The WWE is putting on SummerSlam, the third PPV WWE created that’s still going on today. It is joined with three others including WrestleMania, Survivor Series, and Royal Rumble. This event will take place on August 19th, 2018 on the WWE Network. The streaming channel is available in a select number of regions including the USA. I would recommend a VPN if you are planning to travel outside their supported area during the event. The VPN will help access the WWE Network by changing your IP address to a US IP that is supported by the service.

In 1952, professional wrestling and boxing promoter Jess McMahon and his friend, Toots Mondt, founded the Capitol Wrestling Corporation. Two years later, McMahon passed away, and the business was inherited by his son. Since those humble beginnings, many changes have happened. Today, the professional wrestling promotion company now known as World Wrestling Entertainment is the largest in the world. It was the ambition of Vincent K. McMahon, Jess’s grandson, that has made the company what it is today.
In 1982, the younger McMahon bought the company from his father. The success of the WWE could not have been obtained without the help of larger than life characters. Great names like Hulk Hogan, Lou Albano, Andre the Giant, Randy Savage, and a few others. Some of those characters were holdovers from his father’s company. The mid-’80s also saw the return of wrestling to national television for the first time since the 1950s. There was even a Saturday morning cartoon that used some of the WWE characters called Hulk Hogan’s Rock and Wrestling.
This year, SummerSlam will be airing its twenty-eight time. The event has been going on since the time of Hulk Hogan and has gone through several generations of superstars. SummerSlam is not known for much, besides it is in the summer and it always has great main events. Main events like Triple H being the referee for the match between champion John Cena versus champion CM Punk for the WWE Undisputed Championship as an example. No one will forget that WWE star CM Punk won out against Cena just to get beat by Alberto Del Rio, the Money in the Bank winner at the time, seconds later for the championship.
SummerSlam is one of the older, yet still loved events, put on by the WWE. After the success of WrestleMania, McMahon decided to hold SummerSlam, and other events in the same genre. On August 21st, 2016 it will air on WWE Network. The way you will get this event is by becoming a WWE Network member. The membership cost is $9.99, but the WWE Network will occasionally have one month free trials. Overall, SummerSlam is a big event with a lot of history that you’re not going to want to miss. Whether you are a new fan to professional wrestling or you have watched it for a few decades, there is always action and high drama in the big wrestling events. You can bet this one will be no different.
