A new report has suggested that Music City might be in for a repeat with WWE considering bringing SummerSlam back to Nashville in 2023.
With WWE pushing forward with stadium shows for more of their premium live events, SummerSlam in 2022 was held in Nissan Stadium in Nashville, Tennessee. Over 48,000 fans were on had to witness The Biggest Party of the Summer as Roman Reigns and Brock Lesnar clashed one last time in the main event.
Reigns and Lesnar competed for the Unified WWE Universal Championship in a Last Man Standing match with Reigns coming out on top, with more than a little help from The Usos. The headlines were grabbed, however, by The Beast Incarnate who upended the ring with a front loader tractor that he drove to the ring.
With the event proving to be a success, WrestleVotes have reported that Nashville is in the running to host SummerSlam once again for the second year in a row:
“Source states WWE was beyond thrilled with how Nashville turned out as the host city for SummerSlam a few weeks back. The city is on the short list to host the event again next year. Decision expected early ‘23.”
SummerSlam has a history of being held in the same location annually in recent years. Between 2009 and 2014, the event was held in the Staples Center in Los Angeles, California before the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York, took over as the host of the event between 2015 and 2018.
