It’s almost time for one of the biggest WWE events of the year! SummerSlam 2019 takes place at Scotiabank Arena in Toronto on Sunday, August 11th. Second only to Wrestlemania in terms of pay-per-view hype and attention, this is SummerSlam’s first year away from its home in Brooklyn in a while. So what can we expect from our favorite WWE Superstars at the home of the Toronto Raptors? The event is still shaping up, but here’s a look at the WWE SummerSlam match card so far, as well as a few predictions from our end.

SummerSlam 2019 Match Card
Brock Lesnar vs. Seth Rollins for the Universal Championship
It’s a Wrestlemania 35 rematch! We were surprised that Rollins dropped the title at Extreme Rules, but we shouldn’t have been… because we knew that Lesnar would eventually cash in that Money in the Bank contract. The Architect’s loss last month just set up the Beast for an even bigger – potentially main event – match at SummerSlam. Rollins wasted no time earning this rematch on Raw the day after Extreme Rules by winning a 10-man battle royal. He wants that belt back and we think he’ll get it. SummerSlam is just a really big PPV event (and there aren’t any others coming up soon) and Rollins will use this stage to solidify his spot as the top babyface in the WWE.
Becky Lynch vs. Natalya for the Raw Women’s Championship
Natalya won a fatal 4-way match on Raw for the chance to take on The Man, which is honestly a breath of fresh air considering how stale Lynch’s feud with Lacey Evans was getting. Natalya has challenged Lynch to make this a submission match and that’s no doubt going to happen too. These two just keep adding to the friction with social media trash talk and promos each week. After Lynch’s back-to-back matches with Alexa Bliss and Nikki Cross on Raw this week, we thought Natalya was running out to save the Champ. Nope, she just locked on a Sharpshooter instead! Give this title match to Lynch though. The crowd still loves her and we don’t think it’s Natalya’s time yet.
Kofi Kingston vs. Randy Orton for the WWE Championship
It’s the crowd-wooing, lovable, former New Day member facing the violent veteran. These two have a long (almost forgotten because it was years ago!) history so there was some good reasoning behind Kofi hand-picking Randy Orton as his opponent. They’ve also got a couple episodes of SmackDown to build up this feud, so get ready for some intense action by the time we make it to SummerSlam. Sorry, we just don’t see Orton as champ, but the heel will give it his all for sure. Kofi should watch out for some underhanded tactics from the Viper though – we still can’t forget his Jeff Hardy ear-gouging days!

Bayley vs. Ember Moon for the SmackDown Women’s Championship
This one seems a little random, but whatever. Bayley is the people’s champ and she successfully defended her title at Extreme Rules against Alexa Bliss and Nikki Cross. After teaming up with Ember Moon in a tag-team match on SmackDown to defeat Mandy Rose and Sonya Devile, Bayley offered her partner a shot at the title. Obviously, Moon accepted. This is a good natured competition rather than a feud, but we expect Charlotte Flair to somehow get involved in this one OR some additional drama to be added next Tuesday. We think Bayley will keep the title at SummerSlam… or at least until Sasha Banks makes her return!
AJ Styles vs. Ricochet for the United States Championship
These guys have great chemistry in the ring and this match should be no different. Ricochet is hoping to win back his title back after losing it to Styles at Extreme Rules. And heck, why not make some room at the top of the card for this former NXT star? Ricochet takes this one.
Kevin Owens vs. Shane McMahon
It doesn’t sound like much, but this much-loved feud has resulted in a fun twist for their SummerSlam match: If KO loses, he quits the WWE. The Miz couldn’t defeat McMahon once and for all, so let’s see if newly beloved babyface Owens can. We’ve said it before, but we’ll have our fingers crossed that, this time, McMahon will exit the ring for good. Or at least for a few months… Get it, KO.
Bray Wyatt vs. Finn Balor
This match might be a good one, but it doesn’t have a whole lot of weight behind it. Balor was just out of commission – hospitalized with the stomach flu – but he claims he’s going to be ready for SummerSlam. Still, he’s scheduled to take some time off afterwards, so based on that, we don’t know if he’ll win this one The very scary-looking Wyatt will be there as his alter-ego of “The Fiend” but who knows if Balor will turn up as “The Demon,” particularly if there’s not much on the line? We wanted Balor to be truly great and move up in the ranks, but it looks like that’s not happening any time soon, so we’re giving it to Wyatt.
Roman Reigns vs. ???
Keep an eye out for an appearance by the Big Dog. After Samoa Joe’s very personal trash talking, we could very well see these two in the ring together…
SummerSlam takes place on Sunday, August 11th at Scotiabank Arena in Toronto Canada. The main card starts at 7PM EST with a kickoff show beginning at 5PM. Get tickets, stream it on the WWE Network, or watch it on Pay-Per-View!
