Bianca Belair was forced to deal with Sasha Banks and Zelina Vega
In the wake of Sasha Banks’ return and attack on SmackDown Women’s Champion Bianca Belair, The EST of WWE interrupted The Boss in the ring to ignite a war of words.

Jey Uso def. Dominik Mysterio

King Nakamura def. Apollo Crews via disqualification
Just when it looked as if King Nakamura might emerge victorious over Apollo Crews in an intriguing Championship Contender Match, Commander Azeeez suddenly pulled The Artist out of the ring and brought an end to the action by disqualification.

In the wake of two straight Championship Contender victories by new SmackDown tandem Shotzi & Nox against the WWE Women’s Tag Team Champions, Tegan Nox overcame Tamina one-on-one when a shot fired from Shotzi's tank distracted the titleholder long enough for Nox to roll her up for the quick pin.
Edge challenged Seth Rollins to a SummerSlam showdown
Although Seth Rollins didn't show up to to face Edge in person, he emerged via satellite to engage in a war of words.

Roman Reigns and The Usos executed a 3-on-1 beatdown on Finn Bálor
When Universal Champion Roman Reigns warned Finn Bálor to stop using his name in the closing moments of SmackDown, The Prince responded by shoving the The Head of the Table out of the ring while Reigns was making his exit. Moments later, The Usos attacked from behind, and Reigns decided to take his leave. When Bálor started to get the best of Jimmy & Jey, however, The Head of the Table returned, and the 3-on-1 onslaught of The Bloodline was too much, as Reigns put Finn out with the Guillotine.
