- Rosa Mendes returned at SummerSlam as she was among the WWE Divas joining in multi-platinum recording artist Kevin Rudolf's performance of the pay-per-view theme song, "Don't Give Up," live at STAPLES Center in Los Angeles, California.
Following a flight from Las Vegas, Nevada to San Antonio, Texas on August 5, Mendes, whose real name is Milena Roucka, contacted the San Antonio Police Department to file battery charges against boyfriend and former WWE talent Steven Slocum for an apparent domestic issue that took place prior to her flight. Police on the scene took photos of Roucka's body, which showed scratches and bruising from the incident. Roucka was absent from Raw the following night and was presumably given time off to recover from the ordeal.
- The announced attendance for WWE's twenty-fifth annual SummerSlam at the STAPLES Center in Los Angeles, California was 17,482.
- A fan's sign reading "AW should be here" was held up during the main event of SummerSlam and immediately confiscated by a WWE production staffer.
