The news that the pay-per-view event will be held at the home of the NFL's Detroit Lions on August 5 later this year was first reported by Detroit's local online newspaper, The Detroit News. Shortly afterward, WWE's Dan Ventrelle confirmed the news, saying:

We are excited for Ford Field to host WWE’s biggest event of the summer and look forward to the WWE Universe converging on Detroit to celebrate SummerSlam’s long-awaited return to Michigan.

The executive director of the Detroit Metro Sports Commission, Dave Beachnau, expressed his delight, saying:

Landing WWE SummerSlam at Ford Field is a signature win for Detroit and continues the momentum of the Detroit Sports Commission in attracting major sporting events to the region. Metro Detroit enjoys a special place in WWE history and has produced many iconic moments. Thank you to the entire WWE family for entrusting us with this incredible opportunity, and we look forward to delivering a first-class experience.

The annual event that takes place in August is regarded as the second-biggest WWE event of the year. SummerSlam was staged in a stadium for the first time in 2021. Sold as the "biggest event of 2021," the 2021 edition became the highest-grossing SummerSlam event of all time. Subsequently, the 2022 event was held at Nissan Stadium in Nashville.

By the time SummerSlam 2023 rolls around, wrestling fans will be hoping that the outcome of WrestleMania 39 will have produced a new Undisputed WWE Universal Champion.
