Nick Khan Reveals Why WWE SummerSlam Is On A Saturday This Year


During a recent appearance on the “Recode Media” podcast, WWE President Nick Khan commented on why SummerSlam is taking place on a Saturday this year, and more. He said,

“Peacock allows us to test a few things, in terms of dates. SummerSlam, that’s on Saturday. Traditionally, we’ve gone on Sunday with pay-per-views. We believe, on the sports calender, there are certain days where there should be sports and there aren’t sports. We believe Saturday is one of those. Traditionally, we had not done that well in terms of box office in Las Vegas. If you speak of the Sunday connotation. No one has ever said, ‘Let’s go to Vegas and go crazy on a Sunday.’ (Vegas) is a Friday and Saturday night town. We thought Saturday would work for us in Vegas and the ticket sales are reflective of that. We have a big audience and a big gate.“
