Clarification On Record Set By WWE SummerSlam 2023

Clarification On Record Set By WWE SummerSlam 2023 WWE

Some clarification has emerged on a record set by WWE for SummerSlam 2023, ahead of this summer’s premium live event.

This year’s Biggest Party of the Summer will take place on August 5, at Ford Field in Detroit, Michigan.

With tickets for the event going on sale last week, Sports Business Journal, has reported that WWE has already sold 32,000 tickets for the show four months out.

Per this report, this marked the largest day-one sale for any stadium event in WWE history, excluding WrestleMania events.

Dave Meltzer has now clarified that this is only true about US WWE shows, with Clash at the Castle 2022 and SummerSlam 1992 both having bigger first day sales.

Meltzer noted the following on Wrestling Observer Radio:

“Not a US record, it’s a US non-WrestleMania record, so there’s WrestleMania shows that have beaten that number. But none of the Royal Rumbles or SummerSlam in the United States have ever beaten that number.

“It’s actually the third biggest first-day… first day sales is kind of a weird term now, because the first day of sales is actually the third day of sales…

“But after the quote ‘first day of sales’, it was the biggest for any non-WrestleMania WWE show with the exception of Clash at the Castle and Wembley Stadium (SummerSlam 1992). So actually two shows in the UK.

“So it’s a great number, that’s for sure.”
