Vince McMahon is a big fan of tradition, and it appears that he has found one that he really likes. During Monday Night Raw, it was announced to the live audience that Summerslam 2014 will be taking place in Los Angeles at the Staples Center. This will mark the sixth consecutive year that the event has been held in the city.
Batista is scheduled to make his WWE return tonight at Monday Night Raw, and it has now been confirmed that he is indeed backstage at the event. Earlier today, he joked about how he should have returned at Summerslam instead of the Royal Rumble because of the cold weather in Ohio.
Despite being a former WWE Champion, the Miz is being left off of the Summerslam pay per view as an in ring performer. The company opted not to give him a match on one of their biggest events of the year. Instead, he will be hosting the show.
