Arena Report - WesBanco Arena
Tonight, SmackDown invades the WesBanco Arena in Wheeling, W. Va. Formerly known as the Wheeling Civic Center, the WesBanco Arena has been the host of several big WWE events in the past.
The last time WWE television emanated from Wheeling was the March 9, 1998 edition of RAW. That night, D-Generation X took out Stone Cold Steve Austin after the Texas Rattlesnake interrupted a match between Triple H and Savio Vega. Also that night, Undertaker returned to confront his brother Kane leading up to their match at WrestleMania XIV.
In the summer of 1996, Wheeling was a hotbed of sports-entertainment, hosting four editions of RAW as well as a WCW Monday Nitro. While Nitro saw Lex Luger & Sting defend the WCW Tag Team Championship against Ric Flair & Arn Anderson, the four RAWs saw the first two rounds of a tournament for the Intercontinental Championship that was eventually won by Marc Mero. Also on one of the RAWs, Shawn Michaels defended the WWE Championship against his biggest challenger, Yokozuna.
Wheeling also hosted several episodes of Superstars and Wrestling Challenge in the late-1980s and early-1990s. Notable matches include Demolition defeating Arn Anderson & Tully Blanchard to regain the World Tag Team Championship on an episode of Superstars in November 1989 and the debut of Saba Simba on a November 1990 Wrestling Challenge.
