There’s still time. One of the biggest changes in wrestling, if not the biggest change, to come from the Coronavirus pandemic is the lack of fans in the arenas. Wrestling shows have not been able to have fans inside and it changes the entire feeling of the shows. That is certainly the case for WWE, which has held most of their events at the Performance Center in Orlando Florida. This includes WrestleMania 36, but things might be changing a bit for the next major pay per view.
We are less than three weeks away from Summerslam, which is causing some bad flashbacks to how weird WrestleMania really was. The show was held in front of no fans at the Performance Center, which was certainly unique at the time. However, the last four plus months have had shows that looked almost identical. Something had to change, and now that might be the case for Summerslam.
According to the WrestleVotes Twitter account, Summerslam will not be held at the Performance Center, but there will be no fans in attendance. According to PWInsider.com, the show will be held somewhere in Florida and the idea of a show in Atlantic City, New Jersey has been dropped. There is no word on where the show will take place in Florida. WWE has not made any announcement on the location.
Good news, Bad news:
SummerSlam will not take place in the PC.
However, no fans will be in attendance.
Source still unsure on exact location, as the northeast possibility is now said to be iffy at best.

WWE can go to some strange places. Check out where some matches have taken place:
Opinion: I’m not sure where WWE is holding the show but holding it anywhere outside of the Performance Center is a good idea. Just for the sake of offering a fresh visual is a good thing at this point as there is little point to doing the same thing over and over again. Mix things up a bit and let Summerslam feel special. I’m not sure why it has taken this long for a company that is so rich, as you can do some things for a pretty cheap price.
Where do you want to see Summerslam take place? Where will it take place? Let us know in the comments below.
