Nakamura heading to SummerSlam

          The United States Championship was up for grabs Tuesday night in the opening match as AJ Styles defended against Kevin Owens. Controversy reigned supreme late in the bout as referee Mike Chioda was bumped, leaving Owens somewhat distracted as he prepared Styles for the Popup Powerbomb. The Phenomenal One countered and rolled KO up. The referee still dazed, counted the pin despite Owens' shoulder clearly being off the mat. Styles was declared the winner, and KO was left frustrated and inconsolable as he watched the replay of the botched decision.
                  Sami Zayn rode a two-match televised win streak into this week's show and sought to continue his winning ways against Aiden English in singles competition. The former Vaudevillian serenaded the WWE Universe for what felt like an eternity before the match between NXT alumni got underway. Zayn seemingly had English under control early, trapped in an arm bar, but the silver-tongued singer scored a shocking roll-up that earned him a much-needed victory. After the match, Mike and Maria Kanellis appeared on the stage, laughing at Zayn's misfortune.
                      Naomi and Natalya will do battle for the SmackDown Women's Championship on August 20 at SummerSlam, but they found themselves two partners Tuesday night and did battle in tag team competition. Naomi partnered with Becky Lynch to fight Natalya and Miss Money in the Bank, Carmella. Champion Naomi found herself beaten down and trapped in the unforgiving clutches of her No. 1 contender's vaunted Sharpshooter. An unexpected tag by Carmella proved the downfall for the heels, though, as Naomi delivered a devastating sliding slap and forced a tap out moments later. Natalya looked infuriated as she stomped off to the locker room, her shot at victory foiled by a selfish Carmella and a well-timed Bexploder by Lynch.
                    After several close calls against the United States champions like Kevin Owens and AJ Styles, Chad Gable looked to break out Tuesday as he battled another U.S. titleholder, Rusev. Gable stunned The Bulgarian Brute early, outwrestling him, but he fell victim to a gut wrench suplex. Back from the break, though, the American delivered his own suplex to seemingly shift control in his favor A big moon sault by Gable scored a near-fall. The Olympian tried for a rolling German suplex, but Rusev reversed and delivered a big kick for a near-fall of his own. Rusev grounded Gable and attempted The Accolade, but Gable slid out and applied an ankle lock. Rusev escaped, blasted him with a superkick and applied his trademark submission for the tapout victory. After the match, Rusev cut a promo demanding competition Enter, Randy Orton.The Viper dropped Rusev with an RKO to end the segment and ignite their rivalry.
                One of the most anticipated matches in recent memory headlined Tuesday's broadcast as Shinsuke Nakamura and John Cena made the dreams of fans across the globe come true in a No. 1 Contender match. A back-and-forth, hotly contested match saw Cena rolling late After Nakamura controlled the heart of the match, Cena fought back with his trademark stuff to a chorus of boos. One Attitude Adjustment was not enough to put down The King of Strong Style. He delivered another and tried to roll through and deliver a third, but Nakamura fought out of it and stunned Cena. A Kinshasa straight to the face of his opponent cashed Nakamura's ticket to SummerSlam and earned him the biggest win of his fledgling main-roster career.Nakamura going over clear was a pleasant surprise and makes him look like the heavy favorite to dethrone Jinder Mahal in Brooklyn at SummerSlam. After a massively disappointing showing in Philadelphia for Battleground, The King of Strong style is back on track and headed toward the most important moment of his WWE career.

New Raw Women's Champion Alexa Bliss

At Payback, Bliss defeated Bayley to become the Raw Women's Champion. In doing this, she became the first woman to ever become Raw and Smackdown Women's Champion. Bayley defended the Raw Women's Championship against Alexa Bliss in her hometown of San Jose, California.  Bliss performed a Snap DDT on Bayley to win the title. Though her win is also due to Bayley being thrown into the steel post. This match is the best match of Alexa Bliss so far and I can't wait to see what she will do to the Raw Women's Division now that she is the champion. Many questions are running through my head now like who will she be facing next? who will she feud with next? will she retain when she faces Bayley again? many questions and now we have to sit and wait to see how she is booked and hopefully they are going to make her keep that championship for a while because it is rightfully deserved she is a hard worker. Alexa was going to win no doubt in my mind as soon as I knew it was in Bay…

Alexa Bliss or Charlotte ?

The question on my mind is who is going to be the first women to win a title for the other brand is it going to be Alexa Bliss or is it going to be The Queen Charlotte. Both Alexa and Charlotte where the top of their respective brand and now because of the Superstar Shakeup they are now on the other brand and as seen this week they are in contention for the Raw and Smackdown Women's Titles.Alexa Bliss looks to capture the Raw Women’s Championship by winning the number 1 contenders match. Also, Charlotte just pinned the Smackdown Women’s Champion which shows everybody that The Queen will be nothing more than dominating on Smackdown not that we expect anything less from Charlotte. I am leaning more against Alexa, I think that she will be the first Women to have held both Smackdown and Raw Women's titles and hopefully when she does it will be a long title reign. Charlotte, though she is the Queen I do think that they would give Naomi a longer run as champion and for her champions…

Will Asuka KEEP her Championship

After what transpired  On the May 3 NXT, Asuka interfered in a number one contender's battle royal by attacking Ember Moon, Nikki Cross and Ruby Riot, the last three competitors, while stating that "no one was ready" for her, causing the match to be ruled a no contest. Afterward, it was announced that Asuka would next defend the NXT Women's Championship in a four-way match against Moon, Cross and Riot at NXT TakeOver: Chicago. Will this be the end of Asuka's reign? And if so who will be the next champion? Ember Moon? Ruby Riot? or will SAni†Y's own  Nikki Cross?  Personally, I think that Asuka will still be the champion. I think that when they bring her up to main she will simply vacate the championship and to me, that is the only way I see someone else taking the title from her. It's all about timing and the timing just isn't right they could have done more with Nikki Cross but they backed out and ended up doing nothing w…
