Getty ImagesWWE’s annual SummerSlam event is this Sunday night from the Barclays Center. For the third straight year, WWE’s second-biggest show will rock the house in Brooklyn.
WrestleMania has become WWE’s Super Bowl, the mainstream event that brings in casual fans from around the globe. But SummerSlam is the event for the fans, the ones who obsess over matchups and storylines and the like. And this year’s card is shaping up to be a great one.
In the main event, we have four monsters who are set to tear the arena apart in pursuit of the WWE Universal Championship, the top title on the “Monday Night Raw” brand. Brock Lesnar, the reigning, defending, undisputed champion, will put his title on the line against Roman Reigns (the face of WWE today), Braun Strowman (the 385-pound Monster Among Men), and Samoa Joe (the man who nearly captured the title from Lesnar in July) in a Fatal Four Way match.
On the “SmackDown Live” brand, WWE Champion Jinder Mahal will defend his belt against Shinsuke Nakamura, the Japanese sensation who has captivated audiences with his charisma and unique fighting style. Jinder has barely escaped his previous title defenses in narrow victories thanks to the Singh Brothers, who always seem to show up and interfere right when Jinder is on the ropes.
Elsewhere on the card, Dean Ambrose and Seth Rollins have finally reunited. The former Shield brothers will attempt to wrestle the Raw Tag Team Championship away from Cesaro and Sheamus. AJ Styles will defend the WWE United States Championship against Kevin Owens with Shane McMahon as the special guest referee. And last but by no means least, we have a pair of women’s matches, as Alexa Bliss defends the Raw Women’s Championship against Sasha Banks, and Naomi puts the SmackDown Women’s Championship on the line against Natalya.
The 13-match card is stacked, and WWE is making it available free of charge to anyone who signs up for a free trial month of the WWE Network.
And on top of NXT Takeover: Brooklyn and SummerSlam this weekend, fans can get immediate access to more than 8,000 hours of WWE content, including classic episodes of “Monday Night Raw” and “SmackDown,” every pay-per-view in WWE history, and even shows from other promotions such as WCW and ECW.
You can get 30 days of the WWE network for free (including SummerSlam this weekend) by signing up for a trial here.
