WWE will be taping Smackdown tonight in Austin, Texas, setting up a new number one contender for Sheamus for Summerslam. The promo for the episode featured Randy Orton, Cody Rhodes and Sin Cara so they will feature prominently into the episode. There was talk over the weekend of doing the "Beat the Clock" challenge.

A lot of people have asked why Alberto Del Rio was pulled from Summerslam. As of today, we haven't heard anything behind the change except that it was likely just storyline related.

WWE's storyline update is that Brock Lesnar did indeed break Shawn Michaels' arm last night. They did not update whether Michaels will still be in Triple H's corner for Summerslam.

AJ Lee was interviewed with Chad Dukes of 106.7 The Fan CBS Radio DC at this link.

Former WWE Diva Maryse was featured on the Hollywoodtuna.com website.
