8. Another Match Added To SummerSlam 2016
WWE announced a “Best of Seven” Series between the former United States Champion Cesaro & the former WWE World Heavyweight Champion Sheamus. The first match of the series will take place at SummerSlam 2016 this Sunday. Below is what WWE posted:
“A Best of Seven Series between Cesaro and Sheamus to determine which Superstar is physically dominant — and, perhaps, worthy of championship consideration — gets underway this Sunday at SummerSlam. If the series’ opener is anything like The Swiss Superman and The Celtic Warrior’s last two outings on Raw, the WWE Universe is in for a gloriously unpretentious knock-down, drag-out fight in Brooklyn, N.Y.”
