A few minor changes were made to the WWE SummerSlam card during tonight’s go-home RAW episode.
It was announced on tonight’s RAW that Asuka’s first title match of the night will be against WWE Women’s Tag Team Champion Bayley for her SmackDown Women’s Title. Asuka’s title shot against Bayley’s partner, RAW Women’s Champion Sasha Banks, will come later in the night.
Rey Mysterio returned on tonight’s show and announced that he will be in Dominik Mysterio’s corner for the Street Fight against Seth Rollins.
It was also announced that Bobby Lashley and WWE 24/7 Champion Shelton Benjamin will be banned from ringside during MVP’s match with WWE United States Champion Apollo Crews. Crews earned the right to ban the members of The Hurt Business from ringside by defeating Benjamin in a non-title match.
