Summer Slam is Just One of the WWE’s’Big Four’ PPV events Combined with Royal Rumble, Survivor Series and Wrestlemania.
It’s possibly the second or third biggest event of the year behind just Wrestlemania and maybe the Royal Rumble. The very first Summer Slam was held in Madison Square Garden in 1988 headlined by a tag team match between’The Mega Powers’ (Hulk Hogan and Randy Savage) vs.’The Mega Bucks’ (who were unfortunately not the Young Bucks however Ted DiBiase and Andre the Giant). Jesse’The Body’ Ventura has been the special referee for that match. The main event of last year’s Summer Slam was substantially better than the’Mega v. Mega’ tag team trainwreck at the first incarnation of the occasion. At Summer Slam 2017 the Primary event featured Brock Lesnar defending his Universal Championship in a’Fatal 4-Way’ against Braun Strowman, Roman Reigns and Samoa Joe. A 4??3/4 star rating was earned by the match from Dave Meltzer. It’s very probable that Lesnar’s Universal Title defense will once again proceed as the primary event, now at a singles game against Roman Reigns.
In the last few years, the WWE has made Brooklyn’s Barclays Center arena the de facto home of the Summer Slam event. This will be the fourth consecutive Summer Slam held in the home of the NBA New Jersey Nets and (for now at least) the NHL New York Islanders. It should be noted that before this conduct of Summer Slam reveals in Brooklyn the event named Los Angeles’ Staples Center home for six successive years from 2009 to 2014.
Since we are still three weeks out from Summer Slam 2018 there is every reason to believe this card is subject to change. For all we know, it might wind up being a’Turkey on a Pole Match’ for the Universal Title. In light of the near certainty for changes along with this card we will call our’opening odds’. As we get closer to this event we’ll add some props and update the numbers on every game on the card.
