Its that time again where the folks under the charge of Vinnie Mac stage what has come to be known as ‘The Biggest Party Of The Summer’. Fans have been crying out for a change in the WWE Universe for months now and with both Raw and Smackdown seemingly slowly but surely taking the turn for the better, optimism is high for the supershow this Sunday live from the always vocal crowd in Toronto, Canada. Let’s take a look at the marque matches and beyond.
Once again we will see Brock Lesnar and Seth Rollins hook them up for the Universal title. This multi-year rivalry seems to be coming to a close now if recent TV happenings are anything to go by and for some fans this will be a welcome development. With reports of Rollins not being the big draw for live events one could think the title will stay with ‘The Beast’ here. However, despite the influence of Paul Heyman all over Raw as of late, we are going with Rollins regaining the strap and perhaps moving on to a feud with Drew McIntyre for the title over the next couple of months.
Speaking of multi-year rivalries, Kofi Kingston will once again meet up with Randy Orton, this time for the WWE title. There is a lot of history here, both in and out of the ring, and one would think here that this could be a scorcher of a bout, pending both men turning up in their working boots. Orton leaving with the title could be likely here as the whole ‘KofiMania’ movement seems to grinding to a halt from a crowd reaction standpoint. Saying that, another reign for Orton does not seem appealing either so for this one we will just sit on the fence!
Kevin Owens vs Shane McMahon. If Owens loses he quits WWE. Let’s keep this short. We ALL want Owens to win and we ALL want Shane McMahon out of our lives forever. But… this writer feels a swerve and loss for Owens could be on the cards. Oh heck!
When it comes to random bouts that we did not see coming, Dolph Ziggler vs Goldberg has to be right up there towards the top of the list. Good ole Bill wants to right the wrongs from his match with The Undertaker earlier this year and if anyone could guide him to that then it could very well be Mr Ziggles. A Goldberg victory seems likely here. Although a win for Ziggler would be nice, we are going with the angry bald man from Atlanta.
As for the rest of our predictions:
- Charlotte Flair defeats Trish Stratus
- Becky Lynch defeats Natalya
- Ember Moon defeats Bayley
- AJ Styles defeats Ricochet
- Bray Wyatt defeats Finn Balor
- Drew Gulak defeats Oney Lorcan
Tune in this Sunday and see for yourselves peeps. We will recap it all next week!
