The two iconic heavyweights have had seven matches against each other, in total, including four singles matches, two triple threat matches and one fatal four-way match. At SummerSlam, the deadlock in individual matches will be broken, via a last man standing match for the Raw and SmackDown championships. What does "last man standing" mean? It means each wrestler will attempt to incapacitate the other long enough for the referee to count the opponent out at 10.
And that's just the main event.
Saturday night's festivities will feature three other matches with championships on the line. Bobby Lashley will defend his United States title in a rematch against Theory. The Usos will put their Raw and SmackDown titles on the line against The Street Profits. Finally, Ronda Rousey will try to reclaim her SmackDown Women's Championship after losing it when Liv Morgan cashed in her Money In The Bank briefcase earlier in the month.
The 2022 edition of WWE SummerSlam is set to take place July 30 at Nashville's Nissan Stadium, the home of the Tennessee Titans. It is the 35th edition of one of the WWE's signature events, and the card will showcase four title fights. Below you'll find the matches to watch and more.
