Summerslam could be coming to a city for the first time in 30 years.
Fightful Select has learned that a front runner for the 2023 summer spectacular is Detroit, Michigan. Though we've not heard that anything is finalized. WWE sources have indicated that Detroit was being looked at to those the show in recent months.
WWE hasn't been to the area for Summerslam in quite some time. The last time was 1993 at the Palace of Auburn Hills, where the Detroit Pistons formerly played. Possible venues for the show include Ford Field, which hosted WrestleMania, Comerica Park, home of the Detroit Tigers and Little Caesers Arena, home of the Detroit Pistons. The last two years, WWE has promoted stadium shows for the event.
It should be noted that nothing is finalized until it's announced, and could change. We've since heard that Ford Field is the target for the event.
