The WWE recently announced that SummerSlam 2012, centered almost entirely around the Brock Lesnar vs. Triple H match, had drawn an impressive 350,000 pay-per-view buys. This got me thinking as to where the event would figure when compared to the biggest financial successes in company history.*
Vince McMahon is regarded as one of the most important figures in the history of pay-per-view sports, and this article will rank the 15 most successful events his company has ever staged.
