As for special guests, last year’s host Jon Stewart WILL RETURN THIS YEAR after his shocking interference in John Cena’s match against Seth Rollins in 2015. Seth went on to win the titles of WWE champion and United States Champion, but he’s still thirsty for blood! Now, Seth will be stepping into the ring against Fin Balor in a singles match for the WWE Universal Championship. Last year’s main event featured Brock Lesnar and The Undertaker.
As always, SummerSlam will be held at Barclay’s Center, in Brooklyn, New York, and is predicted to draw a crowd of roughly 15,000 people! The event lasts about four hours, so be sure to order all the spicy chicken wings and thick-crusted pizza you can handle. An event like this is NOT for the weak. As for the ladies, there are some badass women competing this year, too! One match we’re most excited about is returning champion Sasha versus Charlotte. You might remember them from 2015’s “Diva Revolution” match. Either way, they’re predicted to steal the show right out from under their male competitors! GAME ON!
