We noted before that Heath Slater vs. Kofi Kingston was taped last night in Austin, Texas as the first match for WWE's new Saturday Morning Slam show that debuts on August 25th, the Saturday after WWE's SummerSlam pay-per-view. That match saw WWE United States Champion Santino Marella come out for commentary and he had the US Title belt with him.

This could be a sign that Santino will retain the United States Title against Antonio Cesaro in the SummerSlam YouTube pre-show match this coming Sunday, August 19th. It's always possible that WWE could not show Santino on Saturday Morning Slam or do some other kind of editing if they decide to have Cesaro win the title in the SummerSlam pre-show match.
