Summerslam 2022 Match Card, Start Time, How To Watch, And Predictions
Here is everything you need to know about the upcoming WWE PPV.
Summerslam is coming to Peacock this Saturday, July 30. WWE's biggest party of the summer will feature numerous matches between the company's biggest stars. The PPV--or PLE (premium live event) as WWE has been calling them--will even feature YouTuber Logan Paul taking on The Miz in a match.
While many of the matches are booked at Nissan Stadium in Nashville, Tennessee this Saturday, unfortunately, Riddle was recently injured, so his match with Seth Rollins has been canceled. Rollins went onto Twitter to apologize to those who were going to the show and to thank them for singing his song.
For anyone who purchased a ticket to #SummerSlam hoping to see me in action, I apologize. I did everything I could over the last 6 months to earn my spot on this show, but some things are out of my control. Thank you for always singing my song. They’ll hear ya someday.— Seth “Freakin’” Rollins (@WWERollins) July 27, 2022
Summerslam will consist of eight matches, as of this writing, and many of these matches will be for championships. Brock Lesnar returns again--after numerous reports he left the company when Vince McMahon did--and he'll be facing Roman Reigns in a Last Man Standing match for both of Reigns' titles. Check out what time the event is starting this Saturday below.
- 5 PM PT
- 7 PM CT
- 8 PM ET
- 1 AM BST (July 31)
- 10 AM AEST (July 31)
The times listed above are for the main card. Typically, there is also a Kickoff Show for WWE PPVs beginning one hour prior to the main card. However, this past year, WWE has shied away from any matches taking place on the show, which has made the Kickoff Show a tad pointless to many fans.
How to Watch:
If you want to watch Summerslam, you can get it through your satellite or cable provider or watch it on the Peacock streaming service. And while it does have a free tier, you will not be able to watch the WWE event through that. You'll need a Premium ($5 a month, with ads) or Premium Plus Peacock ($10 a month, no ads) account. Regardless of which tier you choose, there will be a few WWE-related ads throughout the show.
There are multiple ways to watch Peacock. Aside from watching it on mobile devices and on the PC, you can stream the service on Amazon Fire devices, Android TV, Apple TV, LG Smart TVs, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Roku, Samsung Smart TVs, Xbox One, Xbox Series X, Xbox Series S, Xfinity, and more.
This is currently what the match card looks like. There are eight matches in total, five of which are for championships. When was the last time the Intercontinental Championship was defended on a PPV? Check out the card below, and we'll keep it updated as changes are made.
- Roman Reigns (c) vs. Brock Lesnar (Last Man Standing Match for the Undisputed Championships)
- Liv Morgan (c) vs. Ronda Rousey (Smackdown Women's Championship)
- Bobby Lashley (c) vs. Theory (United States Championship)
- The Usos vs. The Street Profits (Undisputed WWE Tag Team Championship with Special Guest Referee Jeff Jarrett)
- Pat McAfee vs. Happy Corbin
- Bianca Belair (c) vs. Becky Lynch (Raw Women's Championship)
- Logan Paul vs. The Miz
- The Mysterios vs. Finn Bálor and Damian Priest The Judgment Day (No Disqualification Match)
The Usos vs. The Street Profits
When you have a special guest ref involved, they are going to affect the match in a major way. So keep that in mind as this moves forward because I have a strong feeling that the Bloodline will influence Jarrett in some way. However, even with Jarrett favoring The Usos--in my scenario--this is still going to be a win for The Street Profits. It's their time to become champs and have a solid run with those titles.
Prediction: The Street Profits
Bianca Belair vs. Becky Lynch
You know the drill if you've been following any predictions I've been doing over the past six years or so here at GameSpot. If Becky is on the card, I'm pulling for her. Sorry, Bianca. This will be a dynamite match, and I've been loving Bianca as champion, but I want this feud to keep going, and the best way to do that is to have Becky win the title at Summerslam, and then have a rematch with Bianca at Clash at the Castle--which would be amazing to bring to Wales in September.
Prediction: Becky Lynch
As for predictions in podcast form, check out the predictions episode of Wrestle Buddies, where hosts Mat Elfring and Chris E. Hayner discuss every match on the card.
