The next WWE PPV is SummerSlam on Sunday, August 19 at Barclays Center in Brooklyn, NY. The show begins at 7pmET with an expected run time of at least four hours, but it could approach the five-hour mark with an ending close to midnight. Plus, the Kickoff Show for the “big four” PPVs are usually two hours meaning WWE could be planning a SEVEN HOUR (I had to go all caps for that) event at SummerSlam. Keep in mind that WrestleMania was over seven hours counting the Kickoff Show, so it’s possible SummerSlam will go that long.
Here’s the lineup so far.
Universal Championship: Brock Lesnar (c) vs. Roman Reigns
WWE Championship: AJ Styles (c) vs. Samoa Joe
Raw Women’s Championship: Alexa Bliss (c) vs. Ronda Rousey
Daniel Bryan vs. The Miz
For the Money in the Bank Contract: Braun Strowman vs. Kevin Owens
Intercontinental Championship: Dolph Ziggler (c) vs. Seth Rollins
United States Championship: Shinsuke Nakamura (c) vs. Jeff Hardy
Smackdown Women’s Championship: Carmella (c) vs. Becky Lynch vs. Charlotte Flair
Smackdown Tag Team Championships: The Bludgeon Brothers (c) vs. The New Day
Baron Corbin vs. Finn Balor
Cruiserweight Championship: Cedric Alexander (c) vs. Drew Gulak – I expect this to be a Kickoff Show match.
If they add more matches then two of them might be Bobby Lashley vs. Elias and Rusev/Lana vs. Andrade Cien Almas/Zelina Vega. I don’t know if they need to add more because 11 matches are more than enough.
