The road to WWE’s biggest party of the summer is coming to an end as SummerSlam will finally take place on Saturday, Aug. 5 and is sure to shake up the WWE landscape. WWE will present its second biggest show of the year, featuring multiple rematches, the culmination of a years-long storyline, and championships up for grabs. It promises to be an exciting night of pro wrestling.
Roman Reigns and Jey Uso will engage in Tribal Combat for the Undisputed WWE Universal Championship. After years of building to this moment, despite these two having faced off before, it feels like a landmark instance in this storytelling. Whoever wins, it’s set to shake up WWE programming as the fall nears.
Cody Rhodes and Brock Lesnar will face off in what’s presumably the final chapter of their series. Each man has won once, so SummerSlam should determine who takes this best-of-three. Seth Rollins will defend the WWE World Heavyweight Championship against Finn Balor. If the Prince wins at SummerSlam, every member of The Judgment Day will hold a title or something that provides a road to a championship, making this stable one of the most prosperous groups since the New Day. Drew McIntyre and Gunther will battle it out for the WWE Intercontinental Championship in what promises to be an intense match. The two feuded leading up to WrestleMania 39, and now they will finally have the chance to settle the score in a singles match that could be the highlight of the show. These matches, and more, will grace SummerSlam at a packed Ford Field.
Here’s everything you need to know to watch the action this weekend.
