Arena Report - Allstate Arena
Tonight, for the 700th edition of RAW, WWE returns to the Allstate Arena in Chicago for the second time this year. On April 3, Shelton Benjamin defeated Chavo Guerrero to retain the Intercontinental Championship. Guerrero was later seen sobbing, admitting he just wasn’t supposed to follow his family's footsteps. Also that night, the Spirit Squad won the World Tag Team Championship from Big Show & Kane.
RAW has made seven visits to the Allstate Arena since 2001; however, WWE’s most memorable broadcasts are in the seven pay-per-view events that took place in Chicago. The Allstate Arena hosted the first WWE pay-per-view event, the Wrestling Classic, on Nov. 7, 1985. Shortly afterward, the arena broadcasted part of WrestleMania 2. Action featured one of WrestleMania’s most memorable matches when NFL stars including William Perry and Ernie Holmes took part in a 20-man battle royal. Dick Butkus and Ed “Too Tall” Jones took on the roles of referees. Also that night in Chicago, the British Bulldogs won the World Tag Team Championship when they defeated the Dream Team.
Survivor Series 1989 was the next major pay-per-view to invade the Allstate Arena. Eight years later, WrestleMania would return to the Windy City with its 13th installment. That night, Undertaker won the WWE Championship when he defeated Sycho Sid and Bret Hart outlasted Steve Austin in a Submission Match. WrestleMania 13 also featured a Chicago Street Fight between Ahmed Johnson & the Legion of Doom and the Nation of Domination.
Chicago also hosted WrestleMania 22 earlier this year. John Cena retained the WWE Championship when he put it on the line against Triple H. Rey Mysterio won the World Heavyweight Championship in a Triple Threat Match against Kurt Angle and Randy Orton. Also, Shawn Michaels squared off against Mr. McMahon in a Grudge Match.
WWE brought Judgment Day 1998 and Backlash 2001 to the Allstate Arena as well. Chicago also hosted WCW Spring Stampede 1994.
The Allstate Arena first opened in 1980 as the Rosemont Horizon. It changed its name with new sponsorship in 1999. In addition to hosting many WWE events, the arena hosted the NCAA men’s basketball tournament in 1987, 1993 and 2005. It also hosts hockey, arena football and DePaul University men’s basketball.
