Stephanie McMahon Thanks Fans For ‘Record Breaking’ SummerSlam Success

Professional wrestling would be nothing without the fans, and Stephanie McMahon says it’s thanks to them that SummerSlam was a huge success.

WWE’s Chief Branding Officer Stephanie McMahon sent out a company-wide email and took the time to thank the WWE universe for this past weekend’s ‘record breaking’ SummerSlam success.

From McMahon:

This past weekend, WWE held our biggest event of 2021, SummerSlam, emanating from Allegiant Stadium in Las Vegas with a record-breaking crowd of over 51,000 fans. More people watched Saturday’s event live across Peacock and WWE Network than any other SummerSlam in our company’s history, marking a 55% increase over 2020. SummerSlam also trended #1 worldwide, ahead of Pacquiao vs. Ugas and NFL preseason football.

Leading up to the event new multi-year partnership announcements were made, bringing WWE together with Spotify, Bill Simmons and The Ringer to launch an exclusive audio network, and MLB to offer sports fans team-inspired WWE Championship replica titles and accessories. In addition, WWE partnered with Bitski to drop WWE’s second edition of NFTs inspired by WWE Superstar John Cena.
