Updated 2023 WWE SummerSlam Match Card Ahead of PPV
The biggest party of the summer will emanate from the Motor City on Saturday night when Detroit plays host to WWE SummerSlam.
The pay-per-view has long been one of WWE’s tentpole events, responsible for some of the most memorable moments in the history of the company. Given how stacked the card is this year, the 2023 iteration promises to add to WWE lore.
In the presumptive main event, Roman Reigns will put his 1,000-plus-day run as undisputed WWE universal champion on the line, as well as his standing as Tribal Chief, against his cousin, Jey Uso, in Tribal Combat.
Three other top titles will also be on the line, and longstanding grudges will finally be settled in some of the other bouts.
WWE’s stellar string of pay-per-views this year has set the standard for surprising moments. Money in the Bank featured John Cena making a cameo to address the crowd, while WrestleMania saw Pat McAfee and Shane McMahon resurface for impromptu matches with The Miz.
At last year’s installment alone, Bayley returned alongside Dakota Kai and Iyo Sky to form Damage CTRL. Interestingly, Edge’s one-off appearance at the event in 2019 was what led to him coming out of retirement months later.
Multiple neck surgeries have seemingly delayed his return, and beyond him flying into Detroit for the upcoming event, there has been no indication that he’s close to being cleared for competition.
The former NXT champion was sidelined last summer before Triple H took control of creative and thus it’s uncertain how he’ll be utilized when he’s good to go again. He was a top prospect in Triple H’s NXT six years ago, but at the age of 47, Roode will likely remain a midcard player for the rest of his career.
Carlito had one of the best WWE returns in recent years when he helped out Bad Bunny and the rest of the LWO against Damian Priest and The Judgment Day at May’s Backlash pay-per-view in Puerto Rico.
He received a louder reaction from the crowd that night than at any other point in his career, which surely did not go unnoticed by officials. It wasn’t long after that Carlito hinted at a comeback to the company, before PWInsider outrighted confirmed the news in early July.
He didn’t resurfaced on the SmackDown show emanating from Madison Square Garden last month as had been originally speculated, but he should be returning practically any day now. SummerSlam would seem to be as perfect of a place as any for him to reappear and make an immediate impact.
