WWE will present their SummerSlam 2023 premium live event on August 5th at Ford Field in Detroit, Michigan.
According to PWInsider, WWE Hall of Famer The Undertaker will be backstage at this event.
The Phenom doesn’t have his 1 deadMAN SHOW scheduled for the SummerSlam weekend, so he’ll be there just to attend the show with his family. Taker attended SummerSlam 2022 as well.
44,447 Tickets have been sold for this event as of this writing, and it will likely end up becoming the highest grossing non-WrestleMania event ever in the history of Professional Wrestling in USA.
Here’s what the Wrestling Observer reported about it:
“As far as the idea of this giant crowd, I mean, this will probably be legitimately the biggest gross in the United States for a non-WrestleMania show in the history of pro wrestling in the United States since the beginning of time, which is an incredible accomplishment.
But because of All In, it’s almost like anything they announce is almost gonna make some people try to go, ‘Oh, you’re losers. You lost,’ you know, which is ridiculous.
That thing where, like they’ll go in there and I mean, legitimately, if they end up with 50,000 people, which is a giant success, you’re gonna have those people go, you didn’t even sell it out. Like there was a chance of selling out Ford Field, there was no chance of this for SummerSlam.
It’s a disaster because we had all those people with Wembley when I was going, like, man, if they do 30,000 people, they’re doing great. What are you talking about? If they don’t do it, at least, if they don’t sell out, it’s a failure. If they do 70,000, it’s a failure. You know what I mean?
Because that’s the fight that people wanna have, which is ridiculous.”
