#14 WWE Road to Summer Slam & NJPW G1


Officially on the Road to Summer Slam in 2 weeks, we saw the feuds on RAW and SmackDown Live begin to solidify leading to matches being booked for the big summer PPV.

Paul Heyman gives Kurt Angle an ultimatum, The Miz blows up Jason Jordan on MizTV, and we see three of the four contenders for the Universal Championship collide in a triple-threat main event.

Over on SmackDown Live, AJ Styles and Kevin Owens continue to flip-flop over the US Title, Aiden English wins his second in a row, Fashion Files goes Twin Peaks, and we get our dream match where Shinsuke Nakamura almost ends John Cena.

In NXT, we’re putting the final touches on matches for Takeover Brooklyn III, Johnny Wrestling gets in the ring again, Asuka cuts a promo in a pantsuit before receiving a gift from Ember Moon, and Bobby Roode is still just a BOSS.  Sonya Deville faces Charlotte’s Final Form, Aleister Black gets taken to his limit by Kyle O’Reilly, and Hideo Itami gets a match at Takeover versus Aleister Black, in a match where we fully expect someone to die.

In the rest of the Wide World of Wrasslin, Progress 53 is now available on-demand, WCPW is gearing up for their Pro Wrestling World Cup, and Ring of Honor had an all-women’s show called Women of Honor.

Lucha Underground Cueto Cup is down to the Final 6 competitors, and the NJPW G1 Tournament just gets better and better the closer we get to the end!

This and SO much more this week!  Enjoy!
