Tommy Dreamer: born in ECW Arena in South Philadelphia
By Tommy Dreamer
Major news hit the wrestling world recently with the announcement that the former ECW Arena in South Philadelphia is closing.
Apparently new ownership is coming in and its brass wants to make the arena a venue for larger events, such as concerts and the like. On top of that, they apparently don't want to host professional wrestling or boxing shows there anymore.
Financially, to me, that makes zero sense. If I were a building owner, I would want to have as many renters come into my establishment as humanly possible so I can make money.
I have seen many places do things that do not make sense when it comes to money, but I suppose when you have a lot of money, some things just don't matter. But I digress. This decision has led me to write about the emotional attachment people can have to a building or arena.
