The Barclays Center and WWE announced today that SummerSlam will take place at Barclays Center in Brooklyn on Sunday, August 23, 2015. The show was originally scheduled to take place in East Rutherford, New Jersey, at the Izod Center but the state of New Jersey has shut down the facility.

“We are thrilled to be back in New York for WWE’s second largest destination event of the year,” said John P. Saboor, WWE Executive Vice President, Special Events. “We look forward to continuing our wonderful relationships with both Barclays Center and NYC & Company in what will surely be a memorable weekend in Brooklyn.”
Fred Dixon, President and CEO of NYC & Company, said that they’re happy to welcome SummerSlam back in New York City. “Events like SummerSlam bring people from around the world to New York City, giving them yet another reason to visit and explore the five boroughs. Thanks to WWE, there’s another fantastic reason to visit us this summer.”
This marks the first time that SummerSlam will be held at Barclays Center. The event has previously been held in New York in 1988, 1991, 1998 and 2002. The Staples Center in Los Angeles hosted the event the past six years.
