In recent weeks, we had talked about the willingness of the WWE leaders to organize (according to the initial plans) the pay-per-view of SummerSlam in Boston and Vince McMahon would have expressed desire to play the competition with the crowd but the situation seems to have precipitated in the last hours.
The mayor of Boston said that no events will take place in the city of Boston until September 7th and SummerSlam is scheduled for August 23th instead. The Boston solution seems now out of WWE's plans and Vince McMahon, as reported by the Wrestling Observer newsletter, is looking for another host city.
Among the possible choices are in particular Arizona, Oklahoma, Georgia and even Florida. Marty Walsh has officially ended WWE's hopes with these strong statements: "There will be no events with fans at Fenway Park in July and even in August.
The truth is that the situation is still complicated and it is difficult to go back to living with this virus immediately. In fact I believe that there will not be a vaccine shortly At the moment the priority is health and saving lives.
" We can almost say with certainty that WWE SummerSlam will be played on the scheduled dates, but all this will not be in Boston. SummerSlam is an annual pay-per-view, produced every August by WWE since 1988. Dubbed "The Biggest Party of the Summer,"it is one of the promotion's original four pay-per-views, along with WrestleMania, Royal Rumble, and Survivor Series, dubbed the "Big Four"
It is considered WWE's second biggest event of the year behind WrestleMania. 2020 will be the thirty-third event in the SummerSlam chronology and feature wrestlers from the Raw and SmackDown brands.
