WWE SummerSlam 2020 looks set to be the coming of age for a lot of people on the brink of stardom but the WWE could still bunker in and protect the established names instead.

WWE SummerSlam 2020 will take place on August 23rd and recently picked up the tag line “you’ll never see it coming”. This, as you might expect, strongly suggests that something big is going to happen, so we should all start looking now in case we don’t see it coming. Quick, check under your couch for the SummerSlam plot twist.

It’s definitely not Retribution, who have been the plot twist you never saw coming since you first heard it was coming two weeks ago.

WWE SummerSlam 2020 itself however is promising to be a very strong card. This is primarily through fresh exciting matchups like McIntyre vs Orton and Rollins vs Mysterio and also through rematches that have achieved a new level such as Rose vs Deville and The Fiend vs Braun Strowman. If SummerSlam is the end of the storylines for many of these rematches it should be remembered very fondly indeed.

Or Sasha Banks and Asuka, which is the rematch from the rematch of the initial match, will get a rematch a week later during the Payback pay per view. Now Payback we never saw coming.

Today I’m going to run down the card and give you my predictions of what’s going to happen during the show. Be warned, I’m the guy who kept predicting Roman Reigns losses. Clearly I am the absolutely insane voice you need in these turbulent times.

The current brand of Asuka, Sasha Banks and Bayley is very, very fluid at the moment and the champions at the end of the night could result in many different timelines going forward. Asuka losing both matches is of course the darkest timeline.

I feel it’s worth pointing out that the current Raw women’s champion is technically on SmackDown and by the end of the night the SmackDown women’s champion might be on Raw. Should Bayley and Sasha Banks lose their tag team championships at Payback, then Sasha Banks would end up on Raw and Bayley would have to stay on SmackDown, leading the two towards a tangle at Survivor Series.

What I’m trying to say is predictions are hard, basically.

Sasha Banks only recently became the champion, claiming the title after failing to beat Asuka in the rematch of her last failure to beat Asuka. If there’s one thing that’s been firmly established, it’s that Sasha Banks can not defeat Asuka.

As such, I’m predicting that Sasha Banks is going to defeat Asuka and end a run of brief, difficult to remember championship reigns. Asuka is without backup and Shayna Baszler has her eyes set on Banks’ gold.

Prediction: Sasha Banks
