– While WWE’s opinion of Matt Hardy has soured in recent weeks, the company remains very high on Edge and plans to continue his push through the PPV. Thus, the match carries far more weight for Matt Hardy, who needs a big performance to secure reasonable television attention after the feud comes to an end.
– Many backstage have been disappointed with WWE’s utilization of Chris Benoit since the recent Draft Lottery; the fact that his Summerslam match generally comes off as “filler” only furthers that frustration. There has been a backstage push to give Chris Benoit the US Title as a way of giving him some sort of direction on TV, but that is not the confirmed PPV outcome.
