August 23, 2020, marks the return of WWE’s premier summer time wrestling occasion, SummerSlam.
As a result of present scenario plaguing our world, the 2020 installment of the occasion gained’t be going down from the TD Backyard in Boston, Massachusetts as initially scheduled. Now one would presume that SummerSlam 2020 will probably be emanating from the WWE Efficiency Middle like many of the 2020 PPV’s that got here earlier than it. However rumors are pointing in the direction of WWE making an attempt one thing a bit totally different with the principle location this time round – we may get to witness SummerSlam 2020 being held outside on a seashore and even atop a ship. Both setting would make for an awesome visible deal with for WWE’s greatest social gathering of the summer time.
Right here’s hoping that the rumors come true. Within the meantime, let’s check out the matches that can happen at SummerSlam 2020 and who we predict will come out on prime.
The Road Income (Angelo Dawkins and Montez Ford) (c) vs. Andrade and Angel Garza (with Zelina Vega) (WWE Uncooked Tag Staff Championship)
Predictions & Winners: The Road Income have been going sturdy ever since they defeated Murphy and Seth Rollins again in March. Since then, they’ve efficiently defended their belts quite a few occasions and even overcome a lot bigger foes within the type of the Viking Raiders. The subsequent staff to step as much as bat for the Uncooked Tag Staff Championship is Zelina Vega’s tremendous proficient Latino duo, Andrade and Angel Garza. I loved it when the Road Income took on Angel Garza and Austin Principle again at WrestleMania 36, so I can think about how significantly better this match will probably be now that Andrade is taking Austin’s place. And I’m certain each groups will get greater than six minutes to work this match into one thing actually memorable.
Now there have been moments of dissension between Angel and Andrade right here and there. However I get the sensation that Zelina will do every thing in her energy to get them again on the identical web page (by way of fiery promos within the ring and outdoors of it, after all). Now Angelo Dawkins and Montez Ford ended up beating that very same duo on Uncooked a month prior. That has me leaning in the direction of Angel and Andrade getting the win right here. The bond between each males is stronger than ever and it makes essentially the most sense for them to say the Uncooked tag staff titles at this cut-off date. The Road Income have been held the tag staff straps since March, so I believe they’ve held them lengthy sufficient. It’s time for some new blood to carry the belts!
Drew McIntyre (c) vs. Randy Orton (WWE Championship)
Predictions & Winner: Randy Orton is within the midst of one other profession resurgence. After defeating Edge again at Backlash in a match billed as “The Biggest Match Ever,” Randy went on to fell the Massive Present throughout a No Sanctioned match weeks later. On the identical time, Drew McIntyre has been experiencing the perfect run of his WWE comeback as the highest champion within the firm. Drew has overcome a number of worthy challengers, reminiscent of Seth Rollins, Bobby Lashley, and Dolph Ziggler. Now the WWE Champion has to cope with a rejuvenated “Viper” in probably the largest problem for him up to now. The primary occasion for SummerSlam 2020 is main and that’s precisely the way it needs to be for the Monday Night time Uncooked portion of the present.
I’m actually torn on this one. Randy is hotter than ever and on the prime of his recreation relating to character work. It’s really easy to care about him as soon as once more now that he’s gone again to being a heel who does something and every thing to win. As for Drew, he’s in the midst of working the Uncooked model as a commendable WWE Champion. His promo work has turn into stronger, his win-loss document is respectable, and he’s remained untouchable for a prolonged period of time. This match may truthfully go both means so far as the winner is worried. Although Orton would make for an awesome WWE Champion throughout his present run, I believe Drew’s going to notch one other W within the win column by defeating a bonafide Corridor of Famer in Orton. This will probably be his greatest win up to now and push him additional alongside to being the strongest WWE Champion in current reminiscence.
