Source www.prowrestling.comPwinsiders.com:


    The WWE will confirm later today that the official location for SummerSlam 2004, which will take place on August 15th will be held in Toronto, Canada.

    There were reports that the WWE may be looking to hold the event in England, but apparently in the end they decided on Toronto. It will be held at the Air Canada Centre.






i cant believe they chose the ACC over skydome didnt they want to make up for the small crowd at WMXX?

They made more money off that smaller building then most big dome shows.

As a fan, I dislike Skydome shows because the acostics are horrible on TV.

The Skydome is being used that day for a Toronto Blue Jays game.

Yes I did! How ABOUT that? In your face, England!!!
Seriously, I'm very excited about this one. ACC isn't massive or anything, but it's not a bad size, either. They've certainly made Raw's and SmackDown's look big enough in the past, and even the WCW Mayhem PPV.
Truth be told, I don't think they could have sold out SkyDome at this stage....

Anywhere in UK would have been goodie. But TO is only a cheap flight away - less than 75 return soon!
So if in TO do we see Trish from Tampa with Chris-tian and Benoit back from Canada or keeping his 15 minute entrance and so on. I hear Lillian Garcia is still in Kansas doing his entrance.
UK/Europe could have sold out a biggie venue easy.

Awesome! I'm going to Summerslam! I've got to start thinking of a good sign now.

ACC is a much better choice for this kind of event than the SkyDome. And BullDog's right, I doubt they could fill the Dome for anything other than another WrestleMania, if even that (not that the Jays are filling it, either... you could probably have SummerSlam in the Dome with a Jays' game going and it wouldn't bother that many people), and, well, the ACC gets the fans closer to the action, which is good for us!

Hell, it might actually HELP the Jays this season.

I think using a smaller venue also helps the grandeur that WM brings..by being the only event that they would even think to hold in a large venue like Safeco, the Skydome, or the Astrodome.

Wasn't that a SummerSlam commercial a few years back? I remember the commercial had someone running through the outfield wall. Maybe Edge?

I find it interesting that the WWE brought another PPV to Toronto considering half the crowd walked out of WM18 during the HHH/Jericho match.

Half the crowd may have walked out on the "Stephanie McMahon AT RINGSIDE while two guys fight" main event, but that still left 35-40 thousand people in the building...people who were either exhausted from the Hogan/Rock match or sleeping from the womens title match that followed it.

As many things as I don't like about Toronto, it's a fantastic place to watch a wrestling card. It guarantees WWE a smokin' hot crowd for SummerSlam, and a venue where the fans will undoubtedly be willing to pay augmented ticket prices for the show. That's really all you can ask for.
