WWE and Iconic Events Releasing have announced a new partnership that brings SummerSlam, WWE’s biggest event of 2021, to movie theatres across the US for the first time.
The event will air live on August 21st and will be one of the first sporting events held at full capacity at Allegiant Stadium, Las Vegas – and the first time the long-running annual PPV will be held at an NFL venue.
“Iconic Events Releasing is proud to be in partnership with WWE to bring their incredible brand to movie theatres coast to coast,” said Iconic CEO Steve Bunnell. “SummerSlam is a marquee event that demands to be seen on the big screen, with big sound, in an auditorium full of excited fans.”
Iconic Events Releasing brings live and filmed entertainment of all types to movie theatres as special limited engagement events, so fans can gather together to watch on the big screen.
The event is rumoured to be headlined by two marquee matches – Bobby Lashley vs Goldberg and Roman Reigns vs John Cena.
Tickets to see SummerSlam live in theaters are on sale now.
