As you may be aware, the famed Spectrum in Philadelphia will close later this year. I would hope (and it would only make sense) that WWE books one more event there before it's too late, since the Spectrum was such a huge part of the WWF's touring in the 70s and 80s. It would have to be a house show or TV taping though. Strangely, the upcoming Night of Champions PPV is being held at the Wachovia Center, not the Spectrum.

My wishlist would include an event, a commemorative magazine and maybe a special on the On Demand channel (a DVD might be too much to ask for).

Sadly, I have no personal memories of the WWF at the Spectrum, despite growing up less than two hours away. I'm sure others here can speak of their favorite memories.

I remember "back in the day" when the week after the WWF was at the Spectrum, you could watch the entire card on PRISM (the local premium movie channel on cable). I hope they'd do SOMETHING, but as I can't recall them doing anything for the Maple Leaf Gardens, I doubt it will happen.

Godspeed, men of the 2nd Bn, 127th Infantry, 32d "Red Arrow" Brigade, Wisconsin Army National Guard! Victory in Iraq!

My favorite PPV from my youth was at the Spectrum:

SummerSlam 1990.

I'll miss the joint.

Only one Concourse in that building? Intermissions must have been a blast.

Hogan, yes. But Rock I think they would want on the UPN show. And they had to split up Rock and Austin, and both are appealing to casual fans.
