WWE recently announced that they would hold their annual Summerslam pay-per-view event at Allegiant stadium, and while a lot of people were happy with the move, some wondered why Sin City got the nod for one of the biggest pay-per-view events of the year. Interestingly enough, it seems to have a lot to do with the Las Vegas economy roaring back to life.

"We know how bad the pandemic hit Las Vegas and the economy there. One of the thoughts we had [at WWE] was to have one of our signature events, SummerSlam, at Allegiant.," WWE President Nick Kahn said in a statement regarding the decision. "I don't believe there have been full fans there yet. We thought a big sell-out crowd in Vegas to help stimulate the economy would be the right thing to do with the city."
