    WWE SummerSlam is coming on Sunday, August 20, and fans are surely bracing for an epic night. SummerSlam is, of course, one of the company’s biggest events of the year, and everyone knows that WWE always delivers when it matters the most.

    Perhaps “always” is too strong of a term, but the effort will most certainly be there.

    That effort will come from the men and women booked for the summer classic, though only universal champion Brock Lesnar and SmackDown Live women’s champ Naomi have been mentioned for the card thus far. But fans can expect all of WWE’s heavy hitters for the night, as both Monday Night Raw and SmackDown Live will be represented.

    However, their presence on the card will only matter if the storylines that get them there matter first.

    Lesnar’s storyline in particular is still developing, as he will face a Samoan Superstar at SummerSlam. Of course, no one knows which Superstar that will be just yet. Maybe he will face both of them, which means the SummerSlam main event would be massive indeed.

    Naomi will face one of five women from the blue brand, though no one knows who that opponent will be either. WWE could book just one, or perhaps more, to step into the ring against her on August 20.

    The company has options and can go in several different directions with both titleholders. The same is true of every top talent who will compete that night. Though nothing is confirmed for any of those talents just yet, fans are surely beginning to see the groundwork being laid for what’s to come.

    The proof is in the storylines.
