WWE will present SummerSlam on Sunday, Aug. 21 from Brooklyn, New York, and the company’s second-biggest pay-per-view of the year includes a number of headline matches that should make for a great show.
The entire thing kicks off at 5 p.m. ET as WWE presents a two-hour kickoff show prior to the event itself. SummerSlam will begin at 7 p.m. ET and run for four hours. WWE needs that long of a show considering the card it has put together, which includes every single championship being defended and none of those matches looking like they will be the show’s main event.
It’s unknown which match will close the show. Seth Rollins vs. Finn Balor might be the main event, since the winner will become the first ever WWE Universal Champion. Brock Lesnar is WWE’s biggest star, so he could potentially close the show against Randy Orton. The WWE World Championship match traditionally ends PPVs, but that doesn’t seem likely on Sunday since the belt now belongs to the SmackDown brand.
