SummerSlam is one of the WWE's most famous and long-running pay-per-view events, and one of the 'Big Four'; the three others are WrestleMania, the Royal Rumble and Survivor Series. Much like 'Mania, it is considered a major "transition" PPV as major feuds and storylines tend to begin, end, or otherwise have a major element added to it at SummerSlam. Notable as being the only one of the 'Big Four' PPVs to take place outside North America; SummerSlam 1992 took place in the Wembley Arena in London. Since 2009, SummerSlam has been held at the Staples Center in Los Angeles, California.Has recently been billed as the "WrestleMania of the summer" with matches frequently being part of the big storylines of the season from the WWE clash with the Nexus to the second John Cena vs. CM Punk bout in 2011.
