Barclays, WWE and NYC & Company announced an agreement Monday morning that will keep WWE's second biggest show of the year in Brooklyn in August 2016 and 2017. Barclays hosted SummerSlam last month after six years in Los Angeles, selling out three WWE events in consecutive nights -- WWE's NXT developmental brand, SummerSlam and Monday Night Raw. WWE will stick to that concept the next two years, with the NXT-SummerSlam-Raw trifecta going to Barclays Aug. 20-22 in 2016 and Aug. 19-21 in 2017. This year's SummerSlam received an extra jolt of mainstream buzz when recently retired "Daily Show" host Jon Stewart hosted the event and hit John Cena with a chair during his World Heavyweight Title vs. United States Title bout with Seth Rollins.
