Update: Neville defending the WWE Cruiserweight Championship against Akira Tozawa has now been officially added to the card after Tozawa became No. 1 Contender on 205 Live.

Three new matches were officially announced for the upcoming SummerSlam PPV in three weeks in Brooklyn during tonight’s Smackdown Live episode from Cleveland.

This includes Shinsuke Nakamura challenging Jinder Mahal for the WWE Championship after Nakamura defeated John Cena on Smackdown to become the No. 1 Contender.

Also officially announced for the show is AJ Styles defending the WWE United States Championship against Kevin Owens with Shane McMahon acting as the special guest referee and Rusev vs. Randy Orton after Orton offered himself up as an opponent after Rusev complained about not having a match in three weeks.

  1. With how RAW’s PPVs are nowadays I wouldn’t put it pass myself to think that Smackdown will carry them in this joint PPV. The only match I really care for on RAW is the WWE Universal Championship Match.

  2. I think some matches will also featured as Randy Orton Vs Rusev, Dean Ambrose & Seth Vs Sheamus & Cesaro ( Tag team titles), Jason Jordan Vs The Miz (Intercontinental Championship)…. Apart from that i think Corbin will cash in Summer Slam sure.
