WWE SummerSlam 2017: Making the case for Brock Lesnar

Did WWE Clear The Way For Nakamura To Win the WWE Title?

On tap for "The Biggest Party of the Summer" are a whopping 12 matches, 8 of which are for titles, and a fatal 4-way main event that has the makings of an absolute classic. Here some of the scheduled contests that fans might remember the most from WWE's second biggest pay-per-view. But after a 124-day reign as champs, it seems doubtful The Usos would reclaim the titles.

-Akira Tozawa vs. Neville for the WWE Cruiserweight Championship (Kickoff Show).

The New Day and the Uso's easily delivered the best match at the much maligned SmackDown exclusive Battleground pay-per-view. The Miz, Bo Dallas, and Curtis Axel (Kickoff Show).

"We might protest during the shows, we've got prime seats". Both of these former champions are rumored to make returns to WWE as well.

This match gets an honorable mention for the potential post-match shenanigans more so than the match itself.

Now, Panthers fans are letting the team and everybody else in the world know how exactly how they feel about it on social media. Carolina and Tennessee will meet for the third time in preseason history, with the Panthers holding a 2-0 advantage.

-Naomi vs. Natalya for the Smackdown Women's Championship. Baron Corbin is his opponent, and Cena just humiliated him on this week's episode of SmackDown Live by interrupting Corbin's Money in the Bank cash-in on current champion Jinder Mahal. This will be the sixth title match in SummerSlam history that features a special guest referee, and the champion lost in each of the previous five such matches. Not only does it give Corbin, the heel, something to feed his character for the next few months, it also gives more heat behind his match with Cena and if Nakamura wins the title (whether that's at SummerSlam or in another month), it gives him the full spotlight.

Powell's POV: WWE added the six-man tag match to the Kickoff Show lineup. I'll still go Nakamura regardless, especially since there's no Corbin to throw a wrench into things.

The way the situation played out, I don't think WWE was trying to bury Corbin. This will likely be a good match, maybe even a great match. A title change could make the bout even more memorable. Hopefully Shane's role won't overshadow the entire match. If nothing else, the entrances should be cool.

Ambrose and Rollins have to win this, especially since Cesaro and Sheamus have run their course as a tag team.

It may not be the case but it does appear that the Barclays Center's Twitter account may have spoiled the finish of the main event at SummerSlam.

Yemen facing 'triple tragedy' of conflict, cholera, famine, United Nations says
Since 2015, Yemen has been the site of a devastating war between the Saudi-backed government and Huthi rebels allied with Iran. In addition to Saudi Arabia, the coalition includes Bahrain, Egypt, Kuwait, Sudan and the United Arab Emirates.

These wrestlers have all put in extremely hard hitting matches against one another over the last few months so expect nothing less than a complete brawl.

Brock Lesnar will go up against three heavyweights for the Universal Championship title. That said, the three challengers also feel like larger than life stars.

Jordan's big push continues, good guys beat bad guys and the crowd loves it.

The King of Strong Style is like a wrestling mix of Freddy Mercury and Michael Jackson (trust me, it works), a unique showman that has buckets of style and the moves to back it up in the ring. Ironically, the man McMahon envisions as his top star, Roman Reigns, possesses the least star power of the quartet.

The kind of match these four can produce together will be a treat as well. I know Vince McMahon and he's going to tell me ahead of time just to get prepped and he never did so I knew I wasn't going to be a part of it.
