SummerSlam takes place in less than three weeks, but WWE has yet to announce where the summer spectacular will take place.
Most of WWE’s pay-per-views have taken place at the Performance Center in Orlando, FL due to the COVID-19 pandemic. There have been rumors that WWE is looking to hold SummerSlam outside of Florida. The North East United States has been discussed as a host region.
On the latest episode of Wrestling Observer Radio, Dave Meltzer addressed the chatter about SummerSlam’s host venue. Meltzer says that a beach in Atlantic City, New Jersey is being discussed. Vince McMahon is hoping to achieve a “different look” for SummerSlam. Additionally, the WWE boss is pushing to have at least some fans in attendance.
With such a short lead-up time to the pay-per-view, expect the location to be finalized very soon.
