WWE Championship Match: Drew McIntyre (c) vs. Randy Orton
In the second match already confirmed for SummerSlam, Drew McIntyre will be defending the WWE Championship against “The Legend Killer” Randy Orton. While McIntyre has been a more than capable champion, this is a challenge unlike any he’s seen so far.
Not only is Randy Orton a multi-time champion and amazing in-ring competitor, but he’s firing on all cylinders like never before. “The Legend Killer” is back, and he’ll be looking to kill the legend of the Claymore before it can fully be written. However, that also means this can be the biggest defense of McIntyre’s reign so far.
Prediction: Drew McIntyre retains the WWE Championship
Raw Women’s Championship Match: Sasha Banks (c) vs. Asuka
In the main event of SummerSlam 2020, we’ve got two of the best in-ring competitors in WWE today. We’ve also got the Golden Role Models completely backed into a corner against the most dangerous and terrifying version of Asuka they’ve ever come up against.
With Kairi Sane taken out of the picture by Bayley, Asuka now has nothing to lose and will be seeking vengeance at any cost. As a result, there’s no denying this deserves to be the main event. On top of that, Banks will be in a very difficult position going into this match.
Not only will she have lost the WWE Women’s Tag Team Titles earlier in the night, Banks will be competing with a demoralized former SmackDown Women’s Champion at her side. Unfortunately, that agony won’t be ending, as the struggles earlier in the night will likely catch up with her against Asuka’s “Final Form,” leading to a new Raw Women’s Champion.
Prediction: Asuka is the new Raw Women’s Champion
