SummerSlam, WWE's highly anticipated event, takes center stage after a thrilling Money In The Bank pay-per-view in London, England. The event marked a significant moment as Roman Reigns, the dominant Universal Champion, experienced his first pinfall defeat in over three and a half years.
Reigns' cousin and former ally, Jey Uso, emerged victorious in an intense clash known as The Bloodline Civil War. Jey Uso played a pivotal role in the rise of Roman Reigns as The Tribal Chief, and their captivating feud over the Universal Title in 2020 cemented Reigns' reign.
Now, with Uso's recent victory over the champion, reports from Wrestling Observer's Dave Meltzer suggest that Uso might find himself back in the title picture. The intriguing developments at Money In The Bank have set the stage for an exhilarating lineup of matches at SummerSlam, with Meltzer revealing six colossal encounters on the horizon.
The reported matches for SummerSlam are as follows:
- Roman Reigns vs. Jey Uso
- Cody Rhodes vs. Brock Lesnar
- Trish Stratus vs. Becky Lynch

Logan Paul's Anticipated SummerSlam Appearance
Furthermore, Meltzer disclosed that Logan Paul, the renowned social media influencer, is expected to make an appearance on the August 5th show in Detroit, MI.
While the specific opponent for Paul is yet to be confirmed, initial plans suggested a showcase in-ring match for the celebrity. As the buzz continues to build, fans eagerly await further announcements, including the potential involvement of Seth Rollins, Kevin Owens, Sami Zayn, and the anticipated return of Edge, scheduled for Friday Night SmackDown at MSG.
Logan Paul's presence in the men's Money In The Bank ladder match added an unexpected twist, as he found himself crashing through a ringside table after a daring Spanish Fly by Ricochet.
