It’s the extravaganza of the summer from the world of professional wrestling, WWE SummerSlam 2019 is upon us!
Not considering the shit job Smackdown did this week as a go-home show for the PPV this looks like a pretty decent card. The usual mix of full and part-timers, a returning star (Trish Stratus), and some exciting matches like Finn and Bray to look forward too.
What time does WWE SummerSlam 2019 start?
- Date: Sunday, Aug. 11
- Time: 5 p.m. ET (preshow) | 7 p.m. ET (main card)
- Location: Scotiabank Arena, Toronto
- TV channel: WWE Network (PPV)
- Live stream: WWE.com/livestream+
The show has been held in Brooklyn the past 4 years and Los Angeles the 6 years prior to that. So will this change to Toronto be a one off or carry on for the next few years? I guess the crowd will be the judge of that.

Final Thoughts on WWE SummerSlam 2019
It’s going to be a long night. Just like WrestleMania. 5pm start time and likely done 5+ hours later. Maybe a porta-potty?
