WWE will hold SummerSlam in Las Vegas...at Allegiant Stadium - the home of Raiders! It’ll be the largest venue to host the event since London’s Wembley Stadium...all the way back in 1992. The stadium can hold as many as 72,000 fans.
The date for the show was already set for Saturday, August 21st.
Police are searching for a man who broke into the home of the ThunderDome - the University of South Florida’s Yuengling Center. Police shared security camera images - showing an unidentified man stealing several items - a gym bag and what appears to be a title belt.
The United States Champion Sheamus shared a picture of himself in the hospital over the weekend - apparently, he needed surgery to repair facial injuries he suffered last Monday. It’s not clear how much time he’ll miss - if any.
