Welcome to Ringside News’ coverage of SummerSlam 2019!

Ladies and gentlemen, the party of the summer is here! WWE’s second of four nights in Toronto brings us SummerSlam 2019 for a mammoth card that is expected to run seven hours, including the Kick-Off Show, beginning at 5 PM.

There’s obviously way too many matches to give a full rundown, so we’re just gonna list them and get down to business. Seth Rollins Vs. Brock Lesnar for the WWE Universal Championship, Randy Orton Vs. Kofi Kingston for the WWE Championship, Becky Lynch Vs. Natalya for the Raw Women’s Championship, Bayley Vs. Ember Moon for the SmackDown Women’s Championship, AJ Styles Vs. Ricochet for the United States Championship, Drew Gulak Vs. Oney Lorcan for the Cruiserweight Championship, Charlotte Vs. Trish Stratus, Finn Balor Vs. Bray Wyatt, Kevin Owens Vs. Shane McMahon, and Goldberg Vs. Dolph Ziggler.

That’s ten matches, that we know of, but it’s odd that there are no tag team bouts announced. We know The Uso’s can’t be there, but to have neither Raw nor SmackDown’s tag titles on the line is bizarre. Anyway, that’s the card for SummerSlam 2019, which we will be providing live updates for from 5 PM until the end of time. Be sure to join the conversation in the comments, by downloading the Ringside News app, or by following us on Twitter or Instagram. Enjoy the show.


Kick-Off Show

The Kick-Off panel consists of Coach, Beth Phoenix, David Otunga, and Charly Caruso. Sam Roberts and JBL are standing at ringside, and they mention Goldberg Vs. Miz.

The Miz joins the panel and he says Dolph has been talking a lot about legends and tonight he has his big chance. He says that, whatever is left of Ziggler, he gets tomorrow night on Raw. He says tonight is going to be awesome.

Kofi Kingston takes on Randy Orton tonight with the WWE Championship on the line. We see a video package hyping the match, going back to 2007. We return to the panel and Beth says everyone did know back then that Randy held Kofi back. Miz says none of that matters, you can only look at yourself and not blame anyone. Miz says he’s excited to see this version of Kofi, who is more dangerous than ever. They go to Sam and JBL again, and Sam says this is the match he is most excited about. JBL says Kofi wasn’t ready ten years ago, he didn’t deserve to be there. But he does now and this could be a show-stealer.

We go backstage for an interview between Charlotte and Kayla Braxton. Charlotte says that Trish Stratus has been sitting at home, day-dreaming of one last match, and tonight we realise she was never that good. Never on her level. Back with the panel, Coach says this is a dream match and Charlotte has the chance to take the crown. Phoenix says that beating Trish Stratus is the pinnacle of the business, but Flair has her work cut out for her.

We see a video package for Bray Wyatt Vs. Finn Balor. Sam Roberts says it’s going to be a massacre tonight. He says if Finn had any brains at all, he would come as The Demon, otherwise it’s going to be a horror movie. He says he has zero chance tonight. JBL agrees that The Fiend is likely to win, but that Balor is a technical genius and it could make for a great match-up. Mick Foley has joined the panel, and he says he’s lost a lot of matches in his career and faced a lot of intimidating foes but that he never felt as hopeless as when he was in there with The Fiend. Coach asks Foley what is so special about the Mandible Claw, and Foley says it suffocates you as well as presses on nerves under the tongue that paralyse you. He says he developed it to intimidate The Undertaker and, based on what he experienced, The Fiend has mastered it.

It’s time to watch a hype video for Kevin Owens Vs. Shane McMahon. Owens says Shane gets to do whatever he pleases because he’s a McMahon. He put his job on the line tonight because he knew that is the only way in which Shane would accept. The panel discuss the match and say that Shane can’t be taken lightly, because he’s not the best but he is a crazy person. There’s more on the line for Owens however, so the pressure is on him.

Finn Balor is backstage and in walk The O.C. Finn says they’ve been busy lately, pointing to their gold. Gallows says yes, they’re making sure everyone knows it’s their world. Anderson says tonight Styles tops Ricochet one last time, and Styles says Finn might need some help. Balor says he’s ready to play mind-games with Bray. Styles says he knows that but he can offer him their services and they hold up the Too Sweet, and walk of.

After a video, Sam Roberts says that it wasn’t long ago he told AJ Styles he needed to find his bite again, and it seems he has. JBL says this match could be a classic because Ricochet is like Too Cold Scorpio x10. He compares Ricochet to Shawn Michaels as a once in a lifetime athlete.

Jerry Lawler and Booker T have joined Coach and Charly Caruso on the Kick-Off Show. Drake Maverick walks up and starts asking if they’ve seen R-Truth.

Elias is in the ring and he says he’s been here all week long, signing autographs and Toronto is a special place. So he wrote a song about it. Elias begins singing; he says Torontonians think they’re the centre of the universe; they don’t have a Stanley Cup; that the Blue Jays can’t sell out a game; that he has nothing good to say; and that he can’t wait to leave like Kawhi Leonard. Elias is interrupted by none other that Toronto’s very own, EDGE! The Rated R-Superstar comes to the ring and stands across from Elias, then runs and hits a Spear! Edge poses before leaving. That was awesome.

Her light shines the brightest under the spotlight and the hardest part has been waiting for this night to come. She mentions that Charlotte thinks the women now are better than then, but she says the contemporaries take the real pioneers for granted, and have no idea how lucky they are. She says tonight she proves that Charlotte Flair cannot walk a mile in her boots.

Goldberg leaves and Ziggler grabs the microphone again.

He calls out Goldberg again and says anybody can get lucky twice. He says Goldberg doesn’t have the balls to face him man-to-man, and that’s why he’s a laughing stock in this business.

He hits the ropes twice before connecting with a third and final Spear.
