Two Championship Matches, Demon Balor Set For WWE Summerslam

A Summerslam card that seemed full already added two more matches on Monday Night Raw.

Sasha Banks will contend for the WWE Raw Women's Championship this Sunday. The former champion defeated Nia Jax in the finals of the title contender tournament in order to gain an opportunity to face champion Alexa Bliss. Originally Bayley was set for a title shot, but injured her shoulder and was forced out of the match.

Also added to the show was a big WWE Raw Tag Team Championship Match. Champions Sheamus and Cesaro will look to defend their titles against two-thirds of The Shield, as Seth Rollins and Dean Ambrose reunited on Monday Night Raw. After a brawl between the two duos, WWE Raw General Manager Kurt Angle booked the match. 

After Finn Balor was defeated on Raw by Bray Wyatt, Kurt Angle granted Balor a re-match. Balor indicated that he'd be bringing his "Demon" persona back for the first time in a year.

You can see WWE Summerslam this Sunday from the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York. Fightful.com will have full, live coverage of the show, including a live post-show podcast.
