“Then. Now. Forever.” The WWE video leads us into the show.

A video is shown from last Friday on SmackDown of Undisputed WWE Universal Champion Roman Reigns saying business picks up when he shows up.

Brock Lesnar’s music hits, and he makes his way to the ring. Lesnar’s pyro is a bit delayed, and he gets a kick out of that. Lesnar tips his cowboy hat to the crowd and says, “Well, God bless Texas!” As we’ve seen, life is good for Roman Reigns. Since WrestleMania, Reigns has been living high on the hog, flying on private jets, and eating like a king. There’s an old saying that came from Texas: pigs get fat and hogs get slaughtered. Reigns is a hog, and he slaughters hogs on his farm every single day. At SummerSlam, the Tribal Hog is going to get a country ass-kicking to the likes he’s never seen.

“Ladies and gentlemen…”

Paul Heyman, the Special Counsel to the Tribal Chief, walks out to the stage to loud boos. Heyman says they are booing from the Island of Relevancy are booing as well. Lesnar says, “Speaking of hogs…” Heyman says that isn’t “Texas neighborly” of Lesnar. A loud “You suck” chant picks up. Heyman says despite their differences, Brock Lesnar does not suck. Heyman starts to talk, but Lesnar says, “Three little piggies went to town. Oink, oink, oink…” Is Heyman going to say something?

Heyman says we went from the greatest WrestleMania of all time to the most barbaric SummerSlam of all time. Who would you bet on for the Last Man Standing Match at SummerSlam? Heyman says he’d put his money on Brock Lesnar. Reigns’ legacy has been defined by taking people out and either pinning or submitting them. Lesnar’s career has been defined by destruction. This match is designed for Lesnar. Lesnar doesn’t care if he sends Roman Reigns to the hospital or the morgue. That’s not a man. That’s a Beast. That’s a hog slaughterer, an annihilator, and a destroyer that wants revenge on his Tribal Chief. We are approaching 700-days of Roman Reigns as champion. This is one streak Lesnar will not conquer. Heyman will have Reigns ready for Lesnar at SummerSlam to put him down, even if he has to train Reigns to stick his hand up Lesnar’s ass and pull his heart out of that hole. That is what his Tribal Chief is going to do to something like Lesnar.

Mr. Money in the Bank, Theory, walks out to the stage. Theory says SummerSlam is going to be one of the greatest nights in history. He’ll take back his United States Championship from Bobby Lashley and then watch this match of mass destruction. After the match, he won’t run down to the ring. He’ll walk down with his contract, hand it to the referee, and either put his foot on Brock Lesnar’s chest or Roman Reigns’ chest. Then the announcer will proclaim him the new Undisputed WWE Champion of the World. Lesnar invites Theory to come down and try him out now. Theory says it doesn’t matter if Lesnar or Reigns wins. The way they’re talking about the outcome is life-altering. Maybe Heyman should listen to Lesnar because Theory has footage from Elimination Chamber that proves Lesnar doesn’t care about anyone’s life. Footage is shown of Lesnar giving Theory an F5 off the top of a pod to the floor of the Elimination Chamber. Theory says that footage could be Roman Reigns. Reigns could be just a heap of human flesh sitting there motionless. That footage wasn’t just for Heyman. It was for Lesnar to show that Theory didn’t forget.

Lesnar notices that Chad Gable and Otis of Alpha Academy have appeared at ringside. Lesnar says all the cockroaches are showing up. Lesnar looks excited. Otis gets in the ring and stares at Lesnar. Gable chop blocks Lesnar, and Otis hits an avalanche. Lesnar doesn’t leave his feet. Lesnar smiles and clotheslines Otis before sending Gable flying with an overhead belly-to-belly suplex. Lesnar then clotheslines Otis out of the ring. Lesnar goes outside the ring and grabs the top half of the steel steps. Lesnar crushes Gable and Otis with two shots to the head each. Lesnar grabs a steel chair and smokes Gable’s back twice before smashing it on Otis. Lesnar grabs Gable and hits an overhead belly-to-belly suplex on the floor that hits a cameraman. Lesnar then lifts Otis up and hits an F5 through the commentary table! Theory and Heyman watch from the safety of the top of the ramp.

United States Champion Bobby Lashley and Riddle will team up to face Seth “Freakin” Rollins and Theory. Bianca Belair will also defend her Raw Women’s Championship against Carmella.

Rey Mysterio makes his way to the ring alongside his son, Dominik. He’ll face Finn Bálor next.

SummerSlam is 19 days away.

-Commercial Break-

Replays are shown of Rey Mysterio lying, cheating, and stealing a la Eddie Guerrero to beat The Judgment Day last week. The Judgment Day would attack The Mysterios backstage shortly after.

