As has been the case for some time now, WWE will host a free live streaming pre-show before one of its pay-per-view (PPV) events. Unlike usual, however, the pre-show for SummerSlam, scheduled for this Sun., Aug. 18, 2013, at the Staples Center in Los Angeles, California, will run one hour instead of the typical 30 minutes.
In addition to that hotly anticipated, first-time showdown, the SummerSlam Kickoff will feature exclusive interviews and expert analysis from a panel of WWE Superstars, Divas and Legends. Plus, for the first time ever, the Kickoff event will be available on a number of platforms in Spanish.
Find out when the SummerSlam Kickoff streams live this Sunday, Aug. 18, at 7 ET/4 PT on WWE.com, the WWE App, Yahoo!, YouTube, Facebook, Samsung SMART TVs, Sony PlayStation 3, Twitter, Google+, Pinterest and Pheed!
The "expert analysis from a panel of WWE Superstars, Divas, and Legends" will consist of Shawn Michaels, Booker T, and Natalya, as announced on last night's episode of Monday Night Raw.
Quite the illustrious group for the "biggest party of the summer."
In addition, the pre-show will feature the United States championship match between current titleholder Dean Ambrose and Rob Van Dam, who earned his way onto the show by winning a 20-man battle royal on Raw last night.
As usual, CagesideSeats.com will have the video stream of the pre-show this Sunday night, as well as live, match-by-match coverage of the entire SummerSlam PPV event.
See you then!
