Becky Lynch vs Zoey Stark
Becky Lynch failed to beat Zoey Stark two weeks back after interference from Trish Stratus. This came to bite her when she asked Trish for a rematch. Trish then put a condition that Becky need to beat Zoey to get a match against her. Becky was ready for it, but Trish added conditions if case Becky loses. The conditions are that Becky would have to get on her knees in front of Trish and say, “Thank You, Trish”. Will Becky be able to avoid this humiliating situation when she faces Zoey Stark?
Seth Rollins & Finn Balor Contract Signing
Seth Rollins and Finn Balor will feature in a contract-signing segment to make their match at SummerSlam official. Rollins was clearly livid at Balor’s unprovoked attack last week, following which the match was announced by WWE. This will be the third clash between Rollins and Balor, and it will not be far-fetched to expect some sort of stipulation to be added to this match. Will this contract signing lead the story toward that stipulation?
Drew McIntyre and Gunther Face-to-Face
Drew McIntyre made an exciting return at Money in the Bank PPV event by attacking Intercontinental Champion Gunther. He also saved Riddle from Imperium and the duo even managed to beat Imperium in a tag team match. Last week, Drew was not on the show when Gunther beat Riddle. So, the Ring General called him out to meet him in the ring this week. A showdown at SummerSlam seems impending. But, what will have in this face-off?
Logan Paul & Ricochet
Ricochet has been calling out Logan Paul to face him in a match, but Paul refused to take on the high flyer. Ricochet showed a glimpse of his abilities last time they came face-to-face on RAW two weeks back. Also, they have created special moments in Royal Rumble and Money in the Bank matches. What more will Ricochet have to do to convince Paul to face him in a singles match?
Cody Rhodes responds to Brock Lesnar
Brock Lesnar showed off his vicious side last week when he beat up Cody Rhodes in front of his family in his hometown. Lesnar also accepted Cody’s challenge to face him at SummerSlam event. However, there have been rumors of a stipulation getting added to this rubber match. Will we get to know about it when Cody responds to Lesnar’s attack this week on RAW?
Tommaso Ciampa vs Bronson Reed
Bronson Reed reaped last week what he sowed the previous week. Tommaso Ciampa attacked Reed during his match against Shinsuke Nakamura to cause a disqualification. That was in response to Reed attacking Ciampa and costing him the match against The Miz. Now, they will clash one-on-one on this week’s RAW
