The biggest party of the summer is only two weeks away and the WWE has yet to reveal SummerSlam’s location.
According to Wrestling Observer Radio’s Dave Meltzer though, Vince McMahon wants to finally get away from the WWE’s Performance Center and hold the show in a new location with an audience of fans in attendance.
Meltzer believes that will be a beach in Atlantic City, New Jersey.
New Jersey has hosted SummerSlam three times.
SummerSlam 1989 was at the Brendan Byrne Arena and main-evented by Brutus Beefcake and Hulk Hogan versus Randy Savage and Zeus.
In 1997, the event returned to New Jersey. SummerSlam was hosted by the Continental Airlines Arena. The Undertaker faced off against Bret Hart for the WWF World Heavyweight Championship.
The Continental Airlines Arena was the setting again for SummerSlam in 2007. It was there that John Cena and Randy Orton battled for the WWE Championship.
New Jersey also hosted WrestleMania IV and WrestleMania V at the Trump Plaza Hotel and Casino.
Last month, New Jersey allowed casinos to reopen at 25% capacity. Beaches are open there but with new social distancing and swimming rules.
Due to the pandemic the WWE has been forced to hold their events at the WWE Performance Center in Orlando, Florida.
