With the second biggest night on WWE's calendar just two weeks away, a popular superstar is set to make his return from injury at SummerSlam.

Following time out due to a knee injury, as reported by No DQ, Ryback will be returning to WWE at the SummerSlam pay-per-view event on August 23.

Ryback returns

The Big Guy will be looking to defend his Intercontinental Title in a Triple Threat match against The Miz and Big Show in a match-up many thought would not happen.

With him having recently shared an image of his injured knee and it looking as it did, you would be forgiven for thinking he could have been facing a lot more of a wait before making his in-ring return.

With many believing Ryback could be out for months, questions were raised over whether the IC Title would be vacated or whether he could have been defending it sooner than had been thought, confirmation of this match proves the latter.

In addition to this title match-up, WWE World Heavyweight Champion Seth Rollins will be facing United States Champion John Cena for the first time since Rollins broke Cena's nose on Monday Night Raw with his knee.

Seeking revenge

As if this bout was not exciting enough, Cena will not only be looking to seek revenge for his battered nose, but will also be looking to become World Heavyweight Champion once again whilst still retaining his US Title as both belts are on the line. 

Another WWE star who will be looking to seek revenge at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn later this month is none other than The Undertaker.

Having emphatically ended his incredible streak at WrestleMania 30, Brock Lesnar will face The Dead Man and given the physical condition The Undertaker is in of late, The Beast certainly has cause for concern.

Elsewhere, Bray Wyatt will be taking on Roman Reigns and Dean Ambrose with the help of Luke Harper, despite there being much speculation surrounding the possibility of the inclusion of a third man being added to both sides.

Although a WWE Divas match has not yet been confirmed for the second biggest pay-per-view event of the year, it is likely we will see the NXT Divas Revolution continue following this week's edition of Monday Night Raw.

Becky Lynch and Charlotte continued to showcase their incredible in-ring ability with a win over Brie and Nikki Bella on Monday night.

Charlotte eventually gained the win through use of her Figure Eight move on Nikki Bella, perhaps prompting a match-up between the current WWE Diva's Champ and the previous NXT Women's Champ at SummerSlam.

If this bout is confirmed however, given Nikki could beat AJ Lee's record of being WWE Diva's Champion for the longest time should she hold the title just past Night Of Champions in September, it is likely she would retain.

As this is WWE however, anything could happen and with the match card only really half full, there are sure to be plenty more interesting matches added between now and August 23.
