WWE recently made an announcement regarding its famous PPV event called SummerSlam. Along with WrestleMania, SummerSlam is one of the most important WWE PPV events. The show usually features the best WWE stars and many titles are defended on it.
SummerSlam has also been the home for some of the best matches in WWE’s history. Many important matches took place at SummerSlam the Attitude Era. Many people still remember those matches and they have cemented their place in the history of professional wrestling.
Journalists were speculating about the status of SummerSlam for a very long time. Many people predicted that SummerSlam will not be held at the TD Garden in Boston, Massachusetts. The coronavirus pandemic is still with us and WWE is forced to hold its shows inside empty arenas.
