This could shake things up a bit. The biggest story going at the moment is of course the Coronavirus pandemic, which is still changing various aspects of everyone’s day to day lives. That is the case with the wrestling industry as well and it seems likely to be the case for a long time to come. It seems that we are going to see a big adjustment to one of the biggest shows of the year.

The official website of Allegiant Stadium, the home of Summerslam 2021, has issued a statement saying that everyone attending any upcoming events, including Summerslam, must wear a mask. There is currently no vaccination requirement for the show, though that may change in the future. This comes as WWE is rumored to be worried about Summerslam possibly being canceled due to a potential ban on mass gatherings. Summerslam is scheduled to take place on August 21.

WWE knows a thing or two about masks. Check out some looks at various masks over the years:

Exclusive Mask Collection - Hunico - Superstar Toyz Episode 7

FULL-LENGTH MATCH - SmackDown - Sin Cara vs. Sin Cara - Mask vs. Mask Match

Meet Rey Mysterio's mask creator: Making WWE, May 5, 2020

Opinion: Right now, a mask mandate being the worst thing the show has to deal with would be a huge relief. The situation is changing in a hurry and I’m not sure how this is all going to shake out. There is a real chance that the show will have to be moved elsewhere, but hopefully everything can take place. If WWE can get through Summerslam, they can figure things out from there, but holding it in a small venue or with no people could be a disaster.

What does this change? Will the show take place as scheduled? Let us know in the comments below.
