John Cena offered Baron Corbin an Attitude Adjustment

When Cena refused and pointed out that Corbin deserved what he was experiencing, the former monarch chose to insult The Leader of the Cenation and received an Attitude Adjustment for his trouble.

Rey Mysterio def. Jimmy Uso
After losing the SmackDown Tag Team Titles at WWE Money in The Bank, Rey Mysterio gained valuable momentum for his son and himself, tearing a page out of The Usos’ recent playbook when Dominik added his feet to Rey’s quick pin attempt to steal the win over Jimmy Uso!

Sasha Banks returned to help Bianca Belair neutralize Zelina Vega and Carmella
Celebrating surpassing 100 days as SmackDown Women’s Champion, Bianca Belair soon found herself on the wrong end of a 2-on-1 assault by Zelina Vega and Carmella.

An even more shocking moment occurred seconds later, though, when The Boss lifted Belair and gave her a huge hug!

Reggie def. Chad Gable by Disqualification in a 24/7 Championship Match
After Reggie’s momentous victory over Akira Tozawa on Raw, the new 24/7 Champion journeyed to SmackDown where he used his tremendous athleticism to nearly pin Alpha Academy teacher Chad Gable before Otis charged in and brought an end to the action by disqualification. Nevertheless, when Otis hurled Reggie over the top rope, the incredible 24/7 Champion rolled his way through and flipped away unscathed and smiling ear to ear.

John Cena signed the contract to challenge Roman Reigns at SummerSlam
As Finn Bálor was about to sign the contract for his SummerSlam Universal Championship Match against Roman Reigns, a completely desperate Baron Corbin suddenly emerged and took out The Prince from behind before attempting to sign the title contract himself. He came up short, though, when John Cena took out Corbin before seizing the Universal Title contract for himself! With his signature affixed to the document, the 16-time World Champion became The Head of the Table’s challenger at SummerSlam! The Summer of Cena is heating up!

After a scuffle last week over who will be Apollo Crews’ next Intercontinental Championship challenger, Big E, Cesaro, & King Nakamura battled Crews, Dolph Ziggler & Robert Roode. 

Rick Boogs suddenly distracted Crews with his guitar riff and paved the way for a bunch of mayhem outside the ring. Eventually King Nakamura picked up the pinfall on the Intercontinental Champion with the Kinshasa.

Bianca Belair & Sasha Banks def. Carmella & Zelina Vega
After returning to help Bianca Belair fend off Zelina Vega and Carmella, The Boss joined forces with the Superstar that took her SmackDown Women’s Championship at WrestleMania.
