Nikki A.S.H kicked off the show to celebrate last week’s Money in the Bank cash-in and championship victory. Charlotte interrupted and claimed Nikki’s victory wasn’t credible due to Rhea Ripley’s involvement. Charlotte then laid claim to a rematch. That statement brought out Ripley and she claimed the same. With both women vying for a title shot, the Raw authority figures settled the issue and booked the triple threat. Later in the show, Nikki lost a singles match to Flair in the main event.
Summerslam airs live on Peacock on Saturday August 21 from Allegiant Stadium in Las Vegas.
