Target Center - Minneapolis, MN

Taking 27 months to build at a cost of $104 million, the Target Center in downtown Minneapolis opened its doors on October 13, 1990. Home of the NBA's Minnesota Timberwolves and the WNBA's Minnesota Lynx, the Target Center is one of only two arenas with a completely movable floor, and was also the first major arena in America to be designated completely smoke-free.

The Target Center has been the site of many memorable WWE moments as well. It was the site of SummerSlam 1999; in the main event, then-Minnesota Governor Jesse Ventura refereed a Triple Threat Match that saw Mankind defeat Triple H and Stone Cold Steve Austin to win the WWE Championship.

Also, on November 13, 2005, the day of Eddie Guerrero's death, the Target Center was the site of the WWE Supershow that paid tribute to Latino Heat's legacy. The venue has also hosted several other RAW and SmackDown events, as well as WCW Monday Nitro.
