When the IZOD Center decided to shut down and go out of business, WWE lost their home for the next Summerslam. Vince McMahon and his staff went about looking for a new venue without much of a panic in their voice. The company knew that they wanted to keep the event in the New York and New Jersey area. The state of the art Barclays Center was heavily rumored as the obvious replacement, and that is now officially the case.

A minor headache has sprung up for Vince McMahon recently. There are reports going around that the IZOD Center, the former home of the New Jersey Nets, is on the verge of being shut down and demolished. That is a problem for WWE because that is the booked venue for the next Summerslam pay per view. Since we are several months away from the show taking place, the belief is that management will simply find a new location.
