SummerSlam 2021 Confirmed Match Card
Raw Women's Championship Match:
Nikki A.S.H Vs. Rhea Ripley Vs. Charlotte Flair
At SummerSlam, newly crowned Raw Women’s Champion Nikki A.S.H. will attempt to retain her title against Charlotte Flair and Rhea Ripley in a Triple Threat Match!
When The Queen and The Nightmare both verbally confronted The Almost Superhero on July 26, 2021, episode of Raw. WWE Officials Adam Pearce and Sonya Deville decided to make a Triple Threat Match for the Raw Women's Title official for SummerSlam.
As noted, multiple rumors circulated around the return of Becky Lynch at Money In The Bank, but nothing would show up at the end of the show. Becky Lynch was supposed to be in the title clash with Charlotte Flair who defeated Rhea Ripley to become the new Raw Women's Champion at Money In The Bank, but then within 24 hours, she lost the title to Nikki ASH.
Universal Championship Match:
Roman Reigns(c) Vs. John Cena
The greatest of the all-time is set to run a showdown with "The Head Of The Table" Roman Reigns at SummerSlam 2021.
After Universal Champion Roman Reigns flat-out denied the challenge of 16-time World Champion John Cena in favor of one from Finn Bálor on SmackDown, The Head of the Table looked to sign the contract for his showdown against The Prince at “Your Summer Vacation Destination,” SummerSlam, on Aug. 21!
During the segment, Balor was about to sign the contract, but he was attacked by Baron Corbin. Corbin took out Balor and was going to sign his name on the contract. As he was about to sign, John Cena ran down to the ring to stop him.
Cena then signed the contract himself and handed it to Adam Pearce. In a backstage talk with Paul Heyman, Adam Pearce confirmed that Cena will get the title shot against Reigns at SummerSlam.
SummerSlam 2021 Predicted Match Card
WWE Championship Match: Bobby Lashley Vs. Goldberg
Bobby Lashley Vs. Goldberg is almost a done deal for the WWE title clash at this event. However, an official announcement from WWE is yet to confirm the news.
Dave Meltzer of the Wrestling Observer Newsletter noted that while Brock Lesnar vs. Bobby Lashley is a match that fans want to see, it is unlikely to take place at SummerSlam.
On July 19, episode of Raw, Ironically, the WWE Champion won the match against Keith Lee with a Spear, only to be immediately confronted by the master of the Spear, WWE Hall of Famer Goldberg, who issued a bold challenge with just two words: “I’m next!”
Goldberg still has a WWE contract for two matches per year, which runs through next year. This will be his second match of 2021. The first one he lost to then-WWE Champion Drew McIntyre at the Royal Rumble pay-per-view back in January.
Singles Match: Edge Vs. Seth Rollins
Edge would indeed want to manifest the anger after Seth Rollins cost him the Universal Title Match against Roman Reigns at Money In The Bank. Seth Rollins who declared he wanted “next” for the Universal Title, despite losing the Money in the Bank Ladder Match, ran in through the audience and leveled Edge with a kick to the back of his head at MITB
After the bell, Rollins and Edge brawled through the WWE Universe. Now for sure, there is no Doubt on Edge wanting to settle the score with Seth Rollins. So, I would like to stack the Summer card with Seth Rollins Vs. Edge.
SmackDown Women's Championship: Bianca Belair Vs. Sasha Banks
Bianca Belair Vs. Sasha Banks is one of the best-anticipated matches for this year's WWE SummerSlam Pay-Per-View.
At WrestleMania, Belair defeated Banks to win the SmackDown Women's Championship, marking her first title in her career. For the time being Bank is inactive, but excepted to make her return very soon.
Raw Tag Team Titles: AJ Styles & Omos Vs. RK-Bro (Randy Orton & Riddle)
AJ Styles & Omos Vs. RK-Bro (Randy Orton & Riddle) is one of the highly-anticipated matches. Randy Orton and Riddle as a tag have left no stone unturned to allure the fans.
This would add multi-extra interest for the fans to feel it like WrestleMania.
Intercontinental Championship: Apollo Crews Vs. Shinsuke Nakamura
Shinsuke Nakamura Vs. Apollo Crews is a perfect pairing for a title fight at this event. Both haven't even held a long in-ring history in WWE.
As noted, Crews interfered in the match between Big E and Shinsuke Nakamura and attacked Big E, thus turning heel for the first time in his WWE career. The following week, after losing to Nakamura, Crews attacked Nakamura and Big E again, confirming his turn.
Since that time, there wouldn't be a big matchup between Nakamura and Apollo Crews. So, this will be a great and profitable match.
United States Championship Match:
Sheamus Vs. Damian Priest
I am also picking Sheamus vs. Damian priest for the US Title. On July 19, 2021, episode, Damian Priest was seen digging close watch at Sheamus.
Punjabi Prison Match: Drew McIntyre Vs. Jinder Mahal
Drew McIntyre and Jinder Mahal have started laying the groundwork for a potential match-up at this event. Jinder Mahal, Veer, and Shanky appeared to get a payback during the Ladder Match At Money In The Bank. no doubt, for McIntyre’s destruction of The Modern Day Maharaja’s motorcycle a few weeks ago on Raw.
Mahal battered his former stablemate with a steel chair, leaving Veer and Shanky to drag McIntyre out of the arena. This would certainly create a groundwork only to be confirmed for a singles match at this event.
