Monday Night Raw and SmackDown Live present WWE SummerSlam 2018 Spoilers

Universal Championship Match: Brock Lesnar (c) vs. TBD (Roman Reigns or Bobby Lashley)

Lesnar will face the winner of the No. 1 contender's match on next week's Monday Night Raw between Roman Reigns and Bobby Lashley.

Yeah. That's where we're at, which means the match at Extreme Rules was changed just to stretch this out for two more weeks.

1) Reigns fights Lesnar and beats him, and then Strowman cashes in to protect Lesnar
2) Reigns and Lashley fight Lesnar in a triple threat, and Braun Strowman cashes in to win the title and protect Lesnar
3) Reigns and Lashley fight Lesnar in a triple threat and Lesnar just retains
4) Reigns and Lashley fight Lesnar in a triple threat and one of those two pins the other one, but not Lesnar

I don't want:

1) Lesnar losing because of a cash-in, especially if he's not the one who gets pinned. He needs to just LOSE the title.

2) Lesnar losing because he already wrestled a match and it's unfair to have two in a row. Again, the whole fucking point of him winning against The Undertaker and beating everybody for years was to set up someone to beat him, and nobody has. WWE can't just protect Lesnar forever, because then he never put anybody over!!!

3) Strowman cashing in and losing.

4) Setting up any kind of Roman Reigns vs. Braun Strowman feud to come. They've had enough matches.

5) Lesnar skipping the event and WWE thinking that it's going to make people cheer Reigns if we keep stalling on this and repeating the narrative of "Reigns is here all the time and Lesnar isn't" which didn't work at all this year so far

PREDICTION: It should be Braun Strowman beating Brock Lesnar straight-up to win the title. It won't be. It will probably be Roman Reigns leaving with the title and some kind of bullshit that protects Lesnar in the process, or Strowman only winning the title through something that protects Lesnar and Reigns.

Raw Women's Championship Match: Alexa Bliss (c) vs. Ronda Rousey

This was an obvious direction at Money in the Bank, and it's now official. Bliss stands no chance.

PREDICTION: Ronda Rousey takes the title.

SmackDown Tag Team Championship Match: The Bludgeon Brothers (c) vs. TBD

There will be a four-team tournament to determine the challengers for The Bludgeon Brothers. At the moment, those four teams haven't been announced, but I would assume the most logical options would be The Usos, The New Day, SAnitY and The Bar or The Good Brothers. The optimist in me says to go straight to SAnitY for the most interesting match, but the cynic in me says The Usos or The New Day will win and SAnitY will interrupt to cause a disqualification and ruin the segment.

PREDICTION: Depends on who get the title shot.
PREDICTED MATCHES (as of 7/22/2018)

WWE Championship Match: AJ Styles (c) vs. Samoa Joe

There's a chance they go with Daniel Bryan for the sake of doing a match that fans will be super into, but I really think we're going with Samoa Joe instead.

PREDICTION: Samoa Joe wins the title.

SmackDown Women's Championship Match: Carmella (c) vs. Becky Lynch

Becky wins the title, so she can lose to Ronda Rousey at Survivor Series in a champion vs. champion match.

PREDICTION: Becky Lynch wins the title.

Intercontinental Championship Match: Dolph Ziggler (c) vs. TBD

Absolutely no idea. Dolph Ziggler against Finn Balor?

PREDICTION: Dolph Ziggler retains the title.

United States Championship Match: Shinsuke Nakamura (c) vs. Randy Orton

This does seem like the direction, right?

PREDICTION: Shinsuke Nakamura retains the title.

Cruiserweight Championship Match: Cedric Alexander (c) vs. Drew Gulak

Based off the previous few events, I wouldn't be shocked at all if this is completely left off the card, per usual, which is sad. However, if it is on the show, it's Cedric Alexander against either Drew Gulak, Mustafa Ali, Hideo Itami or TJP. Based off the momentum, I'm leaning toward Gulak.

PREDICTION: I wouldn't trust that this match is even going to happen, no matter who is involved.

Raw Tag Team Championship Match: The B-Team (c) vs. The Authors of Pain

Either AOP decimates Bo Dallas and Curtis Axel and take the titles, or The Revival get a temporary match and The B-Team retain.


The non-title feuds

Absolutely no idea which matches we'll see that won't be involving a championship. I'll add more to this once we start seeing a direction for some of these current feuds.
