Chris King jumps ahead to WWE SummerSlam 2019 and predicts the card we may see in Toronto next month!
This past Sunday at WWE Extreme Rules the WWE Universe was shaken to its core when Brock Lesnar cashed-in on Seth Rollins to become a 3X-Time Universal Champion! On Raw “The Beastslayer” outlasted nine other competitors (one of them originally announced as Daniel Bryan but then changed to Sami Zayn) in the first-ever cross-brand All-star 10-Man Over-The-Top Battle Royal to get his rematch at SummerSlam.
Natalya also won a fatal-four-way to become The Man Becky Lynch’s challenger for SummerSlam. We also witnessed the amazing debut of The Fiend as Bray Wyatt hit Sister Abigail on Finn Balor! Shortly after it was announced that Wyatt and Balor are set to do battle again at WWE SummerSlam!
On this past Tuesday’s episode of SmackDown Live, In a six-man tag team match with Randy Orton, Elias, and Samoa Joe vs. The New Day Orton pinned the WWE Champion clean. We also got Round II of Cesaro/Aleister Black, and Black won decisively. Also, Bayley teamed with Ember Moon to face Fire and Desire (Mandy Rose and Sonya DeVille. In their post-match celebration Moon accepted Bayley’s challenge for the SmackDown Women’s Championship at SummerSlam.
Last but certainly not least, Kevin Owens once again defied Shane McMahon and his myriad of corporate stooges and stunned the boss not once but twice! Below I will be giving my predictions for the rest of the matches to be included for SummerSlam.
