Roman Reigns vs Jey Uso

A huge night of wrestling will be headlined by the clash between Roman Reigns and Jey Uso. It is the latest tangent in one of the greatest storylines in wrestling history, with Jey becoming the first superstar to pin Reigns since TLC in December 2019.

The championship showdown between the pair was set on SmackDown, with the cousin’s set to battle for the top prize in WWE just as they did at Hell in a Cell in 2020. Uso lost on that night, and a repeat result is likely. But, it will be a magical road to get to the final bell.

Brock Lesnar vs Cody Rhodes

The rubber match between Brock Lesnar and Cody Rhodes will also take place at Summerslam on Saturday. This rivalry started on the night after Mania, as Lesnar unleashed a beatdown on the American Nightmare. Rhodes won the first clash at Backlash, before Lesnar gained revenge at Night of Champions.

Both of the matches between these stars have been entertaining, and another classic is likely. But, we see Rhodes finally ending this storyline with a huge win.


Seth Rollins vs Finn Balor

Seth Rollins successfully defended the World Heavyweight Championship in London last month against Balor. That win came just hours after Balor’s Judgement Day stablemate Damian Priest had won the Money in the Bank contract. Divisions in the stable have been evident since that point, with Priest’s attempts to cash in on Rollins backfiring due to Balor.

The contract is the interesting narrative that hangs over this match, and we wouldn’t be surprised to see Balor win the title, before Priest cashes in on his Judgement Day teammate.
