The WWE United States Title match is now official for SummerSlam.
After weeks of feuding between Damian Priest and WWE United States Champion Sheamus, their title match was confirmed for SummerSlam during tonight’s RAW episode from Orlando.
RAW saw Sheamus defeat Ricochet in singles action, right before Priest defeated John Morrison. After that match, Priest cut a promo on Sheamus until The Celtic Warrior interrupted him. They had words on the mic until Priest issued a challenge for the pay-per-view. Sheamus accepted the challenge and the match was confirmed.
WWE SummerSlam takes place on Saturday, August 21 from Allegiant Stadium in Las Vegas, Nevada. Below is the updated confirmed card, along with a few related shots from tonight’s segment on RAW:
