WWE’s SummerSlam PPV is scheduled to take place on August 21st from Allegiant Stadium in Las Vegas, Nevada… or so they hope.
It has previously been reported that with new cases of COVID rises daily, both AEW and WWE have been discussing contingency plans internally in case of more restrictions coming down regarding mass gatherings.
While speaking with sources within WWE, I was told that internally WWE expects that they will have to return to the Performance Center, or another venue for their ThunderDome gimmick within a couple of weeks.
Additionally, sources stated to me that the feeling internally is that SummerSlam can/will be cancelled. The feeling is that the company fully expects that they will not be on the road in four weeks time, as there is concern about “how they will be able to proceed in a non-contained environment.”
Currently the belief within WWE is that they do not expect another round of lockdowns, but are fully anticipating bans on mass gatherings to potentially come down over the next few weeks.
We will have to continue to monitor the situation, as vaccination rates are becoming stagnant. Meanwhile, more and more of the country is experiencing an uncontrolled spread of the Delta variant of COVID.
We will keep you updated as we hear more about this continually developing situation.
