During a backstage segment, Owens was approached by Ric Flair, who has been by Orton's side for several weeks. Flair tried to give Owens some advice about worrying about himself instead of looking out for other people. This comes after Owens tried to mediate a potential reunion between Liv Morgan and Ruby Riott, which ultimately ended in the two of them teaming up to face the IIconics.
Owens did not take too kindly to Flair's advice and wanted to prove to Flair that he has plenty of fight left in him and issued a challenge to Orton for the August 10 edition of Raw. The match was made official later in the night.
Orton is currently in a feud with WWE Champion Drew McIntyre and the two of them are going to face off for the WWE title at SummerSlam later this year. Fightful will have live coverage of SummerSlam.
The bout came together when Asuka issued a challenge to Sasha for the Raw Women's Title at SummerSlam and Sasha threw Bayley in her way of the rematch.
