WWE SummerSlam 2017 Spoilers

Universal Championship Match: TBD Champion (c) vs. Roman Reigns

While I would be totally down for seeing Samoa Joe defeat Brock Lesnar to set up a match against Roman Reigns, I don't expect that to happen at all. I fully expect to see Brock Lesnar retain the title and I hope that this means the match between Lesnar and Reigns for WrestleMania 34 has been nixed.

Personally, I'd go with Reigns winning the title here. It not only avoids having no Universal Championship for most of the next few months, it also leaves room for flexibility in Lesnar's opponents and it cuts to the chase of what WWE wants to do, with Reigns as champion. Just pull the trigger and do it. There are plenty of people for Reigns to feud with afterward that can be interesting.

Just please don't do Lesnar vs. Reigns, have it end with some shenanigans, Lesnar retains and then you drag this out and do the WrestleMania match anyway. That would be the worst.

PREDICTION: Roman Reigns wins the title.

PREDICTED MATCHES (as of 6/20/2017)

WWE Championship Match

This is tough. I can see a few possible options happening and I'm not sure which one to go with as the most likely.

One possibility is that Jinder Mahal enters the match as the champion to defend against John Cena.

Another is Randy Orton going in as champion (after winning the title back at Battleground) to defend against Rusev, but is that big enough? It is if it's an undercard match where some of the other options are bigger and supersede it.

Randy Orton could face AJ Styles, if the latter doesn't win the United States Championship.

Then, there's the looming threat of Baron Corbin. Maybe he cashes in on Randy Orton and that sets up a match between the two.

PREDICTION: Randy Orton retains the title if he goes in as champion but we may see a cash-in. John Cena beats Jinder Mahal for the title if that's the match.

John Cena vs. Jinder Mahal

If this isn't for the WWE Championship, then I think it will happen regardless. If this is the title match, then in its place, we'll see Randy Orton start a new feud with someone (Rusev?).

PREDICTION: John Cena wins.

Kurt Angle vs. Triple H

Either this happens at SummerSlam or they drag it out until WrestleMania 34.

PREDICTION: Kurt Angle wins if it even takes place.

SmackDown Women's Championship Match

I don't think WWE will be able to resist putting Charlotte Flair somewhere in this match either as the champion or the challenger.

PREDICTION: It depends.

Raw Women's Championship Match

Alexa against Sasha, maybe?

PREDICTION: I could see the title changing hands, depending on who is involved.

Cruiserweight Championship Match: Neville (c) vs. Cedric Alexander

If it doesn't happen ahead of time, this looks like the direction they're heading.

PREDICTION: Cedric Alexander could win the title.

Raw Tag Team Championship Match

I honestly have no idea. We can't just keep getting The Hardy Boyz against Cesaro and Sheamus. Enzo and Cass aren't a thing anymore, so that rules them out. Yeesh...who are the babyfaces who could challenge Cesaro and Sheamus? Are Gallows and Anderson going to turn face to join up with Finn Balor to form a trio that could fight The Miz's entourage?

PREDICTION: We'll see.

SmackDown Tag Team Championship Match

The New Day will be involved. That's all I know.

PREDICTION: The New Day are likely going in as champions to defend against someone.

Intercontinental Championship Match

There are a lot of people that could be in the mix of this, including (but not limited to) The Miz, Dean Ambrose, Elias Samson, Finn Balor, Samoa Joe, Seth Rollins, Bray Wyatt, Big Cass, Big Show...

PREDICTION: I have no idea.

United States Championship Match

There are a lot of people that could be in the mix of this, including (but not limited to) Kevin Owens, Shinsuke Nakamura, Dolph Ziggler, Sami Zayn, Baron Corbin, AJ Styles, Mike Kanellis, Tye Dillinger...

PREDICTION: I have no idea.
