Reigns vs Cena for Universal Championship

WWE Summerslam 2021 has one aim this year to not only be “The Biggest Party of the Summer” but also be the biggest PPV for 2021. This distinction of being the biggest WWE show of the year usually goes to WWE Wrestlemania.

The company did manage to make it a memorable Wrestlemania this year, with live fans getting a chance to attend the show, in middle of the Thunderdome Era. But only limited fans attended the event, that was spread over two nights. Now, because WWE could not deliver a full-scale event, they want to do it at WWE Summerslam.

WWE has left no stone unturned and is tapping into every possible resource to put up the show on a massive scale. The biggest star of the company, John Cena, has also made his return and will be appearing at Summerslam. This is not all, legendary Superstar Goldberg has also been announced for a match at Summerslam.

But just the card of the event is never enough for delivering a blockbuster event. It seems like WWE has got that covered too. They have been delivering one great show after another. While this is common for Smackdown, but Raw is slowly getting back on track too.

This build is nothing like something that has been seen on WWE in a really long time. While there is still 3 weeks to go for the event, as of now it seems like we might actually witness the biggest PPV of 2021.

3 matches have been announced for WWE Summerslam 2021

We are still a couple of weeks away from the PPV, but 3 of the matches have already been announced officially for the event:

  • Roman Reigns vs John Cena for WWE Universal Championship
  • Bobby Lashley vs Goldberg for WWE Championship
  • Nikki A.S.H. vs Charlotte Flair vs. Rhea Ripley for Raw Women’s Championship

The current storylines are pointing towards a Smackdown Women’s Championship between Bianca Belair and Sasha Banks. Damian Priest is likely to challenge Sheamus for the United States Championship. But one of the biggest matches of the night could be Raw Tag Team Championship match between AJ Styles with Omos and Randy Orton with Riddle.

WWE Summerslam airs live on 21st August, 2021.
