJPW(maybe).

WINNER – The Miz

WWE TITLE – AJ STYLES (c) VS SAMOA JOE

This should be Match of the Night. Let these two go 20+ minutes and watch the magic happen. I’m going to make another big call and say  that Joe will beat AJ. I think that at some point of the match Joe does/says something to piss AJ off and his emotions cost him his Title.

WINNER – Samoa Joe

UNIVERSAL CHAMPIONSHIP – BROCK LESNAR (c) VS ROMAN REIGNS

This is 100% going on last and the crowd will 100% turn on it. These two will beat the holy hell out of each other as they always do.

Now this is where things get Interesting. I can’t call who wins this match, but I don’t think either man are leaving with the Championship. I think either Brock or Roman drag there broken body up to celebrate when suddenly either Braun Strowman’s or Kevin Owens music hits and one of them comes running down clutching the MITB briefcase and wins the Universal Championship. This would send the crowd home happy and another one of WWE’s major PPVs would not end with the crowd ready to riot.

WINNER: I HAVE NO IDEA!

CHAMPION AT THE END OF IT ALL: Braun Strowman or Kevin Owens

Raw 28th May
