We had previously been reporting at The Ringside Roster that Allegiant Stadium in Las Vegas was the companies preferred location for the event. WWE moved things to Saturday to work with the schedule of the arena so the two sides could come to an agreement, although they did scout other locations as a back up plan.
Asuka essentially spilled the news early as well after a post yesterday on Twitter.
Now SummerSlam is set to be held at Allegiant Stadium with live fans. WWE will surely be looking to go all out this year, so there should be a lot of big matches on the card to look forward to.
