That SummerSlam card keeps filling up.
Cathy Kelley announced another match this morning (Aug. 5) in the above video, the eighth for the rumored five-and-half to six hour show. You’ll hear no complaints from me about this one, though, as the feud which has developed between Jimmy and Jey Uso and The New Day since Big E, Kofi Kingston and Xavier Woods debuted on SmackDown has been one of my favorite things on WWE television of late.
Recent developments are recapped by Kelley in the announcement, and I strongly encourage you to watch their Money in the Bank and Battleground matches - again or for the first time - to get ready for the next chapter, where The Usos will try to reclaim the belts from The New Day, Aug. 20 in Brooklyn.
Here’s the line up this match joins for Barclays Center:
- Roman Reigns vs. Samoa Joe vs. Braun Strowman vs. Brock Lesnar (c) in a Fatal 4Way for the WWE Universal championship; if Lesnar loses, he and Paul Heyman leave WWE)
- Shinsuka Nakamura vs. Jinder Mahal (c) for the WWE title
- Naomi (c) vs. Natalya for the SmackDown Women’s championship
- Bayley vs. Alexa Bliss (c) for the Raw Women’s title
- AJ Styles (c) vs. Kevin Owens for the United States championship (Shane McMahon is the special guest referee)
- Akira Tozawa vs. Neville (c) for the Cruiserweight title
- The New Day (c) vs. The Usos for the SmackDown tag team championship
- Randy Orton vs. Rusev
