SummerSlam weekend itself is being moved up a week with the shows scheduled for Saturday, August 10th through Tuesday, August 13th. In addition, they will be holding a SummerSlam Fan Axxess convention at the Metro Toronto Convention Centre during the week.

This is the first year that SummerSlam will take place outside of Brooklyn since 2014. New York and New Jersey are set to host WrestleMania weekend in 2019, therefore moving SummerSlam to another location next year.

It is the first time that Toronto has hosted a SummerSlam event since August 2004 at the same building, which featured Randy Orton defeating Chris Benoit in the main event for the World title.
