WWE SummerSlam 2018 Predictions

Image/Logo copyright of WWE / By Source (WP:NFCC#4), Fair use,

WWE SummerSlam 2018, one of the big PPV for the WWE where they usually have some of the major story-lines/Plots be wrapped up and also most likely where we could end up with a WWE Universal Champion that be able to make regular appearances, as long as Brock Lesnar isn't able to successfully able to defend his Championship, at the PPV. It's also another PPV where we could get to see Braun Strowman cash in his Money In The Bank as well, however, we will have to wait and see what happens.

So with that being said, let’s get on with the predictions.

Like in previous predictions, I will be following these rules/guidelines: -

  • I will be predicting only the current matches that have been announced so far at the moment in time, with the exception of, if I think the Money in the Bank will be used/cashed in.

  • The matches will be in Random Order as I don't know what order they will be presented to us.

  • If a match gets restarted due to some rule-breaking being found out and etc, then the restarted outcome will be considered the true cannon result and the previous one will be discarded due to the restart.

  • (c) - Refers to the Champion(s) heading into the match

These are my predictions for WWE SummerSlam 2018

Finally, we actually get to see Brock Lesnar defend his WWE Universal Championship and most likely be losing it as well due to his want to go over to UFC. Now as much as I may state that I am happy to see him actually defending the Championship, which has been a major issue for RAW (or at least I think so anyway). It will be sad to see him leave at the same time, as he is still a very entertaining Wrestler, he just had to show up more often and feel that he could have done more to help improve some of the other talents as well. I just hope that while on his way out to UFC, he does what's best for business and allows the payoff to his whole story-line/plot, that he is an unbeatable beast, finally come to an end.

The PPV as a whole, I think will have plenty of twists and turns that many, may have already predicted to happen but will have a few that will surprise some of us, which will make for interesting entertainment. I do expect to have at least 1 New Champion to be crowded at the very least but I could be wrong. So we will just have to wait and see what happens and they have in store for us.

So, please let me know in the comments section below, if you agree, disagree, and what your predictions are for WWE SummerSlam 2018.
