LA Hosting SummerSlam in 2019? NXT Star Returns, All In Sponsor

This weekend will see WWE return to Brooklyn, New York for all of their SummerSlam festivities for the fourth year in a row. Since 2015, the company has hosted SummerSlam in the Barclays Center, but there has not been any news yet on whether or not WWE will be returning for a fifth year in 2019. No confirmation on next year’s location has been released yet, but in a new video with WWE’s Cathy Kelley and Sasha Banks, Banks may have let it slip that next year’s SummerSlam location will be Los Angeles, California. LA hosted SummerSlam for a number of years before WWE started taking the event to New York. The LA mention from Banks can be heard at around the 13-minute mark in the video posted below:

One NXT Superstar who has been out of the ring for a little while now is Oney Lorcan. During a match with Danny Burch against The Undisputed Era’s Kyle O’Reilly and Roderick Strong for the NXT Tag Team Championships at NXT Takeover: Chicago earlier this year, Lorcan received a broken orbital bone that has kept him on the shelf ever since. However, during an NXT live event in Lowell, Michigan this past Thursday night, Lorcan made his unannounced in-ring return to team up with Burch again for a tag team match against The War Raiders. No word on when Lorcan will be returning to NXT programming, but to expect to see him back on TV very soon now that he has been cleared to wrestle again.

At this point, the All In event cannot possibly get much bigger. The massive show will feature several talented wrestling personalities from Impact Wrestling, Lucha Underground, Ring of Honor, New Japan Pro Wrestling, and other promotions. WGN America, pay-per-view providers, and a few on-demand wrestling networks are getting in on the fun by broadcasting the event, but could the TGI Fridays restaurant chain be sponsoring the event now. Matt Jackson of the Young Bucks announced that the restaurant would be sponsoring the show after seeing the All In moniker used to advertise their new $10 deal. The restaurant played back by saying that they are definitely All In with The Bucks, and even by joking about firing Baron Cobin.
