WWE apparently has a big main event planned for SummerSlam that is likely to sell out Allegiant Stadium in Las Vegas, NV.
As previously noted, John Cena is scheduled to return on the July 16th episode of WWE Friday Night SmackDown. Andrew Zarian from the Mat Men Podcast strongly hinted that Cena would be at SummerSlam in the main event. There were no hints given on who he would be facing but, based on the lack of top faces available for Roman Reigns and based on the fact that WWE needs to sell out a 60,000 seat stadium, one would speculate that perhaps they are looking at Cena vs. Roman Reigns.
Zarian also said that the rumored date for the show, August 22, is not the date for the show. It would make sense for WWE to change the date because Manny Pacquiao will be fighting in Vegas on August 21.
Zarian also said, “it is a very big show. I know the main event. I think it’s a very big main event, especially by today’s WWE standards. It’s a match that we haven’t seen happen too often. I consider this a pretty big main event.”
Zarian said that he did not want to outright say at this time what the main event is but gave a hint: “what you can’t see, you can’t believe.”
Later in the podcast, Zarian said that WWE “very soon has plans for John.”
It was also noted that there will be a guest host for the show.
