SummerSlam is coming to the 6 in 2019.
The WWE has reportedly found a new home for their annual SummerSlam PPV, which has been held at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn ever since the 2015 event. As first reported by ET Canada and later confirmed by the WWE, the Scotiabank Arena in Toronto will host all four nights of WWE programming in August of 2019.
Those events include the following dates:
- NXT TakeOver: Saturday, August 10
- SummerSlam: Sunday, August 11
- Monday Night Raw: Monday, August 12
- SmackDown Live: Tuesday, August 13
In addition to those four events, an Axxess fan festival will be held at the Metro Toronto Convention Centre during the lead up to four-day event. The last time the WWE held SummerSlam in Toronto was back in 2004, according to Cageside Seats.
From 1988, when SummerSlam was first introduced at Madison Square Garden in NYC, to 2008, WWE switched up the venue every year. The PPV was held at the Staples Center in Los Angeles from 2009-2014. Since then, the Barclays Center has been the official home of SummerSlam as well as the NXT Takeover event that showcases the company's up and coming talent that isn't on the main roster yet.
The next WWE PPV on the calendar is "Hell In A Cell," which will take place at the AT&T Center in San Antonio, Texas on Sunday, September 16.
