WWE Moving Matches to the Kickoff Show to Try and Get Fans Out Before Sometime Tomorrow Afternoon

Well, before Midnight. Remember, the New Jersey crowd at WrestleMania had trouble getting home as they had to wait for hours for the botched main event to finish. Obviously, the WWE doesn't want that to happen at Summerslam.

WWE is set to move three matches to the SummerSlam Kickoff show, according to a new report. PWInsider has confirmed that there are plans to move the matches, which include Drew Gulak’s Cruiserweight Championship match against Oney Lorcan, to the pre-show.

The Kickoff show beguns at 5 PM ET ahead of the main show at 7 PM. 411 will have full, live coverage of the event.
