WWE SummerSlam 2017 Preview (8/20/17): The Down & Dirty On Tonight's Show

This now adds some juice to his match with Cena on Sunday, after Cena cost him the title, and it also gives the heel something to complain about for the next few months.

According to a new report from Gothamist, a group of WWE fans is planning to hold a protest outside of the Barclays Center this evening, calling for President Donald Trump to be removed from the company's Hall of Fame. The event promises intense competition that paves the way for the next batch of feuds and storylines that will dominate WWE programming.

WWE SummerSlam begins at 7 ET/ 4 PT.

"I have to do it, I have to beat Brock Lesnar, I have to challenge Brock, he has the title that I never lost, and if I'm any sort of a man, I need to be a man and stand up to this guy".

Brock Lesnar will be facing Braun Strowman, Roman Reigns and Samoa Joe. "It's amusing that people can say that all of a sudden Jinder is what he is", Triple H told ESPN, referring to Mahal and Nakamura's match. Both Lesnar and Paul Heyman have promised to leave WWE if Lesnar loses his title. With Lesnar rumored to be headed back to the UFC for a potential fight against Jon Jones, a new champion will most likely be crowned here. Look for Rusev to potentially win. Since starting his monster push, Braun Strowman has awed fans with his feats of strength and his ability to survive attempts on his life.

At the same time, assuming Nakamura wins the WWE Title on Sunday, Corbin losing his briefcase on SmackDown takes away the chance of him cashing in. Cena, who has repeatedly embarrassed The Lone Wolf, keeps a busy schedule outside of WWE and may be headed toward another sabbatical. "It's all those factors in maintaining self-confidence and knowing that expectations are high and you've got to go in there and exceed those at the show". This makes Corbin the likely victor as WWE will want him to look strong as he attempts to climb back into the championship picture on Tuesday nights. It again speaks to the theory that WWE knows it does not have a lot of time left with Cena, and they're trying to maximize his time before his next layoff for a movie. The "King of Strong Style" has fallen short of both fans and journalists high expectations since his post-WrestleMania call-up, largely due to the booking (i.e. Vince McMahon thinking Nakamura is a Prince cosplayer) and below-average matches with Corbin and Dolph Ziggler.

Ambrose and Rollins have to win this, especially since Cesaro and Sheamus have run their course as a tag team. Ironically, the man McMahon envisions as his top star, Roman Reigns, possesses the least star power of the quartet.

The Hardy Boyz had one of the WWE moments of the year when they made a surprise return at WrestleMania and won the Raw Tag Team Championship.

Smackdown tag-team championship match: The New Day defend their titles against the extremely talented Usos. The two faced each other and it was Banks who won the opportunity to face Bliss at WWE SummerSlam. Alexa Bliss defends the RAW Women's Championship against Sasha Banks.

It would be hard to name two Superstars who should be utilized better on RAW than Finn Bálor and Bray Wyatt.

The RAW side of things will start off with Big Show vs Big Cass with Enzo Amore hanging above the ring inside of a shark cage.
