PREDICTION: Roman Reigns
AJ Styles (C) vs. Samoa Joe (WWE championship)
The match WWE fans have been craving for is finally official featuring two former TNA superstars on the headline going head to head for the WWE title on one of the distinguished stages at SummerSlam 2018.
PREDICTION: AJ Styles
Alexa Bliss (C) vs. Ronda Rousey (Raw’s women’s championship)
Raw General Manager Kurt Angle awarded Rousey a shot at the title after Alexa Bliss cost Ronda her title match against Nia Jax, by cashing in her money in the Bank briefcase during her match. Despite repeatedly breaking the rules of her suspension, she has been given the chance at SummerSlam 2018 to pay back Bliss in her own coin. This is a tremendous moment for Rousey and the women’s division.
PREDICTION: Ronda Rousey
Braun Strowman vs. Kevin Owens (Money in the Bank briefcase)
The condition for the match is that Strowman’s money on the bank will be on the line when he faces Owen. That implies that no matter how he loses the match at SummerSlam 2018, he will lose the money in the bank contract.
PREDICTION: Braun Strowman
Dolph Zigler (C) vs. Seth Rollins (Intercontinental championship)
Rumour has it that the match might be changed with possibilities for Balor or others to be added. But for now, its Rollins who has gotten himself another chance at SummerSlam 2018 to win the Intercontinental title back despite losing to Ziggler in an Ironman match, which was itself a rematch.
PREDICTION: Seth Rollins
Carmella (C) vs. Becky Lynch vs Charlotte Flair (Smackdown women’s championship) Triple threat match
Lynch got herself a shot at the title at SummerSlam 2018 after defeating the champion in a non-title match and should be able to cash in the title now that James Ellsworth won’t be able to interfere due to his dismissal. But on the other end of the line is Flair which has also been added to the match also after defeating Carmella. This has somewhat decreased the odds for Lynch.
PREDICTION: Becky Lynch
Ceric Alexander (C) vs. Drew Gulak (Cruiserweight Championship)
Alexander has proven himself as the top man on 205 live as he has been virtually unstoppable. Drew Gulak a man feared as a submission specialist stands as his next challenge. Since the rebooting of 205 live under Triple, Gulak has been a joy to watch as his character has been transformed incredibly. This should be a great title bout at SummerSlam 2018 in Brooklyn.
PREDICTION: Cedric Alexander
Budgeon Brothers (C) TBD or The New Day (Smackdown Tag team Championship)
With the tag team championship on the line, the Budgeon brothers are set to take on either Cesaro and Sheamus or The new day. A tag team tournament will be held to determine the No 1 contender for the match at Summerslam 2018. The finals are Set between TBD and TheNew Day.

2018 WWE Summerslam card predictions and rumors
These are matches based on speculations and current storylines. None have been announced officially at this time.
Daniel Bryan vs. The Miz:
It has been unsurprising as this years-long feud heat up greatly as the path to SummerSlam 2018 unfolds. This could be a top match at SummerSlam 2018 if the cards are built right.
Shinsuke Nakamura (C) vs Jeff Hardy vs. Randy Orton (United State Championship)
The return of Randy Orton at extreme rule was a pain in the ass for Hardy Nether region and it confused Nakamura even more. A triple threat match would make a who;e lot of sense at SummerSlam 2018 compared to a heel vs. heel match.
Bobby Lashley vs Elias
The feud started when Lashley’s music interrupted one of Elias’ in-arena concerts some weeks ago. It is becoming clear that this feud might lead to a match at SummerSlam 2018.
Finn Balor vs. Drew McIntyre
When Mcintyre helped deliver the Intercontinental title win to Ziggler at the expense of Rollins it sparked some tension which continued in a tag team match at raw. The only reason why Balor is here at SummerSlam 2018 instead of Rollins is that there is nothing else for either guy to do at the moment.
The B-team (C) vs. Deleters of Worlds vs. The Revival (Raw Tag Team Championship)
The B- team picked up business with the Deleters with the Revival getting involved at raw. It may be a no 1 contenders match for a shot at the B team at SummerSlam 2018
Andrade “Cien” Almas & Zelina Vega vs. Rusev & Lana:
This one has been building up over the last couple weeks on Smackdown with Vega and Almas getting wins over their other counterparts. This seems to be a potential kick off show match at SummerSlam 2018 with the cards on the right direction. Aiden English vs, Rusev would be another option should that on-screen disagreement continue.
John Cena vs. The Undertaker
In over a decade, Cena has always featured in the Summerslam, yet the nearly complete card looks strong even without Cena. Taker and Cena have not been on WWE TV for a while since the Greatest Royal Rumble. With Cena having unfinished business with Taker after he suffered a quick loss at Wrestlemania 34. This could sum up a great match at Summerslam 2018 as John Cena seeks to find his revenge
