Kickoff Show has shifted a championship match to the Kickoff Show before SummerSlam this Sunday night in Brooklyn, New York on the WWE Network.

The New Day defending the Smackdown Tag Team Championships against The Usos is now set for the kickoff that begins at a special start time of 5:00 p.m. Eastern (4:00 CT).

It had been reported among the wrestling media that Akira Tozawa vs. Neville for the Cruiserweight Championship was expected to be part of the kickoff on Sunday. However, as of Wednesday afternoon, the match remains listed for the main SummerSlam card.


  1. This confirms that the tag-team titles mean shit! Imagine back in the 80’s if Demolition defended the tag belts in some pre-show at SummerSlam. There’s a reason why every single tag team from the 80’s were OVER with the crowd, its cause the whole tag team division (especially the tag champs) were a big deal. Today’s tag champs (New Day) aren’t even on par with what the Rougeau Brothers or Killer Bees were.
