– Tonight is WWE SmackDown, the blue show started with the commentators welcoming us and showing us the scenes for the first match of the night, then Drew McIntye came to the ring… but he was attacked by Sheamus and the match begins once both wrestlers are in the ring!
Old Fashioned Donnybrook Match

Drew McIntyre vs. Sheamus
At the end of the match, Sheamus wanted to do his Brogue Kick on Drew McIntyre but the latter picked him up and knocked him on the table placed in the ring. Sheamus crawls out… but Drew McIntyre lands the final Claymore Kick for the pinfall win!
Winner: Drew McIntyre
– After his victory, Drew McIntyre was interviewed by Kayla Braxton. He tells us that someone is going to take the title away from the part-time champions … Theory attacks him from behind with his Money in the Bank briefcase!
– We saw Happy Corbin attack Pat McAfee last week. After that, we see Corbin heading to ringside with a ticket in hand. The commentators presented us with a map, but Corbin ended up going over the barricade to attack McAfee. Security comes to separate them…before Happy Corbin kicks him in the privates…ouch!
– Backstage Kayla Braxton is with Theory claiming that she will become the United States Champion for the second time at SummerSlam. Everyone is jealous of him, but that won’t stop him from cashing in tomorrow night. Brock Lesnar put an F5 on him last week, but that wasn’t going to stop him. Bloodline attacks him, but that doesn’t stop him. There’s nothing stopping him from cashing in and heading to Cardiff to turn Drew McIntyre into a punching bag.
On his way, Theory met Paul Heyman who would talk to him on camera.
Shotzi against Aliyah
At the end of the match, Shotzi did a DDT on Aliyah then proceeded to fall for the win.
– Backstage, Ronda Rousey and Liv Morgan face each other. Natalya joins them and tells Liv Morgan to enjoy her days as champion because Ronda Rousey will beat her in record time. Sonya Deville arrived and recalled that Ronda Rousey attacked her after being beaten by Raquel Rodriguez last week.
– Back in the ring, Shotzi laughed and even before finishing his first sentence, he was cut off by Ronda Rousey’s music and then the former champion went to the ring to attack Shotzi. Rousey takes the mic and says people are complaining about not being in the title match. He asked Liv Morgan to come to show why they should fight for the title at SummerSlam.

Winners: Ronda Rousey and Liv Morgan
– After their victory, Ronda Rousey and Liv Morgan faced off and the champion raised his belt.
– Street Revenue then The Usos make their entrance. Jeff Jarrett (special referee for their match at SummerSlam) also got in the ring and said he had a few words to say to both teams. He thought it would be a good idea for them to get together tonight to clear things up. He takes his job as a referee very seriously. Both teams asked what would count as a disqualification. Jeff Jarrett replied that he wasn’t there to limit them, he was there to let them run wild. He has a mission: to do the pinfall when there are two shoulders on the ground.
A brawl breaks out between the two teams, but Jeff Jarrett ends up taking a Superkick from Jey Uso the wrong way! The Usos feel bad and Jarrett shoves them when he gets up. Angelo Dawkins throws the Usos out of the ring and then Montez Ford jumps off the top rope to get to the champions.
– A video of Maximum Male Models has been broadcast, they present us the Beachwear collection of the return of Max Dupri.

– Paul Heyman is in the ring and he introduces himself. He tells us that Roman Reigns will be the “last man standing” at SummerSlam. Tomorrow, Roman Reigns won’t pin Brock Lesnar, he’ll crush him! Reigns will put Lesnar on the ground for ten seconds and he will stand over the victim Brock Lesnar with two belts. We’re done with Brock Lesnar, once and for all…. Brock Lesnar’s music hits and he enters!
Paul Heyman hands him his microphone, Brock Lesnar approaches him… but Theory attacks him from behind with his briefcase! Except Brock Lesnar defends himself and throws him out of the ring after some German Suplexes. Theory walks off the stage and a fired up Drew McIntyre comes out of nowhere to give him his Claymore Kick!
The show ended with a face to face between Brock Lesnar and Drew McIntyre.
