WWE SummerSlam was held for the first time inside Madison Square Garden in August 1988.
Over the years, SummerSlam has become known as the second-biggest pay-per-view that WWE puts on each year. Iconic matches such as Bret Hart vs. The British Bulldog and The Rock vs. Brock Lesnar have taken place at this event.
SummerSlam is not only a fitting end to the summer season, it also gives the WWE Universe a chance to see the top Superstars in the WWE go head-to-head. Over the last 10 years, that has certainly been the case.
John Cena is scheduled to defend his WWE title against Daniel Bryan in less than two weeks at the Staples Center in Los Angeles. Where will that match rank among the best main events in SummerSlam history?
Here, we will focus on the last decade of the event. From the quality of the in-ring battle to the entertainment behind the story that led to the match, the main events from every SummerSlam since 2003 have been ranked for your reading pleasure.
