Raw Women's, Tag Team title matches set for SummerSlam


Two more title matches have been added to this Sunday's WWE SummerSlam card.

Sasha Banks defeated Nia Jax in her hometown of Boston Monday on WWE Raw to become the new number one contender to Alexa Bliss' Raw Women's championship. Originally the title match was to be Bliss vs. Bayley, but a shoulder injury put Bayley on the shelf.

Also added to the card is a Raw tag team title match pitting champions Sheamus and Cesaro against Dean Ambrose and Seth Rollins. Ambrose and Rollins have been teasing a reunion for weeks, each wanting to reunite, but neither pulling the trigger.

It was more of the same in the first few minutes of Raw with the situation between the two devolving into a fistfight. When they dispatched Cesaro and Sheamus, who looked to take advantage of the situation, both Rollins and Ambrose laid them out. They then officially reunited, sealing the deal with the classic Shield fist bump. Kurt Angle then came out to make the tag title announcement.

SummerSlam takes place this Sunday on the WWE Network, live from the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York.
