SummerSlam is now less than a month away and fans are starting to get seriously excited for the event. 

We already know that there are going to be a number of massive title matches in August, with recent episodes of SmackDown and RAW confirming just that. 

THE MAIN EVENTS 

In the match that's likely to close the show, Brock Lesnar will defend his Universal Championship against Roman Reigns.

That was confirmed on Monday - and one day later, the WWE Championship match was confirmed too. 

AJ Styles will defend his belt against Samoa Joe - after The Destroyer attacked the Phenomenal One from behind during their contract signing. 

It's also been confirmed that Seth Rollins will get another shot at Dolph Ziggler's Intercontinental Championship at SummerSlam too. 

On top of that, we already know who will be challenging for the SmackDown and RAW Women's titles.

Alexa Bliss will be defending the red brand's belt against Ronda Rousey and Becky Lynch will challenge Carmella for the SD Live championship.

THE UNDERCARD 

With five huge title matches already confirmed for Brooklyn's show, WWE need to turn their attention to filling the undercard next. 

They've already scheduled one non-title match, with Kevin Owens and Braun Strowman continuing their feud, one that's been running since Money in the Bank. 

As Braun's briefcase is on the line, there's potential for a match like that to steal the show - especially if KO wins - and walks out of SummerSlam with the contract.

However, judging by the latest rumours, the excitement may end there. 

RUMOURED SUMMERSLAM MATCHES

The Wrestling Observer Newsletter have recently noted that there are several SummerSlam matches that WWE are yet to announce, but seem like locks at this point. 

And some are very, very predictable. 

Per Ringside News, WON reports that singles matches including Daniel Bryan vs The Miz, Finn Balor vs Baron Corbin and Bobby Roode vs Mojo Rawley are all likely to take place.

Apparently, the United States Championship match could well be a triple threat, between titleholder Shinsuke Nakamura, Jeff hardy and Randy Orton. 

Finally, Cedric Alexander vs Drew Gulak for the WWE Cruiserweight Title is also very likely at this point. 

Of course, Bryan vs Miz will be one to watch - as that feud has been building for a very long time. But the US title match seems a little bit too predictable.
