WWE confirms SummerSlam no longer taking place in Boston


Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, next month's SummerSlam pay-per-view officially won't be taking place at its originally scheduled location.

WWE posted a statement today confirming that this year's SummerSlam will no longer be taking place in Boston, Massachusetts. It was noted that SummerSlam will still stream live on the WWE Network on Sunday, August 23 and that "information regarding a new location for the event is forthcoming."

"In coordination with our local partners, government officials and TD Garden, WWE’s SummerSlam and related events will no longer take place in Boston. Refunds are available at the original point of purchase. We are grateful to the city of Boston for their longstanding partnership and look forward to holding WWE events at TD Garden in the future," WWE announced.

"SummerSlam will stream live on Sunday, August 23, at 7 p.m. ET on WWE Network, and information regarding a new location for the event is forthcoming."

NXT's next TakeOver special was supposed to take place in Boston on the night before SummerSlam. It will remain on Saturday, August 22 but is no longer being held in Boston. The event is now titled NXT TakeOver XXX.
