Other SummerSlam Thoughts

SummerSlam is the second-biggest WWE PPV of the year, but this one feels a little more important than usual due to the blossoming competition between WWE and All Elite Wrestling.

All Out is coming up on August 31, and even though WWE won't be competing with the event directly on that day, SummerSlam is an opportunity to put pressure on the fledgling company.

The problem is WWE has given us yet another main event featuring Rollins and Lesnar, but the rest of the card might be enough to save the show.

Goldberg and Stratus returning to the ring is meant to draw in lapsed fans, while bouts like Styles vs. Ricochet and Gulak vs. Lorcan will appeal more to the hardcore fanbase. 

Kingston and Orton have the most interesting story heading into the PPV, and the return of Wyatt to active competition with his new Fiend gimmick has a lot of people excited.

Lynch and Natalya will almost certainly live up to expectations, while Moon has a chance to shine in her first big title match on a PPV against Bayley.

WWE has put together a solid card, but it's all about the execution. One bad decision from management can ruin an entire event, so there is a lot of pressure on everyone to make sure things go smoothly.
