• WWE Has To Change Plans For SummerSlam 2020 After Latest Announcement
WWE’s next big 4 PPV is going to be SummerSlam 2020 in August, which is currently scheduled to take place at the TD Garden in Boston, Massachusetts.
However, nothing can be confirmed in the ongoing situation.
As we noted earlier, WWE didn’t have any change of plans regarding the venue of the event. However, the latest announcement from Boston’s Mayor, Marty Walsh, will force WWE to find an alternate venue for the event.
Walsh said that large gatherings like festivals won’t be allowed to take place this summer.
As mentioned in the tweet below, this decision will remain in effect at least until September 7, so SummerSlam will most likely have to be relocated.
I can announce that parades and festivals will not take place this summer in the City of Boston,
up to and including Labor Day on September 7.

Walsh had also mentioned that smaller events would be allowed on a case-to-case basis, so WWE could run small shows in Boston in the future.
