The Dallas Sportatorium appears to be defunct, sadly. I did not add Papa John's Stadium, because it's an outdoor venue. I would love to have an outdoor show, but this is mostly medium to large indoor arenas as I noted above.

Ugh. Well, when Frost went looking for Arenas, I went looking for the Arena post at IGN. I found it, and organized it, but Frost beat me to the gun. I'm not sure about all of these arenas, and I believe some of them that I got off that post (By NBK_Josh_Tupper) are football stadiums, which could still be used for big PPVs and stuff. But anyways.... here is the list, which is probably around 160+ Arenas.

Oklahoma:
Myriad Arena - Oklahoma City, Oklahoma
Tulsa Convention Center - Tulsa, Oklahoma


Since i live in Oklahoma City let me update that for you Judge.

Myriad Arena is now the Cox Bussiness Service Arena
About 5 blocks away from that arena is the new and improved Ford Center in Oklahoma City. It's big enough to hold a WWE PPV in there, so here is hoping for a rumble!

Good job in combining the lists Judge, but I think some renaming might trick us up. Just scanning the list, the Firstar Center in Cinci is now the US Bank Arena, so in essense it's listed twice.

The Molson Center in Montreal has been renamed into the Bell Center, so no need in naming it twice.

WCW used to do shows there. I remember because I used to watch WCW from 96 to it's death, as well as WWF from 97 onward.

I remember because I asked if I could go and I wasn't allowed to by my parents.

If anyone cares (and I am sure you don't)...

It is the "Earvin J. Nutter Center at Wright State University" in Dayton, Ohio

We also have Hara Arena (a little smaller) and University of Dayton Arena (about the same as the Nutter Center).

For a JL show, there is the Montgomery County Fairgrounds Coliseum (seats maybe 200 on a good night. No a/c, barely any heat, no room for a lighting rig).

Ah, yes, for the JL there's the Burt Flickinger Center in Buffalo, NY. ECW used to tape there.

Kouraken (sp?) Hall in Japan.

I know FMW and BJW have run there. I think 13,500 seats? Some importance, since it's in the Fire Pro games.

And if it was, here is my response...

It was my birthday. I liked the image of me (Chris Hicks) going to a SWF show on his birthday. Besides, it made for an interesting little "Breaking Kayfabe" that nobody read...
