10 Last-Minute WWE SummerSlam 2018 Rumours You Need To Know

10. A Fourteenth Match


Adding further substance to the suggestion that WWE Evolution was hastily scheduled to deflect justifiable criticism of the company potentially running a second female-free show in Saudi Arabia this autumn, is the fact that Sasha Banks and Bayley are nowhere near the Barclays Center this Sunday.

After months of build - admittedly, the sort which would wind up on Rogue Traders - it seemed entirely logical that the pair would finally clash in the very building they took one giant leap for women's wrestling what feels like decades ago. Instead, it looks as though that redemptive match is being withheld for Uniondale.

Sasha and Bayley's exclusion is mystifying, not to mention infuriating, so there's every chance WWE will sneak a thrown-together tag bout onto the card at the last minute. After all, it doesn't matter how long the show runs; they don't care about our sanity.
