Keep your schedule open. The Coronavirus has changed the way WWE works in a huge way and that is likely to be the case for a long time to come. There are only so many options for the company to pick from at the moment and that makes for some interesting directions. The company has been stuck at the Performance Center for a long time now and it seems that they are going to be there for the time being. It turns out they might even be there more often.
One of the strangest sights in WWE this year was WrestleMania 36 taking place at the Performance Center in front of no fans. There was something so bizarre about the biggest show of the year looking more like a glorified dress rehearsal and having almost no visual differences from Monday Night Raw. With WrestleMania far in the rear view though, things are likely to be happening again.
According to Sean Ross Sapp of Fightful.com, WWE is discussing another WWE Network special at the Performance Center for the weekend after Summerslam. There is no word on what the special would be, though it is not clear when NXT would be running its regular Summerslam weekend Takeover special. WWE has not yet officially announced anything after Extreme Rules on July 19, though Summerslam is expected to be at the Performance Center as well.
According to PWInsider, WWE Summerslam will take place at the WWE PC. I've been told in recent weeks there was also talk of a WWE Network special the following weekend, but I don't know the status of that now.

The Performance Center has hosted some good stuff. Check out a few of its moments:
Opinion: I would assume that this is going to be the delayed Hall of Fame ceremony from WrestleMania weekend. It has been rumored to take place around Summerslam and I can’t imagine a situation where WWE feels the need to have another wrestling show just a week after their second biggest show of the year. Do what makes sense here and let the Hall of Fame have their night that they were going to have back in April. It’s the most logical way to do things under the current circumstances.
What do you think the special will be? When will WWE leave the Performance Center? Let us know in the comments below.
