In less than a month WWE will hold its second most important event of the year, SummerSlam, and both brands are ready to fill a huge poster with their best Superstars and rivalries. With four hours to go, not counting the two-hour kickoff, at least a dozen meetings are expected , three of which are already confirmed.
The first to become official was Naomi Vs. Natalya for the SmackDown Women’s Championship, this after the third-generation fighter beat the rest of the blue division to receive a well-deserved title shot at the biggest summer event.
In the opening segment of Monday Night Raw, Kurt Angle confirmed what was already anticipated , that is, that the Universal Championship will be defended in a multitudinal encounter where Champion Brock Lesnar should deal with the three most dominant figures of the red mark: Roman Reigns, Samoa Joe and Braun Strowman. Without SmackDown announcing what will happen with the WWE Championship, the Fatal 4-Way is the de facto star of SummerSlam.

Finally, there was a big surprise in the red women’s division , because despite the good pace that Sasha Banks had and their outstanding issues with Champion Alexa Bliss, it was Bayley who rose triumphantly in a heads-up with her best friend, becoming In the next challenger to the Women’s Raw Championship. However, it is not ruled out that The Boss find a way to stay in the mainstream.
That being the case, this is the poster for SummerSlam 2017 at the moment:
Fatal 4-Way for the Universal Championship: Brock Lesnar (c) (with Paul Heyman) vs. Samoa Joe Vs. Roman Reigns Vs. Braun Strowman
Women’s Raw Championship: Alexa Bliss (c) vs. Bayley
SmackDown Women’s Championship: Naomi (c) vs. Natalya
Surely tonight the blue mark will add more matches on its part. We still have to know what will happen to the WWE Championships, US and SmackDown Couples. In addition, Mr. MITB Baron Corbin and Carmella probably do not want to stay out of the important PPV.
