The match card includes 5 fights with 17 pro wrestlers set to take part. The matches are as follows:
This single match will see ‘The Tribal Chief’ Roman Reigns defend his title against YouTube star and WWE new boy Logan Paul. Paul has impressed so far in his first 2 match, and this will definitely be one to watch. Reigns is heavy favourite to come out on top.
The next match is between The O.C. (which have just reformed for the first time since April 2020) and The Judgement Day. The O.C consists of AJ Styles, Luke Gallows, and Karl Anderson while The Judgment Day is made up by Finn Bálor, Damian Priest, and Dominik Mysterio (with Rhea Ripley). This 6-man tag team match will surely throw up some surprises!
During SummerSlam Brock Lesnar attacked Bobby Lashley ultimately causing Lashley to lose his United States Championship title. They later fought with Lashley coming out on top. This will be their third official confrontation in WWE
Everyone loves a cage fight. One of the most iconic concept matches in WWE, we’ll see Drew McIntyre vs. Karrion Kross (with Scarlett). We’ve seen these 2 fight once before at the 2022 Extreme Rules, when Kross beat McIntyre with some dodge tactics from Scarlett. McIntyre is favourite to beat his foe.
The final match is a classic SmackDown vs RAW match, SmackDown’s ‘The Monster of all Monster’ Braun Strowman faces ‘The Giant’ Omos (with MVP) from RAW. This will be the first time the 2 fighters will officially step in ring together. Strowman is set as favourite to win the tie.
