As noted, WWE star Sasha Banks claimed during a SummerSlam live interview with Cathy Kelley on Friday that WWE SummerSlam is headed to Los Angeles next year, but F4WOnline.com reports WWE is maintaining the PPV is not heading to LA. PWInsider.com has since provided an update on the story, noting sources have indicated SummerSlam next year might be held in Toronto.
Vince McMahon Nearly Replaced Stephanie at SummerSlam Meet-and-Greet
As noted, Triple H and Stephanie McMahon made a special SummerSlam meet-and-greet appearance on Friday night at The Barclays Center to raise money for Connor’s Cure, however, PWInsider.com reports Stephanie almost missed the event.
Earlier in the day on Friday, Stephanie attended the funeral services for Jim Neidhart in Florida, and with inclement weather and thunderstorms in New York City, she almost did not make it back in time for the meet-and-greet. It was announced to the crowd at the meet-and-greet that if Stephanie could not make it then she would be replaced by Vince McMahon, but as seen below, Stephanie ended up making it to the appearance:
