Final in-ring WWE PPV appearance for Trish Stratus, and her final wrestling match.

Alexa Bliss and Nikki Cross defended their WWE Woman's Tag Team Championship against The IIconics (Peyton Royce and Billie Kay). They had just won it from the IIconics the previous Monday at Raw from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. This defense also marked the first defense of the WWE Women's Tag Team Championship at a pay per view since WrestleMania and only the fourth defense on television overall since the previous WrestleMania.

The first Summerslam since 2016 to not feature Roman Reigns.

In-ring debut for Bray Wyatt's new character, "The Fiend".
