— Former WWE talent Paul Bearer made a surprise appearance at Saturday night’s WWE RAW house show in Biloxi, Mississippi. Bearer cut a promo on the Triple H vs. Brock Lesnar match at SummerSlam and explained why both men were dangerous. During the promo, he was interrupted by Heath Slater, who accused Bearer of stealing his spotlight. He went on to say that he isn’t a wrestler but knew someone in the back who would be glad to fight him. With that being said, Ryback came out and squashed Slater in less than a minute.
