WWE Chairman Vince McMahon is planning this year's SummerSlam to be held on the beach or on a boat.

Regular WWE programming has aired from the company's Performance Centre based in Orlando, Florida since March due to the coronavirus pandemic.

SummerSlam is regarded as one of the 'big four' pay-per-views and McMahon is keen to provide for the 'Biggest Party of the Summer.'

Fightful have suggested that the event could run outdoors while PW Insider say talks have been held regarding the event being on the beach or on a boat.


Bryan Alvarez of Wrestling Observer has also backed up the claims and stated the 74-year-old "wants something wacky for SummerSlam."

The company had originally planned to hold the event at the TD Garden in Boston, Massachusetts on August 23 and were allegedly selling tickets for the show until earlier this month.

Events such as WrestleMania 36 and Money In The Bank have already been held at the Performance Centre with 'cinematic matches' playing a key role.

SummerSlam's main event is currently slated to be Randy Orton facing Drew McIntyre for the WWE Championship.

One match that recently caught fan's attentions was the 'Eye for an Eye' match between Rey Mysterio and Seth Rollins at Extreme Rules.

Rollins achieved victory when he viciously jammed the luchador's eye into the corner of the ring steps.

'The Master of the 619' then rolled around in pain while clutching his 'eye' in his hands.

WWE claimed that Mysterio was rushed to hospital and was set to be treated for a potential globe luxation.

It read: "Medical experts were optimistic that if the optic nerve is not severed and there is not too much strain on the blood vessels and nerves that connect the eye to the rest of the head, there's a chance Mysterio can maintain his vision."

Many had hoped the match would be 'cinematic', with the Boneyard and Firefly Funhouse matches standing out in the empty arena era.

However, the spot resulted in minimal blood and a prop eye was used to sell the injury.

Mysterio hasn't featured on WWE TV since the match and is currently unsigned.
