Plans to demolish stadium that hosted two WrestleMania events on hold

Fans that remember WrestleMania VI and WrestleMania X8, the venue that hosted these events might be getting demolished in the not too distant future.

Toronto’s Globe and Mail recently reported that there are plans in place to demolish the Roger’s Center, formerly known as the SkyDome, in the city.

Andrew Garas, director of communications at Rogers, has since issued a statement to local media in Canada. This noted that these plans were put into place before the COVID-19 pandemic. Now, those plans are on hold until after the pandemic. The following was issued:

“Prior to the pandemic, we were exploring options for the stadium but through this year our primary focus has been keeping our customers connected and employees safe, so there is no update on the Rogers Centre to share at this time.”

WrestleMania VI took place in 1990 and had 67,678 in attendance and was headlined by Ultimate Warrior vs Hulk Hogan for the WWE Title.

On the flip side, WrestleMania X8, which took place in 2002, had 68,237 fans also in attendance to see Chris Jericho vs. Triple H in the actual main event, but also witness what many people consider the true main event of Hulk Hogan vs. The Rock.
