WWE is now beginning to seriously prepare for its next big annual event, which goes by the name of SummerSlam. After the Royal Rumble and Wrestlemania, Summerslam is in fact the third Big Four that awaits the number one company in the world of pro-wrestling and this year will have a decidedly different flavor than all the other McMahon company.
After a full year of pandemic, in fact, WWE has decided that right behind Summerslam, it will return to having the live audience in every weekly show of the federation, with Wrestlemania being just a taste for the WWE Universe and with the Big Four summer which will instead mark the definitive return of the great shows with a lot of public in all the arenas where WWE will return to perform.
As early as July 16th, in fact, WWE will resume staging the various Monday Night Raw and Friday Night Smackdown in front of a real audience with an initial tour of 25 cities, so as to arrive at August 21st, in full shape and in full swing for the great summer Big Four of the McMahon-owned federation.
SummerSlam 2021 will take place at the Allegiant Stadium
According to what was reported in the last few hours by the well-known Mat Men Pro Wrestling podcast, it would seem that WWE has already drawn up a sort of list of huge Superstar to be able to call for the most anticipated event of the summer, with really big names that would already return to the McMahon rings in case of need.
As revealed in one of the latest speeches by the well-known Andrew Zarian, in fact: "WWE has a list of Mega Stars ready for SummerSlam, Brock Lesnar is one of them. I don't know if Brock has already signed a contract with them, as I don't know if they have agreed on the money to give him, I don't know, but the Survivor Series is coming and then we'll get closer to the Royal Rumble as well.
Since he's an attraction, especially now, I think they're going to spend a lot of money, because WWE will have to get all these characters back on all these shows." WWE's SummerSlam 2021 pay-per-view will be one of the first sporting events to be held in front of a capacity crowd.
WWE issued the following statement, in which the company expressed its enthusiasm about having SummerSlam at an NFL stadium for the first time in its history: WWE today announced that SummerSlam will take place from Allegiant Stadium in Las Vegas on Saturday, August 21 at 8 p.m.
