We’ve been hearing rumors and reports about this all week, but this morning (May 21) WWE made it official.

In a couple of months, the company will embark on 25 city summer tour, starting with July 16’s SmackDown in Houston’s Toyota Center. That starts a three-show, four-day stretch in Texas, which includes the Money in the Bank PPV on July 18 at Dickies Arena in Fort Worth & Raw the following night in Dallas at Americans Airline Center.

Thus far, we haven’t heard about capacity limits at any of these venues. But tickets go on sale next Wednesday (May 26) at 11 a.m. ET, so we’ll find out if there are any then - if not sooner.

More cities, venues, and ticket on-sale dates will follow. The location of SummerSlam, said to be Las Vegas’ new Allegiant Stadium, would figure to be part of the next announcement.

Excited to hear, and possibly be a part of, the roar of the crowd again, scripted fight fans?
