- This week's WWE SmackDown saw Rusev and Lana defeat Andrade "Cien" Almas and Zelina Vega in a SummerSlam Kickoff rematch, thanks to an assist from Aiden English. Above is post-show video of English making up with Lana & Rusev backstage.
- Harper took to Twitter after SmackDown and wrote the following message to Rowan, who is headed to Alabama this week to undergo surgery for a biceps tear. SmackDown saw The Bludgeon Brothers drop the SmackDown Tag Team Titles to The New Day in a No DQ match, likely because of the Rowan injury.
Thanks Rowan.— . (@LukeHarperWWE) August 22, 2018
