2017 WWE SummerSlam matches

Universal Championship -- Brock Lesnar (c) vs. Roman Reigns vs. Samoa Joe vs. Braun Strowman (Fatal 4-Way): There will be more than 1,200 pounds of mass in this match, which should be the main event of the card. Paul Heyman added a stipulation that Lesnar will leave WWE if he loses the title due to a Fatal 4-Way being unfair to the champion.

WWE Championship -- Jinder Mahal (c) vs. Shinsuke Nakamura: It was long expected that Cena would be the one to fight and defeat Mahal, but Nakamura beat Cena clean to become the No. 1 contender for the WWE title. There has been no build otherwise for this match.

United States Championship -- AJ Styles (c) vs. Kevin Owens: The fourth time they will meet with the title on the line in a televised match, Styles and Owens will do so this time with SmackDown commissioner Shane McMahon serving as the special guest referee. This one should finally result in a ... somewhat-decisive finish.

Finn Balor vs. Bray Wyatt: This feud finally came to a head Monday on Raw when Wyatt beat Balor clean and appeared to dump blood on him after the match. Backstage, Balor teased the return of the Demon King at SummerSlam.

Raw Women's Championship -- Alexa Bliss (c) vs. Sasha Banks: Though Baley earned the No. 1 contendership, a shoulder injury has forced her from SummerSlam. Banks beat Nia Jax in a No. 1 contendership match on Monday.

SmackDown Women's Championship -- Naomi (c) vs. Natalya: Earning her shot by winning a Fatal 5-Way match at Battleground, Natalya will look to win her first "women's" championship after previously being divas champion for two months. This match will likely take place on the kickoff show.

Raw Tag Team Championship -- Sheamus & Cesaro (c) vs. Dean Ambrose & Seth Rollins: Moments after Ambrose and Rollins reunited, general manager Kurt Angle locked in a tag team championship match at SummerSlam.

John Cena vs. Baron Corbin: Corbin attacked Nakamura and Cena came to the aid of the King of Strong Style on SmackDown by putting Corbin through the announce table. Daniel Bryan made the match official on Tuesday.

Randy Orton vs. Rusev: Not exactly sure who came up with this one.

Big Show vs. Big Cass: Enzo Amore will be suspended above the ring in a shark cage. This should be on the kickoff show, one would hope.

SmackDown Tag Team Championship -- The New Day (c) vs. The Usos (Kickoff Show): New Day won the titles at Battleground, so a rematch makes plenty of sense. There are no other tag teams on the show really deserving of the spotlight anyway.

Cruiserweight Championship -- Akira Tozawa (c) vs. Neville (Kickoff Show): After Tozawa surprisingly beat Neville clean for the title on Raw, the former champion gets his rematch at SummerSlam.

The Mega Bucks appeared to have everything going their way as both Hogan and Savage were down. Yet, at that point, Miss Elizabeth jumped up on the cover and whipped off her skirt uncovering attractive swimming outfit bottoms.

The Mega Bucks and in addition Ventura were astonished and apparently in a daze.
Because of the diversion, the Mega Powers recouped and could get the win.

2. The British Bulldog wins the Intercontinental Championship in front of his family and the Wembley Stadium Crowd – 1992

For a considerable lot of the more established fans among us, the best Summerslam ever is Summerslam 1992 from Wembley Stadium, London.

The card was worked around the way that a rising British star would have been confronting the Hitman Bret Hart, who coincidentally was his brother by marriage, for the Intercontinental Championship.

The match was sufficient to make the headliner of the show. The Ultimate Warrior would be going up against Randy Savage for the WWF Championship, however, they couldn't have had such a mark minute not finish off the occasion.

The British Bulldog, a previous tag-group champion who was gradually turning into a best single's star, was given the chance to speak to his nation in what was seen, even in those days, as the greatest wrestling organization on the planet.

As you'd expect, the match was a course reading presentation of expert wrestling and the pack were submerged in the activity all the way.

3. Undertaker stared down the fake Undertaker – 1994

The Undertaker's prominence all through an initial couple of years of his vocation was sufficient for Vince to transform the man from the dull side into a babyface.

Taker took to his new part splendidly, yet the same couldn't generally be said for Paul Bearer.
His look and general mien made him substantially more suited to being a foot rear area and a split between the two men felt practically unavoidable.

In 1996, Mick Foley made his introduction with the organization as Mankind. He was promptly tossed at Taker and started costing him signature matches.

Taker countered and the combine wound up meeting at the 1996 Summerslam appear in an 'Engine compartment Brawl' coordinate. This played off the idea of Mankind living in the engine compartments of the diverse fields the organization shot from.

The possibility of the match was to make it back to the ring and recover the urn from Paul Bearer.

