WWE officially confirmed last week that SummerSlam 2021 will be taking place on August 21st from Allegiant Stadium in Las Vegas, NV.
During a recent interview with Las Vegas’ FOX 5, WWE President Nick Khan revealed why the company chose Las Vegas to be the host. He said,
“We know how bad the pandemic hit Las Vegas and the economy there. One of the thoughts we had was to have one of our signature events, SummerSlam, at Allegiant. I don’t believe there have been full fans there yet. We thought a big sell out crowd in Vegas to help stimulate the economy would be the right thing to do with the city.”
Believe it or not, like the Wizard of Oz, Nick Khan is a human being.
