The biggest party of the summer is here but who will come out on top at WWE Summerslam in New York.

BROCK LESNAR vs ROMAN REIGNS – WWE UNIVERSAL CHAMPIONSHIP         

Paul Heyman and Brock Lesnar ambushed The Big Dog on Raw after faking a break up leaving Reigns at a disadvantage going into this Sunday. However, with Lesnar going to fight in UFC, it would make sense for Reigns to finally overcome his rival. Watch out for Braun Strowman or Kevin Owens with that Money in the Bank briefcase.

PREDICTION – Roman Reigns (Strowman/Owens cash in)

AJ STYLES vs SAMOA JOE – WWE CHAMPIONSHIP

AJ has been champion since November of last year, but this is the biggest threat to his title to date. Joe has been dominant since joining Smackdown and would make a strong champion but I can see Styles overcoming the big Samoan.

PREDICTION – AJ Styles

BRAUN STROWMAN vs KEVIN OWENS – WINNER GETS THE MONEY IN THE BANK CONTRACT

Last month, Owens picked up a big win over Strowman at Extreme Rules in a steel cage match, although it may not have felt like a win as he was tossed off the top of a cage through the announcers’ table. I can’t see Owens repeating his victory here.

PREDICTION – Braun Strowman

DANIEL BRYAN vs THE MIZ

A match that has been 2 years in the making. After their ferocious arguments on Talking Smack in 2016, fans have been wanting to see Daniel Bryan return to the ring to beat the life out of Miz. I think Miz may escape with a lucky win to set up another match down the line, possibly inside Hell in a Cell.

PREDICTION – The Miz

ALEXA BLISS vs RONDA ROUSEY – RAW WOMEN’S CHAMPIONSHIP

Ronda Rousey has been showing how strong she can be, destroying Bliss’ private security on Raw. Alexa has been a great champion over the past year but this will come to an end Sunday.

PREDICTION – Ronda Rousey

CARMELLA vs CHARLOTTE FLAIR vs BECKY LYNCH – SMACKDOWN WOMENS CHAMPIONSHIP

Tough to call as Becky and Charlotte both hold victories over Carmella on Smackdown and the Princess of Staten Island doesn’t have James Ellsworth by her side. I can still see her sneaking out with the title somehow though.

PREDICTION – Carmella

DOLPH ZIGGLER (w/ Drew McIntyre) vs SETH ROLLINS (w/ Dean Ambrose) – INTERCONTINENTAL CHAMPIONSHIP

This bout will be determined by what the returning Dean Ambrose does. I’m convinced the best thing to happen would be a heel turn and that’s why I’m going for Ziggler to retain here.

PREDICTION – Dolph Ziggler

SHINSUKE NAKAMURA vs JEFF HARDY – UNITED STATES CHAMPIONSHIP

Jeff Hardy will surely be wary that Randy Orton will attack again and for this reason, the favourite has to be Nakamura. Surprised that this wasn’t made into a triple threat match to include The Viper.

PREDICTION – Shinsuke Nakamura
