WWE SummerSlam is considered one of the big 'four' PPVs that WWE created alongside WWE Wrestlemania, WWE Survivor Series and the WWE Royal Rumble. WWE SummerSlam is considered the second biggest wrestling pay per view of the year. Concurrently, WWE sells SummerSlam as the biggest party of the year.
The First WWE SummerSlam took place in 1988 in New York City at the very famous Madison Square Garden. The Main Event was The Mega Powers (Hulk Hogan and Randy Savage) vs. The Mega Bucks(Ted DiBiase and André The Giant) with special guest referee Jesse Ventura. Truth be told, SummerSlam was actually created as the 3rd pay per view after Wrestlemania and Survivor Series respectively.
Currently, SummerSlam has always been dual branded meaning that Superstars from both RAW and Smackdown will be taking part in the action.
