In 1991, WWE cited ‘bomb threats’ and other security reasons for changing the venue for the Showcase of Immortals. If we talk about the paper, WWE seems justified with their reasons. Considering that the pay-per-view was built around Sgt. Slaughter. He is an Iraqi sympathizer at the peak of the Gulf War. However according to the mainstream media outlets such as SLAM! Sports of Canada has dismissed the claim from WWE.

Some other media reports claim that change in venue is due to poor ticket sales. It shows the inability of WWE to fill out the 100,000 Seater LA Memorial Coliseum. With the rising popularity of AEW it seems that WWE will have to struggle in the future as well.

WWE EVP Bruce Prichard has talked about the struggle to sell out tickets for the LA Memorial Coliseum in 1991. However he claims that they have received some bomb threats earlier. With this podcast “Something to Wrestle With” podcast Bruce stated that it is difficult to hold the event at the same venue. Even if the stadium was sold out the scope was difficult for the police to carry out the safety plans.  All the fans and wrestlers must be safe while they are inside the stadium.
