13 Match Quality Predictions For WWE SummerSlam 2018

13. The B Team Vs. The Revival - RAW Tag Team Title Match


Why is this match even happening?

The last thing SummerSlam 2018 needs is more filler, and this is precisely that. It makes even less sense as a fictional proposition than a practical one; on this week's RAW, Curtis Axel outwitted the Revival (read those words again), winning the Triple Threat Tag Team Title match for his jobber tandem (!) by using their own blind-tagging tricks. The Revival cleanly lost a title match, and have been rewarded with another. This is nonsensical even by WWE's nothing-means-anything standards.

Will the match be any good?

It's on the Kickoff, so nobody's going to care about it. It requires the team formerly known for being godd*mn masterminds as hapless geeks outmatched by an increasingly unfunny comedy act. It's also meaningless. Even if The Revival win, what have they won? A title that means less than the Divas title did back when John Laurinaitis used masturbation as a recruitment tool?

Why is this match even happening?

So WWE execs can cite minutes viewed as a metric of the Network's success. That's it.

Predicted Star Rating: *1/2
