The ongoing saga of what WWE will do with SummerSlam is a bizarre one. It was reported that Vince McMahon does not want to hold the event at the Performance Center but rather at some location that would allow for spectators. Now, it seems they have hit a snag with those plans.
The highly reputable WrestleVotes Twitter account revealed today that WWE has been unable to find a state willing to host their event. Here is the tweet:
WWE has looked into hosting SummerSlam within the Northeast at an outdoor location w/ limited fans, and as of now, have found no interested states in allowing that to happen.

Sporting events in North America have yet to resume with fans in the stands. The NHL and NBA are playing games in their respective bubbles with no spectators while the MLB is already facing a COVID-19 outbreak with the Miami Marlins. Many places continue to be extremely cautious with gatherings with the total number of cases soaring in the United States.
WWE was originally scheduled to host the event in Boston on August 23. Boston has since said they won’t hold the event at TD Garden, leaving WWE to find another venue.
