Scrapped Pitch For WWE SummerSlam 2024 Location Revealed

One Big Thing

The initial pitch for WWE’s SummerSlam 2024 to take place at Paycor Stadium, the home of the Cincinnati Bengals, was scrapped in favor of Cleveland Browns Stadium in Cleveland, Ohio.

Key Takeaways

  • SummerSlam 2024 is set for Cleveland Browns Stadium, overlooking a pitch for Paycor Stadium in Cincinnati, Ohio.
  • Hamilton County Administrator Jeff Alutto disclosed that the Cincinnati Bengals had multiple interactions with WWE but ultimately didn’t receive a callback.
  • Paycor Stadium’s record attendance is 67,260, hinting at a potential higher turnout for a significant wrestling event.
  • Contrastingly, Cleveland Browns Stadium boasts a higher record attendance of 73,718.
  • WWE star and US Champion Logan Paul hails from Cleveland, Ohio, adding local interest to the venue choice.

Why It Matters

Choosing the venue for one of WWE’s marquee events is pivotal, not just for the logistical and attendance aspects but also for the narrative and local engagement it can foster. Cleveland vs. Cincinnati pitched not just two cities but two visions for WWE’s summer spectacle. The decision underscores WWE’s strategy in venue selection, balancing between maximum attendance, local star power, and fan experience.


WWE’s premium live events are major draws both in terms of live audience and global viewership. The choice of venue is strategic, aiming to maximize exposure and deliver on the spectacle that fans expect from such events. With Logan Paul’s growing wrestling career and his Ohio roots, the selection of Cleveland as the venue also hints at WWE leveraging his star power to enhance the event’s appeal.
