WWE Announces Summerslam 2021's Date As A Saturday For The First Time
WWE is bringing back Summerslam on the road, along with 21 more dates and cities.
WWE announced that Summerslam will take place on August 21. And much like Wrestlemania 37 in April, SummerSlam will have a live audience attending the show. If you can't make it to Summerslam, don't worry, as there is a whole tour of live events you can attend around the US.
The mystery venue, described as a “summer destination location,” will be revealed on June 5 during NBC’s 2021 Belmont Stakes' pre-race show. Tickets to the event will go on sale June 18. Summerslam will stream live, exclusively on Peacock in the United States, and on WWE Network everywhere else.
It was announced last week that the company and its stars will take to the road again after over a year, starting in July with Money In the Bank weekend. The additional set of dates kicks off with Supershow on July 24 at the PPG Paints Arena in Pittsburgh and wraps up with Raw on September 6 at the American Airlines Arena in Miami.

Last year's Summerslam event saw WWE Champion Drew McIntyre retain his title against Randy Orton and The Fiend to capture the Universal Championship from Brawn Strowman in the main event. It's unsure to what capacity these events will be held, but you can expect WWE fans excited to see their favorite stars live once again.
