WWE has announced, through the Boston Globe, that Boston will be the host city of SummerSlam weekend in 2020. SmackDown on August 21, NXT TakeOver on August 22, SummerSlam on August 23, and Raw closes out the weekend on the 24th
John P. Saboor, the WWE Executive Vice President of Special Events had this to say in regards to the unprecedented nature of WWE producing this much television in Boston consecutively:
“This news is unprecedented in that it will serve as the first time the WWE will present four consecutive nights of events at TD Garden. [Roughly] 50,000 fans from across the nation and throughout the world who will participate in our celebration.”
Saboor would tout the potential of “tens of millions of dollars” in financial gain for Boston.
