WWE's biggest event of the summer is fast approaching. WWE SummerSlam will take place on Aug. 21 from Las Vegas. The event takes place on a Saturday, marking the very rare occasion a WWE pay-per-view takes place on a day other than Sunday.

SummerSlam is expected to feature many big matches, including the return of many big name superstars. Leading those rumored to participate at the event is John Cena, who made his return to WWE at the end of the Money in the Bank event to confront universal champion Roman Reigns.
