Things will heat up for Summerslam when Smackdown Live comes up with the next episode. We are likely to have confirmations on two championship matches from the blue brand for the biggest event of the summer.

WWE had already made two major announcements regarding this to hype-up the upcoming show.

AJ Styles is the current WWE Champion who is over with his title defence at Extreme Rules against Rusev. We have learned on this week’s episode the former contender might not be challenging the reigning title-holder, anymore.

Rather the Smackdown GM will name a new challenger on next week’s episode.

Here’s the update from WWE.com regarding this,

“SmackDown General Manager Paige has stated that she will name WWE Champion AJ Styles SummerSlam opponent next week on SmackDown LIVE. Who will face The Phenomenal One at The Biggest Event of the Summer? Find out next Tuesday at 8/7 C on USA Network.”

It is almost certain Paige will either name the new contender, or there will be a series of matches to determine the same.

Future ads of Smackdown brand suggests Samoa Joe is going to be the name starting a dream feud for the fans. It would culminate a solid title match at Summerslam.

Apart from the WWE title picture, the contender’s spot for the Smackdown Women’s championship will also be on the line. Carmella is over with her rivalry against Asuka that was ongoing since after Backlash.

She needs a new opponent to defend the title on August 19th. Who better to challenge her on this slot other than Becky Lynch?

However, the title match will only be official if Becky can defeat Carmella in a non-title match. Here are the updates from WWE.com,

“General Manager Paige was definitely listening, as she declared that Lynch will square off against The Princess of Staten Island next week. If Becky losses, Paige will throw the titleholder the Mellabration of all Mellabrations. But if Becky emerges victorious, she will earn a SmackDown Women’s Title opportunity at SummerSlam!”

Becky is waiting for a title opportunity for a long time in her career. It is the best time for her to capitalize now that both Charlotte Flair and Asuka have already received their shots to the title. So, it is certain that the Irish Lass-kicker will move into the title picture from next week onwards.
