With SummerSlam 2017 roughly six weeks away, tickets for one of the WWE’s hallmark events are shaping up to be the most affordable of any date in the event’s three-year run at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, NY.
The average resale price for a ticket to this year’s SummerSlam is $233. Here is how that compares to past SummerSlam events:
