SummerSlam is just around the corner, and for lapsed fans who haven’t been keeping up with WWE, it can be a bit overwhelming to figure out what’s going on. That’s where we come in. Here’s a quick guide to the major storylines going into SummerSlam, so you can be prepared for all the action in Detroit.
The biggest storyline heading into SummerSlam is the battle between The Bloodline and The Undisputed WWE Universal Champion, Roman Reigns. Reigns has been the WWE’s top heel for the past few years, and he’s led The Bloodline (consisting of his cousins The Usos) to dominance. However, Reigns’ reign of terror may finally be coming to an end at SummerSlam.
Reigns’ challenger is Brock Lesnar, who is making his return to WWE after a two-year absence. Lesnar is one of the most popular wrestlers in WWE history, and he’s always a threat to win any title he competes for. Lesnar and Reigns have a long history of feuding, and their match at SummerSlam is sure to be a barnburner.
The Raw Women’s Championship match is also shaping up to be a great one. Becky Lynch is the current champion, but she’s facing a tough challenge from Bianca Belair. Belair is one of the most talented wrestlers in WWE, and she’s already won the SmackDown Women’s Championship once. If she can defeat Lynch at SummerSlam, she’ll be the first woman to hold both the Raw and SmackDown Women’s Championships simultaneously.
The SmackDown Women’s Championship match is also worth checking out. Ronda Rousey is the current champion, and she’s facing a challenge from Natalya. Rousey is a former UFC champion, and she’s one of the most dominant wrestlers in WWE. However, Natalya is a veteran who is always game for a challenge. This match is sure to be a physical one, and it could be the start of a new era for the SmackDown Women’s Championship.
