The hottest event of the summer is heating up the Great White North this weekend, as WWE SummerSlam invades Toronto, and RadarOnline.com has a special sneak peak of everything fans can expect.
It all begins on Friday, August 9 with a special weekend-long Meet & Greet at the Metro Toronto Convention Centre, where fans will have access to their favorite WWE Superstars and Legends during autograph signings and photograph opportunities.
