    Re: WWE Summerslam 2019 Discussion

    WWE haven't wasted much time in building this one up. Based on just this first week of build (and some pre-Extreme Rules stuff), we have a few confirmed matches and a couple that we can safely guess will happen:

    Universal Championship - Rollins vs. Lesnar
    WWE Championship - Orton vs. Kingston (?)
    Raw Women's Championship - Natalya vs. Becky
    SD Women's Championship - Ember vs. Bayley
    Owens vs. McMahon
    Wyatt vs. Balor (?)
    McIntyre vs. Undertaker (?)
    Miz vs. Ziggler
    Women's Tag Championship - Kabuki Warriors vs. IIconics
    Reigns vs. Elias (?)
    Intercontinental Championship - Ali vs. Nakamura (?)
    US Championship - Ricochet vs. Styles
    SD Tag Championship - Bryan and Rowan vs. New Day
    Raw Tag Championship - Usos vs. The Revival

    And, clearly, that's a ton of matches. Obviously the Women's Tag Title match could easily be cut and probably will. I'm still unsure about McIntyre vs. Undertaker. We know Reigns isn't being left off. So I imagine Reigns will face Elias OR we will get Reigns vs. Undertaker while McIntyre is just McMahon's corner man OR we will get Reigns vs. McIntyre again with no Undertaker on the card. I'm also unsure if they'll run Rico vs. AJ in a singles match again but it's a safe bet they'll be facing each other in some capacity, whether it's a multi-man or maybe a six man tag. Also, not sure about Wyatt vs. Balor. I assume they'll face off here but it's also possible that Wyatt takes Balor out before SummerSlam and neither guy does anything on this card. Then, there's the matter of what to do with Strowman, Lashley, Mysterio, Joe, Andrade, Charlotte and so on... is it possible to get everyone on this card?

    Apart from Ali/Nakamura, potentially Orton/Kingston if that's the route they go, and new Bray, that would be a very meh card, esp since the last 3 you listed would be quite literal rematches from ER. Reigns/Elias? This is Raw filler abuse. Taker in a singles match in mid-2019? Yuck. Ziggler/Miz? Anything with Ziggler is yuck. I love Owens but that stunner looks batshit awful, and Shane has just been overexposed at this point. Ricochet/Styles would probably deliver, but we've seen this match like 3 times in the last 2 weeks already.

    Well Summerslam is usually a fun show every year, maybe this can be the same. The potential matches look..okay but we can see whether it looks better in reality.

    I'm pretty hyped for Kingston vs Orton. I feel like Kofi's reign has been dying for a main event level guy, and Randy is defo that guy I feel. Plus there's all the history of them in 2010 they could bring up and that'd be a lot of fun

    Re: WWE Summerslam 2019 Discussion

    Considering SummerSlam starts at 7E, and is probably supposed to run the typical 4 hours, is anyone a little confused about the small card?


    10 matches are scheduled. 1 of the matches (likely the Cruiserweights) will be moved to the pre-show. Then we are left with 9 matches. Goldberg/Ziggler will not be a long match. Rollins is extremely "banged up" in kayfabe, and Lesnar matches are never long. I don't predict Trish/Charlotte to be that long, and considering Finn is going on hiatus, I expect Bray to kind of squash him.


    So with 9 matches (if only 1 of them makes the pre-show) on the main card, and 4 of them not expected to be very long in length, is there something we're missing here?


    For reference, 2018's SummerSlam had 13 matches.

    there's almost certainly going to be a Roman segment turn into match on the show.

    If this tells you anything....

    Preshow starts at 5 my time, which is also when they are starting to let people in. So either we are gonna have a repeat of Miz and the hardys competing in front of no one from a few years ago, or there isn't going to be very much on the two hour preshow. Last few years there has been 3 or so matches, probably just get the cruiserweight match and then 9 on the main card, which is usual, there was 10 last year.

    May have something to do with the small card. Them cutting the preshow matches.

    Re: WWE Summerslam 2019 Discussion

    NXT TakeOver: Toronto definitely proves why Toronto why we are a wrestling town...I mean the fans were into the matches from start to finish and not to mention the atmosphere is why we should host future NXT TakeOver shows but then again I doubt SummerSlam tonight is gonna be as good as TakeOver was. Toronto we should definitely host Survivor Series, Royal Rumble or WrestleMania weekend next especially if it means we get another TakeOver. I mean the only matches tonight at SummerSlam that will be worthwhile for me anyway will be: Charlotte Flair/Trish Stratus, Kofi/Orton for the WWE Championship and Shane/KO if Owens loses, he must quit WWE

    My Network has really been dicking me around this weekend. It's been saying I'm not subscribed. Which yesterday, I believed might be the case, so I manually made the payment of $9.99. Today it's doing the same thing so I hope I can have it resolved by the time the main show begins. I guess if it comes down to it, I can always find a stream.

    Elias taking shots at the Blue Jays and Maple Leaf fans, he can't say the same for The Raptors. He better bring up Kawhi!

    Iiconics get a Title Rematch vs Bliss/Cross okay. Maybe the Iiconics soften up those two just right for Kairi/Asuka to win on Raw.

    Maybe not ha.

    Welcome Order.

    Highlights of the pre-show were probably Edge coming out to spear Elias and Rowan coming out to get revenge on Murphy. Gulak and Bliss/Cross both retained their titles.
