WWE SummerSlam 2021: How To Watch, Start Time and Full Match Card
The news has been officially confirmed this weekend that WWE SummerSlam 2021 will indeed emanate from the Allegiant Stadium in Las Vegas, Nevada on Saturday, August 21st.
The day is a break from tradition for WWE, who routinely air their PPV events on Sundays. This untraditional date placement also means the event will take place on the same day as the big Manny Pacquiao vs Errol Spence Jr fight from the MGM Grand.
When set up for a wrestling event, it is believed the Allegiant Stadium, relatively new home of the NFL’s recently relocated Vegas Raiders (formerly of Oakland, California) can hold up to 72,000 people. However, with Vegas being a historically tough town for wrestling to draw, it will be interesting to see how Vince McMahon and co perform at the box office in the city. Will there be enough fan interest to sell out WWE SummerSlam 2021 after just over a month back on the road? Will the same hunger still be there in the same way it was for WrestleMania in April?
Anyway, with just over two months to go until bell time at the Hottest Event of The Summer, here’s everything you need to know about the show so far.
WHEN IS SUMMERSLAM 2O21?
As previously mentioned, WWE SummerSlam 2021 will take place on Saturday 21st August, with a start time of 1am for those of us in the United Kingdom.
HOW CAN YOU WATCH SUMMERSLAM 2021?
First things first, before bell time on the main card, the official WWE SummerSlam 2021 pre-show will be available on the WWE Network (Peacock if you’re in the US), WWE.com, the WWE app, Twitter, Facebook, YouTube and Twitch at 12am.
As for the main show, the aforementioned WWE Network/Peacock is your best bet, but if you aren’t yet subscribed, you can also hit up BT Box Office.
WHAT MATCHES ARE ON THE SUMMERSLAM 2021 CARD?
With over two months to go until the event, nothing has been booked for this year’s extravaganza in Vegas, although a John Cena return is heavily rumoured, with the former Doctor of Thuganomics tipped for a Universal Title showdown against Roman Reigns in the main event.
Let’s hope for a full house on August 21st in Sin City and for a show that is more than worth the wait.
