McLemore Sportatorium, 1953-2003, Dallas Texas

Home of both weekly wrestling shows and the Big D Jamboree, a country music showcase. The arena also held boxing events and concerts featuring up-and-coming rock stars (including, most notably, an early performance by Bruce Springsteen in 1974). In early 1966, McLemore's promotion was taken over by wrestler Jack Adkisson , who was known in the ring as Fritz Von Erich. Adkisson's promotion, which became known in the early 1980s as World Class Championship Wrestling and featured his sons (the Von Erich brothers) as its main stars, was the most famous and successful wrestling federation to run regularly at the Dallas Sportatorium.
