SummerSlam leaving New York next year?

Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York has been the home for WWE SummerSlam since past 3 years and the company is set to return to the venue for the PPV once again later this year.

However, it appears that this will be the final time the Brooklyn based arena holds the PPV as reports suggest that the company is looking to move it away from New York.

According to the WrestleVotes Twitter account, the company is looking to move the PPV away next year and they are eying for a bigger and outdoor stadium for the show, similar to WrestleMania:

This expected change could be seen as the company’s efforts to take their second biggest show of the year to the next level and put it in line with WrestleMania.

SummerSlam switched venues every year up until 2008. Since 2009 the company started holding the event in Staples Center in Los Angeles and then moved to the current venue in 2015.

    Yes but you don’t wanna go to the hottest city in the hottest month of the year

    SummerSlam USED to get around. I don’t know why they camped out in Brooklyn the past few years, but there are plenty of other venues they could journey to again.

    To me a PPV called Summerslam should be held somewhere associated with summer and hot weather, like Florida or California. Kinda makes more sense than New York which is hardly a summer style resort.
