SummerSlam promises to be WWE’s biggest event of the summer as the wrestling universe returns home for another superstar show.
Vince McMahon’s company has hosted high-end events in Puerto Rico, Saudi Arabia and even London in an action-packed 2023.
But WWE is heading home to mainland North America for its second biggest show of the year with the return of SummerSlam.
“The Biggest Party of the Summer” has returned to its traditional August slot after the previous year became the one and only to be held in July.

SummerSlam: What was said?
During an exclusive interview with talkSPORT’s TalkWRESTLING podcastAJ Styles listed his five favorite opponents.
He said: “Seth Rollins is excellent, there’s no doubt about it.
“John Cena is one of the guys I love being in the ring with.
“Samoa Joe is another – amazing talent, but I guarantee you throw me in there with Christopher Daniels, we’re going to tear down the house too.
“So that leaves one more and there are several guys you can’t go wrong with – Rey Mysterio is definitely one of those guys.
“I look at Rey and I’m like, ‘I want to be like that guy! I want to do what he does,’ because he started wrestling at such a young age that you don’t realize he doesn’t. He’s only a few years older than me, but he was one of those guys who pioneered Lucha Libre but brought it to the American style and made it all work.
“He is definitely one of a kind!”
