The Peacock streaming service has finally added rewind and pause buttons for the live streams of WWE events. This began on Saturday night with SummerSlam on Roku and iPad.
The announced attendance for Saturday night’s WWE SummerSlam pay-per-view event was 51,326. WWE tends to inflate the numbers for WrestleMania and SummerSlam so take this for what it’s worth.
WWE is currently looking to hire a new Analyst, Creative & Talent Analytics. You can find more details at this link.
During Saturday’s special SummerSlam themed episode of WWE’s “The Bump”, Rey Mysterio commented on SummerSlam being just as big as WrestleMania. He said,
“100%. I’ve always enjoyed watching SummerSlam as much as I would watching a WrestleMania. For some reason, it always caught my attention, and to have been able to face Kurt Angle, you know, from my first pay-per-view inside WWE was amazing. You don’t know how nervous I was going in there competing against Kurt, especially because he had several opponents to pick from, to feud with, and I was the chosen one. So I had to make sure that I went out there and I gave it all. Just put it on the line and we just had great chemistry. That was day one from something bigger yet to come.”
