WWE Summerslam 2017 Dream Matches
Finn Balor Vs. Bray Wyatt
Every since Finn Balor, made his appearance on WWE with his "Demon King" character, fans have been buzzing about many potential dream feuds in which the "Demon King" Finn Balor could face in the WWE. Some include matches against The Undertaker, Triple H, AJ Styles and many more. One of the most likely feuds due to the fact that Finn is on the RAW brand is a feud against "The Eater Of The Worlds" Bray Wyatt. Imagine the promos with Bray and Finn with the Demon character. Many fans would definitely be interested in seeing this match especially on a big stage like Summerslam.
Seth Rollins Vs. Dean Ambrose
One of the most exciting, memorable feuds of the modern era is the feud between former SHIELD members, Dean Ambrose and Seth Rollins. When this feud occurred before in 2015, Seth Rollins was playing the heel or the bad guy and Dean Ambrose was the face or the good guy. The feud had lots of awesome matches and definitely made both superstars earn the respect of many fans around the world. Seth is known for his tremendous in-ring skills and charisma while Dean is known for his crazy, unhinged, fun style. Many fans seem to be turning on Dean as of late as they find him boring. Therefore, I believe that a good idea would be to turn Dean Ambrose, heel once again like he was in the beginning stage of the SHIELD and let him fight Seth Rollins. The feud would be fresh for Seth Rollins and would also give Dean Ambrose a new direction.
Brock Lesnar Vs. Samoa Joe for the WWE Universal Championship
Many fans were very excited for the dream match between "The Destroyer" Samoa Joe and "The Beast Incarnate" Brock Lesnar. At the first Great Balls Of Fire pay-per-view, the match occurred and fans were surprised to see as Samoa Joe took it to Brock Lesnar slamming him through the announce table ringside even before the match had started. Brock Lesnar eventually won the match after hitting his signature "F5", however fans were still impressed by the performance of Samoa Joe and wanted to see more. Therefore, I believe WWE should make the decision to have the pairing of Brock and Joe to fight again at Summerslam on a bigger stage and in a longer match. The match would definitely deliver if they let Joe go full beast mode and let Brock do more moves than he normally does. Samoa Joe, I believe should go on to win the match after choking out the Beast Incarnate, cementing him as an extremely dominant figure and giving much-needed steam for his career.
Shinsuke Nakamura Vs. AJ Styles for the WWE United States Championship
Many fans saw the face-off between Shinsuke Nakamura and AJ Styles during the WWE Money In The Bank Pay-per-view. Given the history between the two who wrestled each other before in New Japan Pro Wrestling at Wrestle Kingdom 10 in January of 2016, the same month that AJ debuted in WWE in an amazing match for the IWGP Intercontinental Championship. Imagine the two facing off at WWE Summerslam for the United States Championship. Having two big stars like AJ and Shinsuke fighting for the United States Championship would give the title a huge push and definitely give the WWE Championship competition for that top spot. Styles and Nakamura are two of the best in-ring competitors in the industry and would give the fans a fantastic match.
Alexa Bliss Vs. Nia Jax for the RAW Women's Championship
Alexa Bliss has definitely proved herself when she debuted on the Main Roster in 2016 as a part of the WWE Draft as one of the last draft picks. She went on to become the Smackdown Women's Champion on two separate occasions and now stands on RAW as the RAW Women's champion and the first woman to win both the RAW and Smackdown Women's Championships. However, she has been struggling to find meaningful opponents while on RAW thus far. Therefore, I believe a good match for Summerslam would be Alexa facing off against her real life best friend Nia Jax. The David Vs. Goliath Story could be used brilliantly in this match and the fact they are best friends would make the story even better considering the success of other best friend storylines in WWE like Chris Jericho and Kevin Owens and Sami Zayn and Kevin Owens.
