Monday Night Raw and SmackDown Live present WWE SummerSlam 2019 Spoilers

WWE Championship Match: Kofi Kingston (c) vs. Randy Orton

The Viper pinned Kingston on SmackDown and was one of the people vying for a title shot, and they followed it up with a great promo on their history together and Orton using his influence to hold Kingston down from the main event. Big fan of this. Very much looking forward to this match, too.

PREDICTION: Kofi Kingston retains the title.

Universal Championship Match: Brock Lesnar (c) vs. Seth Rollins

Rah rah. Rollins can TOTALLY win the title back, guys! Look! He even beat Brock up on Raw or something! Remember WrestleMania?

And then he loses, probably in a quick match, probably that consists of nothing but German suplexes and maybe even just one F-5, but if they want to throw him a bone, the whole "it took multiple F-5s" deal we've AGAIN seen multiple times. Same shit, rinse and repeat, every single time with Lesnar.

PREDICTION: Brock Lesnar 100% retains the title.

Raw Women's Championship Submission Match: Becky Lynch (c) vs. Natalya

I actually thought they would go with Ronda Rousey, as I forgot that this was in Canada. As far as July 15th when this match was made, I'm hoping they actively build Nattie up over the course of the next few weeks, because she needs it. I don't buy ONE BIT that she'll be the one to beat Becky for the title, so they need to convince me otherwise and not make me go into SummerSlam thinking she only has this match because she's Canadian.

We'll see on that. Ultimately, the end result is still the same.

PREDICTION: Becky Lynch retains the title.

SmackDown Women's Championship Match: Bayley (c) vs. Ember Moon

Hey, at least they're trying something different, right? It might have come out of the blue and I might not believe in the slightest bit that Ember Moon has a chance at winning this title, but I'll give credit where it's due that it at least isn't another Charlotte Flair match or something.

PREDICTION: Bayley retains the title.

Kevin Owens vs. Shane McMahon

If Owens loses this match, his career is over. That means he obviously won't lose the match (or if he does, they'll just ignore the stipulation).

PREDICTION: Kevin Owens wins.

Bray Wyatt vs. Finn Balor

Remember how these two couldn't really get their feud off to the start that they wanted to before, because WWE wanted to stall and drag it out, and then an injury got in the way? Well, let's hope this time around, they go with Demon Balor right out of the gate instead of normal Balor.

PREDICTION: Bray Wyatt wins, unless Balor is in demon mode...unless they really want to put Wyatt over by having him beat Demon Balor, which would be neat.

United States Championship Match: AJ Styles (c) vs. Ricochet

Remember that automatic rematch clause not being a thing? The past few months have proven that WWE desperately wants that, because it's easy, but that the directive is just "do something else for that person to earn a title shot."

I can't help but feel a little underwhelmed by these two's matches together so far, knowing how tremendous they are in the ring and how their potential hasn't been tapped into yet. Hopefully, this is better than the previous three or four matches combined, especially because by now, there's no hook for me to want to watch it. I've seen it, I haven't thought it was a match of the year candidate that I can't wait to see again, I don't anticipate a title change, there's no gimmick attached and this feels more like it's just wrapping up Ricochet and pushing him out of the title scene to have an easy SummerSlam match that requires little effort to write for than anything that I should be excited about.

PREDICTION: AJ Styles retains the title.

Goldberg vs. Dolph Ziggler

I expect this to be EXTREMELY fast. But maybe I'm wrong, and Goldberg specifically wanted a match with Ziggler because he thinks they can wrestle for 5 minutes if Ziggler carries him.

PREDICTION: Goldberg wins.

Charlotte Flair vs. Trish Stratus

Once the idea of Flair having a big opponent was mentioned, Trish Stratus was the obvious answer. On paper, this is great. Stratus is a legend and Hall of Famer, and Flair is the preeminent female superstar in WWE. Whether or not they're able to execute it in a good enough way to live up to the potential is another thing we'll have to see.

PREDICTION: Charlotte Flair wins.

Cruiserweight Championship Match: Drew Gulak (c) vs. Oney Lorcan

It's a shame they didn't announce this further in advance to actually try to build something between Lorcan and Gulak more than a stare down at the end of the go-home episode of 205 Live.

PREDICTION: Drew Gulak retains the title.

Roman Reigns vs. TBA

So Rowan was responsible for the attack, and yet, as far as SmackDown's end, they didn't make a Reigns/Rowan or Reigns/Bryan match official.

PREDICTION: Roman Reigns wins.

POSSIBLE MATCHES (as of 8/6/2019)

Intercontinental Championship Match

This could involve so many different people, especially with the Wild Card Rule in effect. Shinsuke Nakamura against Ali seems like the most likely option, though, if this belt is on the line at all.


Drew McIntyre vs. Cedric Alexander / Elias vs. Chad Gable

I don't think we'll get either of these matches. If we do, it'll be McIntyre and Alexander, and McIntyre will win. But nope, I think these are non-SummerSlam feuds.


Women's Tag Team Championship Match

Alexa Bliss and Nikki Cross won the titles on Raw, in what I assume would have happened at SummerSlam if they had the time on the card, but they decided to focus on other matches instead, because titles don't mean anything if you clearly don't care about utilizing the talent on television for nearly an entire year after creating the belts.

Anyway, this isn't happening here. That's the point.


Raw Tag Team Championship Match

The Revival don't seem to be getting their rematch in any regard, and it seems like this isn't being defended.

Or....they could just have a match against The New Day and kill two birds with one stone.


SmackDown Tag Team Championship Match

Daniel Bryan and Rowan vs. The New Day seemed like a possible bet, but they did that on SmackDown and moved on to the Roman Reigns feud. I just assume this belt won't be defended.

Or...they could just have a match against The O.C. and kill two birds with one stone.
