2.) Will there be any inconclusive finishes occurring at this PPV?
Amit Shukla: Three matches are currently on my list that may have an abrupt ending, and they happen to be the Universal Championship match (due to RETRIBUTION). The second one is Raw Women’s Championship match (due to Shayna Baszler). The final one on this list is the SmackDown Women’s Title match due to interference from Nikki Cross.
Chris Jeter: Optimally, the idea of non-finishes on any show that WWE is asking fans to pay for, let alone a “Big 4” pay-per-view should be a non-starter. But since Vince McMahon and his creative team are incapable of extending feuds without them, it would be foolish not to expect at least one — especially with the RETRIBUTION angle ongoing. Sure, it’s lazy booking that makes fans less inclined to invest time and money into the product, but that hasn’t stopped WWE before.
Kyla Hessler: The first match to come to mind for finishing inconclusively is the match that is scheduled between the Monday Night Messiah, and Dominik Mysterio; however, since this has been upgraded to a Street Fight match, this match will have a conclusive finish, even if there will be various interferences from outside competitors.
Either of the women’s title matches that Asuka will be wrestling in have the potential to have an inconclusive finish. This reigns true because she will be facing best friends, and current WWE Women’s Tag Team Champions Bayley and Sasha Banks in separate matches for each women’s respective single’s title. Chances are that The Role Models will stand in each other’s corner at ringside, and this tends to come with foul play. On more than one occasion, Bayley and Sasha have aided one another to become the winner of their matches, and they have done so by any means necessary.
Other than the matches that Asuka performs in, no other inconclusive finishes will happen at SummerSlam 2020.
Ernesto Solano: Perhaps Braun and Fiend get a dusty/inconclusive finish. I can’t see the Fiend losing straight-up and Braun is being built as too much of a force to lose without shenanigans either.
Samantha Schipman: We’re still talking about WWE, right? I definitely see this happening & both women’s title matches seem like good candidates.
