Intergender Kickoff Match Added to WWE SummerSlam; Updated PPV Card Feat. 12 Matches, MITB Defense, More


Over the last few weeks a new rivalry has sprung up on Tuesday nights, as Smackdown Live newcomers Andrade Cien Almas and his manager Zelina Vega have not taken too kindly to the antics of WWE power couple Rusev and Lana. This week on the blue brand, Vega snuck out a victory over the Ravishing Russian after an attempted assist from cheerleader Aiden English went very, very wrong.

WWE has officially announced that Almas and Vega will team up for a huge intergender tag team match against Rusev and Lana, next Sunday at WWE SummerSlam. The bout will take place during what is expected to be an XL version of the SummerSlam Kickoff Show.
