So 2018 is the marquee year for WWE as it has given us various Pay-per-view events with a lot of awesome matches which gave us goosebumps (at least to me for sure). First, we saw the WrestleMania, followed by The Greatest Royal Rumble, SummerSlam, and Hella in A Cell. Now WWE is returning to “down under” Dubai for another great event by the name The Super Showdown.
WWE SUPER SHOWDOWN 2018 – ALL MATCHES AND WINNER PREDICTION
So let’s discuss the matches we are going to see in The Super Showdown and I will tell you about the rumored prediction of winners.
Here they are –
1. CEDRIC ALEXANDER (c) vs BUDDY MURPHY (WWE CRUISERWEIGHT CHAMPIONSHIP) –
We are going to kick-off the event with a great match between Cedric and Murphy. Since Murphy was drafted from NXT to 205Live, he has blossomed as one of the top superstars in the roster. And he belongs to Australia as well. So there would be no better place than this to crown Murphy the new champ. I age Cedric has done a great job as the champion, with great title defenses, but Murphy deserves a better one here.
Winner – Buddy Murphy
2. THE NEW DAY (c) vs THE BAR (WWE SMACKDOWN TAG TEAM TITLES) –
So The Bar is back to tag team business, with another opportunity in a major event. They last had their title opportunity at The Greatest Royal Rumble against Bray Wyatt and Matt Hardy when they were in the Raw brand. And we know The New Day is just a master class in tag team wrestling and they can give a nail-biting match anytime, for example, watch their matchup with the Bludgeon Brothers at SummerSlam. You can expect this match to steal the show. But The Bar Hager no chance here, and we can once again see then losing the match after a hot fight.
Winner – The New Day
3. BECKY LYNCH (c) vs CHARLOTTE FLAIR (WWE SMACKDOWN WOMEN’S CHAMPIONSHIP) –
Two former best friends, Becky and Charlotte have now sworn enemies. After a long time, Becky has realized her dream of holding the Women’s Championship in her hands. And she shredded her glee-face and became a stubborn-heel, but with great support. She didn’t leave even a chance to get her hands on Charlotte. And Charlotte is now on the challenger’s side as she managed a rematch fo against her former best friend. Well, Becky won her championship recently and we are probably not gonna see Charlotte winning it back. Do expect it to be a high-voltage match, with Becky retaining her title.
Winner – Becky Lynch
4. JOHN CENA & BOBBY LASHLEY vs KEVIN OWENS & ELIAS –
Finally, John Cena is back to business again. Get ready as we are going to see a “Superstar Face Duo vs Mid-card Heel Team “. Expect it to be an s not-so-action packed match, with Cena and Lashley just thrashing Owens and Elias for an easy win.
Winner – John Cena and Bobby Lashley
5. ASUKA & NAOMI vs THE ICONIC (BILLIE KAY & PEYTON ROYCE) –
Oh man! Asuka has been given the dirt-worst treatment since her drafting to SD Live. Even a lower rated superstar like Carmella handing her loss after the loss was a sheer torture. And her inclusion in this match is confusing. Naomi was having some heated rivalry with The Iiconics, suffer had her random back up in Asuka, and we got a match. Expect the WWE doing a favor on The IIconics by giving then a big win in front of their home crowd.
Winner – The IIconics
6. RONDA ROUSEY & THE BELLA TWINS ( NIKKI AND BRIE BELLA) vs THE RIOTT SQUAD ( RUBY RIOTT, LIV MORGAN, AND SARAH LOGAN) (6 – WOMEN TAG TEAM MATCH) –
Yeah, we are getting a match as stupid as this one. Who would think The Champ Ronda will have to team up with Bella Twins for a tag team match? Becky’s getting a title defense there in SD Love and the Raw Women’s Champion is in a tag team match? Are you serious? Looking at who they are facing, you should expect The Super Baby Face Trio of Rousey and The Bella Twins to get a win, but not an easy one though.
Winner – RONDA ROUSEY & THE BELLA TWINS

7. THE SHIELD ( ROMAN REIGNS, DEAN AMBROSE, SETH ROLLINS) vs BRAUN STROWMAN, DREW McINTYRE AND DOLPH ZIGGLER (6 – MAN TAG TEAM MATCH) –
Were you expecting The Shield vs The Wyatt Family? No no. That’s too far away. But don’t be worried. WWE is going to blow your mind with this match, owing to the storyline that has been put. Seth Rollins’ summer opponents Drew and Dolph chose to aid The Monster Among Men and destroy The Shield, with ask their dreams being shattered. This is the first major event match for The Shield after their reunion last month, so expect them to win. Expect plenty of hot tags, strongman feats by Strowman, slick offense by Ziggler, impactful maneuvers handed out by McIntyre, and efficient teamwork from The Shield. But see the win coming to The Shield.
Winner – The Shield
8. DANIEL BRYAN vs THE MIZ (#1 CONTENDERSHIP MATCH FUR THE WWE CHAMPIONSHIP)
Daniel Bryan and The Miz have developed an intense hatred for each other ever since their NXT Season One paring in 2010. The Miz got his win this year recently and so, we needed a second one. The stakes are higher in this match, as the one who wins is the #1 contender for the WWE title. And I see this honor going to Daniel Bryan. So, Bryan week be offered a championship match, which he will lose due to outside interference by the Muz, taking this feud to The Survivor Series.
Winner – Daniel Bryan
9. THE UNDERTAKER (WITH KANE) vs TRIPLE H (WITH SHAWN MICHAELS) –
The lifelong bout comes to Australia. And hope it ends here. We are going to see a classic, but the exciting match between these two. And don’t be surprised to see Kane and The HBK have some ring-side interference, but all this leading to The Undertaker putting HHH to rest.
Winner – The Undertaker.
10. AJ Styles (c) vs Samoa Joe (WWE CHAMPIONSHIP) –
I am going to kill the man who says this is useless. Just look at the competitors. The bout beat these two has reached limits. With Samoa Joe constantly targeting AJ’s family, and AJ losing his temper, we are going to see an intense physical battle here, with AJ retaining his title again somehow.
Winner – AJ Styles
