In case you didn't know...

The Barclays Center has become the home for SummerSlam ever since WWE presented the show back in 2015 which was coincidentally the same year that NXT Takeover: Brooklyn made its debut.

SummerSlam was never focused to one place for four years before WWE signed a contract with the Barclays Center, but it has been a beneficial deal for the company who are set to present their NXT and main roster shows from the same arena for what could be the final time later this year.

The heart of the matter

Wrestlevotes noted on Twitter earlier today that WWE could be looking to move SummerSlam away from Brooklyn after this year since the company is now looking into hosting their bigger events in Stadiums moving forward.

Brooklyn has been a fantastic place for WWE over the past four years and it has also proved a lucky venue for their NXT roster. If the company is looking to move away from The Barclays Centre then this would be the first time in NXT history that their summer pay-per-view didn't take place in New York.

What's next?

WWE is still set to broadcast this year's SummerSlam from The Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York on August 19th, but it is thought that this could be the last time that The Biggest Part of the Summer takes over The Big Apple.


Should WWE move SummerSlam away from Brooklyn or has the city become its unofficial home? Have your say in the comments section below!
