Here Are The 10 Things that must happen at WWE SummerSlam 2017

#10 Finn Balor defeats Bray Wyatt

WWE SummerSlam 2017

WWE Raw is putting Bray Wyatt in bad feuds again and again. From Bad, I do not mean that they are meaningless, I meant these feuds are do nothing but just hurting him at the end. And now the company has put him in the feud with one of WWE’s biggest rising stars Fin Balor. He is the former WWE Universal Champion and may be also the future’s WWE Universal Champion.

Fans always chanted that Bray deserves better. But at WWE SummerSlam 2017, he will lose from the Fin Balor and this will add an another loss to Wyatt’s resume. Since returning from injury, Finn Balor is trying to continue rebuilding himself. Finn has his last feud with Elias Samson but that feud did not lead to the WWE SummerSlam 2017 PPV. Balor needs to get back on the track.

Finn Balor’s last PPV match was the Extreme Rule. That was a fatal 5-way elimination match between Finn Balor, Roman Reigns, Bray Wyatt, Samoa Joe and Seth Rollins. Samoa Joe won that match. Thus there is a need for Finn to make a triumphant return to the event ideally as the Demon. So that Finn Balorso can contend with Bray Wyatt’s mind games and thus pick up a victory that is much needed for him.

#9 Big Cass and The Big Show feud comes to an end

WWE SummerSlam 2017

The break up of the former Tag Team partners Enzo Amore and Big Cass is not going smoothly. After their break up, both the men having a lack of direction. The only work of Enzo us to rant and then kicked off by Big Cass. And on the other hand, Big Cass is trying to threaten him but is not getting much success. The dead eyes of Cass during promos are also not helping him.

The first solo feud of Big Cass with The Big Show will be the worst of all. However, it does not mean to be knock on Big Show. Although he is having one of his better runs of late after he is being put on some great matches with the Monster Among Men – Braun Strowman. He comes from a long way of the chant of Please Retire. That he was prepared with the days when he was with the Authority. But, as far as bringing the best out of the Bigg Cass, The Big Show is not the right man for this job.

The guys, who are smaller than Big Cass, Cass thrives on throwing those guys around. Big Cass is not as interesting and much entertaining in the ring as the Braun Strowman. The reason is that he is not as strong as the Strowman. So he has to go against those guys who are a bit smaller and those who really accent his size. There is a need to move Cass to another feud after the WWE SummerSlam 2017 PPV If WWE wants him as a major player in future.


#8 The New Day retain

WWE SummerSlam 2017

The New Day had defeats the Usos at WWE Battleground PPV for the Tag Team Title and again come back on the top. The feud between the Usos and The New Day is great. And this will be a perfect move for the WWE in order to spearhead the tag division for the time being. That’s why the feud between The Usos and The New Day should not be extended anymore. And should be finished at the WWE SummerSlam 2017 PPV. Thus there is a need for The New Day to leave the Brooklyn with the titles still around their waists.

In the WWE, This is becoming a theme lately to play hot potato with the championships. And also it usually does not do much to elevate it. No doubt that right now Kevin Owens and AJ Styles are in a barn burner of a feud. But the reason behind that is not to bouncing the title belt between the Aj Styles and Kevin Owens a million times. It just makes the things complicated unnecessarily.

But in Tag Team division, there is a need for some consistency. And the same can be achieved by allowing a particular team to hold the championship belts for a long time rather than only for one PPV. And also If the New Day loss at WWE SummerSlam 2017 PPV. Then not only their feud with The Usos will be extended, but also the longest reigning tag champs – The New Day will be made to look a bit like tag chumps.

#7 Neville retains

WWE SummerSlam 2017

There is no need to hot potatoing the title in this case. There is not any doubt that the Neville is the King of the Cruiserweight and a longest reigning champion on the main roster. But there is another reason to retain the title for Neville is that he – The King of the Cruiserweights should not be dethroned by the Tozawa.

Neville is the final boss of the Cruiserweight division, and also the Tozawa is becoming quite popular at the main roster. But if Neville lost his title to Tozawa then this should come to someone who is truly worthy of taking the top spot. While Tozawa is very entertaining in the ring and the Titus Brand has been gold as well. But Tozawa is just not the guy who should be won the Cruiserweight Title now.

To be honest, there is not the right guy present at the main roster who can hold the Cruiserweight Title at this time. Even the right guy is not present in the Cruiserweight division at this point. Like Asuka, there is no one in the Cruiserweight division at this time, who can match Neville’s level. No doubt that he has lost the strap, but at WWE SummerSlam 2017 PPV, it should not be the same. Neville is very much stronger than anyone on the main roster at this time. So if he lost at the WWE SummerSlam 2017 PPV, then it will be a much bigger deal.

#6 A Nikki Bella appearance

WWE SummerSlam 2017

How would be a PPV become a big PPV, if there is not any big return? There will not be a most overwhelmingly exciting return at WWE SummerSlam 2017 PPV, But there are chances of the return of the Nikki Bella at this SummerSlam. And this will actually possible. It should happen absolutely.

The last return of Nikki Bella has happened at WWE SummerSlam 2016(Last Year). That’s why there are much chances that she will double downs to her return to Brooklyn. This is not a wild speculation. Although it is not much, Nikki Bella jumped into the middle of a Twitter beef between her man John Cena and Baron Corbin. And Thus she indicated that she will be at the WWE SummerSlam 2017 event at the very least.


