WWE News: SummerSlam 2017 ticket details and location announced
What’s the story?
WWE has announced on their website, as well as their social media accounts, that the 2017 SummerSlam pay-per-view is heading back to Brooklyn for the summer's hottest event!
WWE had made an announcement back in the 2015 edition that they would be returning to the Barclays center for three consecutive years and this is the confirmation of the same.
In case you didn't know...
This year will mark the seventh time WWE has held SummerSlam inside the state of New York and the third consecutive year that they are returning to Brooklyn. SummerSlam has always been considered one of WWE’s “Big Four,” along with WrestleMania, Royal Rumble, and Survivor Series.
The heart of the matter:
WWE have officially confirmed that Brooklyn’s Barclays Center will once again be the host for the 2017 SummerSlam extravaganza. WWE officials have been extremely pleased with the way things have been handled the past two years in Brooklyn, so they have decided to go for it the third time around.

Tickets are already on-sale and can be purchased through Ticketmaster. After a quick search, I was able to confirm that the best ticket available as of this writing is on the floor, the second row from the ring. The price of that particular seat is $1,800.00 per ticket.
For those on a more frugal budget, the lower end tickets will put you in the rafters of the Barclays Center for a mere $230 bucks.
I’m sure that as we get finished with Wrestlemania and inch closer to the summer, we will begin to see builds for SummerSlam.
It is worth noting that there are still several events remaining between now and SummerSlam. Following Wrestlemania 33, the RAW roster has three pay-per-views before SummerSlam and Smackdown LIVE has two.
While it’s not really a big deal, I have always been a fan of SummerSlam being held in a warmer climate area, such as Florida or California.
However, Brooklyn has been a fantastic host in previous years and New York fans, in general, are among the most passionate wrestling fans in the world, so I get why they decided to stick with The Barclays Center.
It’ll be a great weekend of WWE action, especially considering NXT is already confirmed to run another Takeover event in Brooklyn, the night before SummerSlam, just as they have the past two years.
