This Sunday is SummerSlam, apparently. The third biggest show of the year. And this is the lineup? Okie dokie then. Once again loads of top-notch stars are absent from the card. Second SummerSlam in a row with no Daniel Bryan, by the way. Super. Also no AJ, no Owens, no Cesaro/Nakamura, no Shayna. I know I need to quit trying to assign logic to WWE but I can't help it. Anyway, this will be the first PPV under the ThunderDome format, where fans are virtually in attendance on LCD screens. Yeah, that'll fix everything. When is this company going to figure out that gimmicks and cosmetic changes aren't what will make the product good again? Christ...
Let's pick some winners.
RAW Tag Team Championship: The Street Profits vs. Andrade and Angel Garza
This should be a solid match with a lot of athleticism, thus the opening slot would be a good fit for it. Not much more to say about it than that really. In a better company a match like this could steal the show, but it won't get enough time to do that.
Pick: Street Profits retain
US Championship: Apollo Crews vs. MVP
Here's a question, why the FUCK is MVP contending for a championship on a PPV in 2020? Bruce Pritchard sucks as a lead creative guy in this day and age. Stop pushing guys from your last stint with the company and create *new* stars. Hasn't Crews already beaten MVP a bunch of times already?
Pick: Crews retains. Unless stupider heads prevail.
