It looks like former WWE announcer Jonathan Coachman's viral campaign to bring his current employer ESPN to SummerSlam in Brooklyn was a success.

Coachman said Saturday night on his verified Twitter account that ESPN's SportsCenter would be at Aug. 23's SummerSlam at the Barclays Center.

Coach tweeted earlier in the evening that he would be at SummerSlam.

In response to a Newsday tweet about whether he would be on air, he replied, "I'm not going just to be a spectator. #sportscenter."

On June 30 Coachman tweeted, '"SportsCenter On The Road at Summerslam." How does that sound. Show my bosses the power of @wwe fans by retweeting as many times as possible". That tweet was retweeted more than 3,000 times.
