Yesterday, it looked like Sasha Banks may have revealed the location for next year’s SummerSlam during Cathy Kelley’s WWE Now show. Banks mentioned Los Angeles at the Staples Center but that is not the case and it may have just been an assumption on her part based on the fact that the event was held there before moving to Brooklyn, NY a few years ago.
WWE is saying that the location has not been announced to anyone and it won’t be Los Angles. PWInsider is reporting that the rumor within WWE is that Toronto will be the location for next year.
If you are wondering why they are leaving Brooklyn, it’s because WrestleMania will be taking place in the New York/New Jersey area and the Takeover show before Mania will be at the Barclays Center and the feeling is that they don’t want to do two big weekends of shows in the same city within the span of a few months. An announcement on next year’s SummerSlam weekend of events could be coming within the next couple of days.
