WWE and TikTok are launching a contest to find two people who will appear as ring announcers at SummerSlam.
“Beginning today, WWE will launch a search for its next great ring announcer on TikTok, as users can upload their most entertaining videos using the hashtag #WWEAnnouncerContest,” WWE announced. “The best performers will earn a trip to SummerSlam at Allegiant Stadium in Las Vegas on Saturday, August 21, where they will serve as a ring announcer at WWE’s biggest event of 2021. The announcer search is presented by Pure Life Purified Water.”
WWE will review each submission in the weeks leading into SummerSlam. The two winners will then be announced on WWE’s TikTok channel on Monday, August 16.
“Our engagement on TikTok to date has been incredible and we couldn’t think of a better platform to help us find the next great ring announcer,” said Steve Braband, WWE Vice President, Digital.
“Today’s announcement follows another innovative TikTok activation, through which WWE aims to discover and recruit its next generation of Superstars via the TikTok Resumes product,” WWE wrote. “The search culminates in a multi-day talent tryout in Las Vegas as part of SummerSlam.”
Las Vegas’ Allegiant Stadium is hosting SummerSlam on Saturday, August 21. John Cena returned to WWE programming at Money in the Bank last night to confront Universal Champion Roman Reigns and set up a match for SummerSlam. The match has yet to be officially announced.
