WWE of PPVs for 2022: SummerSlam date, location, start time, how to watch The WWE is ramping up for their biggest event of the summer as SummerSlam approaches. The 2022 edition of the event will be the 35th in WWE history. SummerSlam goes down in Nashville on July 30. It is one of WWE’s biggest shows of the year and is likely to live up to that status once again as they have already planned several big matches, including a Last Man Standing match between undisputed champion Roman Reigns and longtime rival Brock Lesnar.
On Sept. 3, WWE brings a pay-per-view event back to the UK with Clash at the Castle from Principality Stadium in Cardiff, Wales. The countdown is on for WWE’s biggest event of the summer. SummerSlam goes down on July 30 from Nissan Stadium in Nashville. This year represents the 35th time WWE has held SummerSlam and they’re going big. The long rivalry between Roman Reigns and Brock Lesnar will continue in the show’s main event. Reigns will defend his undisputed championship against Lesnar in a Last Man Standing Match that will likely see the two men tear each other apart. The build to the show has started but the full card is far from finalized. With that in mind, let’s take a look at what we know — and what we expect — at WWE SummerSlam.
WWE SummerSlam Matches:
Roman Reigns vs Brock Lesnar: For years, WWE has gone back to Reigns vs. Lesnar to top major cards. They’ve returned to that well once again by having Lesnar return after Reigns beat Riddle to retain his undisputed championship. The two most recently met at WrestleMania, with Reigns getting the win. Now they meet again, this time under Last Man Standing rules.
obby Lashley vs. Theory: Lashley beat Theory to win the title at Money in the Bank. Lashley, meanwhile, will be looking to build momentum as the holder of a secondary title after previously being in the mix as a world title contender.
Pat McAfee vs. Happy Corbin: Corbin has taken issue with McAfee’s digs on commentary, leading to several confrontations. McAfee finally laid out a challenge for a match at SummerSlam. After the conclusion of Money in the Bank, Corbin attacked McAfee and accepted the match. McAfee has put on several very fun performances in NXT and even had a solid match with Theory at WrestleMania. After beating Theory, McAfee lost an impromptu match to Vince McMahon. Corbin has not won a pay-per-view match — including being on the losing side of two Survivor Series tag matches — since December 2019.
The Usos vs The Street Profits: However, replays showed that Montez Ford’s shoulder was actually up at the time of the pin. That’s good news for fans as there’s potential for an even better match between the teams on the big stage of SummerSlam. Authority figure Adam Pearce announced Tennessee’s own Jarrett as the special guest referee for the match.
Liv Morgan vs Ronda Rousey: Morgan won the Money in the Bank contract and cashed it in hours later, scoring a pin on Rousey after Rousey defeated Natalya to retain the title. That successful cash-in gave Morgan her first run as a WWE champion. Now, she’ll have to beat Rousey again, this time without Rousey coming off a grueling win seconds prior.
Bianca Belair vs Becky Lynch: Lynch infamously won the SmackDown title from Belair in less than 30 seconds at last year’s SummerSlam. Still, Belair now has an opportunity to erase the 2021 SummerSlam debacle.
Riddle vs. Seth Rollins: Riddle and Rollins have been mixing it up on Raw for weeks. Rollins has attacked Riddle multiple times, including hitting him with a pair of stomps after Riddle appeared on Kevin Owens’ “KO Show.”
The Miz vs. Logan Paul: The Miz and Paul teamed at WrestleMania to defeat The Mysterios. After that match, Miz turned on Paul, attacking him and landing a Skull-Crushing Finale. Paul eventually began posting on social media angling for a one-on-one match with Miz. That changed on Raw when Paul appeared on Miz TV and threw down the challenge again while insulting Miz. Miz finally accepted and the SummerSlam clash was officially on. sources by
