Although there were already eight matches scheduled for SummerSlam this coming Sat., Aug. 21, 2021, at Allegiant Stadium in Las Vegas, Nevada, WWE went ahead and added two more during this week’s episode of Monday Night Raw.
The first will feature the reunited RK-Bro, Randy Orton & Riddle, challenging AJ Styles & Omos for the Raw tag team titles. This came about after both had singles matches against the champs and Riddle finally did enough to earn Orton’s respect.
Naturally, a title shot followed.
In addition, Alexa Bliss vs. Eva Marie was added as a straight up singles match. The two have been bickering for a few weeks now, not really over much. The side story, and the real story to look out for here, is Doudrop breaking free of Eva. There’s also a doll looming large. Yeah.
Here’s the updated SummerSlam match card:
- Roman Reigns (c) vs. John Cena (Universal championship)
- Nikki A.S.H. (c) vs. Charlotte Flair vs. Rhea Ripley (Raw women’s championship)
- Bianca Belair (c) vs. Sasha Banks (SmackDown women’s championship)
