How did WWE ever announce matches before Twitter?

Six days before Sunday's (August 19) big SummerSlam pay-per-view (PPV), Raw General Manager AJ Lee has announced another match to join the likes of Brock Lesnar vs. Triple H, CM Punk vs. John Cena vs. The Big Show, Sheamus vs. Alberto Del Rio -- maybe -- and Daniel Bryan vs. Kane.

The Miz will take on Rey Mysterio.

From her Twitter:

As Raw GM, I've declared at #SummerSlam this Sunday, @MiketheMiz will defend his Intercontinental title vs @ReyMysterio. How awesome is that?"

The Miz won the strap from Christian at Raw 1000 and hasn't looked back since. For his part, Mysterio returned the week prior and also has been on a hot streak. The two collided this past Monday in a pretty good match and it looks as if their feud will continue.

The two will meet in Los Angeles with the Intercontinental strap on the line.

Who comes away as the champion, Cagesiders?