4. Steve Blackman hits a flying elbow on Shane McMahon from 20 feet up – 2000

Shane McMahon has no dread. He's demonstrated that time and again, and SummerSlam 2000 was one of them.

Shane-O-Mac was doing all that he could to overcome Steve Blackman for the Hardcore Championship.

After a short time, the two in some way or another discovered their way up on the platform around 20-feet over the stage. Blackman could push Shane off the framework and through the stage.
To make this a significantly greater exhibition, Blackman hopped off the platform and hit a Flying Elbow Drop for the win.

5. The Youngest World Champion in WWE History - Randy Orton in 2004

Randy Orton won a Battle Royal to end up noticeably the No. 1 Contender for the World Heavyweight Championship, which set up a match against Chris Benoit at SummerSlam 2004.

Benoit had been having some fantastic luck, vanquishing Shawn Michaels and Triple H in two straight Triple Threat Matches and additionally getting a major prevail upon Kane.

Orton was youthful, however, he was quickly ascending the positions and was alone. Indeed, even without Evolution close by, Orton could hit the RKO suddenly to prove to be the best and turn into the youngest World Heavyweight Champion in WWE history.

5 Reasons Why Braun Strowman Should Win WWE SummerSlam 2017

As confirmation of this advancement, Strowman will enter the ring at WWE SummerSlam as one of three challengers for the Universal Championship.

Current champ Brock Lesnar is set to shield in a deadly four manner against Roman Reigns, Samoa Joe, and Strowman. To date, it's the greatest match of Braun's young vocation, and it's one that could set the phase for a long keep running at the highest point of WWE cards. 

In the event that effective in his match at SummerSlam, Strowman would make the following stride in his officially famous profession.

Would you be able to envision if the principal title Braun won in WWE was the best prize for the Raw brand? It's anything but difficult to suppose he could, however, does that essentially mean he should?

One of the most brutal rivalries in Raw history between Roman Reigns vs. Braun Strowman intensifies in this colossal Last Man Standing Match: RAW, Aug. 7, 2017.

Here are five reasons why Braun Strowman should win at WWE SummerSlam 2017:

1. The most over wrestler today

Notwithstanding whether he's depicted as a foot rear area or not, when Braun Strowman tipped Roman Reigns over in an emergency vehicle, he turned into the greatest babyface on the program.

Vince may endeavor to overlook it, yet Roman gets booed out of the building more than anybody these days and when Strowman put him on the rack, people in general right away experienced passionate feelings for him.

2. To make him legit title contender

On the off chance that the bits of gossip are valid, Roman Reigns is set to confront Brock Lesnar at WrestleMania 34.

Meanwhile, the Beast needs a commendable adversary to fill time before Summerslam not to mention WrestleMania. 

As the current WWE Universal Champion is traveling for some time, the WWE must keep on building up Braun Strowman as the most dreaded no.1 contender in late history. 

As the man that simply resigned the greatest name in proficient wrestling, Roman Reigns has a fantastic measure of energy appended to his character. 

If Strowman somehow managed to beat Reigns after what he just accomplished, it would consequently elevate him to the highest point of the organization close by Brock Lesnar.

3. Braun is the only man in the Wyatt family who has no individual glory

For the self-evident actuality, he has simply made a big appearance and the fight Imperial looks as the ideal stepping stool for him.

WWE, as we as a whole know, energizes new gifts for future speculation and for the present, they without a doubt as hellfire require another mammoth. 

Kane and Big Show have helped this spot for WWE over years and now it is the ideal opportunity for another face.

Braun has every one of the fixings to assume control and convey the inheritance forward. He is the man and is a genuine goliath amidst the ring. WWE should get this open door and put resources into him.

4. To give him THAT one win

Braun Strowman might be a standout amongst the most overwhelming whizzes we've ever observed, however, regardless he hasn't had THAT one noteworthy win. 

Yes, he's beaten any semblance of Big Show and Mark Henry in his run, yet they aren't headliner gauge stars any longer, and he needs greater scalps. Also, in the present current atmosphere, there's no greater scalp than a perfect prevail upon Roman Reigns. 

By what other means do you transform a creature heel into a star? Have him beat the person everybody believes is the divinely selected individual, and do it neatly. If not, Strowman will be taken a gander at similarly all different beasts are; they're prevailing, yet in a matter of moments they'll be merchants to the headliner babyfaces. 

It's happened to Rusev, Bray Wyatt, Mark Henry and the Big Show. Braun Strowman is much excessively capable, making it impossible to endure such comparative treatment.

5. A Monster Among Proven Veterans

Strowman's rivals at SummerSlam are Roman Reigns, Samoa Joe, and current Universal Champion Brock Lesnar. 

