Here’s what we think will go down at SummerSlam. Be sure to drop down into our comments section and let us know who you think’s winning what.
Cruiserweight Championship Match: Akira Tozawa (c) vs. Neville
What Should Happen: The match that was supposed to inhabit this spot ended up happening on Raw, with Tozawa taking the Cruiserweight Championship from Neville six days before SummerSlam. Switching the title back on SummerSlam now would be a very WCW Road Wild thing for them to do.
