On paper, this looks like it could be the strongest SummerSlam card in a long time. The Brand Extension has really opened the doors for fresh matchups and new developments on both brands. When matches like AJ Styles vs. John Cena and Brock Lesnar vs. Randy Orton are considered afterthoughts, you know it's a good card.
The event is taking place at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, NY, so we're going to get a very hot crowd on Sunday, with plenty of hardcore fans making the journey to New York.
Things feel right going into Sunday, as Roman Reigns is no longer headlining the event, but rather, is in the midcard. It seems he's going to have to climb his way back to the top, which should help him when he does eventually find himself in the top spot again.
There are now two brands and this is the first PPV with the Brand Extension in full effect. It should be a great baptism into the New Era. The WWE has to do some bold things to generate excitement post-SummerSlam, when creativity tends to get a little dry.
With that said, here are 10 bold predictions for SummerSlam.
10. Jon Stewart Gets Involved Again
Jon Stewart has been announced for SummerSlam. Last year, we saw him get involved in the WWE World Championship match, so it's not out of the realm of possibility that he gets involved in another match this year. Hopefully, it's not in a really meaningful match this time, but you can't rule it out. Either way, did WWE bring Stewart in just to do some skit? I don't think so. He'll get physically involved in a match on the card on Sunday.
