WWE announced that WWE SummerSlam 2018 pay-per-view event will come back to the Barclays Center. This event was held for four consecutive years in that place.
Initially I moved to the house of Brooklyn Nets in 2015, but now it seems to be a perfect home for WWE. Executive vice president of company special event John Saboor discussed the advantages of this situation, according to Joseph Staszewski of New York Post:
“Our partners in New York have worked tirelessly to help create the incremental growth of SummerSlam week through the presentation of not only our ticketed and fan events at the Barclays Center, but also through the community-based events taking place in the city’s five boroughs. We are very proud of that and the work that we have done.”
The 2017 version of this event is scheduled for next Sunday, August 20.
PPV, which was regarded as the second biggest event on the wrestling calendar after WrestleMania, was turning around various cities until 2009, when he stayed at the Staples Center in Los Angeles for six years.
