For some reason they keep going back to Long Island, which in my opinion is the deadest/silent crowds I've seens.. But I do think they sell the arena well

Rosemont's not much smaller than the UC when configured for wrestling. Plus Rosemont's a hell of a lot easier to get to.
Anyway, my thought upon looking at that list was: Duh!
Of course they go to those cities the most! You pretty much just named the ten or so largest cities/metro areas in the US. More people=bigger, better facilities=more money and happier workers. Sometimes, I'm honestly amazed that they bother to put shows on in places like Little Rock and Oklahoma. With their TV deal and marketing they really don't have too, all they would have to do then is trim up the roster a bit to a TV roster.
Anyway, Milwaukee and St. Louis should be on that list too. They go there at least once a year, usually twice. Plus, those are great crowds.

Yeah baby! San Jose does get the WWF here about 3 times a year. I don't know if it is a coinincedence or not but the WWF always puts on a rockn' show with memorable moments:

RR 98's Casket match(the one were Michaels suffered his injury)
The JR is RAW commentary table deal
Gerry and Pat as the LOD
Eddy Guerrero debuts the Mamacita song!!
The awesome Angle Austin match on 01/08/01
Patterson leaving Rocky's dressing room during a Rock promo
Jericho/Benoit vs HHH/Austin
SummerSlam 01 other stuff I can't remember

They always have good shows here

    How could I forget Hartford it is right down the road from Stamford.

Amazingly enough they don't come through here that often. The last real show was the May 8th Smackdown. I thought it would be one of the things I wouldn't mind about living out here.

Dallas and Houston have long wrestling histories. Everyone 20 and above actually watched it EVERY weekend when Mid South was around. There was a 5k seat arena (I am estimating) that used to be packed every week for wrestling before the WWF killed the territories. In Houston they even had TV for the local wrestling. Dallas was the same way.

But the WWF doesn't really come here that aften. We have only had 2 PPVs, "No way out of Texas" and "WMX7". The last time they came was for a house show on a Sunday afternoon. It was right after HHH's return. We have had 1 Smackdown and about 6 RAWs, including the one after Sept. 11th when Steph made that horrible promo. I wish they would come more often. The crowd is usually hot here and appreciates actual wrestling over anything else. But We will always be known for the birth of the Ministry, when UT "Marked" Mideon in a ceremony that lasted about 30 minutes. Also Ryan Shamrock debuted here. The RAW after Mick Foley's title win was here too. It doesn't hurt that Stone Cold, UT and Booker T all were born here in Houston.

About the whole "You Suck" Sing along with Angle's theme, the first time I remember hearing it (and CRZ made a point in his recap) was the Smackdown taping in KC right before No Way Out. I think our KC fans heard Angle's music that night at least 5 times (he was facing The Rock at NWO and he was pissed about Rocky's new music video, and played his over and over) and just started singing.

I'm not sure how we rated a PPV here in KC, as Kemper was barely 2/3 full for the RAW after No Mercy last year. I went to No Mercy and Raw, and damn, that St. Louis crowd was so much bigger than KC.

Here in Pittsburgh we seem to get both a RAW and a SD! every year and a PPV every other year.

I think our best moments were Foley/UT HiTC and the arrival of the Radicalz.

I think it safe to now add Providence RI to the list because of the name of the arena. "The Dunkin Dounuts Center"

Vince will do anythhing for free food.

Tulsa used to be a big wrestling stronghold too. But honestly, I think the only reason they come here today is due to JR's Oklahoma roots. Though that doesn't explain why we had a Nitro and a Thunder here. If I remember right, I think the year we got all the big shows was around the time of the big wrestling boom when they were having shows everywhere. But I think there's only been that one RAW in Tulsa--they had a house show last year but that was it.
I don't know about OKC, but Tulsa's biggest weakness is that they don't have a venue that can hold a whole lot of people. Then again, that probably makes for a hotter crowd in some respects. The city government keeps trying to pass development plans that would expand our facilities, but everyone keeps voting them down. Until we get something like that passed, we're always going to be on the second or third tier for big events.

The reason the WWF visited the South a lot last year was because they finally could. For years WCW had a contract on most of the buildings in the South, like Greenville, SC and places like that, that would only allow WCW to run there, thus the WWF couldn't. Along with WCW came the rights to those buildings again.

Plus, if you are trying to get a WCW Invasion angle over, isn't it best to take it to where WCW was still popular in its demise? One of must think If WCW had debuted in Greenville instead of Tacoma it might have been a different story. But who knows?

You forgot about Burmingham, Alabama. It seems like they're there every month.

Add Los Angeles to that list as both Wrestlemania 2 and 7 were at the LA Sports Arena.
