The following matches are advertised for WWE SummerSlam, which takes place on August 11 in Toronto, Ontario at Scotiabank Arena, Toronto, Canada.
-Brock Lesnar vs. Seth Rollins for the WWE Universal Championship.
-Kofi Kingston vs Randy Orton for the WWE Championship.
-Becky Lynch vs. Natalya for the Raw Women’s Championship.
-Bayley vs. Ember Moon for the Smackdown Women’s Championship.
-AJ Styles vs. Ricochet for the U.S. Championship.
-Kevin Owens vs. Shane McMahon (Owens must quit WWE if he loses).
-“The Fiend” Bray Wyatt vs. Finn Balor.
Powell’s POV: WWE added the U.S. Championship match on Raw when Ricochet won a gauntlet match to earn his rematch with Styles. SummerSlam is coming together nicely from a lineup standpoint. It’s expected to be a long show, so I assume they will be announcing a lot of matches between now and next week’s Smackdown television show.
