This Week in History

On December 10, 2002, Philips Arena hosted the WWE SmackDown. WWE SmackDown started in April of 1999. A few years later in 2002, WWE decided to do some brand extension and came up with WWE Raw. WWE wanted to split SmackDown into two separate rosters, storylines, and figures to rival each other.

About eight years later, still with all the excitement and action, Atlanta will host the extension, WWE Raw on April 4th. This will be the first Monday Night Raw after the Wrestlemania 27 held in Atlanta at the Georgia Dome. Come see the superstar champions such as The Miz, Daniel Bryan, Santino Marella, and Vladimir Kozlov. Tickets go on sale for general public on Saturday, December 11th at 10 AM for WWE Raw at Philips Arena through Ticketmaster.
