We will also have an exclusive interview with WWE Champion Kofi Kingston who will respond to Randy Orton about their verbal clash last week, in which the Viper has repeatedly called him a fool for challenging him. Plus we’ll have updates on the Roman Reigns situation and the backstage attacks to figure out who orchestrated all this against him. We will also know if Aleister Black will accept last week’s challenge from Sami Zayn for Summerslam. So without further ado let’s start with this episode of Smackdown.
The episode begins with Charlotte appearing in the ring and, with fare superiore, she says she represents greatness, the one we all want to have but cannot afford because we are not genetically superior like her. and so we just drop that wish or do something just like Trish Stratus. At this point, continue talking about the canadian, saying that despite all his past successes, she can not compete at this time with those at the top of the’ evolution of wrestling female, adding that the wrestlers of the past are not the slightest bit comparable in skill to those of the present. He adds that Trish wants to fight another match just because the event is in Canada in front of her family and therefore wants to realize this dream, but concludes by saying that she will turn it into her worst nightmare. Later he decides to send a video showing his career but after a while, images of Trish’s career begin to appear unbeknownst to him and the video resounds the theme of the Canadian who shows up in the ring, with Charlotte visibly annoyed by the inconvenience. Trish ironically says Charlotte didn’t expect this off-schedule because queens are used to being heard. Going into the ring she goes on to say that this is an opportunity for her to prove to fans, her children, her husband, Harley Race(recently deceased) and above all to herself what is worth, telling Flair that she will also be the Queen, but it will never be her. Charlotte then promises that Summerslam will make her kneel to the Queen and Trish annoys her with a slap. Charlotte took the shot laughs and comes out of the square. At the end of this, an interview is announced that Roman will release about the events that have happened to him in the last week.
Rey is caught backstage walking into the ring to face Dolph Ziggler. The first to enter is Dolph who, however, does it by imitating the entrance of Goldberg with a lot of guards in tow. It is then Rey’s time that he is attacked before climbing into the ring with a Superkick. From the backstage come the referees to appease the Show Off but he continues raising Rey and hitting him with another Superkick. He then goes to pick up a microphone and, as he climbs into the ring, says that this and yet another legend put down by him and with Goldberg at Summerslam will do the same because it is time to end the time of nostalgia once and for all. He concludes by saying that this will be Goldberg’s last career match. However, Ali’s theme resonates in a hurry, after being sincere about Rey’s condition, he hits Dolph first with a Spinning Kick and then with a Suicide Dive out of the square. The challenge is set.

After a video showing the latest events that happened to Roman in Raw and Smackdown, Kayla Braxton interviews The Bog Dog. After thanking him for the interview he asks him the first question and that is how he explains all these adversities that are happening to him. Reigns replies that he does not know how to give an explanation to all this, much less to say who may have accomplished all this, groping in total darkness. Kayla then asks if he fears for his safety, and Roman responds that he trusts in the WWE and is not afraid for his health saying that he is not afraid of who, rather than face him in the ring openly, prefer to attack him in the shadows behind you, and saying that , in the case, is willing to protect his family if necessary. After apologizing to Joe for unfairly blaming him, he closes by saying that by tonight he wants to find footage of the incident because he wants answers by the same night.

The Canadian reacts by hitting the opponent with a series of punches at the corner and then throwing it on the ropes to attempt a Back Body Drop, but Ember falls to his feet and hits Natalya with Face First. Here Natalya escapes out of the ring to avoid Ember’s maneuver from the stake but is still hit by a drop kick that causes her to end up on the balustrade. Here she gets distracted by the crowd choirs in her favor and Natalya pushes her first on the apron and then hits her with a Clothesline. He then runs the Sharpshooter, always out of the ring, until the referee closes the match for a double count of ten. The Canadian continued her maneuver until Bailey’s music resonated, interrupting her maneuver by driving her away from Ember. Natalya leaves with Bailey helping her rival Summerslam.
He returns to the square with Kevin Owens in the ring to present his show but the candese cuts short and immediately calls Shane in the ring to have a face-to-face confrontation. At first he doesn’t come and Kevin starts calling him a coward but then his theme resounds and Shane goes up to the square. He then heads to the stake because he wants his classic exaggerated introduction but Owens rips the microphone out of the hands of announcer Greg Hamilton. Owens, back in the ring, immediately starts asking Shane a question asking him why he didn’t even put his career up for grabs in the Summerslam match, thus giving the audience what the audience wants and proving for once that he is a man. Shane replies that he won’t stake it simply because it was Kevin who wanted this stipulation, he also says that he won’t because he is sure to win this match, and he is so convinced that he will only have to choose the way to do it because he explains that in any way that will happen he will lose and will leave WWE. The Canadian answers ce is not surprised at this because he does not have the balls to do it and throws the microphone to the ground. The weather overheats and both throw the contour objects out of the ring but before the two come to their hands comes Elias from behind to block Owens’s feet and allow Shane to hit him. They throw Owens out of the square but here Kevin rebels by hitting both of them and throwing Shane on the commenters ‘ table, which then cleans up his monitors. Elias arrives and lands with a Stunner, but Shane takes advantage of it and lands it and then hits it with a series of punches and pummels. Later he decides to bury him under the table himself still continuing to hit him with punches and kicks. He then takes a chair and places it on Owens ‘ face and drops a kick on Owens. His action continues with slaps and insults until referees arrive to stop him and drive him away.
Sami Zayn shows up in the ring with a microphone and says of the gift he gave Aleister Black in challenging him to Summerslam because he gives him the attention he desperately seeks from fans. However, he goes on to say that he has not received a response this week and this leads him to say that Black is still in his dark, hidden room, because he feels safe and does not face him because he is afraid. But at this point the theme of Black resonates that, displacing everyone, says that this match will not take place at Summerslam but, twist, tonight.

He then recovers óa citarra and sene goes with Gable irritated by these words. Maybe a feud between the two?
Tom Phillips launches a video in which we witness the interview given by WWE Champion Kofi Kingston as they scroll through some images of him against Orton in past matches. Kofi says it was difficult to face him in the past because he was a tough opponent, but he knew he could count on the support of the audience who praised his name and was always behind him. But that was not enough, because Randy continued to humiliate him, and this has led Kofi quasia leave the company because he felt not up to it, but then decided not to give up and continue to try to become a superstar principal of the company, and after 11 years we managed to win the title up to Wrestlrmania. Kingston hopes that all this done by him can serve to make people understand that anything is possible if losi wants, and would use his influence to convince people of this, unlike Orton who, in his opinion, uses his influence to drown people, as he did with him.
