Before the madness ensues on Sunday night in Philadelphia for WWE Battleground, Tye Dillinger will take on Aiden English in a one-on-one match during the Battleground Kickoff Show. Also, The New Day gets another attempt to defeat The Usos for the WWE "SmackDown" Tag Team titles.

As for the rest of the matches, Shinsuke Nakamura is still favoured to overcome Baron Corbin and Mike Kanellis is projected to get a debut victory over Sami Zayn.

Charlotte Flair, Becky Lynch, Natalya, Tamina and Lana battle in a Fatal 5 Way Elimination Match where the victor will face the SmackDown Live Women's Champion at SummerSlam.

AJ Styles makes his first defense of the United States Championship against the former champion, Kevin Owens.

As of right now, it looks like there are only two possible opponents for AJ Styles at SummerSlam: Shinsuke Nakamura and John Cena, and according to Dave Meltzer of the Wrestling Observer Newsletter, the number one contender for the US Title at next month's show will likely be one of those two men. These two have battled in plenty of other stipulation matches, including a Chain Match and their I Quit Match with different results each time. And make sure you don't miss the Kickoff Show, which begins at 4pm PST/7pm EST.
