We're two months away from WWE SummerSlam at Browns Stadium on Aug. 3.

The intrigue: So far, we know King of the Ring winner Gunther will challenge for the World Heavyweight Championship, currently held by Damien Priest.

  • Queen of the Ring winner Nia Jax will contend for the WWE Women's Champion, currently held by Bayley.

Yes, but: WWE has two pay-per-views — Clash at the Castle on June 15 and Money in the Bank on July 6 — before SummerSlam that could determine more matches.

Zoom in: Cleveland native Logan Paul will probably defend his United States Championship against fan-favorite L.A. Knight at SummerSlam.

Between the lines: Two of WWE's biggest stars — CM Punk and Rhea Ripley — are rehabbing injuries and could return before the Cleveland show.

  • Roman Reigns has been off TV since losing at WrestleMania in April but may also be back this summer.

The bottom line: SummerSlam is one of WWE's biggest annual events, so expect a star-studded show.

If you go: Tickets start at $70.

  • The event will stream live on Peacock.
