The Barclays Center thanks WWE for an incredible weekend

The Barclays Center was in full WWE mode this weekend with the social media team tweeting all kinds of WWE-related happenings and pictures to commemorate the 3 sell-outs in a row that WWE managed to achieve for the SummerSlam weekend.

SummerSlam originally was not supposed to take place at the Barclays Center but it was set for the Izod Center in East Rutherford, New Jersey. With the city shutting down the Izod Center, WWE moved the pay-per-view to the Barclays Center where Raw was already booked to take place the following day. An NXT event, first a regular show and not a Takeover event, was slated to take place at a smaller venue but then the company decided to go all guns blazing and booked NXT at the Barclays Center as well. WWE managed to sell out all events.

“Thank You @StephMcMahon @TripleH @VinceMcMahon @WWE for 3 INCREDIBLE events in a row! See you in December,” said a tweet from the Barclays Center official Twitter account. WWE is back in the building for a Raw in December of this year. After a fan asked to have every WWE show at the arena from now on, the social media team behind @barclayscenter replied, “We second that!”

In addition, to celebrate Vince McMahon’s 70th birthday yesterday, the Barclays Center displayed a huge “Happy Birthday Vince McMahon” with the WWE logo on the massive video wall outside the arena during the day.
