WWE SmackDown Live Results: Who Attacked Roman Reigns?

Tonight is the final SmackDown Live before this year's SummerSlam and feuds on the blue brand will push forward toward Sunday, including the mystery as to who Roman Reigns' attacker is.

The last two weeks saw Roman Reigns as a victim of an accident involving scaffolding and someone trying to hit him with a car. It's unclear who is trying to take out the Big Dog, but longtime rival Samoa Joe is the prime suspect. However, on this week's Monday Night RAW, he was staring down Roman when the car almost hit the former Universal Champion.

While Joe seems to be innocent, who will want to hurt Roman just days before SummerSlam?

Kevin Owens is set to take on Shane McMahon for the soul of SmackDown Live, but before their match Shane will be KO's guest on the Kevin Owens Show. KO will have to quit the company if he loses on Sunday, so the stakes are high for the prize fighter, but will the self-proclaimed "best in the world" Shane McMahon do anything to make sure he is the victor?

WWE Champion Kofi Kingston challenged Randy Orton to a match at SummerSlam, which The Viper accepted. Last week, Orton explained in a video package why he believes Kingston isn't a legitimate champion and isn't ready to hold the mantle. Tonight, Kofi will respond to Orton's words in a sit down interview. What will the champion have to say just days before SummerSlam?

Trish Stratus is returning to the ring this Sunday to take on Charlotte Flair. Stratus was goaded into a match with Flair after she claimed she was the best female wrestler in any generation and that Trish should simply go back to being a mother.

Stratus looks to prove Charlotte wrong and cement her legacy as one of, if not the, best women's WWE superstar ever.

A lot is expected to happen on SmackDown Live tonight, here's everything that went down on the August 6 episode.
