Continental Airlines Arena - East Rutherford, NJ

The Continental Airlines Arena is well-known for big-time sporting events, so it was only fitting that WWE brought SummerSlam to the venue in 1989 as well as 1997. The New Jersey Nets, New Jersey Devils and the Seton Hall Men's Basketball team all call the arena home. While there, the Devils have won three Stanley Cups in nine years (1995, 2000, 2003) and the Nets have made it to the NBA Finals twice (2002, 2003). The NBA All-Star Game in 1982, the NHL All-Star Game in 1984 and the NCAA Men's Final Four in 1996 were also all held in the arena.

Several world-famous musical acts have also played the Continental Airlines Arena including Bruce Springsteen and the E-Street Band, Billy Joel, Elton John, Eric Clapton, Bon Jovi, Madonna, Eminem and U2.
