SummerSlam World Title match called off by Booker T
With one week to go for SummerSlam, the World Heavyweight title match is no more as Booker T announced in an exclusive WWE.COM video that the match between Alberto Del Rio and current champion Sheamus is off. The punishment is due to Del Rio’s stunt from Friday’s Smackdown, where a bunch of “cops” attacked Sheamus.
The show – which will celebrate the 25th annual – so far has only four matches on the card including Triple H vs Brock Lesnar, CM Punk vs Big Show vs John Cena, Kane vs Daniel Bryan, and Dolph Ziggler vs Chris Jericho.
The World Heavyweight title situation will likely be resolved by the next Smackdown tapings which will be held on Tuesday night.