Joined, there are about thirty years of star wrestling background in the ring with him. Also, the eleven big showdowns won by the three men he'll square up against. 

What's more, if Strawman is successful, he'll have crushed every one of them three. On the off chance that that is not a genuine star-production minute, I don't comprehend what is.

3 Greatest WWE Summerslam Matches Ever

With a history spreading over more than 20 years, there have been many matches held at WWE Summerslam. This rundown will investigate the best matches ever. When taking a gander at what makes a match deserving of being on this rundown, I not just take a gander at what happened that night, I additionally consider the long haul criticalness of the match.

Take A Look At:

The 3 Best Matches in SummerSlam History

1. BRET HART VS. THE BRITISH BULLDOG (August 29, 1992 – London, England)

Bulldog was the local child with 80,000 fans behind him, yet he ought to be thankful that Bret had his back. In this baby face can you top this war, Hart drove Bulldog, who spent the mid year tranquilized up and wore out, to the best match of his life, putting his brother by marriage over before an unruly group.

2. Shawn Michaels vs. Triple H - Unsanctioned Street Fight, 2002

Six years prior, Shawn's vocation was finished when he fell clumsily on a coffin. This match saw him come back to the ring in a match against his previous D-Generation X accomplice. Nobody realized what's in store from Shawn in this match yet they presumably didn't expect what they got.

Shawn hinted at no ring rust and had one of the best and most severe matches of his vocation. This triumph for Shawn denoted the start of the second piece of Shawn's profession which was at that point lobby of-notoriety commendable.

Wrestling fans will be debating for quite a long time whether the present period of Shawn's vocation or the initial segment of it were better. To the extent I'm concerned, they are both staggering and we have been exceptionally fortunate to have seen the two times.

3. The Rock (c) vs. Brock Lesnar for the WWE Undisputed Championship, 2002

Brock Lesnar had the famous rocket strapped to his back after making his introduction in March 2002, obliterating geniuses with his brutal quality, while arranging an amazing undefeated record.

Winning the once-lofty "Lord of the Ring" competition, Lesnar was granted a one-on-one match with the WWE Undisputed Champion in SummerSlam's headliner at Nassau Veterans Memorial Coliseum. The titleholder at the time was The Rock, who was set to withdraw of nonappearance to proceed with his quest for a Hollywood profession.

Before his flight, "The People's Champion" guaranteed WWE was in great hands by putting Lesnar over in a hard-hitting, 16-minute war, coming full circle with a photo consummate F5 amidst the ring.

Randy Orton vs. Rusev Match Announced for WWE SummerSlam 2017

Rusev appears set to feud with Randy Orton for WWE’s United States Championship based on their interaction on this week’s Sunday Night Raw, a booking decision that some are viewing as a demotion for Reigns.

Randy Orton successfully defended the U.S. title against Cesaro on Raw. Earlier in the night, Reigns crashed Randy Orton's post-wedding celebration with his wife, Kim.

Wrestling for a secondary singles title is a nice change of pace for Reigns. He could compete for the WWE Championship for only so long before that arc had run its course. Reigns' wellness-policy violation in June may have hastened his exit from the main event scene.

It was shocking when Finn Balor beat Reigns on the May 15 edition of Raw to earn a WWE Universal Championship shot against Seth Rollins at SummerSlam.

Randy Orton is also a great foil for Reigns in the ring.

Reigns excels 
when he's able to let loose and get physical. His match against Brock Lesnar at WrestleMania 33 was the best of his career to date, largely because he and Lesnar unloaded on each other. It's rare that a wrestler can look stronger in defeat, but that's what happened with Reigns in that clash.The fact that Reigns was constantly feuding with superstars who received far more vocal support than he did, no matter what role they were in, destroyed any and all chances of Reigns being the No. 1 fan favorite that Vince McMahon so desperately wanted him to be.

When Reigns was paired against the likes of Styles and Ambrose, two of WWE’s most popular babyfaces, the creative team did him absolutely no favors. In fact, quite the opposite is true because Styles, a new addition to WWE, and Ambrose, the epitome of what a genuine babyface should be, were never going to be booed by the masses while feuding with Reigns. Ditto for Triple H (he always acts like a face these days even though he’s a heel) and Rollins, who is fresh off an injury that could have ended his career and earned him a ton of respect as a result.

Until WWE makes a concerted long-term effort to elevate its secondary titles again, it's easy to question whether Randy Orton-Reigns will help either wrestler. Plenty of U.S. title matches have looked interesting on paper but turned out to be underwhelming.

Assuming WWE still envisions Reigns as one of its top stars, though, this should be an interesting storyline to follow heading into SummerSlam.
