Originally the two main events scheduled to get a heavy push for SummerSlam were Umaga vs. The Jackass Crew (led by Johnny Knoxville) and WWE champion John Cena vs. Edge. The Cena/Edge match was pulled well before Edge was injured because Triple H wanted the title to go from Cena to Orton.

Joel Simon has re-signed with WWE Films for $500,000 for one year. Simon will also receive a certain percentage from fees and monies that they raised from the first three films.
