They still have a lot to cover. We are less than two weeks away from Summerslam and the card is starting to fill up. A handful of the card’s matches have already been confirmed, though most of them are top matches for major titles. That leaves a lot of room left on the show to fill up and WWE is running out of time. While matches still need to be announced, we may know what to expect.
According to the Wrestling Observer Newsletter, there are several matches that WWE has in mind for the pay per view which will be announced in the coming days. These matches include the IIconics vs. the Kabuki Warriors (and perhaps Mandy Rose and Sonya Deville) for the SmackDown Tag Team Titles, the Revival vs. the Usos for the Raw Tag Team Titles, the New Day vs. Samoa Joe and Elias for the SmackDown Tag Team Titles, AJ Styles vs. Ricochet for the United States Title and Shinsuke Nakamura vs. Ali for the Intercontinental Title. There is no word on when these matches will be announced.
One match is already set. Check out a World Title match being confirmed:
Opinion: Most of these matches have been set up in advance and it would make sense to have a few of them added to the show. Summerslam is going to be a very long night and it is going to need a lot of matches to really fill in all that time. If nothing else though, a list like this shows you just how many titles the company has. There are going to be far more title matches on the show than non-title matches and that might not be the best idea in the world.
Which of these matches sounds best? What else should be added? Let us know in the comments below.
