Vickie later reappeared at Summer Slam to convince Eddie to put a stop to his war with Mysterio and not to go through with the "Custody of Dominick" ladder match that night.
When that failed, she cost him the match by pushing over the ladder he was on as he was about to win.
After that she held down Eddie on the ground afterwards so he couldn't get up and and attack Mysterio.
