SummerSlam Expands to Two-Nights in 2026

Earlier today, WWE sent a press release announcing the date and location for SummerSlam’26.  That’s correct, I said SummerSlam’26!  It was just a few months ago that the company announced this year’s summer extravaganza will originate from the Cleveland Browns Stadium in Cleveland, Ohio and we don’t even know where and when next year’s SummerSlam will take place at.

Not only did we learn today that WWE SummerSlam’26 will originate live from the U.S. Bank Stadium in Minneapolis, Minnesota but we also learned that the event will take place on August 1st and 2nd.  That’s right, SummerSlam will be a two-night extravaganza just like WrestleMania!

“We are thrilled to welcome the WWE Universe to Minnesota for SummerSlam.  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.”

– Wendy Blackshaw
President and CEO of Minnesota Sports and Events

The last time the Twin Cities hosted a WWE Premium Live Event was in 2019 for TLC: Tables, Ladders and ChairsSummerSlam’26 will be the first stadium event for the WWE in Minneapolis.
