Gunther (c) vs. Matt Riddle [Intercontinental Championship]

Gunther will retain his title against Matt Riddle because he is on the verge of surpassing the Honky Tonk Man’s IC Title record. As long as he holds the title until September, he will accomplish that milestone, and WWE loves milestones. Gunther has been an impeccable IC Champion and it would be well-deserved for him to accomplish that feat. There is no compelling reason to end his title reign before September, unless Vince McMahon is still hellbent on burying Gunther, as was rumored in 2022. Unfortunately for Riddle, he is just a stepping stone for Gunther right now.

Hopefully, Randy Orton returns for SummerSlam to finally feud with Riddle and put an end to that story whilst Big E returns to challenge Gunther and wrap up that New Day-Imperium story as well.

Prediction: Gunther

Rhea Ripley (c) vs. Natalya [World Heavyweight Championship]

Rhea Ripley will retain her title against Natalya because she has been going on a tear as a dominant heel champion since dethroning Charlotte Flair at WrestleMania 39. She already squashed Natalya and already teased future feuds with Raquel Rodriguez and Becky Lynch. It is likely that Raquel will be her SummerSlam opponent and Becky Lynch will be her WrestleMania opponent since they are the most credible opponents Ripley could battle to solidify her title reign. Ripley is the top heel in this division and there is no reason to end her title reign this soon.

As a side note, it is slightly frustrating that UK superstars like Tegan Nox from Wales and Piper Niven from Scotland were neither considered for this title match nor utilized on Raw at all.

Prediction: Rhea Ripley

Seth Rollins (c) vs. Finn Balor [World Heavyweight Championship]

Seth Rollins will retain his title against Finn Balor since he only recently won the title at the last PPV. Finn Balor is from Ireland and WWE wanted to capitalize on the home-court advantage he would have in this bout. Rollins and Balor were actually the Raw finalists for this brand-new World Heavyweight Championship, so Balor has the momentum, buildup, and credibility for this title opportunity. He also has a lot of history with Rollins, especially tracking back to their universal title match at SummerSlam 2016. When Balor battled Seth for the universal title, Balor won.

Now, with the babyface and heel roles reversed, Seth Rollins will flip the switch and retain the title on his first PPV title defense.

Prediction: Seth Rollins
