Toronto gets SummerSlam in 2019

SummerSlam is moving away from Brooklyn for the first time in four years and is going up north to Toronto, Canada.

The announcement, made by ET Canada, will see the four-day SummerSlam weekend taking place at the Scotiabank Arena. The festivities will kick off on Saturday, August 10 with NXT Takeover, SummerSlam on August 11, Raw on August 12, and Smackdown on August 13.

“We are thrilled to bring WWE’s biggest event of the summer back to Toronto,” said John Saboor, WWE executive vice-president, special events, in a statement. “We look forward to working with our partners at Tourism Toronto and Maple Leaf Sports & Entertainment to build a blueprint that welcomes our global fan base to the great city of Toronto.”

WWE will also host a number of activities in the city, including the interactive SummerSlam Axxess fan festival at the Metro Toronto Convention Centre.

The last time Toronto hosted SummerSlam was in 2004.
