11. Two Planned Title Matches For SummerSlam 2017 Being Nixed? WWE Already Giving Up On A Big Storyline?
After Bayley defeated Sasha Banks on Raw two weeks back, she became the #1 contender for the Raw Women’s Championship and is scheduled to receive a Title match against Alexa Bliss at SummerSlam 2017.
However, that might not happen. Bayley suffered a shoulder injury in her match against Nia Jax on last week’s Raw. While nothing is confirmed at this point regarding the match not taking place, below is what WWE posted about this:
“Based on what we have seen, it doesn’t seem likely that The Huggable One will be getting back into the ring anytime soon.If Bayley is unable to compete at SummerSlam, who will challenge the so-called “Goddess of WWE” for her coveted championship? Hopefully, details will emerge on Raw.”
Another originally planned Title match that might be taking place at SummerSlam 2017 is The Miz vs. Jason Jordan for the Intercontinental Championship. WWE officials were very high on the Kurt Angle – Jason Jordan storyline, but officials aren’t impressed with the reaction that this storyline has been getting. There have been talks of WWE giving up on this storyline, but nothing is confirmed at this point.
However, due to the not-so-great response towards this storyline, Jason might not be getting an Intercontinental Title match at SummerSlam 2017. We’ll keep you updated on this.
