There are now ten matches that have been made official for SummerSlam after Finn Balor was informed that he would take on Constable Baron Corbin at the Biggest Party of the Summer.
Finn Balor and Baron Corbin collided at Extreme Rules last month where Balor was victorious and have since continued their feud over the past few weeks. Balor is currently undefeated at SummerSlam and two years ago he lifted the Universal Championship when he defeated Seth Rollins in the main event.
Balor will be hoping that this will be his way of stepping back into the Universal title picture, which could also include Roman Reigns following SummerSlam since he has claimed a number of times that he is still yet to have his rematch for the title he never lost.

Another match that many fans thought would be made official for SummerSlam is the multi-team match for the Raw Tag Team Championships which will include current Champions The B-Team, former NXT Tag Team Champions The Revival and former Champions Matt Hardy and Bray Wyatt, but instead, this match has been made for next week’s episode of Raw.
Since SummerSlam is expected to be around seven hours long, there is definitely time for the match to be added to the card and if there isn’t a definitive winner on the go-home episode of the show next week (which is quite likely) then General Manager Kurt Angle could be forced to make it official for SummerSlam instead.
We are now less than two weeks away from one of WWE’s biggest events of the year and the hype surrounding the match is set to reach its climax as part of the go-home episodes of their main shows next week.
