Summerslam is coming to you live out of the Scotiabank Arena in Toronto, Ontario, Canada, this Sunday, August 11th, on the WWE Network. We’ve got the WWE Summerslam 2019 match card, as well as our predictions and overall thoughts on the show for you to check out below.
Drew Gulak (c) vs. Oney Lorcan
Cruiserweight Championship Match
First up in our Summerslam 2019 predictions is Drew Gulak vs. Oney Lorcan. Though these two don’t have a storied history with one another, they have both proved themselves to be ruthless in the ring, which should lead to a barbaric battle for the Cruiserweight Championship.
But Drew Gulak just won the championship at Stomping Grounds and his vision for 205 Live can’t possibly be reached in a few short weeks, so he will do whatever necessary to defeat his unhinged contender.
Winner: Drew Gulak
AJ Styles (c) vs. Ricochet
United States Championship Match
Since reforming The Club, now known as The OC, AJ Styles and his cohorts, Luke Gallows and Karl Anderson, have been ruling Raw with an iron fist.
Ricochet has been doing his bring Styles’ astronomical ego back down to Earth, but won’t quite make the cut this Sunday at Summerslam.
Winner: AJ Styles
Becky Lynch (c) vs. Natalya
Raw Women’s Championship Submission Match
Natalya defeated Naomi, Alexa Bliss, and Carmella to become the No. 1 Contender on the July 15th episode of Raw, and has been hostile toward The Man ever since.
Becky Lynch, of course, responded in kind, leading to a rather cold-blooded feud between the two. Natalya decided that the best way to determine which of them is the better woman is to determine which submission hold is more lethal: The Sharpshooter or The Dis-Arm-Her.
Though there is no question that the Sharpshooter has been a reliable finisher for the Hart Family over the years, the Dis-Arm-Her will see the champ to victory.
Winner: Becky Lynch
Kevin Owens vs. Shane McMahon
If Kevin Owens Loses, He Will Quit WWE
In true Shane McMahon fashion, the stakes are high in this Summerslam match – for his opponent, not for him. If Kevin Owens loses the match, he will be forced to quit WWE, while if Shane McMahon loses, his only consequence will be the ongoing presence of his most recent nemesis.
Unfortunately for Shane O’Mac, there will more than likely be more Stunners in his future, as Kevin Owens has had just about enough of Shane’s entitlement and will be knocking him down a peg on Sunday.
Winner: Kevin Owens
Charlotte Flair vs. Trish Stratus
Determined to make herself a Summerslam match fit for a Queen, Charlotte Flair sought out the most illustrious opponent available – WWE Hall of Famer, Trish Stratus.
It took some convincing, but Stratus eventually agreed to the match, promising to remind Charlotte to respect those who came before her. But Charlotte will have more bragging rights than ever after defeating the eight-time champion on Sunday.
Winner: Charlotte Flair
Finn Bálor vs. Bray Wyatt (The Fiend)
When The Fiend escaped from the Fun House, he had one thing on his mind: pain. Though he also laid waste to Mick Foley and Kurt Angle, his main target has been Finn Bálor.
As The Fiend has relied on sneak attacks thus far, Finn Bálor hasn’t even come close to getting revenge, so he challenged The Fiend to meet him in the ring face to face.
But Bálor’s dreams of vengeance will not come true at Summerslam, as The Fiend’s quest for punishment is just getting started.
Winner: Bray Wyatt (The Fiend)
Goldberg vs. Dolph Ziggler
Dolph Ziggler has disrespected his fellow Superstars continuously since his return to SmackDown Live back in May, but took things too far when he superkicked Shawn Michaels himself on an episode of Miz TV.
Multiple Superstars attempted to pay Ziggler back for his indiscretion, but he managed to slip out of every situation he was put in, so The Miz and HBK devised a plan.
Dolph’s self-importance has always been his downfall, and it was that very lack of awareness that allowed Miz and Shawn to trick him into signing up for a match against Goldberg.
And Goldberg will be more than happy to Jackhammer him into oblivion.
Kofi Kingston (c) vs. Randy Orton
WWE Championship Match
Being the ultimate fighting champion (no pun intended), Kofi Kingston chose the toughest challenge possible for himself for the biggest party of the summer.
The Viper has come out on top of a feud with Kingston once before, and made it clear that he finds Kofi’s confidence going into this match laughable, but Orton’s previous victory was a decade ago, and Kofi Kingston has grown a great deal since.
Randy Orton is overlooking his competition and it will cost him a WWE Championship title win come Sunday.
Winner: Kofi Kingston
Bayley (c) vs. Ember Moon
SmackDown Live Women’s Championship Match
Bayley gave Ember Moon this title opportunity as a token of their friendship, and Ember accepted graciously – at first.
Ember ultimately decided that the SmackDown Women’s Championship meant more to her than being cordial with the champ, so she turned to beating her down instead.
But Bayley won the championship in the first place by showing a level of fierceness not previously seen from The Hugger, proving that she is willing to do what needs to be done to be on top. And it is this passion that will bring her to victory.
Brock Lesnar (c) vs. Seth Rollins
Universal Championship Match
Last but not least in our Summerslam 2019 predictions is The Beast vs. The Beastslayer.
From the very beginning, Brock Lesnar and Seth Rollins have taken a gloves-off approach in their fight for the Universal Championship.
The two have pummeled each other with low-blows, Curb Stomps, and F5s, but Brock Lesnar eventually had enough and got the last laugh with not one, but two savage beatdowns.
Through it all, Rollins never gave up, making a vow on Raw that he would put an end to The Beast’s reign at Summerslam if it was the last thing he did.
There is no doubt that Rollins has the fight of his life ahead of him, but we think he will help Lesnar remember why he is The Beastslayer when he takes the Universal Championship back on Sunday.
Winner: Seth Rollins
