Raw Tag Team title match set for WWE SummerSlam pre-show


The Raw Tag Team titles will be on the line on the SummerSlam pre-show.

The B-Team defending their titles against The Revival was added to the SummerSlam card on tonight's go-home edition of Raw. It was announced after Curtis Axel & Bo Dallas retained their titles against The Revival and Matt Hardy & Bray Wyatt. Axel blind-tagged himself in near the finish, Scott Dawson and Dash Wilder hit the Shatter Machine on Wyatt, and Axel threw Dawson out of the ring before getting the pin.

There will also be two other matches on Sunday's kickoff show. Rusev & Lana will face Andrade "Cien" Almas & Zelina Vega, and it was officially confirmed tonight that Cedric Alexander's Cruiserweight Championship defense against Drew Gulak will be on the pre-show.
