Most people have heard of the Pontiac Silverdome weather because of the fact that they were a fan of NFL as this was the how of the Detriot Lions football team or maybe a Led Zeppelin concert. However, if you’re a wrestling fan you probably have heard of this arena because this was site of Wrestlemania 3. Sadly today the arena has become a shell of its former shelf it is no longer the arena that held 93,173 people in 1987 for Wrestlemania. The Silverdome is now an abandoned landmark in the city of Detriot as Lions left in 2002 and the building hasn't held an event since 2011.
Sadly a 2012 snowstorm made the roof of the arena cave in exposing the inside of the arena to the elements. For 20 year the Pontiac Silverdome held many great sporting events and now sadly it looks more like a giant eye sore. Mother Nature is a powerful and dangerous, it can take great things away in an instant but the one thing Mother Nature take away is the memories. Below are picture of The Silverdome:

I love looking back wrestling's past. I view my job as bring new life to the part of wrestling some people thought was gone.
