WWE Championship — AJ Styles (c) vs. Samoa Joe: It would make a lot of clarity for Joe to be Styles’ subsequent challenger now that Shinsuke Nakamura has been dispatched from a pretension picture.
SmackDown Women’s Championship — Carmella (c) vs. Asuka: It should not take most convincing for Asuka to get another eventuality during Carmella following James Ellsworth’s division during Money in a Bank.
Intercontinental Championship — Dolph Ziggler (c) vs. Seth Rollins: Unlike Rollins, who clearly shielded a pretension any week, a heel Ziggler will approaching put off giving Rollins a rematch until a subsequent PPV. Elias could try to insert himself into a design to force a triple hazard match, though that wouldn’t make most sense. In terms of a stipulation, that’s usually a guess.
United States Championship — Jeff Hardy (c) vs. TBD: There’s not a transparent foe for Hardy yet, though he did not urge a U.S. pretension during Money in a Bank, so one contingency design for him to do so during this event.

But if there is a match, SAnitY is one of dual teams that make clarity (the other being The Bar).
Cruiserweight Championship — Cedric Alexander (c) vs. Buddy Murphy: There’s usually so many directions 205 Live can go, and it’s transparent that Murphy would do a extensive pursuit as a heel champion. This does not meant Alexander’s run should finish usually yet, though it would make sense.
Brock Lesnar is not approaching to contest again until SummerSlam, definition a concept pretension will not be shielded on this show. Ronda Rousey is portion a 30-day storyline cessation commencement Jun 19.
