It was reported yesterday that SummerSlam would not be taking place at the Performance Center, but we didn’t know anything beyond that. Now, WrestleVotes has tweeted the following series of images:

All those moments took place at the Amway Center in Orlando, leading people to believe that’s where SummerSlam will be held.
This has been picked up by Jon Alba, who posted a series of tweets detailing what he’s heard.
Re: @WrestleVotes hinting #WWE may hold #SummerSlam at Amway Center in Orlando: I spoke to a rep today who said “as of now” the arena is closed until next year. But said that if something was finalized recently, word would not come down the ranks as of yet. So def. possible.
Per a source: #WWE is not just exploring #SummerSlam at Amway Center in Orlando, but also utilizing the facility going forward for other events.
It’s worth noting #WWE has saved a ton of money on production costs this year due to not being on the road (per the last quarterly financial report), so if it were a money matter of leasing Amway, that would seem very doable.
If #WWE could secure some sort of lease at Amway Center, it’s not out of the realm to suggest limited fans could eventually return to the tapings given how big the arena is. Plenty of room to social distance. #AEW has been running with some invited guests, distanced.
While the arena has not confirmed publicly yet, multiple sources tell me #WWE will in fact hold #SummerSlam at Amway Center in Orlando, with load-in starting as early as tomorrow. @WrestleVotes
was first to hint at it. To my knowledge, Amway’s first major event since COVID.
