WWE SummerSlam 2022 card, matches, rumors, predictions, match card, start time, date, place

The biggest event of the summer has finally arrived. SummerSlam will kick off from Nashville’s Nissan Stadium on Saturday night with a loaded card that will fill one of WWE’s premium live tent pole events of the year.

This year marks the 35th time WWE has held SummerSlam and they are doing great. The long rivalry between Roman Reigns and Brock Lesnar will continue into the show’s main event. Reigns will defend his undisputed championship against Lesnar in a Last Man Standing Match that will likely see the two men tear each other apart.

In addition, four more titles are scheduled for the evening, including both the female champion in action and the unified champion of the tag team.

The construction of the show has come to its conclusion and all the pieces are ready for a fantastic night of action. With that in mind, let’s take a look at what we know will take place at WWE SummerSlam.

WWE SummerSlam matches

Undisputed WWE Universal Championship – Roman Reigns (c) vs Brock Lesnar (Last Man Standing Match): For years, WWE has been returning to Reigns vs. Lesnar tops the main cards. They returned to that pit once again making Lesnar return after Reigns beat Riddle to keep his undisputed championship. The two recently met at WrestleMania, with Reigns taking the win. Now they meet again, this time according to the rules of Last Man Standing. It’s the kind of grueling game that gets the winner cashed by Theory, holder of the Money in the Bank contract.

United States Championship – Bobby Lashley (c) vs. Theory: Lashley beat Theory to win the Money in the Bank title. Theory night would get a lot better by the end of that show, getting a seat in the Money in the Bank ladder match and winning the contract. However, Theory is looking to take revenge on Lashley, despite him having a clear chance for the biggest belts in the company. Lashley, meanwhile, will be looking to build momentum as a secondary title holder after previously being in the mix as a world title contender.

Pat McAfee vs Happy Corbin: Corbin contested McAfee’s excavation of the comments, leading to several clashes. McAfee has finally launched a challenge for a game of SummerSlam. After Money in the Bank concluded, Corbin attacked McAfee and accepted the game. McAfee has put on several very entertaining performances in NXT and even had a solid match with Theory at WrestleMania. After beating Theory, McAfee lost an impromptu match to Vince McMahon. Corbin hasn’t won a pay-per-view match, including being on the losing side of two Survivor Series tag matches, since December 2019.

Undisputed WWE Tag Team Championship – The Usos (c) vs. The Street Profits (with Special Referee Jeff Jarrett): The teams had a brilliant match at Money in the Bank, which was won by the Usos. However, replays showed that Montez Ford’s shoulder was actually raised at the time of the pin. This was reason enough to organize the rematch. This is good news for fans because there is the potential for an even better match between teams on the big stage at SummerSlam. Authority figure Adam Pearce has announced Jarrett of Tennessee himself as a special guest referee for the game.

SmackDown Women’s Championship – Liv Morgan (c) v Ronda Rousey: Morgan won the Money in the Bank contract and cashed it hours later, scoring a pin on Rousey after Rousey defeated Natalya to keep the title. That grossing success gave Morgan her first run as a WWE champion. Now, she will have to beat Rousey again, this time without Rousey taking a grueling win seconds earlier.

Raw women’s championship – Bianca Belair (c) vs Becky Lynch: Lynch infamously won the SmackDown title from Belair in under 30 seconds at last year’s SummerSlam. Belair retaliated by winning the Raw title from Lynch at WrestleMania. However, Belair now has the opportunity to cancel the 2021 SummerSlam debacle. Lynch disputed that he did not get an immediate rematch against Belair after the WrestleMania defeat and continued to fish for the match until it was finally made official.

The Miz vs. Logan Paul: The Miz and Paul teamed up on WrestleMania to defeat The Mysterios. After that match, Miz turned to Paul, attacking him and achieving a crushing finish. Paul eventually started posting on social media for a one-on-one match with Miz. After it was announced that Paul had officially signed a deal with WWE, the speech escalated with Miz refusing to allow Paul the match. Things changed on Raw when Paul appeared on Miz TV and refused the challenge again as he taunted Miz. Miz finally agreed and the SummerSlam fight officially began.

The Mysterios vs. The Judgment Day (no disqualification): The Mysterios and Judgment Day battled for weeks with Finn Balor and Damian Priest trying to get Dominik Mysterio to join their ranks. After Rey Mysterio beat Balor on Raw and celebrated his 20th WWE anniversary, Balor, Priest and Rhea Ripley attacked Mysterio backstage, throwing him with a powerbomb on a table. This created a no-disqualification confrontation for SummerSlam.
