WWE SummerSlam 2018 will be an innovative show because the pre-show will be shown in VR for the very first time.

Watching it in 3D VR means people not watching the show live in person can experience what it is like witnessing a WWE show at ringside.

WWE.com posted all of the information on the official website. You can read the whole announcement for it posted down below.

"This Sunday you can experience SummerSlam Kickoff like never before through the Oculus Venues and NextVR apps. The NextVR app will present a live 3D virtual reality broadcast on VR headsets where the NextVR app is available, including Oculus, Google Daydream, HTC Vive, Windows Mixed Reality and Playstation VR. SummerSlam highlights presented by Cricket Wireless will be available to all NextVR app users on Monday Aug. 27. Additionally, Oculus Venues will offer a live 2D VR broadcast of SummerSlam Kickoff within the Oculus Venues app available to GearVR and Oculus Go users. Don't miss out on this incredible SummerSlam Kickoff experience, live at 5 p.m. ET."

VR may be in its infancy but the technology is slowly becoming more widely used.

The technology WWE is using could also be used by musicians so that they can let fans outside of the arena experience what it's like being at a concert.
