With SummerSlam weeks away, what dream match would our writers like to see?
The card is shaping up nicely in my opinion. With all the high-end championship matches already announced, and clear programs shaping up to build future matches; I’m pretty stoked about SummerSlam. The fatal four-way for the Universal title should be a good watch. I like that Shinsuke Nakamura is number one contender and will battle Jinder Mahal on the second largest WWE pay-per-view of the year. AJ Styles versus Kevin Owens rarely disappoints, and adding Shane McMahon into the mix will offer a different dynamic. I also love, love, love the fact that Naomi is finally getting a solid one-on-one program within her SD LIVE Women’s Championship reign; it’s a nice surprise that Natalya is finally being placed in the title race spotlight, as well.
With Bayley injured on last week’s Monday Night RAW, the women’s title match on that brand seems up in the air, and I’m feeling ‘so-so’ about the Randy Orton versus Rusev program as I’m not really ‘invested’ in it yet; but, otherwise, the show is shaping up nicely.
I have one. And it’s a dream match we won’t likely get ever, or certainly not any time soon. That match? Daniel Bryan and The Miz. I have to think that there is something there, otherwise why would we still see the constant needling from Miz, and why would we see the friction continue by way of the announce team (Miz kicks/It kicks versus Yes kicks). To me, there’s still something there. If it was completely dead, never to ever happen, why waste time at all?
I wish that one would happen for us, whether in Brooklyn, or New Orleans, or anywhere.
For there to be a dream match, WWE would have to bring in someone who rarely wrestles. Yes, even less than Brock Lesnar. I’m not sure if there are any big names from the past who the fans want to see. Shawn Michaels seems content on retirement, Triple H isn’t a big draw, Sting’s neck is shot, and there questions about Kurt Angle’s future in wrestling. I do have to note how WWE has been dropping the Undertaker’s name more frequently and even started questioning if he’s actually retired. Personally, Undertaker’s farewell match was borderline terrible but I don’t think he has anything left in the tank.
There’s always Goldberg, but he did his thing last year with the perfect exit.
If I have to pick, I’d like to see The Rock & Ronda Rousey team. There’s already the storyline from a years back with Triple H and Stephanie McMahon in place. I feel the drawing power of The Rock & Rousey teaming would help sell the event. The hardest part might be finding time for The Rock. He’d probably be down to wrestle and Rousey could easily join WWE now that she’s basically done with MMA.
