From WWE:

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.
