A change has been made to a championship match at this coming Sunday’s August 23 WWE SummerSlam pay-per-view at the ThunderDome.
As was confirmed previously Apollo Crews will defend the United States Championship against MVP, but during last night’s Raw an extra stipulation was added.
Last night, Apollo Crews faced MVP’s fellow Hurt Business member Shelton Benjamin with the stipulation that if Crews won, Benjamin and Bobby Lashley would be banned from ringside at SummerSlam.
Crews did win that match, and thus the Hurt Business will be banned from ringside and unable to help MVP in the US Title affair.
The preview for the match on WWE.com as of this writing is as follows, but doesn’t seem to make mention of the additional stipulation:
If The Hurt Business wants to truly start booming, they’ll have to figure out how to stop Apollo Crews first.
Crews will once again face MVP in a United States Title Match at SummerSlam, as the rivalry reaches a boiling point. MVP brazenly declared himself the United States Champion at The Horror Show at WWE Extreme Rules after an attack from Bobby Lashley put Crews out of commission. Flanked by The All Mighty and Shelton Benjamin, MVP was oozing with confidence until Crews defeated the veteran in a United States Championship Match on Raw.
Can Crews keep the upper-hand against MVP and his imposing allies? Or will MVP help usher in a gold rush for The Hurt Business?
