Tye Dillinger vs. Aiden English (Kickoff Match)
Winner: Aiden English
Why: This feud has been on and off. Dillinger defeated English on the Backlash Pre-Show. Since then English has actually been the one who has gotten more consistent TV time. Because of that, I’m expecting English to win.
Sami Zayn vs. Mike Kanellis
Winner: Mike Kanellis
Why: I really don’t care for Mike Kanellis or this whole “Power of Love” gimmick. He defeated Zayn on SmackDown with the help of Maria. I’m expecting to see something similar here.
Charlotte Flair vs. Becky Lynch vs. Natalya vs. Tamina vs. Lana (Five-Way Elimination Match to determine Naomi’s opponent at SummerSlam)
Why: Since Becky submitted Charlotte on Smackdown, I believe the final two of this elimination match will be Becky and Charlotte. This time Charlotte will get the win and will face Naomi at Summerslam.
United States Champion AJ Styles vs. Kevin Owens
Winner: AJ Styles
Why: Since Styles won the U.S. title, WWE has been teasing John Cena and Shinsuke Nakamura as potential challengers. With those teases I expect Styles to successfully retain and defend the title against Cena or Nakamura at SummerSlam.
Shinsuke Nakamura vs. Baron Corbin
Winner: Shinsuke Nakamura
Why: Historically, The Money in the Bank briefcase holder suffers a couple Ls before they cash in. I’m expecting Nakamura to get the win and challenge for either the WWE or U.S. title at SummerSlam.
SmackDown Tag Team Champions The Usos vs. The New Day
Winners: The New Day
Why: They’re not many teams left in the SmackDown Tag Team Division. I believe WWE creative will be looking to milk this rivalry as long as they can. In order to keep this rivalry going, they need to put the belts on The New Day.
John Cena vs. Rusev (Flag Match)
Winner: John Cena
Why: Before this week’s SmackDown I was leaning towards Rusev winning. After SmackDown I strongly believe Cena is going to get the win. Cena’s promo and the post promo beat down from Rusev makes me think Cena will be getting revenge on Sunday. I’ve also seen videos of Cena asking fans to come watch him defend America at Battleground.
WWE Champion Jinder Mahal vs. Randy Orton (Punjabi Prison Match)
Winner: Jinder Mahal
Why: This rivalry needs to end. The only way for that is for Jinder to win. Then we can all hope and pray that he loses the title at SummerSlam.
