The WWE has announced another title match for SummerSlam on Sunday, August 19th at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York.

On Monday, the WWE posted a video with Drake Maverick announcing that Cruiserweight champion Cedric Alexander will defend the title against Drew Gulak at the event. This was set up by Gulak defeating Hideo Itami, Mustafa Ali, and TJP on last week’s edition of 205 Live.

It is the first time the Cruiserweight title will be defended at a WWE pay-per-view since the Greatest Royal Rumble event past in April.


Alexander became Cruiserweight champion at WrestleMania earlier this year, defeating Mustafa Ali in the finals of the tournament for the vacant title.

It is unknown if this match will be part of the main show or the kickoff portion.
