Champions Most Likely To Lose Their Titles At WWE SummerSlam

Shane McMahon will be the guest referee in the Styles vs. Owens match at Summerslam 2017. Carmella and James Ellsworth have also warned the two about the money in the bank briefcase, which can be used by Carmella at any time. The latest WWE special, SummerSlam 2017, from Boom! Two weeks ago, Rusev attacked Orton as SmackDown came to a close, and just the other day, Orton landed a perfectly timed RKO on his Bulgarian opponent, and yes, it was out of nowhere.

SummerSlam takes place live Sunday at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, N.Y. The event will be broadcast on pay-per-view and streamed on the WWE Network starting at 7 p.m. ET.

The WWE Championship will be up for grabs as well, with Shinsuke Nakamura getting his first shot against Jinder Mahal.

The ongoing feud between John Cena and Baron Corbin is also a match that viewers will not want to miss. The match should be fine (and will probably have its time cut if the company's history with women's matches on big shows is any indication) but the likelihood of a cash-in will be the talking point.

"We've had this incredible lineage in WWE, wrestling has been our life". The greenest worker in the match, Strowman has exceeded the fans and critics wildest expectations in the ring, and can only get better with time.

In the year since, it's been a steady climb for both wrestlers: Each has been called up to the main roster, each has been in championship programs, each has worked with some of the company's most prestigious talent, such as John Cena and Brock Lesnar. Brock Lesnar, the reigning, defending, undisputed champion, will put his title on the line against Roman Reigns (the face of WWE today), Braun Strowman (the 385-pound Monster Among Men), and Samoa Joe (the man who almost captured the title from Lesnar in July) in a Fatal Four Way match. It will be the second title defence for Lesnar, who defeated Samoa Joe in the previous PPV.

The most unpredictable of the matches taking place Sunday, each competitor has a fair chance at taking home Raw's top prize.

Fansided notes that a title run for Nakamura can open a lot of exciting twists, since it will certainly stir up feuds with AJ Styles, Chris Jericho and Kevin Owens. He wasn't happy with the result as both shoulders were not on the mat. They see a screwjob coming, possibly with Shane breaking bad in the process.

Elsewhere on the card, Dean Ambrose and Seth Rollins have finally reunited. Ironically, the man McMahon envisions as his top star, Roman Reigns, possesses the least star power of the quartet. Trump had been involved with the WWE for decades, having hosted the fourth and fifth WrestleMania events. Two triple threat matches were scheduled and they were won by Banks and Jax.

Banks was put into this match last minute after Bayley's shoulder injury, so Bliss uses some underhanded way to escape with the belt. These two will put on a great match, of course, but the real attraction to this one is the resurgence of Finn's "Demon" persona. With a whopping 13 matches signed for "The Biggest Party of the Summer", a few bouts stand out more than the others.

The King of Strong Style is like a wrestling mix of Freddy Mercury and Michael Jackson (trust me, it works), a unique showman that has buckets of style and the moves to back it up in the ring.
