Apparently, next week's Raw will be taped for the E's heading overseas. We get one return (THANK GOD SHE'S BACK) and more dissension within The Ce-Team.
* The show starts with the announcement that Randy Orton will face The Miz later tonight.
* Edge comes out and says his SummerSlam team is falling apart. He challenges Wade Barrett for a match later tonight. R-Truth comes out and interrupts. R-Truth says they're fighting for their lives, the WWE Universe. Edge says he will spear Truth out of the ring. The General Manager emails in and announces Edge vs. Barrett for right now.
* Edge vs. Wade Barrett. The match ends in no contest when Barrett gets out of the ring when Edge attempts the Spear. Barrett motions for The Nexus to come out but Edge leaves through the crowd.
* WWE Divas Champion Alicia Fox, Jillian Hall & Tamina vs. Natalya, Gail Kim & Eve Torres. Winners after Alicia pins Natalya following an Axe Kick, Alicia Fox, Jillian, & Tamina. Alicia gets on the mic and says she's the best Diva on the Raw roster. Melina comes out and gives Alicia her Sunset Split finisher to a huge pop from the crowd.
* Backstage, Edge asks John Cena where he was when Nexus interfered. Edge says he quits Team Cena. Chris Jericho tells Cena he should quit as well. Jericho proposes a match - Jericho vs. Cena and the loser quits the SummerSlam team.
* Backstage, John Morrison tells The Great Khali that seven samurais work together. Khali says there were seven dwarfs too. It's announced Khali will face Ted DiBiase tonight. The Nexus try to recruit Khali.
* Sheamus beat Goldust in a squash match after hitting the Celtic Cross. Sheamus got on the mic after the match and said he beat Goldust last year on ECW. He said he's a two-time WWE Champion and he did it without a briefcase or being a third generation Superstar. He ended Triple H's career. He doesn't need the fans and he has what he needs, the WWE Championship.
* Chris Jericho vs. John Cena in a loser must quit Team Cena at SummerSlam. Cena beat Jericho when he reversed the Walls of Jericho into the STF, making Jericho tap immediately (I'm told he tapped the second Cena hooked it). After the match, Cena told Jericho he doesn't want him off Team Cena at SummerSlam because he is the best in the world at what he does. He says if he leaves he's letting everyone else down, even himself. Jericho gets out of the ring and heads to the back up the ramp.
* A vignette airs for the debut of Alberto Del Rio.
* Backstage, Chris Jericho enters Edge's locker room. They say Cena needs both of them more than they need Cena. Jericho and Edge let bygones by bygones and hug. The General Manager emails in and says Edge & Chris Jericho will face John Cena & Bret Hart on Raw next week (8/9) with The Nexus as lumberjacks.
* Randy Orton invites Sheamus to ringside for his match against The Miz tonight.
* The Great Khali vs. Ted DiBiase w/Maryse. Wade Barrett and Skip Sheffield come out during the match. They grab the Million Dollar Belt which distracts DiBiase. Khali applies the Vise Grip to win the match. Barrett gives the belt to Maryse. Khali and Barrett look at each other then Khali exits the ring and leaves.
* The Miz comes out and cuts a promo and tells Randy Orton his moment is after his match at SummerSlam. Orton comes out. The Miz vs. Randy Orton. WWE Champion Sheamus watches the match from the ramp. The Miz hits a lot of offense in the match but ends up getting hit with the RKO, allowing Orton to pickup the victory. After the match, Sheamus tries to get into the ring but Orton stares him down from the Viper position.
Hmmm...WCW teased Sting joining the nWo...
