WWE announced that they will break an annual tradition with next year’s SummerSlam, moving the event from the Staples Center in Los Angeles, California to the New York/New Jersey market.
As things stand now, WWE will most likely run the show at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York, or the Izod Center in East Rutherford, New Jersey. There is also talk of trying to run MetLife Stadium.
Apparently the feeling in the company is that it’s just too expensive to run Madison Square Garden in New York for a major show these days compared to other arenas in the market.
