USA #1 WOOOOO!
What are all the events that the WWF/E has held outdoors
Off the top of my head I can think of WMIX, WMXXIV, summerslam 92 and that big event in Toronto in 86 I think. What am I missing? Did they ever have an outdoor Raw like WCW did for their spring break Nitros?

Toronto Ontario, Exhibition Place (pre-skydom, aircanada centre days)
they had outdore events, one of them being "The Big Event". They may have also opened all, half or part of the skydome on nicer days, same goes for all those other doms (baseball stadiums) that open on there own.
It seems like a thing of the past, not done to much anymore it seems...
