WWE Summerslam 2016 Predictions [UPDATED]

Aug 19, 2016

We are back here again, eh? Summerslam is upon us one again and it couldn’t be a better card!…Well, it could, but still!

This is the first PROPER PPV after the brand split extension (Battleground didn’t count) and we will see a new WWE Universal Champion.

Furthermore, the WWE World Heavyweight Championship will officially become the WWE World Champion (Maybe a new belt?) and will The New Day go a full year as the WWE Tag Team Champions or is it a "new day" for Gallows & Anderson!

Anyway, let’s jump to the card. This is the card as shown on WWE.com at the time of writing!

(C) – Current Champion – Results in bold are the winners of the match!

Pre-Show (I didn’t see any of this, so the winners are pulled from wwe.com)

Cesaro vs Sheamus – PREDICTION: Cesaro…on the Pre-show? Are WWE losing their minds? He should be up there with Seth and Finn. Cesaro to win.

Sami Zayn & Neville vs The Dudley Boyz – PREDICTION: Sami & Neville…We haven’t seen Neville in on a PPV in a VERY long time and it should make sense for him to get a push!

The Usos & American Alpha & The Hype Bros vs Breezango, The Ascension & The Vaudevillians – PREDICTION: Why was this matched booked? American Alpha, Vaudevillians and probably The Hype Bros should be getting push. Good vs Jobbers tbh. AA and Hype Bros to win.

Main Show

Non Title Matches

Brock Lesnar vs Randy Orton – PREDICTION: Randy Orton. Randy hasn’t been in a proper match in nearly 10 months and it would make sense for him to get a push and and start fueding with Dean Ambrose if he retains the title. Brock is just there for show and probably won’t win.

John Cena vs AJ Styles – PREDICTION: #LetsBeatUpJohnCena – Ah, I kid. John hasn’t done much and he has said that he is only going to wrestle part time (like Brock) and will probably get AJ over. AJ to win.

Enzo Amore & Big Cass vs "Jeric-KO" (Chris Jericho & Kevin Owens) – PREDICTION: This is a comedy match. The 4 of them on the mics the past 3 weeks have been great and I cannpt wait to see a good match. This should be good, but I like Enzo & Cass, so they get a vote from me.

Carmella, Becky Lynch & Naomi vs Natalya & Alexa Bliss & Nikki Bella – PREDICTION: Well, It’s now a 3v2 after Eva Marie got suspended under the Wellness policy. Great start the main roster Eva! Carmella, Becky and Naomi to win just because of Becky 😛 (I didn’t see Nikki coming back)

Title Matches

The Miz (C) vs Apollo Crews for the WWE Intercontinental Championship – PREDICTION: The Miz. As much as I hate him and his character, Apollo is just not ready for a belt! Still young in the scene and afaik, he hasn’t won a title in NXT goes to checkYup…Hasn’t won a belt under WWE.

The New Day (C) vs Gallows & Anderson for the WWE Tag Team Championship – PREDICTION: This should be a good match and by the looks of it, it nearly may be the end of The New Day considering how they have been acting the past while (Read: The Wyatt family fued) – I would like to see Gallows & Anderson win it. DQ due to Big E returning

Sasha Banks (C) vs Charlotte for the WWE Women’s Championship – PREDICTION: Sasha to retain. Charlotte goes with a bi-polor storyline for a while and takes it out on Dana, Ric and whoever else…Maybe (It’s a predicton post after all)

Rusev (C) vs Roman Reigns for the WWE United States Championship – PREDICTION: The belt over the past year or so has had no meaning and Reigns getting the belt would keep the belt for the "US Champions" which the point of the belt in the first place. Roman to get the belt! Match didn’t happen…Just a brawl

Dean Ambrose (C) vs Dolph Ziggler for the WWE World Championship – PREDICTION: Does DZ finally get his sweet glory? For a guy who has worked his ass off in the company for the past few years, it would only make sense for him to be awarded for that in the form of the WWE WC belt. Dolph to win!

Finn Bálor vs Seth Rollins for the WWE Universal Championship – PREDICTION: New big belt! A big ol’ belt for Finn! Yes, for Finn and for Finn only! Seth, go away please! Go be a jobber with Roman and fued with him for the US title. Have I mentioned that Finn should win this one. This is also the MATCH TO WATCH (duh) – Finn Balor won, but relinquished it on RAW the next day due to injury. He is out for 6 months

Big card for this years SummerSlam (13 matches in total) – Prediction results might be a bit late since I am going on holiday on Monday, so I might miss SummerSlam >.<

Enjoy SummerSlam!
