An early SummerSlam screening

The Big Guy’s gigantic SummerSlam obstacle
Monday night on Raw, Ryback made quick work of his SummerSlam opponent, The Miz, before daring his other SummerSlam challenger, Big Show, to step in the ring with him. The World’s Largest Athlete declined, but luckily for the WWE Universe, we will be able to watch these two heavyweights go head-to-head tonight on SmackDown!
With this Sunday’s Intercontinental Championship Triple Threat Match just three days away, will there be anything left of these two behemoths after they square off on Thursday’s hottest show? And will The Awesome One look to get the last laugh before The Biggest Party of the Summer?
The Showoff returns to SmackDown
We should have known Dolph Ziggler would make sure he returned from his injury at the hands of Rusev in time for The Biggest Party of the Summer. On Raw, The Showoff stormed the ring to save his girlfriend Lana from a menacing Rusev, super kicking The Super Athlete out of the ring. As a result, Ziggler will get a chance to steal the show at Summerslam when he battles The Bulgarian Brute, live this Sunday on the award-winning WWE Network.
Before this very personal rivalry boils over at SummerSlam, WWE’s show-stealing Superstar will make his return to Thursday’s hottest show to address the WWE Universe. What will Ziggler have to say about his match this Sunday with his girlfriend’s former flame? Plus, will Rusev and his new companion Summer Rae try to inflict revenge tonight on SmackDown?
The Divas Revolution rolls into SmackDown
The Divas Revolution will take center stage this Sunday at The Biggest Party of the Summer, live on the award-winning WWE Network. But before SummerSlam’s Three-Team Elimination Match, Becky Lynch, Sasha Banks and Brie Bella will compete in a Triple Threat Match on SmackDown!
Which Diva will give her team a step up three days before their revolutionary run in at SummerSlam? Don’t miss Thursday’s hottest show to watch a red-hot Divas Triple Threat Match.
What mayhem will transpire prior to SummerSlam?
The biggest SummerSlam in WWE history is just three days away and that means Superstars and Divas will have one more chance to make a statement before their matches at The Biggest Party of the Summer. With several contests set for Thursday’s hottest show and a number of SummerSlam competitors in action, it’s anybody’s guess what chaos will go down.
