WWE has a lot of things in the pipeline, and although they might be looking to sell the company soon enough, the show must go on. Now, we know where they are taking the biggest party of the summer.
Detroit is famous for a few things, including Eminem and hosting WrestleMania in 2007. This year they will also host SummerSlam, and add to that history.
WWE revealed in an official press release that SummerSlam 2023 will go down in Detroit’s Ford Field on August 5th. Tickets for the event will go on sale on April 14yh, 2023.
STAMFORD, Conn.–(BUSINESS WIRE)– WWE® (NYSE: WWE) today announced that Ford Field in Detroit will host SummerSlam on Saturday, August 5.

SummerSlam is WWE’s second-biggest event of the year, and there were once plans to build an entire weekend of activities in host cities. Only time will tell what this will bring to Detroit, but that city could certainly use the financial influx as a destination location for SummerSlam 2023.
