    Summerslam WWE Summerslam 2018 Discussion



    It's time to get out the sunscreen and beach balls, as WWE presents Summerslam, airing live on August 19 from Brooklyn, New York!

    Join us in speculating, debating, getting sunburnt, and ultimately discussing the highs and lows of this year's Summerslam.

    Bryan/Miz
    Styles/Joe
    Rollins and Ambrose/Ziggler and McIntyre
    Lesnar/Reigns/Lashley
    Sasha/Bayley
    Bliss/Ronda

    I'd be happy with this as a foundation for the card outside of the triple threat, but it is what I think will happen. What are we all expecting/looking forward to see?

    Summerslam looks to be shaping up well. I'm excited for Alexa and Ronda. Everything Ronda has done so far has turned to gold. I heard that AJ will be facing Joe and to me, Summerslam is perfect for those guys to finally get to square off again. That will be the show stealer. And I really hope Lashley gets the nod next week instead of Roman because I REALLY don't want to see Roman and Brock again.

    all those look likely though not sure about Bayley vs Sasha. I imagine on SD they will also have Carmella vs Becky. Maybe Asuka vs Ellsworth, B-Team vs AOP, and Bludgeons vs New Day vs Sanity on the pre-show.

    Re: WWE Summerslam 2018 Discussion

    There's heavy rumours at the moment that WWE are gonna do an all female PPV in September, if so you can see them holding off Bayley Vs Sasha until then because when you've turned your back on running it since March, what's one more month of waiting.

    As much as I already hate the delay in this feud, I think I'd hate the delay even more if they dragged it on until September. In reality, is it that much longer to wait? No. And with WWE's schedule these days, it would probably only be a week or two after Summerslam anyway, BUT I'm still a firm believer in the big four PPV's being treated like the big four. The build for Sasha/Bayley whether good or not, on and off, has been happening for months. Whilst the quality of build probably doesn't warrant it, just for the fact of how much screentime this feud has taken both in the early stages and now that it has heated back up, blow off HAS to be on Summerslam.

    I'll be really disappointed if it isn't.

    I so want to see Lesnar lose the belt to anybody, whether it be Rollins, Reigns, Strowman, Lashley, Joe, or even James Ellsworth.

    Let's hope so.

    I'm praying Joe vs. Styles lives up to the potential. So many "dream" type matches have underperformed recently.

    Reigns will win, only for Strowman to cash in. That way there is a reason for Roman to continue to chase the title for six months with a new challenger. It's an endless cycle at this point.

    I am happy Styles/Joe has been made official. Who would ever have thought that AJ Styles and Samoa Joe would headline the second biggest WWE PPV of the year?

    On another note is it a worry that WWE have to again rely on stars built elsewhere to carry their show?

    Re: WWE Summerslam 2018 Discussion

    Rusev and Lana Vs Andrade and Zelina has been added to the preshow. Fine with that, it's been a fun midcard program on SD.

    I think the SD side of this card is really good. If we were leading up to a Smackdown only PPV I think a lot of people would be excited with AJ Vs Joe, Bryan Vs Miz, New Day/B-Brothers and then decent stuff with the womens triple threat, and the mixed tag. The US title match looks iffy because it's all been Orton/Hardy in the build with Shinsuke the afterthought.

    The Raw side of things is where it's let down and looks like Extreme Rules 2.0. I'm into Alexa/Ronda, and Brock/Roman at least holds some interest in how they book the finish and Heyman's involvement, but Seth Vs Ziggler, Braun Vs Owens and Finn Vs Corbin all happening again with less interest than before? It's fucking treadmill booking. They're having a match because they had a match last month and they need to fill time. Why would anyone care about who wins the Corbin/Balor match? SD has actually tried fresh feuds and giving everything meaning, Raw is just spinning it's wheels and that's before they book something unappealing with the B-Team.

    There is literally no reason anyone should care who wins between Balor and Corbin.

    And I think treadmill booking is an accurate description of Raw in general since Mania.

    Just an update on our Summerslam Roundtable - There's a few slots open for anyone else who may be interested. Shoot me a message and let me know if you'd like a slot.

    EDIT: As of writing, we've got the preferable amount, however I can squeeze one more name in if someone desperately wants in.

    I like him. He's better than Sam Roberts, Booker and King. Not that they are high standards

    It's fucking criminal that they couldn't fit Almas and Rusev on the Main Card of Summerslam tonight.

    I don't get why they couldn't do Rusev vs Almas instead of this. That sounds like an awesome match to have on the show.

    I don't get why they have to advertise Roman Reigns vs Brock Lesnar during the middle of the match.