The Revival Vs. The Hardy Boyz Vs. Karl Anderson and Luke Gallows Vs. Cesaro and Sheamus for the RAW Tag Team Championships
When fans hear about multi-person matches in WWE, they get turned off as there has been so many multi-person matches in WWE as of recent times. However, in the case of the RAW Tag Team Championships, I think one exception could be granted. The champions Cesaro and Sheamus have been killing it in their matches with The Hardy Boyz but now with the return of the Revival (Dash Wilder and Scott Dawson), many fans would probably like to see the Revival inserted into the picture for a RAW Tag Team Championship match. On the other hand, one team I would like added to this picture is Karl Anderson and Luke Gallows, who as of recent have not been doing very well storyline wise. Their insertion into this feud would give them something meaningful to do and definitely would make the match a whole lot better.
Braun Strowman Vs. Goldberg
"BRAUUUUUUUUNNN". Braun Strowman as of late has been on a roll. His exciting matches and segments against Roman Reigns have definitely solidified him as legit main event talent. He has grown tremendously in the ring and on the microphone. However, I believe he is not just ready to be the champ as yet. Therefore, I suggest pitting Braun against another unstoppable monster, in Goldberg. Goldberg has not been seen on WWE Television since his appearance on the RAW after Wrestlemania 33. Goldberg has hinted that he may not be done with wrestling yet in his speech in a dark segment after the RAW show. Imagine the match between the legendary Goldberg against the new-comer Braun Strowman. This match would be good for Strowman as him winning this match would definitely give him a big rub from Goldberg and put him over even more as a top main-event talent.
Sasha Banks Vs. Bayley
Some of the most memorable matches of the entire history of Women's Wrestling came from RAW women talents. Bayley and Sasha Banks have proved in the past that when they step in the ring they are capable of stealing the show, no matter who is on the card. Their matches from NXT put them over huge with the NXT universe as well as the WWE Universe and definitely made management get more serious about how they book women's matches. However, recently the two have been in a bit of a slump as Bayley has been booked poorly in her feud with Alexa Bliss and Sasha has not done anything major since last year. My suggestion is to turn "The Legit Boss" heel against her best friend Bayley. This would give Sasha a much-needed momentum booster as I truly believe her work as heel in NXT was so much better than her work as face thus far and also it would give Bayley a chance to reinvigorate her career by having great matches with the Boss.
John Cena Vs. Jinder Mahal for the WWE Championship
"The Modern Day Maharaja" Jinder Mahal has been on a roll as of late as the WWE Champion in his matches with three straight wins against Randy Orton. However, the feud between Randy and Jinder never seemed to have clicked with the audience. Now that the feud is finally over, Jinder must now look for a new contender that can boost his title reign tremendously. One person who could do that with ease is none other than John Cena. Fresh off his win against Rusev in the flag match it would be obvious that John would be the one to go against the Anti- American heel Jinder Mahal. John has the capability to put Jinder on a much higher level just by being on the other side of the ring from him. The feud would be easy to book and would definitely raise the stock of Jinder as champion.
Chris Jericho Vs. Kevin Owens
One of the saddest moments in all of Professional Wrestling occurred earlier this year when Kevin Owens turned his back on his best friend Chris Jericho and slammed his head through the television screen. Fans were very upset that the duo who had been one of the biggest highlights of RAW each week had split up. When the two faced off at Wrestlemania in an incredible match which Kevin Owens beat Chris Jericho to win the United States Championship, fans wanted to see more. Jericho would beat Owens at the Payback pay-per-view to retain the championship but lost it once again to Kevin Owens two days later on an episode of Smackdown LIVE and was written off of TV following an attack from Kevin Owens. Now that Chris Jericho has returned to television once again confronting Kevin Owens. Fans have to be hoping to see the duo face off once again at Summerslam as the two put on tremendous matches and the story is still fresh and strong in the minds of fans.
Neville Vs. Cedric Alexander for the Cruiserweight Championship
The Cruiserweight Champion and "King Of The Cruiserweights", Neville has been dominating the cruiserweight division as champion. His stock rose tremendously since he became champion and he has played his role of the heel champion very well. Going through every person the division has to offer like Rich Swann, Jack Gallagher, Mustafa Ali, Lince Dorado and Austin Aries. One match I would like to see The King compete in is against Cedric Alexander. Cedric is one of the most gifted athletes in all of WWE. Many people even believe that Cedric should be fighting in the main roster amongst the other talents. He would be the perfect person to put against Neville at Summerslam and even be a credible competitor to dethrone the King.
