SummerSlam 2015 Location Confirmed!

" WWE’s biggest Superstars and Divas will be pile-driving their way back to the Big Apple this summer.

After six years on the West Coast, WWE is bringing its powerhouse pay-per-view event, SummerSlam, to the Barclays Center in Brooklyn for the first time, the Daily News has learned.

The main event, to be held Sunday, Aug. 23, will conclude a week-long "celebration" of wrestling and entertainment.

"SummerSlam in New York matches one of the most iconic sports and entertainment celebrations with one of the world's greatest cities," John Saboor, WWE executive vice president for special events, told the Daily News.

The official announcement will be made later Thursday.

It’s a return to SummerSlam’s roots after the event sold out the Staples Center in L.A. for six straight years. New York, after all, is the city where the event first hit the mat, with the inaugural SummerSlam at Madison Square Garden in 1988.

"We thought it made great sense to come back to the East Coast," Saboor said, "and we could not think of a better host city."

“Brooklyn is an international brand and is the perfect stage for a major global event like WWE SummerSlam,” Barclays Center CEO Brett Yormark said.

The last time WWE wowed Big Apple wrestling fans with one of its marquee events was in 2013, when WrestleMania29 invaded MetLife Stadium.

“It’s not just a one-day celebration,” Saboor promised.

Fans will also be able to meet their favorite stars at autograph signings and other fan events. WWE also plans to organize anti-bullying rallies, hospital visits and other community outreach programs.

Tickets go on sale March 14 at 10 a.m"

I'll be there, so I can finish off the Big Three (RR, Mania and SummerSlam) in 2015! Looking forward to seeing the arena. I've never even been to Brooklyn before.