The Judgment Day makes their way to the ring. Damian Priest demands the people show respect to The Judgment Day. What happened to The Mysterios last week was justice. In two weeks at Madison Square Garden, Rey Mysterio will be celebrating his 20th anniversary with WWE. Mysterio is done. He’s washed up. It’s over. Dominik’s father has nothing else to offer him. No wisdom or strength. Just an old, ugly mask and circus tricks that aren’t even his. They have something more to offer. A whole new set of rules. The future of this business will be decided by The Judgment Day. Dominik is welcome to join it. Priest offers Dominik to rise to The Judgment Day or fall next to his father.

Finn Bálor says Dominik needs to start seeing things their way. Rey Mysterio is a legend, but so is Edge. Bálor has a replay showing what happened to Edge last month with The Judgment Day taking him out. Bálor says Edge is gone because he was a bad leader. Mysterio is also a bad leader and a bad father. Rey takes Bálor down. The Mysterios then dropkick Priest out of the ring. They go to attack Bálor, but Priest pulls him out of the ring.

Coming up next, Rey Mysterio will battle Finn Bálor.

-Commercial Break-

Becky Lynch is standing on the commentary table. She says she was devastated when she didn’t win Money in the Bank after all she had to do to get into it. Lynch lost her mind a bit, but then she thought about what happened. Liv Morgan cashing in was like winning the lottery. Lynch doesn’t need to win the lottery because she works her ass off every week for a paycheck. Then she won a No Holds Barred match, which should have made her the #1 Contender. Instead, it’s Carmella. Lynch is going blue in the face saying she should have automatically received a rematch the Monday after WrestleMania. Instead, she has to jump through hoops to get back what is rightfully hers. Lynch doesn’t give a damn who wins tonight because she is demanding a championship match at SummerSlam.

-Commercial Break-

The mysterious vignette plays.

The Miz is in the ring with Ciampa for another edition of Ciampa. Miz says his guest has remorselessly attacked multiple WWE Superstars, including their opponent in a 2-on-1 Handicap match, AJ Styles. Miz asks about Ciampa’s motivation. Ciampa says he wants the eyes of the world on him and no one has more eyes on them than The Miz. Miz puts over his Miz & Mrs. TV show. Miz guided a social media star to victory at WrestleMania. Ciampa says he wants WrestleMania and SummerSlam. He wants it all. Miz gave it all to Logan Paul on a silver platter. Instead of thanking him, Logan Paul sent out a video on social media saying he wants nothing to do with The Miz. Paul says he’s coming for Miz at SummerSlam. The crowd boos. Miz knows what Logan Paul is doing… stirring up controversy. Miz gives him one last opportunity to retract his statement and take his offer. They will become WWE Undisputed Tag Team Champions or he’ll find someone else. Miz doesn’t have to look very far and points at Ciampa. Tonight, they’ll show AJ Styles how great they work together. The eyes of the world will be on them.

AJ Styles comes out and tells Miz to do everyone a favor by telling him to shut his mouth. Styles says every time his back is turned, he’s getting attacked by Miz or Ciampa. Miz has someone to do his dirty work. That’s not brave or powerful. In fact, it sounds like the actions of a man… Miz cuts him off. They’re still trying to get the tiny balls thing over. The crowd isn’t laughing or really chanting it. Styles says Miz is a coward… with tiny, tiny balls. A light laugh is heard. Miz walks around waiting for a chant to pick up. Styles charges the ring and grabs a chair, scaring them out of the ring.

Ezekiel comes out and says he just realized something. He’s never introduced himself to AJ Styles. He’s Elias’ younger brother. Elias used to talk about how phenomenal Styles is inside and outside of the ring. Elias also talked about how Miz has tiny balls. Elias says this match is getting “Zeked Up” by making it a tag match.

-Commercial Break-

At SummerSlam, The Usos will defend their Undisputed WWE Tag Team Championship against The Street Profits with a Special Mystery Guest Referee.

The Usos talk about how they’re dominating both brands and can show up whenever they want. They’re still the Undisputed WWE Tag Team Champions. Jey Uso says The Street Profits have been whining and crying. He’d be doing the same if he was pinned in the middle of the ring by The Usos. It doesn’t matter who the guest referee is. The Street Profits will still get it. The Street Profits are 2’s…

The Street Profits interrupt. Montez Ford sing-songs San Antonio’s name. Angelo Dawkins says The Usos should have just told them they were scared.

R-Truth says Omos cannot count to ten. MVP says Omos wants to be part of this match tonight. MVP says he’s offering Omos to The Bloodline. That’ll even up the odds. The Usos are pleased with this arrangement. The Street Profits and R-Truth are down for a fight. R-Truth says, “Remember the Alamo!” They attack, but Omos and The Usos quickly take them out.
