WWE SummerSlam Details
SummerSlam is one of the WWE’s original “Big Four” pay-per-view events. It started in August, 1988, when the event took place at Madison Square Garden. Many consider SummerSlam to be the second biggest pay-per-view of the year, as only Wrestlemania draws a bigger crowd or more attention. And while this event is no longer at MSG, it isn’t too far away. SummerSlam 2017 will take place on Sunday, Aug. 20, and it’ll be located at Barclays Center in Brooklyn, NY. Barclays has hosted the event since 2015, and there is no better place to take in the action.
Birth of the WWE Universal Championship
SummerSlam 2016 featured the first ever WWE Universal Championship Match, as Seth Rollins and Finn Bálor battled it out for the belt in that one. The match was as intense as could be, as each wrestler gave everything he had in order to take home the belt. Bálor ended up winning the match, kicking out of Rollins’ signature “Pedigree” at the last second and then coming back to ultimately finish Rollins off with a “Coup de Grace” off the top rope. The match was a representation of how far each of those fighters has come, as both of them earned their stripes in the NXT Division. Bálor also happened to make history in that fight, as he became the first ever wrestler to win a championship match in his PPV debut.
