For the final Raw on the Road to WrestleMania, Raw returns to the city that hosted the biggest night in sports-entertainment in 2006, Chicago, and the Allstate Arena.

The arena was formerly known as the Rosemont Horizon and under that moniker, hosted the first WWE pay-per-view, the Wrestling Classic. This King of the Ring type tournament was eventually won by Hall of Famer Junkyard Dog. The Rosemont also hosted one-third of WrestleMania 2. (The other parts were held in New York and California.)
WrestleMania 13 also emanated from the Allstate Arena and witnessed Undertaker winning the WWE Championship.

The arena is the permanent home of the Chicago Wolves hockey team, Chicago Rush arena football squad and the DePaul Blue Demons.

For a look inside this historic arena, tune into Raw at 9/8 CT on USA Network. View Comments
