Speaking with Detroit News, Sami Zayn expressed early excitement about the event, saying:
"This is a big deal that we're coming, and that it's in Ford Field. I think it's going to be extremely exciting. SummerSlam on its own is already a pretty big deal. And then when you add in Detroit and you add a stadium component to it, all of a sudden it becomes a really big deal. And then everybody gets more excited about it, and that sort of circular pattern goes from fans to performers back to the fans. So there becomes this heightened energy the closer you come to it".
