Backstage news on nixed SummerSlam match involving the Hardys, what Officials are planning now

SummerSlam logo

We noted before how Scott Dawson of the Revival suffered a shoulder injury during a recent Live Event. Prior to his injury, it appeared that the duo was heading towards a match with the Hardy Boys at SummerSlam.

Now Pwinsider has confirmed that WWE had planned this match for the Pre Show of the upcoming PPV, but those plans are apparently nixed now due to Dawson’s injury.

The site further reports that the company is now planning for the Hardys to face Luke Gallows and Karl Anderson on the kickoff show of the Biggest Event Of The Summer.

It’s also being said that the announced match between The Usos and New Day is also planned to take place at the 2 hours long Pre Show of the upcoming PPV instead of the Main Card.

Other announced matches for the show include a Fatal Four Way match for the WWE Universal Championship and a surprising match for John Cena as well. You can check out the updated SummerSlam match card here.

    2 months ago everybody was saying that he will face aj styles or jinder mahal, now he is facing baron corbin so i am pretty surprised with it

  • jedi

    That’s what I’m hoping for also!

    If the pre show is 2 hours, still a chance of more matches I guess. The IC title will more than likely be Jason Jordan with the recent Miz TV segment.

    I think he’s implying that he’s personally surprised that Cena is competing in a midcard match with nothing on the line at SummerSlam.

  • Keith Learmonth

    What’s surprising about Cena vs Corbin? It was pretty much confirmed by the post-Smackdown stuff on the network last week.

  • jedi

    Sooooo now raw tag titles or ic title being defended at summerslam?

  • Sparti Love

    How is 2 hours considered a preshow when it’s the same length as Smackdown?
