Smackdown comes to us live from the Bridgestone Arena in Nashville, Tennessee as we see Randy Orton backstage with Daniel Bryan & Shane McMahon.

They are interrupted by The Miz as he is informed of a 3-way match tonight including Baron Corbin, Apollo Crews & Kalisto to determine the opponent for Miz at Summer Slam. WWE World Champion Dean Ambrose comes down to kick off the show in the ring. Dean says it was hard getting to where he is but now its about building his legacy and that he is here to stay. He brings up Dolph Ziggler calling him the “Showoff” and invites him to the ring. Dolph tells Dean he is a big fan and that they’re both similar, Dean says they’re not because he’s not for show. Dolph says his road was harder because he came in as part of the Spirit Squad not The Shield. Dean calls Ziggler a complainer and that he cares too much about image and what people think about him, Dean says he could care less about all of those things. Ambrose says Dolph will do what he always does and that’s stealing the show but will still lose. Ziggler says he cares about what he does and he brings up being a walk on at Penn State and getting a chance, he says he will burn the house down in Brooklyn and he will become champion. Dean answers back saying Ziggler will still lose because in the end he just isn’t as good as he thinks he is. Deans music hit and he walks back up the ramp, the lights suddenly go out and Bray Wyatt appears in the ring and delivers a Sister Abigail to Ziggler. Bray offers a challenge to Dolph saying that he isn’t sure he is the right guy for the main event. Wyatt says he Dolph beats him tonight then he will have proved himself but if he loses, Bray will take his place in the Main Event at Summer Slam against Ambrose.
