WWE SummerSlam won’t happen in Boston this year

WWE’s Biggest Party of the Summer will not take place in Boston as previously planned.

Unfortunately, SummerSlam won’t be happening in Boston as planned this year. City mayor Marty Walsh held a press conference on Friday announcing the cancelation of large-scale gatherings, festivals and parades through at least Labor Day as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Listen to the latest episode of our weekly wrestling podcast, PTW!

This includes July 4th celebrations, the Boston Calling music festival, and, of course, WWE’s biggest party of the summer.

WWE has not outright canceled any pay-per-view events since the pandemic began — WrestleMania 36 happened as scheduled, and Money in the Bank takes place tomorrow. However, these events have severely reduced in scale, and have taken place in the WWE Performance Center in Orlando, Florida, where bizarrely, professional wrestling has been deemed an essential service.

While WWE has not yet commented publicly on the status of SummerSlam, it stands to reason that it will also take place at the WWE Performance Center.
