Arena Report - Ford Center
RAW will come to you tonight from the Ford Center in Oklahoma City. The event comes just over a year after RAW Superstars' last trip to the Ford Center for Unforgiven 2005.
Unforgiven featured a memorable WWE Championship match between John Cena and Kurt Angle. Eric Bischoff ruled Cena could not retain his championship despite the match ending in a DQ. He immediately regretted that decision when Cena FUed him. Also that night, Lance Cade and Trevor Murdoch won the World Tag Team Championship and Ric Flair defeated Carlito to earn the Intercontinental Championship.
Earlier in 2005, RAW broadcasted from the Ford Center on Jan. 24. The night was filled with Royal Rumble qualifying matches, but the main event pitted Randy Orton against Ric Flair. The "Nature Boy" fell victim to the RKO and a three-count, after which the Legend Killer taunted Triple H.
The Ford Center, which celebrated its third birthday this past June, seats nearly 20,000 fans in four levels and features about 3,500 seats between club seating and suites. It stands across from the Cox Convention Center and has served as home to the New Orleans / Oklahoma City Hornets NBA team. It also hosts minor league hockey and arena football.
Will the McMahons return to RAW in Oklahoma City after nursing their injuries? Will RAW fans get a better idea of who will be the next Women's Champion? Find out all this and more tonight at 9/8 CT on USA.
