Last week, WWE officially announced SummerSlam 2020 will not be taking place at the TD Garden in Boston, Massachusetts. The news had been expected for some time, and the company is currently looking for a new location for The Biggest Party Of The Summer.
The pay-per-view could end up taking place in the ocean as Mike Johnson at PWInsider Elite reported WWE is considering running the event outdoors and has discussed moving the show to a beach or a boat. The show could also be broadcast from multiple locations, with some matches taking place on the boat while others would be on the beach. Whether or not SummerSlam 2020 will be taped in Florida is currently unknown.
Bryan Alvarez later noted on Wrestling Observer Live that WWE is considering holding the event outdoors because Vince McMahon doesn't want one of the company's biggest pay-per-views to be just another show "in an empty arena with a bunch of fans wearing masks."
Alvarez said: "I don't think so. I know this, okay, I know Vince wants something wacky for SummerSlam. I know that's probably the wrong word but he doesn't want it to be just another SummerSlam in an empty arena with a bunch of fans wearing masks. He wants to do something different and I'm not sure what that is."
