Personally, I don't think that toronto should get summerslam. just one month ago they got smackdown and they got wrestlemania in 2002. i live in vancouver,BC,Canada and i dunno if America gets the commercials that canada gets for all events coming to canada but every canadian city with a big enough arena has gotten a televised event and the only thing that vancouver got this year was two lousy house shows. hopefully vince brings something down here. it would have been krazy if vancouver hosted summerslam. I mean, van-city has better arenas than toronto. we have GM place and BC place which can hold 70,000. GM place can hold 21,000 and is much better than the air canada center. even the pacific coliseum or for you americans, the PNE coliseum is even better that the ACC.
Let's see... The best wrestling venues in Canada are probably as follows (although regional bitching may vary things):
-Pengrowth Saddledome: The home of the Hart Family is home to possibly the hottest crowds in Canada. -SkyDome: Bigger crowds usually equal hotter crowds, and SkyDome has the biggest crowds in Canada. -Bell Centre: All you have to know is that it's Montreal. -Air Canada Center: Take the hot crowds from the SkyDome and compact them into half the space... Possibly the nicest arena in the country. -Rexall Center: Cooler crowds that Calgary, but usually just as passionate. -General Motors Place: Bigger venue than the Pacific Coliseum. -Pacific Coliseum.

They were coming to Toronto before the ACC was up and doing awkward Dome shows. And don't forget Maple Leaf Gardens. Toronto is a wrestling town, with a lot of wrestling history. Vancouver isn't. That said, I don't see why they don't go there more, I've loved all the shows coming out of there.

On 1wrestling.com, they have a story about WWE spending 8 million on a ad agency to develop a campaign to draw back the older fans in the over 30 demo. Could this mean the return of the older stars for one last run?
