Prior to today’s Belmont Stakes horse race on NBC, WWE confirmed that SummerSlam will take place at Allegiant Stadium in Las Vegas on Saturday, August 21. This is a brand new stadium that hosts the NFL’s Las Vegas Raiders.
If all tickets are sold, the venue could host 72,000 fans for WWE. Of course, that may be a tough task as the huge Manny Pacquiao vs Errol Spence Jr. boxing fight will also be taking place in Las Vegas that same night. It should also be noted that Las Vegas has traditionally not been a hot market for pro wrestling.
WWE just announced on NBC before the Belmont Stakes that SummerSlam will take place Saturday, August 21 in Las Vegas at Allegiant Stadium, the new $1.9 billion home of the Las Vegas Raiders. The event is expected to draw a sellout crowd of around 72,000 fans. pic.twitter.com/oO9HuH8ewx
