• WWE Officials Reportedly Worried About SummerSlam 2021 Being Cancelled

SummerSlam 2021 is currently scheduled to take place later this month on August 21 at the Allegiant Stadium in Paradise, Nevada.

According to a report from Bodyslam, WWE officials are worried that SummerSlam 2021 might get cancelled due to the COVID-19 situation.

WWE Officials think that mandates against large gatherings will result in SummerSlam not taking place at the Allegiant stadium.

Internal belief in WWE is that they’ll have to move back to the Performance Center, or set up the ThunderDome in an arena again within a couple of weeks.

Bodyslam’s source is reporting the following:

“SummerSlam can/will be cancelled. Additionally, the thought is that the company fully expects that they will not be on the road in 4 weeks time.”

The following matches have been announced so far for SummerSlam 2021:

Universal Championship Match: Roman Reigns (c) vs. John Cena

WWE Championship Match: Bobby Lashley (c) vs. Goldberg

RAW Women’s Championship Match: Nikki A.S.H. (c) vs. Charlotte Flair vs. Rhea Ripley
