The 27th annual WWE SummerSlam will come to you, live on the WWE Network, tomorrow night, August 17, at 8/7c from the Staples Center in Los Angeles, CA. Three championships will be on the line at SummerSlam in addition to a Lumberjack Match, a Flag Match, and three grudge matches. Here is the final card for “The Biggest Event of the Summer”:
- WWE World Heavyweight Championship: John Cena (c) vs. Brock Lesnar
- Brie Bella vs. Stephanie McMahon
- Lumberjack Match: Dean Ambrose vs. Seth Rollins
- Roman Reigns vs. Randy Orton
- Luke Harper & Erick Rowan Banned from Ringside: Chris Jericho vs. Bray Wyatt
- Flag Match: Jack Swagger vs. Rusev
- Intercontinental Championship: The Miz (c) vs. Dolph Ziggler
- Divas Championship: AJ Lee (c) vs. Paige
- Kickoff Exclusive: Cesaro vs. Rob Van Dam
In the Lumberjack Match, 20 WWE Superstars will surround the ring for the duration of the match and, whenever a competitor is thrown outside of the ring, the job of the lumberjacks is to throw the competitor back into the ring (though they will often assault the competitor before doing so). If a lumberjack enters the ring, the referee will call for the match to be ended. The match ends by pinfall, submission, or disqualification.
In the Flag Match, the flags of each competitor’s represented nation (in this case, Russia and the United States) will be positioned on a pole on opposite corners of the ring and the first Superstar to successfully retrieve their nation’s flag will be declared the winner. The Flag Match will have no pinfalls, no submissions, no disqualifications, and no count-outs.