Does this guarantee that she will be making her appearance in the WWE other than just a quick camera cut in the front row? No, it does not. But at least it opens the door for the possibility of her return. Which was not clear before the case of the tweet. However, This the time who will tell about the return of newly engaged Nikki Bella in the Brooklyn, NY, next Sunday.

#5 Shane McMahon stays out of the Owens-Styles match

WWE SummerSlam 2017

The feud between AJ Styles and Kevin Owens for the United States Championship will be continued at WWE SummerSlam 2017. But there is one twist there, that the Shane McMahon will be the referee in their match. The reason behind allocated the Shane as a referee at SummerSlam 2017 is not clear a little bit. Although Kevin demanded from Daniyal the best referee that would not be knocked down by a gust of wind.

The problem with Shane becoming the referee is that, if all the wrestlers demand the same then the current crop referees would have to fire. Thus Shane needs to keep himself away from that match.

There is always some type of shenanigans take place when some special guest referees are allocated. But if any shenanigans involved Shane McMahon then it would be a very bad idea. He only needs to remain as the impartial Commissioner of the SmackDown Live. Lastly, we need that Shane screwing over either Aj Styles or Kevin Owens. And thus getting involved in this feud too. Keep the things the way, in which they are. And just let the Shane McMahon officiate the match fairly.

#4 John Cena wins

WWE SummerSlam 2017

John Cena will defeat Baron Corbin at their first ever PPV event at WWE SummerSlam 2017. You may be asking yourself that Why at this advanced stage of his career John Cena be racking up wins over the guys whom they could use much better than he could?” The reason behind this is that John Cena is not going to anywhere soon and also he lost his match for No. 1 contender ship match to Shinsuke Nakamura clean. And if he lost again clean to Corbin then it would begin to deteriorate his aura.

In WWE, John Cena famous as one of the most unstoppable forces. That is the reason why the clean lost to others like Shinsuke is a big deal. But if John Cena accumulates his second clean loss to Baron Corbin at WWE SummerSlam 2017 PPV in roughly a 3-week span. Then it would not feel like as big of a deal because the real story will be that John Cena has lost a step.

Adding to this, Baron Corbin is Mr. Money in the Bank Winner. And whether you agree with it or not but. Mr. Money In The Bank is not booked well to his cash-in the contract. Also, in reality, there is not any need for Corbin to do so, as, in future, he is likely to be on the top. Som At the WWE SummerSlam 2017, it will make much sense if John Cena wins than if the rising star Baron Corbin wins.

#3 Nakamura wins and Corbin cashes in

WWE SummerSlam 2017

This seems like great, but the explanation will make more sense.

Firstly, The Title reign of Jinder Mahal is at its best. Also, it is a fun to see the new guy at the top. We saw Great Khali helping Mahal in retaining the title. No one expects this and this adds a dimension to this reign. Jinder Mahal is decent on the mic, but there is a desire for Mahal’s athleticism leave. These are boring to watch his matches.

Probably it is the time for him to drop the WWE World Title. While the Shinsuke is on a meteoric rise. And there is not any chance of losing from Jinder Mahal at the main roster. Thus Nakamura should be won the title at WWE SummerSlam 2017 PPV and let the Brooklyn and whole fans insane for Shinsuke.

And then we can see Baron wrap it up. He should cash in his Miney In The Bank Contract on his longtime rival. And thus becomes the first time WWE Champion. Whether you believe in this or not, but this is the perfect time for Baron Corbin to cash in his contract. Thus he can take revenge from his long time rival Shinsuke Nakamura.

#2 Seth Rollins and Dean Ambrose get on the same page and win the Raw tag team titles

WWE SummerSlam 2017

Right now, this is the best storyline going on in the WWE. When Rollins turned his back on Roman Reigns and Dean Ambrose. Then after some time, it seems like that Roma Reign will forgive Seth Rollins for what he did to them. But Dean Ambrose does not forgive him as Rollins betrayed Dean. Now he is making him regain his trust back.

Finally, last week Monday Night Raw, Dean Ambrose come forward for a reunion after Rollins helped him. But this time it was Seth Rollins who refuse to the reunion. It seems that Rollins is upset about the fact that Dean made him jump through these hoops to prove his loyalty.

However, that scene clearly building toward an eventual reunion. And WWE SummerSlam 2017 PPV will be the right place to do so. It looks like they will be reunited and capture the WWE Raw Tag team Title at WWE SummerSlam 2017 PPV from Sheamus and Cesaro.

The Shield is one of the most popular and legendary teams in the history of WWE. So if they are going to reunite back then it will elicit a reaction for sure. And WWE SummerSlam is the perfect place for this to happen.


#1 Brock Lesnar loses the Universal title

WWE SummerSlam 2017

A fatal 4-way elimination match for the Universal Title. What the main event set by the Kurt Angel at WWE SummerSlam 2017 PPV. These four are great wrestlers and one of them will win the Universal Title at the upcoming PPV. But one thing is sure that this time Brock Lesnar will not be able to get the gold.

Lesnar is going back to the USADA drug testing pool. Jon Jones called him out and Lesnar responded. Thus Lesnar could not keep the WWE Universal title if he is going to be training to UFC.

There is a good thing going to happen if Lesnar loses. Like now there will be some one who will actually show up regularly on Monday Night Raw. If the Samoa Joe or Braun Strowman wins then it will be a very interesting win as they will hold the title for the first time. Plus, in this way, we can saw Brock Lesnar’s return around the time of Royal Rumble. And then he can finish his contract with WWE. No Doubt Brock Lesnar is a great attraction, but his time is coming to an end.
