WWE Linear & US Championship
John Cnea (c) vs Kevin Owens

WWE Championship
Seth Rollins (c) vs Brock Lesnar

WWE Intercontinental Championship
The Ryback (c) vs The Big Show vs The Miz

WWE Tag Team Championships
Primetime Players (c) vs The New Day

Somehow a Grudge Match
Roman Reigns vs Bray Wyatt

& more! How hyped are you going in on a scale of 9 to 10?

10 for me.

I'm not sure if I'm hyped for Lesnar-Rollins. I want to be, Rollins is one of my favourites but he's been booked so badly since winning the belt. If it's good, it'll be amazing, but it could just end up being a 15-on-1 cluster against Brock.

Excited for Rollins to continue the Triple H tribute act and give Lesnar a bad one on one match.

Samuel might actually be onto something here. Besides the Royal Rumble three-way, Rollins hasn't impressed me at all since leaving The Shield. I don't have high hopes for this Lesnar match, mainly because the build has been all wrong. Rollins should be going into this match without the goons and with more confidence than ever after beating Ambrose clean last month. Instead, we've gotten wacky segments like the one that opened up Raw last night. Lesnar has only had bad matches with Triple H since he's come back and it would only be fitting that he has a stinker with Hunter Jr.

Excited for Owens/Cena III. I said the same thing after the first match, but I wish they would've held off on this until Summerslam, especially because they have an out by doing Owens vs. Cesaro on this show and saving the third Cena match for Summerslam. Regardless, it should be a great match.

The thing is, after two PPVs that looked good on paper, this one barely looks appealing. And it has BROCK LESNAR! That just ain't right.

WWE Linear & US Championship
John Cnea (c) vs Kevin Owens" Case of diminishing returns. And even then having gone back and watched their two previous encounters they don't hold up to the pedestal they were put on or even they REALLY GOOD "rating" I was giving them.

WWE Championship
Seth Rollins (c) vs Brock Lesnar: This could be great but like I was just saying I'm not exactly holding my breath. Would not be shocked if the Kofi match was better.

WWE Intercontinental Championship
The Ryback (c) vs The Big Show vs The Miz: Why?

WWE Tag Team Championships
Primetime Players (c) vs The New Day: This will be good but not exactly giving too much of a hoot over this again.

Somehow a Grudge Match
Roman Reigns vs Bray Wyatt: This could actually be a great match with SUPER WORKER Roman Reigns getting in there with a game Wyatt who has shown the ability to have great matches. Sparingly but they've happened. We could also easily get a complete stinker with Wyatt gimmickry coming into the fold hot and heavy.

HYPE RATING: Eh, 3

I have to believe there will be 1, if not 2, screwy finishes in the two matches I'm most excited for (Owens/Cena and Seth/Lesnar). I just don't see anything on the horizon for Summerslam that won't require a rematch in one of those matches.

On paper, I'm looking forward to 3 of the 5 announced matches (IC and Tag match not so much). Given the comments of Dave on today's show, I wonder if the plan for Paige vs. The Bella Triplets might be to bring one or two of the NXT four up to team with her. I mean, that's what I would do.

I'm pretty excited for this one. On paper it is a lot more appealing than the last few shows. There is one big first time matchup that COULD be great and is at least intriguing and another that is continuing one of the best things the company has done all year. They could easily mess it up, but it seems can't miss to me going in.

Brock vs Seth.
Cena vs Owens.

Those two alone likely make it worth it. The tag should be fun, and if they add something like with Cesaro, Barrett, Swagger or Ziggler we'll likely have a really good show overall.

I couldn't care less about this card apart from Cena Vs. Owens. WWE has put in some real work to make me not care about the WWE title match at all; I mean it's obviously just my opinion but how could anyone care about Brock "The Ultimate Underdog" Lesnar *Overcoming The Authority.*

I really hope they can fit Cesaro somewhere on the card though. After him and Cena absolutely killed it the other night he at least deserve's some sort of presence on the show or even Pre-Show.

I don't think they have been the same. The triple threat was completely different, and the Reigns one started off similar to the Cena matches but evolved very differently. He's using the same limited moveset, but the matches feel very different to me.
