WWE Fans Planning a Protest Against Donald Trump In New York

John Cena

Let's dive into some of the numbers behind the featured matches on this year's card.

A year ago, Joe captured the NXT Championship from Nakamura, but they were hardly strangers. Nakamura's strong style is new to WWE fans but not to wrestling fans as a whole.

Expect his opponents to bring the work rate but Lesnar to obliterate someone en route to another impressive victory as he strengthens his argument to the title of "Greatest Superstar in SummerSlam History". The prospect of Carmella using her guaranteed title shot could divert the audience's attention away from the title match, causing them to wait for the finish and not care about anything before that.

Prediction: Nakamura scores his first WWE title.

-Naomi vs. Natalya for the Smackdown Women's Championship. That's an awfully long time when you're pay per views haven't been all that great recently. Two of those losses came to Owens. History says the contract holder is nearly guaranteed to win the title, but Corbin played himself by cashing in on champ Jinder Mahal at an inopportune time. Either way, given both teams' experience with tag team wrestling, this should be fun.

-Sheamus and Cesaro vs. Seth Rollins and Dean Ambrose for the Raw Tag Titles.

"Two years feels like two weeks for me, I've been able to travel around the world and represent the WWE doing what we do".

With that said, there is still mileage in this current Lesnar title reign, and the fact the Raw brand has a No Mercy pay-per-view event in Los Angeles would seem to point to The Beast retaining and lending star power to the event in Staples Center.

- Sheamus has won each of his past three SummerSlam matches, defeating Alberto Del Rio in 2012, Randy Orton in 2015 and Cesaro in 2016. Not only that, but it appeared that Corbin kicked out before the three count and the referee took a long, long time before ringing the bell to start the match.

This Sunday is SummerSlam in Brooklyn, New York, and Cena will take on Baron Corbin.

- However, Cena is now in the middle of a SummerSlam slump.

Much like every other Summerslam event that came before, there will be matches that a lot of people will anticipate.

All that and much more, b!

It's been reported that WWE has soured on Corbin - hence why his cash in went so wrong. But then you look at events like Fastlane, Money In The Bank, and last month's Battleground, and suddenly you're standing there scratching your head. With championship gold around their waist, perhaps afterwards Ambrose and Rollins will approach Roman Reigns about rejoining their ranks as well.

"Getting in the ring, no [I didn't think I would be back by SummerSlam]".

- Wyatt once again finds himself outside the title picture.

- A women's championship has changed hands five times at SummerSlam but never in consecutive years.

Reigns has been one of the most consistently great main event workers on the roster in 2017.
