For those unfamiliar with the venue – Convention Hall has been home to pro wrestling for decades. It housed many a WWWF and WWF house show back in the day, with the final being July 1, 1992 which saw “Macho Man” Randy Savage and Sgt. Slaughter defeat Ric Flair and The Mountie in the main event.

Since then it has been the site of several massive ECW PPV’s including the infamous “Living Dangerously ’98” which saw New Jack perform a balcony dive, and Taz and Asbury native Bam Bam Bigelow fall through the ring. Recently, the venue has been home to several TNA houseshows.
