WWE Summerslam 2018 Kick-Off Show Results 8/19

Welcome to the WWE Summerslam Kick Off Show. We are live from the Barclay Center in Brooklyn, New York and the panel is made up of Renee Young, Booker T, Sam Roberts and David Otunga. They run down the card for tonight.

Renee then throws to Peter Rosenberg who is joined by John Bradshaw Layfield and they reminisce about Summerslam 2004 when JBL defended the WWE Championship against The Undertaker. They then re-cap the events from the end of last week's Monday Night Raw which saw the return of Dean Ambrose who was announced as Seth Rollins cornerman for his Intercontinental Championship match against Dolph Ziggler tonight.

JBL gives his prediction for the match and says Dolph Ziggler walks out as champion but the true winners will be the fans. Regardless, it is set to be one hell of a match. On the kick off tonight, three matches announced.

. Cruiserweight Championship: Cedric Alexander vs Drew Gulak
. Raw Tag Team Championship; B-Team vs The Revival
. Mixed Tag Team Match: Rusev/Lana vs Andrade 'Cien' Almas/Zelina Vega

-

We take a look at the Smackdown Women's Championship match originally Becky Lynch vs Carmella which was then turned into a triple threat match when Charlotte Flair defeated Carmella to earn an opportunity at the championship

Promo: New Day cut their promo saying Brooklyn is where they started their tag team championship reign and also the birthplace of "Francesca" but more importantly it is the place where they will become the 5 times WWE Smackdown Tag Team Champions

Next we take a look back at last Monday's tag team match with Braun Strowman and Finn Balor taking on Jinder Mahal and Kevin Owens followed by a WWE.com Exclusive with Kevin Owens talking about getting his hands on the Money In The Bank briefcase

Rosenberg and JBL discuss Owens planning on getting his hands on the Money In The Bank briefcase. JBL then uses Summerslam 2004 as an example saying he escaped with the championship by getting Undertaker disqualified and that's what Kevin Owens has to do. He has to take a page out of JBL's book and get Strowman disqualified. Rosenberg then asks the question will one of these two possibly cash in tonight

Backstage: Miz, Maryse and baby Monroe Sky arrive at the arena

The next match they take a look at is the eight year feud between Daniel Bryan and The Miz which began at the original NXT when Miz was assigned to be Bryan's mentor

The next match is for the Raw Women's Championship with Alexa Bliss defending against Ronda Rousey and we begin with footage of Ronday Rousey vs Nia Jax with a cash in from Miss Money In The Bank Alexa Bliss at Money In The Bank and Ronda's suspension the next night on Raw and her return

JBL gives his prediction going with Alexa Bliss who has overcome so much and just like they looked at Brock Lesnar and said that guy was going to change the business, Ronda Rousey is going to change the business. Rosennberg and JBL then throw to the first match coming up next on the Kick Off Show. And we begin with Mixed Tag Action

Backstage: Aiden walks in as Rusev and Lana are preparing and says he knows the past few weeks he's messed up but tonight he will make it up to them and Rusev says no tonight it's about Rusev Day and Lana Day and tell English to stay behind

The winners of the match: Andrade 'Cien' Almas and Zelina Vega

Back to the panel and we are joined by WWE Hall Of Famer Jerry "The King" Lawler

Backstage: Charly Caruso catches up with Paul Heyman to get comments on his actions from Raw. Heyman says they are live at Barclay Center and Brock Lesnar will finally get rid of The Big Dog Roman Reigns and then onto UFC where he will get rid of Daniel Cormier and become a two sport champion. Brock Lesnar will beat Roman Reigns and pin him one...two...three and that's not a prediction, that's a spoiler

Backstage: Raw GM Kurt Angle, Smackdown GM Paige and 205 Live GM Drake Maverick are talking and Paige says she's excited about being GM at Summerslam and all three shows have amazing rosters.

Video: Re-cap of AJ Styles-Samoa Joe feud

Samoa Joe joins the panel and Renee asks him if he thinks he went too far with AJ Styles. Joe says what she sees is a man in control of his actions and he does not fear retaliation. Everything he said rung true and if not then why is AJ mad. Booker asks what he thinks Joe's advantage is. Joe says he has Styles mentally broken/ Sty;es is an explosive dyanmic athlete but every time he's put Styles into the ground and taken every championship and tonight is no different. There are wrongs and transgressions in his life and Joe wants to correct them and he's coming for the championship and Styles can either hand it to him or Joe will take it and tells Styles he hopes there's a pillow in the back because Joe is going to put him to sleep
