WWE Network Announces Details on SummerSlam Week Programming

WWE SmackDown Live Preview (8/15/17): The Down & Dirty On Tonight's Show

Rollins would win (with some help from Ric Flair fan and SummerSlam host, Jon Stewart), and while he'd eventually lose the United States Championship back to Cena, it was still a significant moment with Cena putting over an up-and-coming star at a major event.

As SmackDown Live came to a close Tuesday night, Corbin was heaving TV monitors, slapping the ring in frustration and wondering how in the world he had just lost the best opportunity of his professional career. The challenger is a 4/11 favorite just five days before the match, via Paddy Power, and Jinder is a 15/8 underdog. Owens says AJ hit Shane on goal last week, and thinks AJ has something planned for SummerSlam.

Apparently, the powers that be weren't pleased about him underperforming during his promos with John Cena.

The wrestler then cashed in his briefcase and the ref made the match official.

The Singh brothers are back as they introduce the WWE champion. He defeated Randy Orton for the title and has since successfully defended the belt twice against The Viper.

Non-title and Jinder's entrance is joined in progress. Rusev pounds Gable into the corner and then whips him across the ring. Jey tags in and The Usos hit a double superkick on Kofi for the win. Carmella and Ellsworth says it doesn't matter who wins the Women's title at SummerSlam, because with her Money In the Bank briefcase Carmella will be the ultimate victor. It's not that I mind Corbin failing to cash in successfully.

Baron Corbin, who Cena will be facing at SummerSlam, could also get involved in hat match tonight. This week features Jinder Mahal vs. John Cena in a non-title match, which likely means that Baron Corbin and Shinsuke Nakamura will be lurking around.

It was interesting to see WWE give away this match, which certainly could have been a pay-per-view match, on free TV.

The advertised main event of the evening? Roman Reigns isn't expected to get the pinfall, nor is Braun Strowman. If Lesnar doesn't end up winning the match, don't expect him to be the one that gets pinned or submitted.

SummerSlam KickoffSunday, August 20 LIVE at 5pm ET Renee Young, David Otunga, WWE Hall of Famers Jerry Lawler and Lita, and Peter Rosenberg, share their thoughts on all of the evening's matches at SummerSlam.
