WWE Summer Slam: What to expect?
- It will be the 34th event under the Summer Slam chronology
- It will be the first time ever that the Summer Slam will air live on a Saturday
- The one thing we can expect is to see titles change hands
WWE Summer Slam is back for another jaw-dropping action night of action and drama. August 21 may prove to be yet another memorable night where the old stars redeem themselves and new stars are born.
It will be the 34th event under the Summer Slam chronology and the first to take place on a Saturday since the 1992 event. It will be the first time ever that the Summer Slam will air live on a Saturday.
What to expect?
One thing we know for sure with WWE is that you expect the unexpected with them. Nobody can really predict what will go down when the bell rings and that is probably the thrill of it.
Having said that, the one thing we can expect is to see titles change hands. A new champion being crowned is one of the best ways to make a show memorable because it creates a moment that can be recalled in future years. This year, like almost every year now, Many championships will be on the line when WWE steps inside Allegiant Stadium, and more than a few of them could find new homes around the waists of other Superstars.
SummerSlam needs marquee matchups, but these are few and far between, especially on Raw. So Raw will continue to take a backseat to SmackDown, which is better creatively and boasts the biggest star in the industry in Roman Reigns.
But this is all true if the event goes forward. If some reports are to be believed, the event might not even go ahead. According to a report by Bodyslam.net, WWE internally expects that they will have to return to the Performance Center or go to another venue with the ThunderDome structure in the next couple of weeks. The rising cases of COVID-19 in the United States could lead to large public gatherings being restricted once again.
