CEO Vince McMahon had bolstered the popularity of the World Wrestling Federation by the late eighties thanks in part to pay-per-view events like Wrestlmania, Survivor Series, and the Royal Rumble. The success of these pay-per-views prompted McMahon to add another colossal event in the month of August, SummerSlam. Debuting in 1988, SummerSlam was held at one of the world's most prolific venues, Madison Square Garden. An immediate ratings grabber, the pro wrestling extravaganza went on to become one of the biggest annual summer sporting events of the year in the world. From the Ultimate Warrior defeating Rick Rude for the WWF Championship to Steve Austin nailing the Undertaker with the Stone Cold Stoner, SummerSlam has had its share of unforgettable moments.
