Last year, the biggest party of the summer emanated from Brooklyn’s legendary Barclays Center.
We’re now knee deep into 2017 and WWE has decided to take its SummerSlam spectacular back to BK. Raw and SmackDown will feature their best Superstars on one of WWE’s biggest PPV’s. And once again, this event will kick off one hour earlier than WWE’s usual Sunday events and provide 4-hours of entertainment. The match that’s sure to take the main event spot is the WWE Universal Championship Fatal Four Way bout. The current king of the mountain Brock Lesnar will have to defend his title against three willing challengers – Samoa Joe, Roman Reigns and Braun Strowman.
Here’s the official date, location and Kickoff/main show start times for WWE SummerSlam 2017.
WWE SummerSlam 2017 will take place on the WWE Network and PPV on August 20, 2017.
