WWE are set to host their WWE SummerSlam 2021 PPV event from Las Vegas on August 21st. According to a recent report from Bodyslam.net, the company are concerned that they may have to cancel the upcoming megashow.
Apparently, the internal expectation within WWE is ‘that they will have to return to the Performance Center, or another venue for their ThunderDome gimmick within a couple of weeks.’
BodySlam.Net also reported that WWE staff believe that ‘SummerSlam can/will be cancelled.’ Additionally, the thought is that ‘the company fully expects that they will not be on the road in four weeks time.’
Of course, with the pandemic still causing chaos in terms of gatherings across the globe, WWE may have to look at the Thunderdome as their home AGAIN at some point in the near future.
SummerSlam being ‘cancelled?’
As of right now WWE has planned some major matches to be happening at the SummerSlam event, hoping that it will be the ‘WrestleMania of 2021.’
There’s a very good chance that we wouldn’t have seen John Cena vs Roman Reigns or Bobby Lashley vs Goldberg if the Thunderdome was still in operation without live fans.
There are reports that contradict what BodySlam have said. WrestleVotes recently noted thatÂ WWEÂ is still planning on holding the pay-per-view at Allegiant Stadium, with the original plans remaining “on track”
“Source says SummerSlam happening at Allegiant Stadium is still the plan” WrestleVotes tweeted. “With the event being just 2 weeks out. WWE has had conversations with the city and venue, and as of this very moment, all things remain on track.”
