WWE will be presenting SummerSlam next month from the Performance Center in Orlando, FL.
While no matches have been officially announced, major angles are likely to start following this weekend’s Extreme Rules pay-per-view.
According to Wrestlevotes, creative plans WWE had in place a few months ago have been “torn up. The reasoning behind this major shift is due to Edge’s injury, which played a big part in making this decision.
