Things looked to be headed towards AJ vs Orton for the WWE title, now that Jinder is champion it appears that it will likely be Jinder vs. Cena with Cena's Summerslam losing streak 99.99999% likely to continue.

So where exactly does that leave AJ, Orton, KO, Zayn and Nakamura?

There isn't a match other than Jinder vs Cena that you can call, even then, the match is incredibly weak and will be behind several Raw matches no doubt.

Is this likely to be another major event where SD gets shafted with the match ups?

If I had to have a wild guess for where the WWE are headed...
Jinder vs Cena - WWE title
KO vs Nakamura - US Title
AJ vs Ziggler
Orton vs Corbin (Mr. MITB)
Charlotte vs Naomi
Zayn vs Harper (Just to get Zayn on the card, no idea where he's going....)

Other than KO/Nakamura this is incredibly weak for a top tier PPV.

Re: SD's Summerslam plans?

John Cena v. Jinder Mahal (WWE Title)/Roman Reigns (Interpromotional Match) seems very likely for SummerSlam '17. Honestly, I would love to see AJ Styles v. Shinsuke Nakamura (despite being a WrestleMania-level match) and Sami Zayn v. Kevin Owens (US Title) at SS. :agree:

But, who knows if the WWE decides to a draft next month, which could cause a "shake-up" between both brands for SS. And, knowing Vince McMahon... I can see an interpromotional match between Finn Balor and AJ Styles at SS (even though they shouldn't), due to their "Bullet Club" history as well as the "seeds" that were planted last year. :chlol

Re: SD's Summerslam plans?

There's no way they're doing Cena/Roman at Summerslam, Vince is gonna save that for WM.

I bet Roman gets Goldberg at Summerslam, he's going to call him out next week.

With so many matches on the card I can see them giving 2-3 good matches and under-delivering on the rest.

Brock/Braun, Roman/Goldberg and Angle/HHH will probably be there top 3 matches.

AJ/Nakmaura, AJ/Orton, Cena/Nakamura etc. will be given away on SD or some b tier PPV. Summerslam and WM rarely gets big matches nowadays as the name sells the PPV itself.

AJ v Orton (they were teasing the match at live events when Orton was champion so I'm still hoping)

Jericho v KO for US Title

Nak v Corbin

And tag team & Women's match.

Summerslam is still 2 months away. I would have Jinder lose the belt to Aj a few weeks before the show.

Aj/Orton - Wwe title
Nakamura/Cena
Zayn/Ko - Us Title
Jinder/Rusev
Charlotte/Naomi

What are we going to do for the SD part of Summerslam, Vince?

The same thing we do every night, Pinky- I mean Paul. DOOM.

For the women: Carmella should win Mitb ---> Carmella cashes in successfully on Naomi ---> Becky beats Carmella for title ---> Becky vs Charlotte at SS where Becky retains

AJ and Owens should just resume and finish their rivalry, having the best match at SS

Jinder should beat American Hero Cena

Sami should have the second best match on the card beating Dolph

I don't care what happens with Nakamura

Who cares what happens with Randy

(so I guess Randy vs Nakamura?)

There should be a fatal four way tag team match with champion Usos vs Fashion Police vs AA vs Colons/Road Warriors, with Usos or Breezango winning

New Day should break up and have a triple threat where Big E turns heel, wins, and retires Kofi

Women's Championship
Noami(C) VS Charlotte VS Becky VS Natalya

Tag Team Championships
The New Day(C) VS The Usos

Rivalry Match(MITB Briefcase on the line)
Baron Corbin VS Sami Zayn

Rivalry Match maybe a #1 Contender's match for the WWE Championship
Randy Orton VS AJ Styles

Rivalry Match
Shane McMahon VS Rusev

I know Summerslam is 2 brands PPV but I can't think that these matches will not be on the show.

This actually seems pretty likely. The womens match and Corbin/Zayn or New Day/Usos might be on the preshow though

I always wanted a big triple threat like that.They could have done Cena vs Bryan vs Orton @2014 rumble.Also would have loved punk with Cena and Orton too.

Styles/Orton for the WWE Title
Jinder/Cena
Nakamura/Owens for US (maybe add Sami here)
Dillinger/Corbin
Naomi/Charlotte
Usos/New Day/Alpha

I would have thought they would have kept the title on Jinder, but with the ratings going the way they are, I do wonder if we are headed to a change to set up Styles/Orton at Summer slam.

Everyone knows it should be Cena/Nakamura and Styles/Orton. But they're going to come up with something worse like they did with Wrestlemania.
