To be blatantly honest, I'm not looking forward to watching SummerSlam 2018 mainly because the card is full of rematches and underwhelming looking matches. The only match I'm interested in seeing is Samoa Joe vs AJ Styles for the WWE Title.

That said, I'm still going to order the WWE Network to see if this is worth watching for more than four hours.

This year's SummerSlam has loads of matches both on the main card and on the pre-show. Anyway, let's run down the entire card now and predict who is going to win.

(P)The B Team (c) vs The Revival - Raw Tag Team: The tag team division has really gone down the drain as WWE does not seem to be taking the division seriously.

No disrespect to The B Team, but they are a comedy team and should lose the tiles ASAP. Hopefully The Revival win so they can put some legitimacy back in the division.

(P) Rusev and Lana vs Andrade "Cien" Almas and Zelina Vega: The second pre-show match is this random mixed tag team match.

I have no opinion on this since I'm a fan of both teams. All I'm going to say is that I hope Almas and Vega win because they need to be pushed further up the card.

Cedric Alexander (c) vs Drew Gulak - Cruiserweight Title: Cedric Alexander has been one of the hardest working wrestlers on the roster right now and is very underrated.

He is able to make matches with any person great. I'm hoping Alexander can continue his reign because he's been a good champion so far.

The Miz vs Daniel Bryan: I'm not sure what to think about this match because I'm not fond of either guy.

Sure the build-up for the match has been good, but I'm not interested in the in-ring work of both men.Therefore, I'm guessing The Miz is going to win by cheating so this will prolong the feud past SummerSlam.

Finn Bálor vs Baron Corbin: These two have wrestled each other too many times for me to get excited.

The matches aren't bad, but the feud has gotten old very quick. That said, I think Balor is getting the victory here so hopefully he can move on to bigger and better things.

Shinsuke Nakamura (c) vs Jeff Hardy - US Title: This is an easy match to predict as Randy Orton is more than likely going to interfere and beat up Jeff Hardy to further his new heel persona.

I don't think a winner is crowned due to Orton's interference.

Braun Strowman (MITB holder) vs. Kevin Owens: This is a unique match since Kevin Owens has the chance to become the MITB holder.

However, I still think Vince McMahon is still high on Strowman so Owens is going to lose this match. Not to mention Owens was already Universal Champion so it's only fair Strowman gets the strap soon.

The Bludgeon Brothers vs The New Day - Smackdown Tag Titles: Another tag team match that isn't really very exciting.

I feel The New Day need to lose and break up because their act is starting to get stale. It will be interesting to see how the wrestlers in The New Day do if they go their separate ways.

Carmella (c) vs Becky Lynch vs Charlotte Flair - Smackdown Women's Title: WWE needs to get Carmella out of the Women's title picture as soon as they can.

Carmella may look attractive, but she's still a bad in-ring performer. Since Charlotte is likely going to headline WrestleMania next year, it's time for Becky Lynch to win the title here at SummerSlam.

Dolph Ziggler (c) (with Drew McIntyre) vs. Seth Rollins (with Dean Ambrose) - Intercontinental Title: This could be the second best match of the night just behind AJ Styles vs Samoa Joe.

That said, this is still a match we've seen in the past.

All I am going to say is that I feel Dean Ambrose is going to turn into a heel and attack Seth Rollins. A new feud between the Shield team members is long overdue.

Alexa Bliss (c) vs Ronda Rousey - Raw Women's Title: Much like Carmella, Alexa Bliss is nothing more than just a pretty face because her in-ring work is still boring and poor.

I'm hoping Ronda Rousey wins in under two minutes. I'll be cheering her on because I now own her official t-shirt! One armbar should do the trick!

AJ Styles (c) vs Samoa Joe - WWE Title: Even though this won't be the main event of SummerSlam 2018, it's my personal main event for the PPV. All the previous Joe vs Styles matches back in TNA have been great.

Hopefully Styles and Joe can keep their chemistry as they both have excellent in-ring skills.

Anyway as to who will win, I'm hoping WWE pulls the trigger on Samoa Joe. AJ Styles has already had a good run as champion, and now it's time for a new champion.

Brock Lesnar (c) vs Roman Reigns - Universal Title: WWE's main event for SummerSlam 2018 is looking predictable and boring to say the least. Nobody wants to see these two wrestle for the fourth time in their careers.

With Lesnar possibly leaving WWE to go back to the UFC, it's pretty easy to predict Roman Reigns is winning this match.

However, Reigns could lose the title minutes later if Braun Strowman decides to cash in his Money in the Bank briefcase before the PPV ends!
