You'll never see it coming! The biggest party of the summer, WWE's Summerslam, is this Sunday! Here's everything you need to know! (All descriptions for matches from WWE)


Drew McIntyre vs. Randy Orton – WWE Championship Match

WWE

"Drew McIntyre's start to his first WWE Championship run is the stuff Legends are made of. Unfortunately for McIntyre, that's exactly the type of thing Randy Orton is programmed to destroy.

The Scottish Superstar slayed The Beast to reach the summit of WWE and has proceeded to topple giants, old friends and rising stars during his consummate run as a fighting champion. Orton has left a trail of incredible Superstars in his wake after defeating Edge in The Greatest Wrestling Match Ever. The Viper's ruthless nature was on display as he brutally attacked and punted Christian and Big Show in Unsanctioned Matches."

"The Monster" Braun Strowman vs. "The Fiend" Bray Wyatt - Universal Championship Match

WWE

"Universal Champion Braun Strowman and Bray Wyatt have inflicted an endless amount of physical and psychological agony upon one another over the last few months, and it will all come to a head at The Biggest Event of the Summer, as "The Monster" collides with "The Fiend" in one of the most anticipated Universal Title Matches in WWE history."

Raw Women’s Champion Sasha Banks vs. Asuka

"The bitter rivalry between Asuka and Raw Women's Champion Sasha Banks will come to a head in a title showdown at SummerSlam on Sunday, Aug. 23.

The bad blood between the two can be traced back to The Boss' desire to be a double champion, just like her fellow WWE Women's Tag Team Champion, SmackDown Women's Champion Bayley. Banks jumped Asuka and made her intentions clear ahead of The Horror Show at WWE Extreme Rules last month. That, of course, turned into a nightmare for The Empress of Tomorrow after she inadvertently sprayed the official with green mist. That led to Bayley donning the referee's shirt and making the three-count for Banks. While it was not an official victory, The Boss and Bayley nabbed the Raw Women's Title and ran off with it."

Bayley vs. Asuka – SmackDown Women’s Championship Match

"Asuka will be busy during The Biggest Event of the Summer as The Empress of Tomorrow added a second title clash for the night. The red brand Superstar will face Bayley for the SmackDown Women's Championship after winning a Triple Brand Battle Royal to earn the opportunity.

Dominik Mysterio vs. Seth Rollins — Street Fight

WWE

"At SummerSlam, Dominik Mysterio will compete in his first WWE match against one of the greatest — and most depraved — Superstars of the modern era in Seth Rollins. And it will not just be any regular contest — it will be a Street Fight."

The Street Profits vs. Andrade & Angel Garza – Raw Tag Team Championship Match

WWE



"Zelina Vega's vaunted duo earned the championship opportunity with a hard-fought win over The Viking Raiders and Cedric Alexander & Ricochet in a Triple Threat Tag Team Match on Raw. Montez Ford & Angelo Dawkins will need to be as locked in as ever against the talented, yet combustible duo. The Street Profits have dispatched of a collection of the red brand's best throughout their six-month title reign, and recently defeated their SummerSlam challengers on Raw."

Apollo Crews vs. MVP – United States Title Match

WWE

"Crews will once again face MVP in a United States Title Match at SummerSlam, as the rivalry reaches a boiling point. MVP brazenly declared himself the United States Champion at The Horror Show at WWE Extreme Rules after an attack from Bobby Lashley put Crews out of commission. Flanked by The All Mighty and Shelton Benjamin, MVP was oozing with confidence until Crews defeated the veteran in a United States Championship Match on Raw."

Mandy Rose vs. Sonya Deville – Hair vs. Hair Match


"Sonya made the first cut toward the clash when she attacked Mandy backstage and took multiple snips of her hair with a scissor. The Golden Goddess debuted a new look and a revamped attitude the following week, as she came back swinging and brawled with Deville. Now the two former best friends turned enemies will compete in a Hair vs. Hair Match to settle their disputes."

The biggest event of the summer, Summerslam will take place on the WWE Network, August 23rd, 7 PM ET/4 PM PT.
