SummerSlam 2020 is on the horizon, and the latest WWE Rumors indicate that Vince McMahon wants to do something interesting…

If the Horror Show and Extreme Rules made you question what you were watching unfold between your eyes between the Eye for an Eye match and the Wyatt Swamp Fight main event, just wait until WWE SummerSlam 2020.

The Biggest Party of the Summer is on the horizon, set to take place on Aug. 23 at the Performance Center. Except…what if it doesn’t take place at the PC?

According to WrestlingNews.Co’s Paul Davis, PW Insider Elite reported that WWE has considered moving SummerSlam to the beach or a boat.

No, seriously. A beach or a boat. Because otherwise, how else will we know it’s a summer party without fans throwing beach balls in the audience?

Davis cites a different take from Bryan Alvarez. Speaking on Wrestling Observer Radio, the longtime wrestling critic said that he knows Vince McMahon “wants something wacky for SummerSlam.”

And now I’m nervous to find out what that might be. Because “wacky” in Vince’s world isn’t what it means for the rest of us. No, turn the meaning of that word up to 11, and then you get exactly what Vince thinks is something beyond what we’d expect.

Cinematic matches, a completely different setting, something grosser than an Eye for an Eye match, or a gimmick match akin to what WWE did at Money in the Bank. Anything and everything might be on the table for Vince McMahon, who is clearly taking the new format of the shows without fans as an opportunity to experiment.

Sometimes it’s paid off. Look no further than the two very different – but equally excellent – cinematic matches at WrestleMania 36.

So if Vince wants to make this a SummerSlam to remember despite the fact that the Biggest Party of the Summer can’t take place with fans, then, by all means, let’s see what WWE’s promoter has cooked up. I might be scared, but, at this point, I’m ready for whatever the hell WWE throws at us. We’ve seen it all, right? (I ask that question, nervously chuckling…)
