Stephanie McMahon sent out an e-mail to members of the media on Friday morning to tout the business success of the WWE SummerSlam 2021 pay-per-view.
In the e-mail, the WWE Chief Brand Officer included various statistics showing the business success achieved by “The Biggest Party of the Summer” at Allegiant Stadium in Las Vegas, Nevada last weekend.
Check out the e-mail and the infographic with the WWE SummerSlam 2021 business stats below.
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.
Thank you to our friends and partners who made this success possible, please see below/attached for more details.
