• How Many Tickets Has WWE Sold For SummerSlam 2021 So Far?
WWE’s SummerSlam 2021 pay-per-view will take place at the Allegiant Stadium in the Las Vegas suburb of Paradise, Nevada on August 21st.
It will take place on the same night as Manny Pacquiao vs. Errol Spence Jr. Boxing Match in Las Vegas, but WWE’s PPV will end before this Boxing event begins, so the fans who want to attend both shows can easily do it.
WWE wants to make SummerSlam bigger than this year’s WrestleMania, and Stephanie McMahon has guaranteed a lot of surprises for SummerSlam during a recent interview with Yahoo Finance.
According to the Wrestling Observer, WWE has sold 37,000 tickets so far for SummerSlam 2021. As of this writing, Ticketmaster has listed the capacity for SummerSlam at 41,661.
So it’s almost a guarantee that we’ll have a sold-out crowd at WWE’s biggest event of the summer, and rightfully so, with the returns of multiple legends rumored to take place: John Cena, Edge and Brock Lesnar.
