SUMMERSLAM Update – Pre-show tag match announced, main PPV match bumped to pre-show

By James Caldwell, PWTorch assistant editor


WWE has added one match to the Summerslam pre-show Sunday night in Brooklyn, New York.

The Dudleys will return to their home market against Neville & Sami Zayn in a tag match, which should make for an interesting crowd response.

Also on Friday, WWE officially bumped Cesaro vs. Sheamus to the pre-show to kick off their Best-of-Seven series.

There are now ten matches on the main PPV and two matches on the pre-show.

Another matter to be resolved is a replacement for Eva Marie in Smackdown’s six-woman tag match, which is listed for the main PPV.
