Following last week's injury angle where The Club took out Big E on Raw, WWE confirmed on Monday that Xavier Woods and Kofi Kingston will defend their tag titles against The Club's Karl Anderson and Luke Gallows at SummerSlam.

Tonight's episode of Raw should provide more information on Big E's storyline condition, but WWE.com initially reported that he had suffered a groin injury after The Club's attack. It was later updated that the injury was a contusion to the area, and WWE.com said it was unknown when he would return.

Big E was held out of action on this weekend's live events as his New Day partners have defended against The Club, but Big E has distracted The Club leading to the finish in both weekend matches.

Though more will be added, the updated card for SummerSlam on August 21st at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, NY, is:

  • Brock Lesnar vs. Randy Orton
  • Finn Balor vs. Seth Rollins for the WWE Universal Championship
  • WWE Champion Dean Ambrose vs. Dolph Ziggler in a championship match
  • John Cena vs. AJ Styles
  • WWE Women's Champion Sasha Banks vs. Charlotte in a championship match
  • Intercontinental Champion The Miz vs. Apollo Crews in a championship match
  • WWE Tag Team Champions The New Day (Xavier Woods & Kofi Kingston) vs. The Club (Karl Anderson & Luke Gallows) in a championship match
