According to Mike Johnson of PWInsider, WWE SummerSlam will take place on Sunday, August 22. The location for this year’s SummerSlam is yet to be finalized. Based on this, WWE Extreme Rules in July will be the last pay-per-view the company runs utilizing the “ThunderDome” format.
WWE’s Chief Financial Officer Kristina Salen recently stated on the Q1 2021 earnings call that WWE hopes to resume full-time touring in the second half of the year. SummerSlam seems like the perfect launching point for the WWE Universe to return on a full-time basis.
Where will WWE hold SummerSlam this year?
The only remaining mystery right now is where WWE will hold this year’s SummerSlam. Fans have received hints from Jon Alba and WrestleVotes on social media regarding its potential location.
Jon Alba confirmed that WWE wants to be out of Florida when they hold SummerSlam in August. A “major venue out west” is being discussed internally for the show, which narrows down the location a bit.
WrestleVotes, who love to drop hints, used the numbers three, four, and one in a recent tweet, in that order. 341 is the phone number area code for the state of California.
While nothing has been confirmed, it looks like WWE SummerSlam will potentially head out west this August.
