More Backstage News on WWE Moving SummerSlam to NYC
According to F4WOnline.com, there was speculation that WWE wants to move SummerSlam to the New York/New Jersey area because they want more space than the Staples Center can offer in LA, but if next year’s event does take place at either the IZOD Center or the Barclays Center, that’s not the case.
Both the IZOD Center in New Jersey and the Barclays Center in Brooklyn are about the same size as the Staples Center, with the Barclays Center actually holding less people.
Former WCW Star Wants One Last Match
As we reported last week, former WWE and WCW star Konnan is having a hip replacement on Thursday.
Konnan noted on Twitter that after he has his surgery and recovers, he plans to have one last match, most likely for Mexico’s AAA promotion for which he currently works.
