WWE Announce First Ever 2-Night SummerSlam

Triple H WWE SummerSlam

Minneapolis may have missed out on WrestleMania 41 but WWE has now revealed SummerSlam is heading to the city for a two-night SummerSlam – but not until 2026.

Taking to social media, Triple H announced the news of the first-ever two-night SummerSlam that will take place in the US Bank Stadium on August 1st and 2nd 2026, writing:

The Biggest Event of the Summer is getting even bigger. The first-ever two-night #SummerSlam comes to @usbankstadium in Minneapolis, MN on August 1-2, 2026.

Minneapolis had been a front-runner to host WrestleMania 41 but WWE ultimately decided to hold that event in Las Vegas, Nevada on April 19th and 20th 2025.

Logan Paul announced that 2024’s SummerSlam will take place in Cleveland, Ohio but there has been no mention where the event will take place in 2025. WWE is planning on expanding its deal with Saudi Arabia and the Kingdom is reportedly after one of WWE’s bigger shows but whether SummerSlam would take place there remains to be seen.

Minneapolis Thrilled By WWE SummerSlam Deal

A full press release issued by WWE touted the two-night SummerSlam with many Minnesota stakeholders seemingly thrilled by the news:

STAMFORD, Conn., May 23, 2024 – WWE, part of TKO Group Holdings, in partnership with Minnesota Sports and Events (MNSE), today announced that Minneapolis will host WWE SummerSlam over two nights on Saturday, August 1, and Sunday, August 2, 2026, at U.S. Bank Stadium.

The 2026 edition of SummerSlam will be the first Premium Live Event in Minneapolis since TLC: Tables, Ladders and Chairs in 2019 and will mark the first time WWE will host a stadium event in the city. In addition to the massive two-night event, WWE and MNSE will deliver a host of fan and community events in the days leading up to and after SummerSlam.

“U.S. Bank Stadium is an absolutely world-class venue, situated in a city with rich wrestling history and an amazing fan base,” said Chris Legentil, WWE EVP, Talent Relations & Head of Communications. “We’re excited to bring two nights of SummerSlam to Minneapolis in 2026.”

“U.S. Bank Stadium is honored to host WWE’s SummerSlam on Minnesota’s biggest stage in 2026,” said Michael Vekich, Chair of the Minnesota Sports Facilities Authority. “We look forward to providing a warm welcome and best-in-class experience at U.S. Bank Stadium for WWE Superstars, staff, fans, and guests.”

“We are thrilled to welcome the WWE Universe to Minnesota for SummerSlam,” said Wendy Blackshaw, President and CEO of Minnesota Sports and Events. “We will make this summertime wrestling extravaganza accessible for fans of all ages. Through a variety of festivities and ancillary events in the Twin Cities and affordable tickets to the main events at U.S. Bank Stadium, this will be a SummerSlam for all.”

U.S. Bank Stadium, the home of the Minnesota Vikings, is a state-of-the-art indoor facility in the heart of Minneapolis which opened in 2016. The stadium has hosted several high-profile events such as Super Bowl LII (2018) and the NCAA Men’s Final Four (2019). In 2023, The Athletic named U.S. Bank Stadium the NFL’s top venue.

The announcement comes on the heels of a record-breaking ticket on-sale event for this year’s SummerSlam which will take place at Cleveland Browns Stadium on Saturday, August 3. In 2023, SummerSlam at Ford Field in Detroit set a gate record for any non-WrestleMania event with $8.5 million, which has since been surpassed by the 2024 Royal Rumble in January.
