|WWE SummerSlam 2015 Spoilers|
Undertaker vs. Brock Lesnar
This will be a huge match, but is it really the match that this card deserves right now? I hate sounding negative, particularly with my second favorite performer of all time (Undertaker) being at the event in such a rare appearance, but I feel like this is too late to fully capitalize on the feud between these two. Undertaker lost at WrestleMania. That's done, over with, and nothing will rewrite that history. If he wins at SummerSlam, it's for nothing. If he loses, why did they bother to do this anyway? I'm just not as thrilled about this as I should be, even though I do think it will be much better than their previous encounter and it should be fun.
PREDICTION: Undertaker wins.
[Title Unification Match]: Seth Rollins (WWE World Heavyweight Champion) vs. John Cena (United States Champion)
I have no idea why WWE is doing this match, whatsoever. I'm glad that it's a unification (or at least, seems like that's what they're doing), instead of just ignoring the United States title and having Cena get a title shot, but still...whaaaaaat? John Cena wasn't my top choice to fight Rollins, nor was this the direction I thought the United States title should go. If Rollins wins the US title, it better be eradicated, because it'll get lost in the shuffle. If Cena wins, I'll be shocked, and I don't think he's the right choice for the world title ESPECIALLY without having another midcard champion to offset it. I don't know what WWE's end game is here, but I really hope this isn't some dumb scenario where there's a draw and they avoid pulling the trigger on getting rid of the US title.
PREDICTION: Seth Rollins retains and somehow doesn't win the United States title through something stupid, rendering the whole process moot.
[WWE Intercontinental Championship]: Ryback (c) vs. Big Show vs. The Miz
This feud has been dragged out so much. At Money in the Bank, it literally was just a stall to take up time before Battleground. With Ryback's staph infection, the match didn't happen at Battleground, either. If it doesn't happen at SummerSlam due to some kind of complication, WWE needs to just abandon it. I'm not as excited about it as I was before, but I'm still kind of intrigued and I think it could be decent.
PREDICTION: Ryback retains.
Roman Reigns & Dean Ambrose vs. Bray Wyatt & Luke Harper
It's a shame Erick Rowan isn't healed from his injuries and able to participate in this. It would have been cool to see a third person team up with Ambrose and Reigns, particularly if it were Sting. That being said, I hope this match makes up for it by having a stipulation attached where these four guys can beat the crap out of each other. This won't be anywhere near as good if it isn't No Disqualification.
PREDICTION: Roman Reigns and Dean Ambrose win.
[WWE Tag Team Championship]: The Prime Time Players (c) vs. The New Day vs. The Lucha Dragons vs. Los Matadores
WWE must have had the mentality of tossing everyone into the mix like they do at WrestleMania, which I'm okay with, as with The Prime Time Players holding the titles, there aren't any good challengers for this to be just two teams. Poor Ascension—even in a match with pretty much every tag team in the company, they get ignored. This should be a fun match but ultimately nothing but filler, as I don't expect the title to change hands or anything important to happen. I'd love to see The New Day get the belts back or Enzo Amore and Colin Cassady to make their debut on the main roster and win them soon, but I'm expecting PTP to keep it until The Wyatt Family (either Harper and Wyatt, Harper and Rowan, or Harper and a new member) take it from them at Night of Champions.
PREDICTION: The champions retain.
[Elimination Match]: Team Bella vs. Team BAD vs. Team PCB
This was obvious, isn't it? Also, isn't it obvious that this should be quite awesome, too? Also, what a dumb fucking name, "Team PaigeCharlotteBecky". That's not a team name. That's just the three people listed without a space between their names. Come on, WWE, you can do better than that. Just for that lack of effort, I hope this match goes to Team BAD, but PCB has been pretty dominant so far, so I expect them to just win it anyway. Making it an elimination match makes me think that Team Bella will be taken out first, but it could be Team BAD that takes the first hit, too.
PREDICTION: Paige, Charlotte and Becky Lynch win.
Stephen Amell & Neville vs. Stardust & King Barrett
The Green Arrow and The Red Arrow versus Stardust and...well, King Barrett is randomly thrown in there, but cool! I'm a big fan of the show Arrow, Stephen Amell's the man, Neville's fun to watch in the ring, Cody Rhodes is massively underrated and I'm a big fan of Barrett as well, so I can't see anything but positives about this.
PREDICTION: Neville and Amell win.
Kevin Owens vs. Cesaro
This was definitely happening, so I'm not surprised it was announced. The only question is where it will be placed on the card. Does it get the bad draw of going on the pre-show or does it get a proper spot in the four hours? If this is given enough time, I could see it being one of the better matches of the night. If they screw it over, it will be unfortunate, cause these two know how to do a good job in the ring.
PREDICTION: Kevin Owens wins.
Randy Orton vs. Sheamus
I'm not looking forward to a generic singles match between these two, but I don't think that there's been enough to justify some kind of gimmick. As such, I'm hoping that we get two things, which I'm sure we won't be getting, but I can dream, right? Those two are that this match doesn't go on too long and that Sheamus drops the briefcase to Orton. Don't get me wrong, I don't want Orton with the case, but I certainly don't want Sheamus holding it. I can't in any way imagine WWE does this, and I'm just expecting a standard rematch with nothing special about it whatsoever. Lame.
PREDICTION: Sheamus wins.
Dolph Ziggler vs. Rusev
I'm very glad to see that they've re-added this match to the card, after it seemed like it was removed from the plans earlier this month. These two have been feuding for too long not to have them meet up here, cause Night of Champions is just dragging it past the point where anybody would care. It's unfortunate that Lana and Summer Rae can't be added in to make this a mixed tag match (and for it to be any good in that capacity), but at least it should make for a decent breather match nonetheless. Ziggler is one of the best in the ring and Rusev...well...Ziggler can likely get a good match out of him.
PREDICTION: Dolph Ziggler wins.
I'm assuming no other matches will be announced except for maybe something being added to the pre-show, but there's a chance WWE will even move something like Kevin Owens/Cesaro to the pre-show instead of adding something new.
Notable people not accounted for at the moment: Kane, Mark Henry, R-Truth
