Early WWE Summerslam Betting Odds for WWE Championship Match

WWE Rumors 2017: Jinder Mahal to Defend Title From Two Men?

It's now down to just John Cena and Shinsuke Nakamura to go up against Mahal in less than two months. He immediately established himself among his peers and earned a championship opportunity where he would dethrone Nakamura and go on to defend it in superb rematch. The WWE may have over-hyped this match just a little by repeatedly calling it a dream match, but they did get the crowd chanting "This is awesome!", which is not easy to do. However, the Cena and Corbin segment could have also been a one-off, intended mainly to give viewers a reason to tune into 205 Live after SmackDown Live.

WWE SummerSlam, for the third-consecutive year, will take place from Brooklyn's Barclays Center on Sunday, August 20, with a special start time of 7 p.m. EDT.

After AJ Styles defeated Kevin Owens in controversial fashion for the United States Championship, a rematch was granted.

The feud between Styles and Owens began back in May when Styles challenged Owens for the United States Championship. Cena has never faced Reigns in a singles match. Back in his time in Japan he was one of the cornerstones to New Japan Pro Wrestling, but to translate that success to America was another story. While it was going to be Cena's chance to get his record 17th title and become the greatest-ever champion by eclipsing Ric Flair, who also has 16 to his name, for Nakamura it was going to be his first-ever title shot. Still disoriented from getting hit, Chioda counted the pinfall and declared Styles the victor despite Owens' shoulder being up. I'm surprised it's taking place at SummerSlam rather than the rumored Owens vs. Shane McMahon match.

During the championship match scheduled for this week, referee Mike Chioda got knocked down and seemingly had an eye issue. AJ Styles, who is the current WWE United States champion is set to defend his US title at Summerslam and it looks like the USA title match will be one of the major attractions. While she could be the next Women's Champion, so could her partner, Carmella.

Champion Naomi gained some momentum by teaming up with Becky Lynch to beat Natalya and Carmella. John Cena really is The Nicest Man on The Planet. So the Sumemrslam for Rusev seems set and Orton made it clear with an RKO out of nowhere.
