WWE SummerSlam is the second most significant event in the world wrestling entertainment industry coming after WrestleMania. So the 6 hour show on August 11 is set to be a blockbuster hit, and by headlining with Seth Rollins versus one time UFC champion Brock Lesnar, WWE intends to make it a blockbuster. However, for the first time in two decades, WWE is getting competition as their rival AEW is giving its primetime slot to TNT this year. Although this only improves the chances of this SummerSlam becoming even more successful.
Some other main matches being held are Kofi Kingston defending his WWE Championship title against “The Viper” Randy Orton and Ricochet challenge against AJ Styles for the United States Championship. Wrestler Goldberg is ready to combat against Dolph Ziggler while the fan-favorite Roman Reigns will face off against Daniel Bryan.
When does it start?
The event is set to take place in Toronto, Canada on August 11, Sunday. The event will start at 4 pm PT and 7 pm ET. However, the fans in the UK will have to stay up late as the telecast there will begin on Monday Midnight (10 pm Sunday kickoff). In Australia, it will be broadcasted at 10 AM AEDT time. The kickoff will also start at 2 pm PT on WWE Network and also on WWE’s official YouTube channel.
