WWE SummerSlam 2016 Preview: Matches & Predictions
August 11, 2016 - WWE
What. A. Card! WWE SummerSlam 2016 looks like a mega uncover we all illusory it would be.
We’re all going to declare a dream compare that’s been 15 years in a making: Brock Lesnar vs. Randy Orton. RAW’s putting on a outrageous championship hitch that will climax a initial ever Universal Champion: Finn Balor vs. Seth Rollins. SmackDown’s commotion amatory WWE World Champion Dean Ambrose will take on a showstopper famous as Dolph Ziggler. And Roman Reigns will concentration on capturing a United States Championship when he thatch horns with a “Bulgarian Brute,” Rusev (CRUSH!). And finally, Apollo Crews will do his best to take a Intercontinental Championship divided from a Hollywood C-Lister, The Miz.
These are a predictions for a whole lineup of overwhelming matchups from SummerSlam 2016.
Rusev (c) (with Lana) vs. Roman Reigns (WWE United States Championship)
Predictions Winner: Due to Reigns’ Wellness Violation, he’s been knocked down a brace on a WWE totem pole. But it unequivocally hasn’t harm ’em that much. As a matter of fact, it’s helped him a bit some-more with a fans given he’s not being thrown in their face so much. Now they can stomach him a bit more. Rusev’s left behind to his excellence days as a contender torpedo alongside his manager/wife, Lana. His reason over a US Championship has been unbreakable for a while now, though his SummerSlam plea comes in a form of Reigns. We get a feeling that this compare competence finish adult being a dim equine contender for MOTN given both group are flattering darned considerable in a ring. We see this going one approach and one approach only: Reigns laying out Rusev with his one-two combo of a Superman Punch/Spear and withdrawal with a US Title.
Enzo Amore and Big Cass vs. Chris Jericho and Kevin Owens
Predictions Winners: RAW has been immensely interesting interjection to a disdainful signings of these 4 quick talkers. Enzo and Cass have finished good given removing a call adult from NXT. Jericho is on his whole “Drink it in maaaaaan” ish right now and Owens is still a friendly jerk we’ve grown in adore with. Enzo and Cass are streamer to a large city they call their backyard for a tab group hate compare with a dual Canadians who have given ’em hell. This one should spin out a plain matchup that hopefully gets rolling with some pre-match promos. We’ve always peeped how a WWE doesn’t unequivocally concede a Superstars to pullulate on a unchanging when they’re in their hometown. We consider that’s gonna be a box here. Don’t be repelled to see Y2J and Owens lift off a feat by sinful Canadian means.
The New Day (Xavier Woods and Kofi Kingston) (c) vs. Luke Gallows and Karl Anderson (WWE Tag Team Championship)
Predictions Winners: The Club have taken their force to new levels now that they’re a partial of a RAW brand. They came from Japan in hopes of appropriation some new tab group championships, that The New Day happens to keep around their wiggling waists. Big E’s been taken down and now both teams are evened out during two. The New Day have enjoyed a lengthy, ancestral and light encourage run during a tip as a WWE Tag Team Champions. But we consider it’s finally time for them to remove those championship belts. The fact that Big E’s been placed on a harmed list means Gallows and Anderson’s chances of winning are even higher. So we’re fixation a bets on AJ’s former using buddies removing a win here.
John Cena vs. AJ Styles
Predictions Winner: Now this is a marquee compare we’re unequivocally vehement to see. Their initial assembly during MITB this year was great, though we know they can put on something even better. AJ as a heel who enjoys BEATING UP JOHN CENA has been so fun to watch unfold. Cena is as heated as ever and he’s prepared to unleash his frustrations on his latest rival. This rematch is high on a prophecy list as a one hitch that will be MOTN. No question! AJ got one over on Cena when his boys helped him get a 1-2-3. But though his organisation intact, we consider Cena’s removing a satisfactory feat here and restraining their array during 1-1. Cena wins here, though they’ll jail once again in a special chapter hitch during SmackDown’s disdainful special eventuality Backlash.
The Miz (c) (with Maryse) vs. Apollo Crews (WWE Intercontinental Championship)
Predictions Winner: Do we unequivocally need to excavate into a projected leader for this pretension match? You guys all know who’s withdrawal a Barclays Center with a desired Intercontinental Championship. The Miz’s run has been a decent one, though it’s about time that a uninformed face gets a run with a title. And a uninformed face happens to be Apollo Creed…excuse us, we meant Crews (HA! We had to do it to you, Daniel Bryan!).
