Royal Farms Arena

Recommended Posts

That arena is so disguisting. Yes it needs to be torn down. Having a terrible arena definitely costs us good concerts each year. I would like some better shows to come through.

 

With that said, an old dirty arena makes a perfect venue for a wrestling show :) I always have a blast when I go see Raw there.

Best memory there.... I was there with my two cousins for a WCW house show. I noticed a huge guy with an Afro sitting 3 rows ahead of us. It was JO with Ray Lewis next to him. This was in like 98 pre Superbowl. I agree with Cleetz the wrestling shows were fun. Specially rushing the gate to get a high five from the wrestlers.

 

So with the RoFo Arena..... it is called "The Big Chicken Box"?

When WCW was around Baltimore would host the Great American Bash nearly every year. Most wrestlers will tell you that Baltimore is one of the best wrestling towns, up there with Philly, NYC, Chicago, Atlanta and Nola. Although they openly admit the Baltimore Arena is crap, it has a nostalgic feeling of the old venues from the territorial days (sticking with nostalgia; someone stated on the Fan that the Baltimore Arena is one of the last remaining venues that the Beatles played in). Even today I've been to WWE Raw in DC and Baltimore. The DC show is boring and tame, whereas the Baltimore show is very rowdy. An indy promotion, Ring of Honor, is actually owned by Sinclair Broadcasting based in Hunt Valley. Those shows are very rowdy on TV! Ring of Honor is coming to the Royal Farms Arena soon, I want to check it out.

Interesting tidbit here is that Royal Farms negotiated a first rights of negotiation for any new or refurbished arena in Baltimore.

I grew up near a really dirty and poorly run Royal Farms. Even though I live near a new clean one, I just can't get any food there.

I grew up down the street from one that closes its lobby at night and only serves through a glass window opening at the front of the store.

 

I've never seen another one with this.

Nor have I, nice.

 

The porn selection at the one near where I grew up was huge and on display for all to see. When I was 15 it was funny.

Funny. I don't know too many dirty ones around now, but my wife still has the same association... She literally gags when I mention a craving for their food. It's a nice one time a summer treat, makes me feel liker I don't have to care.

Yeah I was at the Great American Bash (The Macho Man/Sid Vicious one). The arena is small so I always thought my seats were good to see the action. Some great history in there. My dad talked about seeing Jimmy Hendricks/Zeppelin there.

I went to two WWE shows there. Once I guess in 86 and the other was around 90. The main event in the first was Hogan and Bundy.

Hacksaw Jim Duggan was there and while I was not a fan of him on tv - he was great live.

Little known, nikoli volkoff lives not to far from Perry hall, sunshine and Harford rd area, I was his former UPS guy :) he was a great guy
