WWE Championship Punjabi Prison Match: Jinder Mahal (c) versus. Randy Orton
Getting back the Punjabi Prison is equal parts amusing and awesome. What a terrific way to employ this current gimmick Jinder Mahal does. I really like it. The end result of the match entirely depends upon WWE’s direction for John Cena. Does he face Jinder Mahal because the next challenger for that WWE Championship (or perhaps in a non-title feud) at SummerSlam, does he proceed to AJ Styles using the U . s . States Championship, or does he make a move else entirely?
There’s a high probability we have seen either Styles versus. Cena at SummerSlam, or perhaps a Triple Threat which includes Owens. If that is the situation, then Randy Orton includes a HUUUUUGE opportunity to win this Punjabi Prison match, however i think he’ll be sold on by Baron Corbin.
Kevin Owens is not champion. AJ Styles is. I am too lazy to alter this.
U . s . States Championship Match: AJ Styles (c) versus. Kevin Owens
With AJ Styles winning the title in the MSG house show, the edges have flipped. Rather of Owens protecting the U . s . States Championship against AJ Styles, it will likely be AJ Styles protecting it against Kevin Owens. I figure the title change needed occurred for any reason which reason can not be “to own title to Owens at Battleground” or anything absurd like this, so I am using a retention here.
SmackDown Tag Team Championship Match: The Usos (c) versus. The Brand New Day
I’d need to imagine this is when The Brand New Day become champions, because the lame count out finish at Money in the Bank was a way to stall this feud.
Flag Match: John Cena versus. Rusev
This really is Rusev’s return match in addition to John Cena’s, but everyone knows who the larger star is here now. This really is Cena’s match to get rid of and Rusev will have to determine another thing to complete after approaching short.
No. 1 Contender’s Fatal 5-Way Elimination Match: Becky Lynch versus. Charlotte now Flair versus. Lana versus. Natalya versus. Tamina
The champion of the match faces Naomi (or Carmella, if she would money in) at SummerSlam. I must picture this would go to Tamina, because it appears like she’s the main one accumulating something with supporting Lana in fighting against Naomi. It’s strange how frequently they have booked Naomi not to defend her title on pay-per-views since she’s won the belt. Can you explain that?
Shinsuke Nakamura versus. Baron Corbin
That one is difficult. Will they keep Nakamura inside a strong position where he essentially has not lost yet, sacrificing some momentum for Mr. Money in the Bank and falling victim towards the same problems they have had before in which the man who supports the briefcase keeps losing, or will they give Corbin the win so he is able to start approaching an eventual cash-in
Pre-Show Kickoff Match: Aiden British versus. Tye Dillinger
I am glad Dillinger is around the card, what? How can this be happening? They weren’t feuding with one another so we have no Sami Zayn versus. Mike Kanellis match put into this mixture, which will be a far better fit. Very strange choice. It might have made more sense to possess Chad Gable fight Aiden British so we’d have Gable doing something.
The Fashion Police
In some manner, whether a match or perhaps a backstage segment, The Fashion Police are meant to discover who trashed their office..
Mike Kanellis versus. Sami Zayn
It required them some time to announce this, but a minimum of they finally did, even when it had been Wednesday night online. Strange. Anyway, this match will go in either case, but I can tell WWE just replicating the very same is a result of SmackDown and wishing nobody cares they rinsed and repeated..
