Following WrestleMania 37, reports noted that WWE planned to hold SummerSlam in front of a live crowd. The company has stated publicly they hope to resume touring in the second half of 2021 and The Biggest Party Of The Summer could very well be the first major show since 'Mania to have fans.
In an update, WrestleVotes has noted WWE is looking to have SummerSlam be the kickoff event for resuming touring. The show has traditionally been held in mid-August, but the pay-per-view could take place earlier this year and 3 to 4 locations are being looked at as possible venues.
WrestleVotes tweeted: "WWE is looking to have SummerSlam be the official kickoff as a 'return to touring.' With that said, if things work out a certain way, the PPV might be even earlier than usual this year. I've heard 3 to 4 locations are on the table, with 1 having better odds than the others."
The summer is shaping up to be the time for wrestling promotions to go back on the road. All Elite Wrestling is planning to resume touring in July, according to Jim Ross, and Major League Wrestling has already announced plans to have fans for their July tapings at the 2300 Arena in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.
