The event will be headlined by the Brock Lesnar vs Randy Orton showdown, with a great undercard including Seth Rollins vs Finn Balor for the brand new WWE Universal Championship.

For pro wrestling fans around the world, this is is the second biggest weekend of the year (after WrestleMania), with the NXT Takeover: Brooklyn special taking place in the same building on Saturday evening.

NXT Takeover, which offers a stacked card headlined by Shiunsuke Nakamura vs. Samoa Joe for the NXT Championship. The women’s title is also on the line as Bayley squares off against defending champion Asuka.


Undoubtedly the best place to watch all of the festivities this weekend is on the WWE Network streaming service.

The £9.99/$9.99 a month over the top streaming service gives users the first month free, so if you’re new to the network you can sign-up here.

The WWE Network is available on practically every major connected streaming device, so you can watch on your TV or mobile device.

NXT Takeover starts on Saturday night at 8pm EST, which is 1am UK time.

SummerSlam itself, which also features a world title match between Dean Ambrose and Dolph Ziggler, will commence at 7pm ET/12am UK time on Sunday night.

That’s an hour earlier than usual, while there’ll also be a 2-hour pre-show on the WWE network featuring bonus matches.
