The following matches are advertised for WWE SummerSlam, which takes place on August 19 in Brooklyn, New York at Barclays Center.
-Brock Lesnar defends the WWE Universal Championship against the winner of the Raw match between Bobby Lashley and Roman Reigns.
-Alexa Bliss vs. Ronda Rousey for the Raw Women’s Championship.
Powell’s POV: It’s worth noting that there are scenarios that could lead to a singles match, a Triple Threat, or even a four-way for the Universal Championship. For instance, something could happen in the Lashley and Reigns match to make it a Triple Threat, and Braun Strowman could add himself to the match via the Money in the Bank contract. I assume we will get some indication as to where things are heading on the Smackdown side on tonight’s television show.
