WWE SummerSlam 2019 Results: Will There Be Any Title Changes on Sunday?

It's Sunday and the second biggest show on the WWE's calendar, SummerSlam is underway.

There are six title matches on the 10-card pay-per-view, each that has relatively new challengers but could change the landscape of their respective divisions. Natalya would shock the RAW Women's division and dethrone "The Man" Becky Lynch in her home country. Ember Moon could capture her first main roster title by defeating Bayley for the SmackDown Women's Championship.

Brock Lesnar is Universal Champion once again, and Seth Rollins looks to take back the top title in the WWE, while Randy Orton looks to disprove Kofi Kingston's credibility by winning the WWE Championship from him.

"The Fiend" make his in-ring debut on Sunday as Bray Wyatt's alter ego takes on Finn Balor in a grudge match years in the making. Goldberg and Trish Stratus return for one more match against Dolph Ziggler and Charlotte Flair, respectively.

There's also the angle revolving Roman Reigns and his attacker. For two weeks, Roman has was attacked by a mystery assailant and after taking his frustrations out on Buddy Murphy, the former Cruiserweight Champion revealed that it was Rowan who has been after Roman.

Rowan and Daniel Bryan have denied the allegations, but WWE fans could see this angle play out on Sunday.

AJ Styles and The OC look to continue their rise to dominance as "The Phenomenal One" defends the US Championship against Ricochet. And finally we have the fight for the soul of SmackDown Live as Kevin Owens looks to take out Shane McMahon. However, if KO loses he will have to quit the promotion.

A lot can happen on Sunday's show, so here's all the results and possible angles from SummerSlam 2019.
