The WWE will hold the 33rd edition of SummerSlam this Sunday, and for the first time, you can watch it live on Pay-Per-View with Sling TV!
Always pushing boundaries, the WWE explored a wide range of potential venues for this years’ event, including — but not limited to — a boat. Ultimately, they decided to keep things in-house, broadcasting the annual Pay-Per-View from “The ThunderDome” (otherwise known as the Amway Center in Orlando, Florida). Additionally, owing to ongoing precautions as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, SummerSlam will be held with only virtual fans in attendance.
However, don’t expect the WWE to cut any corners when it comes to excitement. “I think that when you see the ThunderDome concept, when you see SummerSlam in that environment, I think you’re going to understand why we went in the direction that we did,” WWE Executive Vice President Paul “Triple H” Levesque said in a recent interview with TheWrap. “It’s spectacular. I think it’s different than anything anybody else is doing out there, the level of it,” he added.
