There were a couple of developments in regards to WWE SummerSlam at this week’s Smackdown taping.
First, Chris Jericho faced Erick Rowan in a singles match with the stipulation being that if Jericho went over, Rowan would be “banned from ringside” for Jericho vs. Bray Wyatt at SummerSlam. Jericho went over so Rowan is banned from ringside.
Rusev vs. Jack Swagger in a Flag Match was officially announced for SummerSlam. We noted plans for a gimmick match between the two in our Backstage Raw News on Tuesday.
