Charlotte Coliseum - Charlotte, NC
Opened in 1988, the Charlotte Coliseum was built to be the home of the NBA's Charlotte Hornets. In its 17 year existence, the $52 million venue was also home of the WNBA's Charlotte Sting, two Arena Football League teams and the University of Charlotte 49ers; it also housed the NBA's Charlotte Bobcats in their inaugural season of 2004-2005.
The site of the 1991 NBA All-Star Game and 1994 NCAA Final Four, the Coliseum also hosted two WWE pay-per-view events. In addition to Judgment Day 2003, the venue hosted Unforgiven in September 1999; that night, Triple H won a Six-Pack Challenge to become WWE Champion for the second time. Charlotte Coliseum has also hosted numerous RAW and SmackDown events, as well as WCW Monday Nitro.
In November 2005, following the completion of the new Charlotte Bobcats Arena, the Charlotte Coliseum was closed for good. It hosted its final event on October 26 of that year, an NBA preseason game between the Bobcats and the Indiana Pacers.
