Banks opened the show explaining her beatdown of Belair from the week before. As tensions rose, the huge rematch was made official for August 21st.
It was also announced that Edge will face Seth Rollins for the first time ever at the summer spectacular. The two men have been on a collision course since Rollins cost Edge the Universal Championship at Money In The Bank.
The pair came to blows in the weeks after the show, with Edge finally running out of patience on SmackDown.
The Hall of Famer verbally blasted Rollins before he appeared via satellite. Edge challenged Rollins to a match at SummerSlam, but the former Shield member said he would have to think about it. Rollins discussed the WWE legend’s history of neck injuries warning him about what would happen if he curb stomped his head into the mat.
Edge responded by saying that Rollins wanted to walk in his shoes, but couldn’t fill them, before calling him ‘Edge-lite.’ At this Rollins snapped and accepted the challenge.
