– Tonight’s WWE Main Event and SmackDown tapings will take place from the Huntington Center in Toledo, Ohio with the big announcement on Brock Lesnar’s SummerSlam opponent. Superstars advertised for tonight include WWE Champion Dean Ambrose, WWE Intercontinental Champion The Miz, AJ Styles, Chris Jericho, Sheamus, Sami Zayn, Alberto Del Rio, Cesaro and Kevin Owens. Tonight’s tapings should see the return of Jerry Lawler, who was suspended until his domestic charges from the incident with fiancee Lauryn McBride were dropped.
– As noted, tonight’s TNA Impact Wrestling episode will feature Matt Hardy vs. Jeff Hardy in their “Final Deletion” match, taped from Matt’s “compound” in North Carolina. It was noted on Wrestling Observer Radio that most of the WWE talents on the recent tour of Japan saw a tape of the Hardy vs. Hardy match, causing speculation that someone in WWE may have used the TNA match for inspiration when booking the angle on RAW where The Wyatt Family invited WWE Tag Team Champions The New Day to their compound in the swamp.
