We are gutted that the state of the world simply hasn’t allowed us to seriously consider a real life viewing party for SummerSlam this year.
Well, rather than sulk, we thought we would do something a little bit different so we are going online and bringing you an online SummerSlam Viewing Party on Sunday August 23rd.
But that’s not all. As regulars at our events will know, our nights are about so much more than just the PPV. So we have a packed night of action for you before the show starts at midnight.
We will of course have our usual quiz but we will also be focusing on the greatest moment in wrestling in the UK – the main event of SummerSlam 1992.
We will be hosting special Q&As and a watch-along of the match from Wembley between The British Bulldog and Bret ‘Hitman’ Hart. We will be joined by some extra special guests to help us celebrate this moment.
None other than the Bulldog’s children, Georgia and Harry Smith and his wife Diana Smith who will all give us a unique insight into the match, what it meant to their family and the mindsets of both combatants going into the event.
We will be joined also by Martin Goldsmith. Martin is the promoter who made SummerSlam 1992 in the UK possible. Without the vision from him and his brother Harvey, the event would never have been considered.
Martin will tell us some never before tales about what it took to convince Vince McMahon to bring SummerSlam to Wembley and all the crazy stories from the run up to the show and from backstage at Wembley.
We will also be joined by a whole bunch of special guests that will be announced in the run up to the event.
The whole event is completely free although you will of course need the WWE Network to watch the SummerSlam PPV itself along with us.
To ensure you keep up to date with all the announcements and the schedule for the night (To be announced a few days before the show), mark yourself as ‘going’ at the Facebook event page and keep an eye on this website, particularly hookedonwrestling.co.uk/summerslam where we will be making all the announcements first.
We will be broadcasting LIVE from 8PM on Sunday August 23rd on both our Facebook page and YouTube channel. We must stress, we will of course NOT be broadcasting the SummerSlam 2020 in the feed. Our exclusive content will run from 8PM – midnight and then we will switch to an online SummerSlam watch-along.
We can’t wait for SummerSlam! We are so sorry we can’t party with you properly but all of this should give wrestling fans in the UK and beyond a night to remember!
