WWE on Thursday confirmed that their August SummerSlam pay-per-view event will not be taking place in Boston, Massachusetts’ TD Garden.
Below is the full statement from the company confirming the news.
In coordination with our local partners, government officials and TD Garden, WWE’s SummerSlam and related events will no longer take place in Boston. Refunds are available at the original point of purchase. We are grateful to the city of Boston for their longstanding partnership and look forward to holding WWE events at TD Garden in the future.
SummerSlam will stream live on Sunday, August 23, at 7 p.m. ET on WWE Network, and information regarding a new location for the event is forthcoming.
WWE had been hopeful of doing the event with fans or at least not having to move locations, but COVID-19 gathering restrictions implemented by Boston mayor Marty Walsh made that virtually impossible.
