WWE SummerSlam 2021 will be the biggest, most important wrestling show of the year. It could be argued that this will be WWE’s most important show in two decades as they re-emerge from the pandemic forcing them to present their shows without fans for 18 months.

They will be back with a bang in front of 60,000 fans and the biggest SummerSlam crowd since 1992 with a main event fitting for such a stage. The undisputed MVP of WWE’s pandemic era, Roman Reigns will defend his WWE Universal Championship against the biggest star of the modern era, John Cena. Having been absent from television for well over a year, Cena presents Reigns’ biggest title defence yet and genuinely one of WWE’s biggest ever main events.

Fresh off her Money In The Bank match cash in, Nikki A.S.H will defend her Raw Women’s Championship against both Charlotte Flair and Rhea Ripley in a triple threat match.
