SummerSlam, the h*ttest wrestling event of the summer is about to return, precisely we could see it live on August 21, 2021, directly from the city of sin, Las Vegas and yes, Saturday instead of Sunday. For the occasion, Stephanie McMahon promised big surprises: "Since Ronda Rousey broke my arm, I suffer from post-traumatic disorders.
I'm not sure you will see me again in the ring soon enough, but I can guarantee you that for Summerslam, there will be a lot of surprises."
The build-up to WWE SummerSlam 2021 has already begun
For the first time in the United States of America, SummerSlam will be available nationwide in cinemas thanks to a new partnership with Iconic Events Releasing.
Here is a piece from the press release: “WWE and Iconic Events Releasing today announced a new partnership that brings Summerslam, the largest WWE event of 2021, to national cinemas for the first time. The event will air Saturday, August 21 at 8 pm ET / 5 pm PT and will be one of the first sporting events to be held in full capacity at the Allegiant Stadium, and the first time to be held in an NFL venue."
And again: "Iconic Events Releasing is proud to be partnering with WWE to bring their incredible brand to cinema from coast to coast," said Iconic CEO Steve Bunnell. "Summerslam is an event that demands to be seen on the big screen, with great sound, in an auditorium filled with enthusiastic fans."
This is really good news because as Steve Bunnell said, Summerslam really deserves to be seen right on a big screen with great sound, especially because with the things they're building and possibly coming, it's going to be truly epic.
We remind you that WWE has also started another partnership for tomorrow's episode of SmackDown, in fact it will make a special episode with a music festival, the most famous rap-themed music in the world. One of the matches almost confirmed for WWE SummerSlam 2021 is Goldberg challenging Bobby Lashley for his WWE Championship.
The WWE Hall of Famer made his return on this week's Monday Night RAW after Lashley defeated Keith Lee. In his typical style, he laid out the challenge to the WWE Champion. While the WWE Universe isn't really happy to see him get yet another title shot, no one can deny that the former Universal Champion is still a huge draw.
