As seen on Monday’s Raw, The Big Show made his triumphant return to WWE TV by backing up the face duo of Rob Van Dam and Mark Henry.

Most fans thought the tag team championship match would be added to the SummerSlam card via Friday’s episode of SmackDown, but the WWE has still not announced that Big Show and Mark Henry vs. Seth Rollins and Roman Reigns.
According to F4WOnline via Wrestling Inc., that doesn’t mean the title match won’t come to fruition during the PPV:
While they haven't been announced for a match yet, Big Show, Mark Henry, Seth Rollins and Roman Reigns have been told they are working the SummerSlam pay-per-view on Sunday. According to F4WOnline.com, the current plan is to shoot an angle during the Rob Van Dam vs. Dean Ambrose pre-show match that will lead to either a six-man match on the pay-per-view or at least a WWE Tag Team Title match with Rollins and Reigns vs. Henry and Big Show.
The team of Big Show and Henry is very interesting and one of the most unique tandems the WWE has paired up in a long time. With a lackluster tag division and no real threat to The Shield’s titles, Henry and Big Show have a great chance of coming out victorious.
Rollins and Reigns will likely retain their titles, but this should be an entertaining match.
With RVD working a match with Dean Ambrose and the rest of The Shield looking for a fight, the stage has been set for Big Show and Henry to team up and take on Seth Rollins and Roman Reigns for the tag team titles.
According to Marc Middleton of Wrestling Inc., the match is expected to be announced soon.
This bout will likely be further teased on SmackDown and made official the same night, but the outcome is unclear. The WWE has been pushing The Shield as indestructible forces, but the team of Henry and Big Show could take the straps away Sunday.
The only way that taking the titles off The Shield makes sense would be having the stable align with Vince McMahon as he pursues power of the WWE. Otherwise, a loss to RVD, Henry and Big Show hurts the trio’s credibility.
