It looks like SummerSlam is moving to Saturday

SummerSlam WWE

WWE is returning to the road with live events in July, including Money in the Bank 2021. Right after that comes the annual SummerSlam event in August.

After initial rumors suggested SummerSlam might take place earlier on the calendar than it usually does, the official date was reported to be Sunday, Aug. 22. There was nothing abnormal at all about SummerSlam taking place on a Sunday night in the back half of August.

It now sounds like that date for SummerSlam is not accurate, according to Mat Men’s Andrew Zarian:

“According to a very reliable source SummerSlam will take place on Saturday 8/21 in Vegas. This source has been a home run with a few things regarding SummerSlam and I’m confident he is correct.”

Zarian’s claim was backed up by the WrestleVotes:

“The rumors of SummerSlam from Las Vegas taking place outside of a Sunday are correct according to a source. Hearing that internally the show is listed for Saturday night 8/21.”

As far as the location for SummerSlam 2021 is concerned, the most recent rumors suggest Allegiant Stadium near Las Vegas, Nevada, is the leading candidate to host the event.

What do you think about the biggest party of the summer taking place on a Saturday night, Cagesiders?
