The event, which takes place on July 14 at the Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia, PA, is currently advertised to feature the following:
- Seth Rollins vs. Baron Corbin in a Tables Match
- Kofi Kingston vs. Dolph Ziggler vs. Kevin Owens
- Roman Reigns vs. Drew McIntyre & Shane McMahon in a Handicap Match
Now, while it should be stressed that often local advertising does not reflect what WWE ends up doing, it does give a good indication of which direction the company intends to go.
The prospect of a third consecutive pay-per-view meeting between Rollins and Corbin will likely fill many fans with dread, especially after their underwhelming outing at Stomping Grounds last night.
Similarly, a third meeting between Kingston and Ziggler does not sound all that appealing, even with the addition of Owens, especially as Ziggler has lost to Kingston twice. Cleanly.
Finally, Reigns against Drew and Shane would perhaps have made sense if not for the fact that Roman overcame the odds against McIntyre at Stomping Grounds, shaking off attempted McMahon interference to win the match.
It is re-run cards like this that are causing fans so much frustration towards WWE and the way the promotion books at the moment.
If WWE is not careful it will have another embarrassing live PPV crowd number to explain to investors when the next set of financial reports come around.
