There’s a story up at northjersey.com noting that the Izod Center may be closing at the end of the month. That’s a problem for WWE because that is the site for this year’s SummerSlam. WWE is running a show there on the 24th of this month as well.
The New Jersey Sports and Exposition Authority Board will be asked to approve a plan to move shows scheduled for February and March to the Prudential Center. The opening of the Prudencial Center and the Barclays Center in Brooklyn along with the loss of major sports franchises was a major blow for the Izod Center.
Since 2007, the Izod Center has lost the New Jersey Devils, Seton Hall basketball, and the New Jersey Nets. If this happens then I could see WWE moving SummerSlam to the Prudential Center or the Barclays Center.
