Trump Plaza
Trump Plaza is the only venue to host back-to-back WrestleManias (IV and V), with each event holding a unique place in history.

WrestleMania IV was World Wrestling Entertainment's first tournament with the WWE Championship up for grabs. In the finals, Randy Savage defeated Ted DiBiase to capture his first World Wrestling Entertainment Championship. One year later at WrestleMania V, Savage would lose the belt to the person who helped him win it -- Hollywood Hogan.

Trump Plaza has also played host to a number of Heavyweight Championship bouts. Two of the more notable ones include:

Jan. 22, 1988: Mike Tyson knocked out former champion Larry Holmes in Round 4. That night, Tyson did more than retain his title. The win represented a symbolic passing of the torch from one great champion to another.

June 27, 1988: Tyson knocked out Michael Spinks in the most hyped Heavyweight Title fight since Muhammad Ali vs. Joe Frazier.
