Yes I did! How ABOUT that? In your face, England!!! Seriously, I'm very excited about this one. ACC isn't massive or anything, but it's not a bad size, either. They've certainly made Raw's and SmackDown's look big enough in the past, and even the WCW Mayhem PPV. Truth be told, I don't think they could have sold out SkyDome at this stage....
Anywhere in UK would have been goodie. But TO is only a cheap flight away - less than £75 return soon! So if in TO do we see Trish from Tampa with Chris-tian and Benoit back from Canada or keeping his 15 minute entrance and so on. I hear Lillian Garcia is still in Kansas doing his entrance. UK/Europe could have sold out a biggie venue easy.

Awesome! I'm going to Summerslam! I've got to start thinking of a good sign now.
ACC is a much better choice for this kind of event than the SkyDome. And BullDog's right, I doubt they could fill the Dome for anything other than another WrestleMania, if even that (not that the Jays are filling it, either... you could probably have SummerSlam in the Dome with a Jays' game going and it wouldn't bother that many people), and, well, the ACC gets the fans closer to the action, which is good for us!

Half the crowd may have walked out on the "Stephanie McMahon AT RINGSIDE while two guys fight" main event, but that still left 35-40 thousand people in the building...people who were either exhausted from the Hogan/Rock match or sleeping from the womens title match that followed it.
As many things as I don't like about Toronto, it's a fantastic place to watch a wrestling card. It guarantees WWE a smokin' hot crowd for SummerSlam, and a venue where the fans will undoubtedly be willing to pay augmented ticket prices for the show. That's really all you can ask for.
It's a wonder how quickly the Festus character runs its course once he's separated from his tag team partner a few months after they debuted. I don't see this new gimmick having a much longer shelf life.
