Posted By: Elio C. Jr. on Aug 19, 2018

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

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
