The show, called the SummerSlam Kickoff, will feature a free live streaming match as part of the special, to warm up the fans ahead of the main event. Fans can watch the free match online Sunday night which will feature Rob Van Dam challenging Dean Ambrose for the WWE United States Championship!
During the show, there will be pre-SummerSlam hype and reports from the venue, the Staples Center, as WWE and their panel discuss all the latest info. Also, returning superstar Rob Van Dam will attempt to take the United States title from Dean Ambrose of The Shield. Ambrose has held the title ever since defeating Kofi Kingston on May 19th at Extreme Rules 2013. Ambrose has had an 88 day reign and counting now.
Meanwhile Rob Van Dam recently outlasted nineteen other competitors to win a 20-man battle royal which gave him the title shot at the SummerSlam pay-per-view. Among those RVD defeated in the end were Mark Henry and Ryback. He's no stranger to WWE championship gold, and will look to add the US title to his list of accolades.
