The rematch is on. 

A rematch for the WWE World Heavyweight Championship is official for SummerSlam on August 5th in Detroit, Michigan. It’ll be Finn Bálor challenging Seth Rollins for the World Heavyweight Championship. At Money in the Bank, Mr. Money in the Bank and fellow Judgment Day member Damian Priest being ringside distracted Bálor and led to him losing. 

Bálor approached Rollins during his sit-down interview on Raw and urged him to speak to management about a rematch at SummerSlam. 

Before Kevin Owens and Sami Zayn defended the Undisputed WWE Tag Team Titles in the main event of Raw against Damian Priest and Dominik Mysterio, Rollins made a run-in and dove onto Bálor who was ringside. 

Here is the new SummerSlam card: 

  • Cody Rhodes vs. Brock Lesnar 
  • Ronda Rousey vs. Shayna Baszler
  • WWE World Heavyweight Championship: Seth Rollins (c) vs. Finn Bálor
