WWE 'SummerSlam' 2017: Match card, date, start time, predictions, details
On Sunday, Aug. 20, "SummerSlam" comes to the WWE Universe live from the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, N.Y.
The 2017 SummerSlam match card is stacking up to be absolutely massive, and — as per usual — boasts tons of potential.
Skyrocketed into a WWE Championship match, wrestling sensation Shinsuke Nakamura looks to dethrone Jinder Mahal. Nakamura scored a huge victory over John Cena on "SmackDown" in early August to earn the No. 1 contender's spot.
On the "RAW" side, the "Beast Incarnate" Brock Lesnar faces off against three hungry contenders: the vicious Samoa Joe, the "Monster Among Men" Braun Strowman and — of course — Roman Reigns.
Reigns seems to be destined for a lengthy WWE Universal Championship run, so it wouldn't shock anyone if he came out with the victory — but given Samoa Joe's momentum over these last few months, even after a loss to Lesnar at WWE's "Great Balls of Fire" in July, it wouldn't surprise anyone if he came out on top, either.
It's an action-packed show, with 11 matches scheduled — not including a potential WWE "RAW" Tag Team Championship match — for a four-hour show.
Here's everything you need to know about "SummerSlam."
