WWE Summerslam Card Updated with SmackDown! Spoilers

WWE’s annual Summerslam pay-per-view takes place this Sunday, and while the marquee matchup was made clear, in principle, several weeks ago, there remain some unanswered questions going into the big summer event.

As of Monday’s WWE RAW, the 7-on-7 elimination main-event between Nexus and Team WWE was not being advertised in its entirety. With The Great Khali possibly out of the match due to the ‘attack’ he suffered on RAW, there are only six WWE wrestlers confirmed.

The Miz teased joining Team WWE in a backstage segment with Bret Hart and John Cena, but he noted that he would not formally “confirm” his participation until Sunday.

Below is the current card for Summerslam, including one match that will be revealed on Friday’s SmackDown! broadcast:

Team WWE vs. Team Nexus
John Cena, Edge, Chris Jericho, Bret Hart, John Morrison, R-Truth and TBD vs. Wade Barrett, Skip Sheffield, Michael Tarver, David Otunga, Heath Slater, Darren Young and Justin Gabriel

WWE Championship
Sheamus (c) vs. Randy Orton

World Heavyweight Championship
Kane (c) vs. Rey Mysterio

Intercontinental Championship
Dolph Ziggler (c) vs. Kofi Kingston

Big Show vs. The Straight Edge Society

Divas Championship
Alicia Fox (c) vs. Melina
