The WWE LIVE SummerSlam Heatwave Tour continues with a “Supershow” in Madison Square Garden (MSG) tonight, but one superstar was removed from a title match scheduled on the card. Austin Aries was originally set to compete against Cruiserweight Champion Neville with the title on the line.
From its website and in an email from The Garden on June 15, Aries was listed for the “Supershow,” which will feature mostly RAW superstars but also SmackDown’s AJ Styles, Kevin Owens, Dolph Ziggler, and Shinsuke Nakamura. For over a month, the promotion has promoted the “Supershow” as the MSG debut of Nakamura and RAW’s Finn Bálor. Aries’ replacement will be Cedric Alexander, which may also be his MSG debut.
