WWE Plants the Seeds for Upcoming SummerSlam Match


As seen at Sunday’s WWE Money in the Bank, during the Money in the Bank Ladder Match, WWE had a spot that saw AJ Styles and Nakamura square off in a little one-on-one action near the closing moments of the match. Bryan Alvarez discussed this angle on today’s installment of Wrestling Observer Live and indicated that this spot was done to setup a match between the two at a future date — presumably at this year’s SummerSlam.

As of this writing, the following matches are being rumored for the show:

  • Brock Lesnar vs. Braun Strowman
  • John Cena vs. Jinder Mahal
  • Triple H vs. Kurt Angle
  • AJ Styles vs. Nakamura

With WWE holding for back-to-back shows in a row at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, they are expecting to make this show as big as possible. Those events include NXT Takeover: Brooklyn III on August 19th, SummerSlam on the 20th, RAW on the 21st and SmackDown Live on the 22nd.
