** SPOILER ** Update On World Title Picture For SummerSlam

Alberto Del Rio defeated Chris Jericho in the main event of tonight's SmackDown taping in Austin, TX, after Dolph Ziggler interfered. After the match, Ziggler and Del Rio double teamed Jericho until Sheamus made the save. Del Rio originally attacked Sheamus, but Sheamus was able to mount a comeback and Del Rio escaped through the crowd.

SmackDown General Manager Booker T came out and told Sheamus that he shouldn't be there since he was injured. Sheamus pleaded to Booker to have his match with Del Rio re-instated for SummerSlam. Booker originally said "no," but relented after Sheamus repeatedly said "please."

So Sheamus vs. Alberto Del Rio is back on for SummerSlam.
