Found August 18, 2013 on AllWrestlingNews.com:
- Tonight’s episode of WWE Total Divas will go up against the final hour of the SummerSlam pay-per-view. The official preview reads like this: “Nikki is insecure about her weight; Ariane considers getting breast implants; Natalya wants more romance from her fiancé, TJ.” - Both Randy Orton and Triple H are booked to have key storyline influences on tonight’s Daniel Bryan vs. John Cena match for the WWE Title at SummerSlam. Tonight’s match is expected to be the kickoff for WWE’s big WrestleMania XXX angle with the McMahon family. Triple H being added as special referee is not because officials think Bryan doesn’t have enough star power and they need Triple H there, it’s quite the opposite. Triple H was added to the match because this is a high profile title match, the biggest since WrestleMania, and the right spot for the angle to really get going with the McMahons.
