SummerSlam 2023 Predictions
As WWE SummerSlam approaches, fans eagerly await the potential matches that could unfold on the grand stage of the event.
While no official announcements have been made regarding the matches, several rumoured showdowns have started generating considerable excitement among wrestling enthusiasts.
One rumoured clash features Gunther challenging Drew McIntyre for the Intercontinental Championship. Although not yet official, Gunther’s call-out on WWE’s Raw and McIntyre’s reported request for a strong storyline upon his return hint at a probable confrontation at SummerSlam.
Another highly anticipated match is between Rhea Ripley and Raquel Rodriguez for the Women’s World Championship. Weeks of teasing culminated in an explosive encounter as Ripley attacked Rodriguez backstage on Raw, leading to Rodriguez and Liv Morgan losing the World Tag Team Championship to Chelsea Green and Sonya Deville.
The prospect of Becky Lynch facing Trish Stratus in WWE SummerSlam is also on fans’ radars. While not officially announced, Lynch’s pending bout against Zoey Stark on Monday Night Raw could pave the way for this showdown.
A collision involving Asuka, Bianca Belair, and Charlotte Flair vying for the WWE Women’s Championship has been brewing for weeks, with Belair expressing her demand for a title shot she believes she deserves. Additionally, the presence of Japanese wrestler Iyo Sky’s potential cash-in adds another layer of suspense to the event.
Among other speculations, a match between Roman Reigns and Jey Uso for the Undisputed WWE Universal Championship seems imminent. Recent developments, including Roman’s first pinfall loss in three years during the tag team main event at Money In The Bank and Jimmy’s altercation with Roman and Solo Sikoa on SmackDown, strongly suggest this anticipated face-off will take place at WWE SummerSlam.
As for Kevin Owens and Sami Zayn, a rematch against Damian Priest and Dominik Mysterio appears probable after their recent title defense on Raw. The interaction between Zayn, Owens, Seth Rollins, and ‘The Judgment Day’ following Raw’s conclusion further fuels expectations for an intense battle at SummerSlam.
