The Amway Center in Orlando, Florida is being discussed behind-the-scenes in WWE lately as a potential host venue for some of their upcoming shows, specifically and most notably this month’s WWE SummerSlam pay-per-view scheduled for Sunday, August 23, 2020.
WWE appears to have abandoned its attempts to hold this year’s WWE SummerSlam PPV at a venue in the Northeast and instead focusing on a different location (not the Performance Center) within Florida.
Earlier this week, the @WrestleVotes account on Twitter confirmed that the PPV would not be at the PC while PWInsider.com reported that it would be taking place in Florida, stopping short of an exact location.
Jon Alba of @SpecSports360 in the Orlando and Tampa area has added to the speculation by noting that he’s been told WWE is not only looking at Amway Center for their WWE SummerSlam PPV, but for other events moving forward as well.
The venue is currently “closed” until next year due to the Coronavirus, so it’s unclear if it would be an empty arena event again or if fans would be allowed in under strict social distancing rules.
We will keep you updated here at Wrestling-Edge.com as updates regarding this month’s WWE SummerSlam 2020 pay-per-view and other WWE events being held outside the Performance Center continues to surface!
As I noted below, the arena is currently "closed" until next year, which would seemingly mean nothing is on the docket. https://t.co/vwkfPP09c8
