"Like I said before, it doesn't matter if it was Cena or Shinsuke Nakamura, you put them up in front of me, and I destroy them!"
In what originally was supposed to be a match pitting Sting against WCW World Heavyweight Champion Big Van Vader, Sting suffered an injury, which left the No. 1 contender spot vacant. Also, keep an eye on the growing friction between Owens and SmackDown Live commissioner Shane McMahon.
The Smackdown management team agreed and granted Owens a rematch against Styles for the United States Championship at SummerSlam with McMahon as the special guest referee to ensure that the same mistake won't happen twice.
The match ended in controversy after Owens inadvertently struck the referee in the face before Styles quickly rolled up the self-proclaimed New Face of America for the victory.

Rift Valley regional coordinator Wanyama Musiambo who is at the home declined to comment on the operation. The DP's home has since been cordoned off and Recce Squad officers have been deployed.
Nakamura needs to win either on Smackdown Live tonight, or at Summerslam, because a King always needs his crown.
At the end of the match, the referee was knocked out.
This segment with Corbin could have been the start of a feud, and if a feud is beginning on WWE programming in early August, it's clearly leading to a match at SummerSlam.

Chad Gable has been proving his worth as a singles Superstar over the past month, with great showings against AJ Styles and Kevin Owens. So the Sumemrslam for Rusev seems set and Orton made it clear with an RKO out of nowhere.
Naomi and Becky Lynch vs. Natalya and Carmella: A minor Hit for simple tag match that gave the babyface champion a clean win. While it would have been Cena's opportunity to get his record seventeenth title and turn into the best ever champion by obscuring Ric Flair, who additionally has 16 to his name, for Nakamura it would have been his first-since forever title shot.
