Plans For WWE SummerSlam, Title Matches To Be Announced, More

SummerSlam Plans, Title Matches To Be Announced, More
Below are some news and plans for WWE SummerSlam according to the Wrestling Observer Newsletter.


WWE Women's Tag Team Champions The IIconics will defend their titles in a Fatal 4 Way. The match will see Alexa Bliss and Nikki Cross vs. Asuka and Kairi Sane vs. Sonya Deville and Mandy Rose vs. champions Peyton Royce and Billie Kay.

This will actually be the first pay-per-view title defense for The IIconics since they won the belts from Sasha Banks and Bayley at WrestleMania 35 in the Fatal 4 Way. Their only other TV title match came on the June 17 RAW, a win over Bliss and Cross.

Another title match for SummerSlam is set to be announced on Tuesday's WWE 205 Live episode as Drew Gulak is scheduled to defend the WWE Cruiserweight Title against Oney Lorcan.

In other news on matches for SummerSlam, the Observer also reported Drew McIntyre vs. Cedric Alexander and various WWE 24/7 Title activities on the show. There's no word yet on exactly what they have planned for the WWE 24/7 Title at SummerSlam, but the current champion is the pregnant Maria Kanellis.

Ali vs. WWE Intercontinental Champion Shinsuke Nakamura is rumored for SummerSlam, but not confirmed. There's no word yet on what RAW Tag Team Champions Luke Gallows and Karl Anderson might be doing at SummerSlam, or SmackDown Tag Team Champions Big E and Xavier Woods. There was some fan speculation on a Champions vs. Champions non-title match but the Observer noted that the match is not listed on the latest internal version of the completed show.

As noted, Roman Reigns vs. Daniel Bryan plus Dolph Ziggler vs. Goldberg are also planned to be announced for the SummerSlam card soon. WWE currently has Ziggler vs. The Miz announced, but that is a red herring as Goldberg's return should be announced this coming week.
