Arena Report - STAPLES Center
Tonight's SmackDown comes to WWE fans from the STAPLES Center in Los Angeles. It will be WWE's second appearance there this week.
The last time WWE was at the STAPLES Center was on April 3, 2005 for WrestleMania 21. John Cena won his first WWE Championship when he hit JBL with the FU and pinned him. The World Heavyweight Championship also changed hands that night when Batista defeated Triple H after a Batista Bomb.
WWE had another memorable night at the STAPLES Center at Unforgiven on Sept. 22, 2002. Trish Stratus beat Molly Holly to win the Women's Championship. Also, Triple H retained the World Heavyweight Championship against Rob Van Dam when Ric Flair interfered and hit RVD. The main event was one of the craziest matches in WWE history. Undertaker and Brock Lesnar received a double disqualification when their contest grew so intense that the referee became a casualty.
On May 16, 2004, Judgment Day came to the STAPLES Center as Eddie Guerrero defended his WWE Championship against John Bradshaw Layfield. John Cena retained his United States Championship against Rene Dupree and Chavo Guerrero won the Cruiserweight Championship with one arm tied behind his back when he defeated Jacqueline.
The STAPLES Center, which opened in October of 1999, seats up to 20,000 people. Nearly four million people visit the center every year for one of their massive events. The only arena in the United States that hosts five professional sports teams, the STAPLES Center is home to the Los Angeles Clippers and the Los Angeles Lakers of the NBA. It also hosts WNBA's Los Angeles Sparks, NHL's Los Angeles Kings and an arena football team. The STAPLES Center's biggest events include the 2000 Democratic National Convention, the annual Grammy Awards since 2000, the 2004 Pacific Ten Conference Men's Basketball Tournament and the Summer X Games since 2003.
