    And I'll delete my post if you'll do the same and this won't have happened.

    Wonder who Ambrose will defend the title against? Presumably Styles, Cena, Wyatt will be busy with other matches. Del Rio seems like last legitimate contender he could face

    Every chance there'll be a cross-brand match with Rollins or Reigns.

    Hardly when they had a clean finish

    Makes a joke of the brand split if they immediately start doing cross brand matches just because

    Really think the main title is staying on Smackdown for long?

    I'd have thought it's there to help legitimize the brand, and give Raw the new title whatever it is

    Same as was done in 2002 with Lesnar/HHH

    That poster is missing someone very important! :pac:

    Who now for Reigns I wonder?


  • Registered Users Posts: 1,134 ✭✭✭correction


    Can't really see any possible contender for Ambrose at SummerSlam other than Bray which I'm not particularly interested in but the rest of the card is shaping up to be strong enough to carry a bland title match. RAW's main event (won't spoil anything), Cena vs. Styles (presumably) and Lesnar vs. Orton are all matches that could be great that I'm really interested in so I can live with Ambrose vs. Wyatt.

    Del Rio is a possibility and I actually would prefer that but with talk of him leaving soon and being buried in general I can't see a sudden push like that.

    I think it will be ambrose vs AJ vs cena and possibly bray as well as the smackdown main event

    He's outta of the title picture lost clean two nights in a row so the Superman persona has faded a little. Putting him in a feud where the fans can get behind him might help, against someone like Sheamus.

    Unless WWE have lost faith in him.

    He needs to go heel though. Zayn seems a good choice IMO. He's the most face of the faces. Not that Reigns would need much to get heat.

    Finn vs. Seth, to quote Good 'Ol J.R will be a slobberknocker.

    Have a feeling Rusev. He hinted he wants a bigger challenge.


  • Registered Users Posts: 17,895 ✭✭✭✭paulie21


    Sasha v Charlotte for title confirmed

    I'd like to see him vs Zayn or Cesaro but you might be right.

    So we have Ambrose Vs. Ziggler for WWE WHC

    Cena and Styles likely to battle again too

    Obviously these stories have yet to develop in the direction of Summerslam, but in terms of the card alone, with those 3 matches, the Orton v Lesnar and Sasha v Charlotte, that is a pretty epic looking card. Life after Roman.


  • Registered Users Posts: 7,731 ✭✭✭SureYWouldntYa


    This card is looking absolutely unreal

    Hopefully it's as good as or better than the best Summerslam, 2002. Such a well paced ppv, with very little filler, should be the template for all good ppvs minus Mania


  • Registered Users Posts: 48,990 ✭✭✭✭Lithium93_


    Seth Rollins vs Finn Balor for the WWE universal Championship

    Dean Ambrose (c) vs Dolph Ziggler for the WWE Championship

    Charlotte vs Sasha Banks (c) for the WWE Women’s Championship

    Apollo Crews vs The Miz (c) for the Intercontinental Championship

    John Cena vs AJ Styles

    Brock Lesnar vs Randy Orton


  • Moderators, Sports Moderators Posts: 42,445 Mod ✭✭✭✭Lord TSC


    Thats a savage looking card, in fairness...


  • Registered Users Posts: 48,990 ✭✭✭✭Lithium93_


    Could be the best Summerslam ever, well one of the best...

    Oh and just a reminder it has a special start time in America, 7 Eastern, 4 Pacific, so that'd be midnight our time.

    Looking like it'll be a four hour plus card. Can't bloody wait.
