Backstage News On The ‘Flag Match’ At WWE SummerSlam – The Rules & Some Confusion


Source: The Wrestling Observer

There seems to be some confusion as to what the rules are of the “flag match”
between Rusev and Jack Swagger at this Sunday’s WWE SummerSlam pay-per-view.


According to, the rules are simple, in that the person who captures
the opponent’s flag wins. On RAW last night, however, JBL made reference to the
fact that Rusev might tap out to Swagger during the flag match on Sunday, which
wouldn’t be possible based on the rules.

To complicate things even further, one WWE source who had not read the rules
on claimed that he was of the understanding that whoever scores a pin or
submission in the match wins and has their National Anthem played.
