With WWE SummerSlam 2019 only a few days away, it’s time to start asking, “what about next year’s SummerSlam?” It’s how wrestling fans work!
As “first reported by” the Boston Globe, WWE SummerSlam 2020 will happen at the TD Garden in Boston, Mass — home of NBA’s Boston Celtics and NHL’s Boston Bruins — on August 23. It’ll be part of a four-day weekend that’ll include a live episode of Smackdown on Fox on Friday, the also-announced NXT TakeOver: Boston on Saturday, and of course the follow-up Raw on Monday.
Boston’s Mayor Martin J. Walsh:
“On behalf of the City of Boston, we are excited to once again host WWE SummerSlam at TD Garden. SummerSlam attracts fans from all across the world, and we are excited to welcome them all to our city for this hallmark WWE event.”
WWE’s Executive Vice President of Special Events John P. Saboor:
“This news is unprecedented in that it will serve as the first time the WWE will present four consecutive nights of events at TD Garden. We are thrilled to bring WWE’s biggest event of the summer to Boston in 2020. We are grateful to Mayor Walsh, Governor Baker and our partners at TD Garden and look forward to working with them to welcome the world to one of America’s great sports and entertainment cities.”
Me, running a wrestling blog:
“We’ve got a lot of time between now and then to get Sasha Banks on that TakeOver.”
This is the third officially announced event for WWE in 2020, joining Royal Rumble from Minute Maid Park in Houston on January 26, and WrestleMania 36 from Raymond James Stadium in Tampa on April 5. Plan accordingly.
