LOS ANGELES, CA – August 15, 2011 – WWE announced today that the hottest event of the summer, SummerSlam, attracted a sold out crowd of 17,404 fans last night at the Staples Center in Los Angeles, grossing more than $1 million. This marks the highest grossing SummerSlam ever held at the Staples Center.

Both fans and celebrities alike witnessed the high flying action of SummerSlam, along with musical performances by three time Grammy Award winner Cee Lo Green and Tool’s Adam Jones. Notable celebrities in attendance included actor Kellan Lutz, Los Angeles Lakers’ Ron Artest, Dancing With The Stars’ Cheryl Burke, Karina Smirnoff and Lacey Schwimmer, Jenny McCarthy, Rose McGowan, Michael Clarke Duncan and Morris Chestnut, among others.

SummerSlam made WWE history, as Alberto Del Rio shocked the world by cashing in his “Money In The Bank” contract to become the new undisputed WWE Champion, seconds after CM Punk scored a controversial victory over John Cena. Tonight on Raw at 9 PM ET on USA Network, Rey Mysterio will get the chance to regain the Championship against Del Rio.
