After WWE successfully had live fans in attendance at WrestleMania 37, it was noted that WWE Chairman and CEO Vince McMahon was determined to have live fans at the upcoming SummerSlam PPV, much like they did for the 2020 SummerSlam PPV Event, but the plans for last year's SummerSlam PPV obviously did not happen.
It was previously reported that the company was considering several locations for the 2021 SummerSlam Event, including Phoenix, Arizona or somewhere in the Texas area. It was also said that the promotion is looking to hold the show in an outdoors stadium setting this year, with live fans in the audience, which would make SummerSlam the first show with live fans since WrestleMania 37.
According to a new report by @Wrestlevotes, there is a “hot SummerSlam location rumor” moving around, and it is something that would excite a lot of people. The company has not made a decision yet on the SummerSlam location because details are still being worked out, but it was noted that an announcement will be made some time after June as many cities are starting to lift their COVID-19 restrictions. No other details were provided for now, but it was revealed that Boston is unlikely to be the host city.

Hearing a hot SummerSlam location rumor that would excite a ton of people, but not at liberty to disclose yet. Simply b/c those discussions are still in flux. However, considering many cities are starting to lift restrictions, I wouldn’t expect any announcement prior to June.
