Rumored SummerSlam Match For AJ Styles, WWE to Use Virtual Fans?

Rumored SummerSlam Match For AJ Styles
Jeff Hardy vs. WWE Intercontinental Champion AJ Styles is reportedly planned for SummerSlam.

Hardy vs. Styles was the planned direction for the SmackDown on FOX episode that is being taped today at the WWE Performance Center, to air tomorrow night, according to PWInsider. Hardy recently worked a feud with Sheamus while Styles has retained over Gran Metalik, Matt Riddle and Drew Gulak in recent weeks since winning the vacant title in early June.

Another interesting note in the report included how “WWE is, for the first time, toying with using virtual fans as a possibility for future broadcasts, including SummerSlam.”

The 2020 SummerSlam pay-per-view is scheduled to air live on August 23. It's being reported that the event will take place at the Amway Center in Orlando, FL, but that has not been confirmed as of this writing.
