WWE SummerSlam is shaping up to be a block-buster with ten mega-matches. The biggest party of the summer is just over the horizon. Get ready for a splash of some sports entertainment with the superstars of WWE. Both Raw and SmackDown will come together to tear the roof off the Barclay’s Center.
“The Beast Incarnate” Brock Lesnar will need to overcome three of the most vicious Monday night warriors. Lesnar will put his WWE Universal Championship on the line against the very best of Raw. He’ll be facing off against two former foes in the form of Samoa Joe and Roman Reigns. But he’s never tested the strength of “The Monster Among Men” Braun Strowman. Who will walk out of SummerSlam as Universal Champion?
The second main event of the evening involves “The Modern Day Maharaja” Jinder Mahal putting his WWE World Championship on the line against “The King of Strong Style” Shinsuke Nakamura. Can Mahal make it out of Brooklyn with the strap? Or will Shinsuke become King of the WWE inside the Barclay’s Center?
There’s so many great matches and moments to look forward to at SummerSlam 2017. Look below and find out more regarding one of the biggest pro wrestling events of the entire year…

WWE SummerSlam 2017 Location
The Barclay’s Center hosts WWE SummerSlam for the second year in a row. Brooklyn has featured this yearly spectacle since 2015. This upcoming event will be the third time the Barclay’s Center opened its doors to the “biggest party of the summer.”
On September 28, 2012, Jay Z became the first person to perform at the Barclay’s Center. Since then, this arena has become the home of the Brooklyn Nets.
WWE SummerSlam 2017 Location (Minecraft Style)
Here’s WWE SummerSlam from the Barclay’s Center as seen through Minecraft vision. Is this really necessary? Of course it is! Here’s a choppy computerized version of where “the biggest party of the summer” will be held. For some reason, Minecraft Braun Strowman seems very natural to me. He needs to go chop down trees and build a house (both with his bare hands).
