WWE has released the promotional material for this year’s SummerSlam pay-per-view event and the shows that will be taking place during this weekend.
By looking at it, there are two names absent from the poster, which are Dean Ambrose and Raw Women’s Champion Ronda Rousey. Check it out here:
Tickets for SummerSlam weekend go on sale this Friday. The SummerSlam event takes place on Sunday, August 11th from Toronto, Canada at the Scotiabank Arena. The sports entertainment company will also hold an NXT Takeover event, Raw and SmackDown Live during this weekend at the same venue.
It’s been rumored that Rousey will be finishing up her current run with the WWE after defending her title against Charlotte Flair and Becky Lynch in a Triple Threat Match at WrestleMania 35 next month. It should be noted that she still has years left on her contract so while she likely serves as an ambassador for the company while away from in-ring competition, she could always come back to wrestle down the line.
On the flip side, Ambrose is slated to depart from the WWE in April once his contract expires. It’s always possible that WWE and Ambrose come to an agreement on a new deal before he’s set to leave.
