Shinsuke Nakamura and Finn Balor to make their debut in Madison Square Garden

In an effort to stack up the card to boost ticket sales, WWE Smackdown Live Superstar Shinsuke Nakamura will be making his debut in Madison Square Garden at the live event on July 7. They are also advertising a Smackdown Live match between AJ Styles and Kevin Owens. Originally, Roman Reigns was supposed to face Braun Strowman on this show.

This show is billed as being part of the WWE SummerSlam Heatwave Tour.

Here is the updated card:

Roman Reigns vs. Bray Wyatt – this being hyped as their first meeting in MSG.

United States Championship
Kevin Owens (Champion) vs. AJ Styles

Raw Tag Team Championship
The Hardy Boyz vs. Sheamus & Cesaro

Seth Rollins vs. Samoa Joe

Shinsuke Nakamura vs. Dolph Ziggler

Finn Balor will also make his MSG debut against Dolph Ziggler

WWE Cruiserweight Championship
Neville (Champion) vs. Austin Aries

Bayley, Sasha Banks and Micke James vs. Alexa Bliss, Nia Jax and Alicia Fox

I find it interesting that although Brock Lensar has more dates on his current contract, he is not advertised for this show. They typically like to include Lesnar on the bigger live events. Instead, Nakamura, Styles and Owens are being brought in as the special attractions.
