SummerSlam 2021 is one of the WWE’s biggest wrestling events of the year, and it’s set to kick off tonight, live from Vegas.
Like Wrestlemana 37, this event will take place in front of a live audience, this time at Allegiant Stadium in Las Vegas. All attendees will have to wear masks due to the recent uptick in Covid-19 cases, but SummerSlam 2021 will happen in front of a full capacity crowd of more than 40,000 expected fans. Tickets for the event are still available on Vivid Seats, but you can stream the entire program on NBC’s Peacock.
SummerSlam 2021 feature 10 matches, including a Universal Championship bout between Roman Reigns and John Cena; a Triple Threat Match between Nikki A.S.H, Rhea Ripley, and Charlotte Flair; and the SmackDown Tag Team Championship between The Usos and Rey & Dominik Mysterio.
