Roman Reigns vs (champion) Kevin Owens (WWE Universal Championship)
The feud between Reigns and Owens has been going on over the past few months and the former came close to dethroning the champ in their previous fights. However, Chris Jericho interfered and once again helped Owens retain the title. To stop him from interfering in the match this time around, Y2J will be suspended over the ring in a shark cage.
John Cena vs (champion) AJ Styles (WWE World Championship)
Cena took a break from wrestling to pursue his acting career right after he lost the title fight against Styles at No Mercy 2016. Now, the 15-time world champion has returned and will be looking to end The Phenomenal One's reign before he takes another hiatus from the ring.
Bayley vs (champion) Charlotte Flair (WWE Raw Women's Championship)
The title has exchanged hands between Charlotte Flair and Sasha Banks for some months now. Finally, Bayley has got a shot at the title following her win over Nia Jax.
Shinsuke Nakamura (champion) vs Bobby Roode (NXT Championship)
Roode will face the King of Strong Style as the former has earned the shot at the title with his impressive win over other wrestlers in a mini-tournament and elimination match final.
The Club vs (champion) Sheamus and Cesaro (WWE Raw tag team championship)
Sasha Banks vs Nia Jax
