Backstage News on New Match Being Planned For SummerSlam

SummerSlam
WWE SummerSlam takes place on Sunday, August 20th from Brooklyn, New York

This past Tuesday’s episode of SmackDown Live saw brand commissioner Shane McMahon announce that a Fatal Five-Way match between Charlotte Flair, Lana, Becky Lynch, Tamina Snuka, and Natalya will take place on July 23rd at the WWE’s Battleground pay-per-view (PPV) from Philadelphia, Pennsylvania to determine SmackDown Live Women’s Champion Naomi’s next challenger.

Per Dave Meltzer of the Wrestling Observer Newsletter, WWE is planning a RAW Fatal Four Way match to add to the plethora of multi-man matches they have been putting on as of late. Meltzer explained why WWE has been booking so many multi-person matches as of late, stating that they’re able to protect their talent without writing strong personal storylines:

“Well, you know, that’s what they’re doing a lot of right now,” Meltzer stated. “The thing with multi-person matches is you can always gimmick the finishes so nobody has to lose and it’s easier for the bookers when you do that and plus when you have multiple person matches, inherently you’re not going to do strong personal storylines so you don’t have to worry about writing good stories because you know, you can do a little heat where they’re all mad at each other, but that’s all you can do in a multiple person match.”
