WWE have announced that SummerSlam 2022 was the most viewed SummerSlam in history.
In a new press release WWE touted the success of their most recent spectacular SummerSlam.
The event held at Nissan Stadium in Nashville played host to a number of championship matches, shock returns, and even Brock Lesnar trying to flip the ring over with a tractor. The show was also notable as the first WWE pay-per-view/Premium Live Event to take place without Vince McMahon at the helm.
With Triple H heading up talent relations and creative on the main roster, Stephanie McMahon and Nick Khan have been appointed co-CEO’s.

“This past weekend SummerSlam emanated live on Peacock from Nashville’s Nissan Stadium in front of a crowd of 48,449 and became the most-watched SummerSlam in company history.
During the week we surpassed 90M subscribers and 70B lifetime video views on YouTube, and 18M followers on TikTok. We were also proud to be the first brand that Epic Games rolled out across three games simultaneously: Fall Guys, Rocket League and Fortnite, timed to coincide with our Premium Live Event.
Without all of the WWE Superstars who poured their hearts out inside the ring, our incredible crews and teams behind the scenes, the WWE Universe, and our incredible partners and friends, none of the successes of this past weekend would have been possible.
A special thank you to the Tennessee Titans, Nissan Stadium, Xfinity, Samaritan, Wildhorse Saloon, Pure Life, Cricket Wireless, Nutrabolt, DraftKings, Constellation Brands, Papa Johns, and the entire Nashville LOC.”
NXT up for WWE, the company head to Cardiff, Wales for Clash at the Castle, their first stadium show in the United Kingdom for three decades. The event is scheduled to take place at the Principality Stadium on September 3rd.
