Another title match has been confirmed for WWE SummerSlam, as Sheamus will put the United States Championship on the line against Damian Priest.

The challenge came about on the 9th August edition of Monday Night Raw, where Sheamus won a hard-fought non-title match against Ricochet.

The match wasn’t without incident, as ‘The Celtic Warrior’ took a springboard crossbody from Ricochet which put him through the commentary table.

After coming back to pick up the win, Sheamus was confronted in the ring by Damian Priest, who would go on to win his scheduled match against John Morrison.

Priest then had some choice words for the United States Champion, including calling him a bully, and made the challenge for the hottest show of the summer which was accepted.

This is the fourth title match confirmed for WWE SummerSlam, coming hot of the heels of Bianca Belair vs. Sasha Banks which was added on Friday Night SmackDown.
