But those in the Big Apple won't have to wait long until the next WWE event, for WrestleMania 35 will take place in MetLife Stadium this upcoming April.

WWE Superstar Sasha Banks fueled rumors SummerSlam 2019 would take place in Los Angeles after saying in a WWE Now video interview that this year would be the last one in Brooklyn before heading to LA.

Dave Meltzer of the Wrestling Observer reported before this year's show that SummerSlam 2019 would not be in Los Angeles, and he was correct.

Next year's event will be the 15th WWE pay-per-view to be held in Canada and the second SummerSlam to take place in the Great White North. The first SummerSlam in Canada was also held in Toronto in 2004.
