I doubt it would work for a mania. Syracuse is not a big market. On the monster truck front, they can try it. No shame in trying something that can either work out or not.Where did you find out that WWE is now being allowed at the Carrier Dome? Hmmmmm perhaps Wrestlemania 27?!?! That place is huge. Monster truck shows at the Carrier dome would be amazing! Here's hoping!
Yeah and there needs to be pitch for the venue to hold it. The city of Glendale was pitching for it for an entire year and half before the date was announced. Just about every city to house WrestleMania are now bidding for it like the SuperBowl. The only two who won't need to are Los Angeles and New York.While Syracuse is a small market, it could definitely handle a Wrestlemania. Central NY could use that economic boost and the Carrier Dome could hold about 70,000-80,000 for a Wrestlemania. I mean let's face it, people from all over the world travel for it.
As for a Monster Truck show, I think it would do great there. Whether Chris Arel comes down from Canada for a huge show or the USHRA puts on a new stadium show. Worth a shot!
The Kingdome was just a thin shell structured dome. It wasn't an air-based dome. Source wikipedia.The Silverdome in Pontiac was and they had a lot of monsters there. Kingdome too? I had wondered about that comment too but thought I was just missing something. At least all of us were missing the same thing?
Yes the RCA dome was an airlocked dome. I never made it to a show in the dome, but I marched there a number of times for band. Always was a cool place, I'll miss it. Lucas Oil is HUGE though, can't wait to make it to a show in the future!
the kingdome had a concrete roof not a think shell structured dome. i had attended numerous mariner's games during the summers i went up to fort lewis to visit my brother and i had the chance to walk down on the field on time. i can still remember looking straight up and just looking at the roof.The Kingdome was just a thin shell structured dome.

Been there, done that. Remember seeing Kirk Dabney there...The last indoor monster truck events in Syracuse were at the tiny Onondaga County War Memorial in the early 1990s
