One of WWE’s biggest events of the year SummerSlam may see the same fate that WrestleMania witnessed last month. As a result of the ongoing health pandemic in regards to COVID-19, WrestleMania had to be moved to the WWE Performance Center in Orlando, Fla. without an audience. We are also closely approaching two months without fans in attendance with regular televised shows. SummerSlam is set to take place on August 23 in Boston, Mass. at the TD Garden.
The concern of it not happening has been brought up as a result of Mayor Marty Walsh who announced today how the city intends on re-opening as a result of their lockdown measures due to the pandemic. He mentions the following:
Based on this he has stated that the plan is a “healthy re-opening” and that if an event brings a large crowd then they will have to start looking for other alternatives instead.
WWE currently has not commented on its plans at this time. Based on what has previously taken place however with the company the show will most likely still go on at a different location. Their next pay-per-view Money in the Bank takes place this Sunday on May 10. It will have matches at the WWE Performance Center as well as the MITB matches taking place at WWE Headquarters in Stamford, Conn.
