How to watch WWE SummerSlam live and free in Australia
Multiple belts are on the line when the 33rd WWE SummerSlam launches at a new home in Orlando. This is how you can catch the action.
The WWE continues to roll on without fans in attendance due to COVID-19 and will now hold its SummerSlam PPV in the "ThunderDome". WWE has moved away from its performance centre and has relocated to Orlando's Amway Center.
The ring setup will now look a little more traditional, with atmosphere to be created by using virtual fans similar to what the NBA has done. SummerSlam is traditionally WWE's second biggest PPV on the calendar.
This year's event is headlined by Randy Orton challenging Drew McIntyre for his WWE Championship. "The Fiend" Bray Wyatt also puts his Universal Championship on the line in a falls count anywhere match with Braun Strowman.
When is SummerSlam?
The 2020 edition of SummerSlam is on Monday 24 August. The pre-show starts at 8am AEST, while the PPV begins at 9am AEST.
How to watch SummerSlam?
SummerSlam is back in 2020 and in Australia you have a couple of options when it comes to catching all the high-flying action. There is the WWE Network, the wrestling giant's own streaming platform.
