The match was officially announced during tonight’s SummerSlam go-home edition of RAW. AJ defeated Riddle earlier in the night, but Orton later defeated Omos by DQ due to an attack by AJ. Orton was then double teamed until Riddle made the save. Orton then declared that Riddle has earned his respect, and that R-K-Bro is back. They shook hands and hugged as fans cheered them on. Riddle then announced that they would be challenging AJ and Omos at SummerSlam, and the match was later confirmed by the RAW announcers.
In more news for WWE SummerSlam, Veer and Shanky are now banned from ringside during the singles match between Jinder Mahal and Drew McIntyre.
Tonight’s RAW featured a 2-on-1 Handicap Match with McIntyre going against Veer and Shanky. Per the stipulations, Drew would’ve been banned from bringing his sword, Angela, to the ring at SummerSlam if he lost the Handicap Match. Since he won, Veer and Shanky are now banned from being at ringside for Mahal.
Eva Marie vs. Alexa Bliss was also added to SummerSlam during tonight’s RAW.
Marie and Doudrop have feuded with Bliss, and Lilly, for a few weeks now. After Bliss defeated Doudrop last week, tonight’s show featured a segment where Doudrop apologized to Eva and blamed the loss on Lilly. Eva sent Doudrop to snatch Lilly from Bliss in another backstage segment. Doudrop went to Alexa’s Playground and snatched Lilly from Bliss’ hands, but Bliss said she shouldn’t do that. Doudrop then looked down at Lilly and handed her right back to Bliss. Bliss laughed as Doudrop walked off to end the segment. Eva said she’s going to take care of the Bliss problem at SummerSlam, while Bliss has promised to put an end to the Eva-Lution at the pay-per-view.
