WWE: Ryback to defend Intercontinental Title at SummerSlam against Miz and Big Show

Published 1 Comments

SummerSlam is now little more than a few weeks away and the biggest event of the Summer is starting to take shape.

Brock Lesnar and The Undertaker will be meeting inside the squared circle to settle the incredible feud that started at the Battleground Pay-Per-View.

Meanwhile, John Cena will be challenging Seth Rollins in a Title vs Title match, while Roman Reigns and Dean Ambrose are looking set to take on Bray Wyatt and Luke Harper in a tag-team match. And now we have another title match.

Triple Threat

According to a report from Wrestling Inc, on this week's taping of SmackDown - which has yet to air - the WWE will apparently announce a match for the Intercontinental Championship.

Ryback, the current holder, will finally be facing off against The Miz and Big Show in a triple threat match that has been a long time in the making.

John Canton of What Culture went in to more detail on the revelation, reporting that it was seemingly confirmed in a backstage segment with the Big Show.

"Big Show was interviewed backstage and mentioned a SummerSlam match for the Intercontinental Title against Ryback and The Miz."

This match was supposed to happen last month at Battleground, with Ryback ultimately looking like he would retain his title against the former tag team members of ShoMiz.

Injury Struggle

That was all until Ryback contracted a staph infection in his right leg that was incredibly serious and has kept him off television for weeks. He posted a photo of it a couple of days ago - which he then quickly deleted - and it is not pretty.

Ryback being out has left Miz and Big Show to feud on their own in an angle that is fast becoming stale. Hopefully The Big Guy can be healthy enough to feature at SummerSlam and finally put this feud to rest.
