WWE announced today that the live event on July 27 in Nashville, TN will be streamed live on the WWE Network and be dubbed as “Smackville.”
It features two title matches already announced (and also reveals that Finn Balor will likely be back in North America wrestling ahead of SummerSlam) as well as an appearance by Elias and it is likely going to lead to more network specials like this in the future, with the company already testing out the waters with Starrcade earlier this year.
Featured below is the official announcement:
WWE is proud to announce the SMACKVILLE special event, featuring a Triple Threat Match for the WWE Championship and streaming live from Nashville, Tenn. exclusively on the award-winning WWE Network on Saturday, July 27.
The explosive in-ring action will include a main event Triple Threat Match for the WWE Championship in which Kofi Kingston will be challenged by Dolph Ziggler and Samoa Joe. In addition, newly crowned Intercontinental Champion Shinsuke Nakamura will go head-to-head with former titleholder Finn Bálor in a rematch from WWE Extreme Rules. The evening will also feature a special musical performance by Elias.
