SummerSlam is this Sunday, and all fans are getting hyped up for 'The Biggest Party of The Summer'. Most of the matches on the card have been set up pretty well, and it's going to be hard to pick winners for some of them. However, I'll be trying to do exactly that, with some predictions
Match #1: Stephen Amell and Neville vs King Barrett and Stardust
Celebrity matches are the easiest to predict, and as such I'll be getting this one out of the way first. Unless Amell is going to be in the WWE for more than one match, I can't really see this match as being anything else except another loss for Barrett and Stardust. That's a pity, but at least Neville will get a win under his belt. Nothing much to say here.
Predicted winners: Neville and Stephen Amell

Match #2: Dolph Ziggler vs Rusev
This match hasn't really had any build up at all, as Ziggler was missing since Rusev (kayfabe) injured him on Raw to give him time to film his movie. Ziggler made a triumphant return on Monday, hitting Rusev with a jumping DDT and a Superkick.
Both superstars featured in title matches at WrestleMania, but since then have been relegated to the lower mid-card. I think Ziggler will get the win over Rusev, especially with fan favourite Lana by his side. Whoever comes out of this bout, the loser will have taken another blow to their already downhill momentum.
Predicted winner: Dolph Ziggler
Match #3: Randy Orton vs Sheamus
These two seem to have fought each other more times than I can count. With each match however, their current pointless rivalry is getting more and more stale. Randy got the win the last time, leading me to believe that Sheamus will get one back this time. Until Sheamus starts winning more often, I can't see him ever cashing in successfully.
Predicted winner: Sheamus
Match #4: Divas Three Team Elimination Match
With the Divas Revolution upon us, it seems fitting that all three new teams will be featured in one night on the card. Momentum has been with Charlotte and Sasha Banks. However, I have a feeling WWE just may have Team Bella get the win. This would be strategic, as it gives Nikki a much needed win before she takes on someone for the Divas title. A win here will make her look credible for that match.
Predicted winners: Team Bella
Match #5: Bray Wyatt and Luke Harper vs Dean Ambrose and Roman Reigns
Formerly The Shield and The Wyatt Family, both of these factions are missing a member, for very different reasons. Many seem to agree on the fact that either Roman Reigns or Dean Ambrose will turn heel. I personally believe it will be Ambrose, but I'd love to see a Reigns heel turn. either way, there is no smoke without fire, and if one does turn, Bray and his follower will get the win
Predicted winners: Bray Wyatt and Luke Harper
Match #6: Cesaro vs Kevin Owens
With two very talented wrestlers, I think we could have a match of the year candidate. Cesaro has been looking strong lately, but Kevin Owens is likely to lose his title rematch with Finn Balor and if he loses to Cesaro that would be two losses in two nights. I still do think that the Swiss Superman will get the win, but either way watch out for what could be match of the night.
Predicted Winner: Cesaro
Match #7: Tag Team Championship: The Prime Time Players(c) vs The New Day vs Los Matadores vs The Lucha Dragons
PTP defend their tag team titles in what should be a fun match. If the title does change hands, which seems likely, it looks most likely to be New Day getting the gold. Los Matadores don't seem ready for a title reign, but I have a feeling that the Lucha Dragons could surprise us. Kalisto especially has been booked very well since his debut and I really think that the masked luchadores may shock everyone by holding the titles aloft at the end of the match
Predicted Winners: The Lucha Dragons
Match #8: Intercontinental Championship Triple Threat Match:Ryback(c) vs Big Show and The Miz
This match's winner seems pretty obvious. No one wants to see another Big Show title reign, and it's pretty obvious that Miz isn't going to get booked for a championship reign anytime soon,despite his talent. Ryback will obviously win this, to add some strength to his title reign. Anything else and I'll be shocked.
Predicted Winner: Ryback
Match #9: Winner Takes All Champion vs Champion: John Cena vs Seth Rollins
As much as I'd like to see the former architect of the Shield holding two titles, it wouldn't make sense as that would make WWE only have two champions. It would definitely be a huge step backwards if John Cena won AGAIN, so there really can't be a clean winner here. I think there will be an interference. I don't think Triple H will turn on Seth Rollins as many have said, but I do think there's a possibility that someone will attack John Cena to set up a US Title feud. What I'm sure of is, no one will walk out with two titles
Predicted result: No contest/ John Cena wins by DQ
Match #10: Brock Lesnar vs The Undertaker
The match that everyone wants to see. The return of the Phenom. Undertaker has been established as the heel here, but that doesn't mean that the fans wouldn't prefer the Undertaker to win. The Deadman remains a fan favorite, and I don't think they would bring back the Undertaker to feed him to Lesnar. I'm going for an Undertaker win, despite the fact that whoever gets the upper hand before the match normally loses on the night. Whatever happens, it'll certainly be a match to remember, and hopefully a pay per view to remember.
Predicted Winner: The Undertaker
