AJ Styles returns to address Samoa Joe

The New Day and The Bar clash for SummerSlam title opportunity
The tournament to determine who will challenge SmackDown Tag Team Champions The Bludgeon Brothers at SummerSlam concludes tonight, as The New Day clash with The Bar in the finals.
Big E & Xavier Woods defeated SAnitY to earn their place in the final match, while Sheamus & Cesaro emerged victorious from a hard-hitting throwdown with The Usos to move one step closer to earning a title opportunity at The Biggest Event of The Summer.

Will The Celtic Warrior and The Swiss Cyborg once again be victorious, or will The New Day earn the right to challenge for their fifth tag team championship at SummerSlam?
