Finn Balor vs. Baron Corbin set for WWE SummerSlam
July 12, 2020
Finn Balor and Baron Corbin are set to face off on pay-per-view for the second straight month.
Balor vs. Corbin was added to the SummerSlam card on tonight’s episode of Raw. Balor won their match at Extreme Rules in July, while Corbin defeated him in the rematch they had on Raw last week.
Their storyline has been built around Corbin mocking Balor and his height. On tonight’s episode, Balor prevented Corbin from bailing on his match against Roman Reigns. After Corbin lost, Balor dropkicked him and gave him the Coup de Grace.
SummerSlam will be held at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York on August 19. Here’s the updated card:
Universal Champion Brock Lesnar defending against Roman Reigns
Raw Women’s Champion Alexa Bliss defending against Ronda Rousey
WWE Champion AJ Styles defending against Samoa Joe
SmackDown Women’s Champion Carmella defending against Becky Lynch and Charlotte Flair in a triple threat match

SmackDown Tag Team Champions The Bludgeon Brothers defending against the winners of SmackDown’s tag team tournament (either The New Day or Cesaro & Sheamus)
