Why waste time? The Coronavirus has changed the way the wrestling world works and things have been all over the place as a result. The biggest change has been the lack of having large numbers of the fans in attendance, though things seem to be starting to roll back to normal. WWE is getting back in the swing of things, and now we might have a goal in sight.
According to the WrestleVotes Twitter account, WWE is targeting Summerslam as their official return to regular touring. There is no specific date on when this could be taking place, but there is a chance that the show could be taking place than its usual date of mid to late August. It is not clear where the show will take place, but three or four locations are on the table.
Since March 2020, WWE has only run two events with a significant number of fans in attendance, with both nights of WrestleMania 37 having between twenty and twenty five thousand live fans. Following the shows, the company has since returned to the Thunderdome, this time in the Yuengling Center, still with only the digital fans serving as an audience.
WWE is looking to have SummerSlam be the official kickoff as a “return to touring.” With that said, if things work out a certain way, the PPV might be even earlier than usual this year. I’ve heard 3 to 4 locations are on the table, with 1 having better odds than the others ?

Fans can make a big difference. Check out what they can do, plus what Summerslam can look like:
Opinion: Summerslam has seemed to be the goal for a very long time now and it should be interesting to see where things go from here. Granted there is almost no way to find out how well things are going to go with the Coronavirus restrictions until then, but it seems to be heading in the right direction. Hopefully it works out, but more importantly, hopefully things get better to the point where it can work out.
