Over the past twenty years this bingo hall and multi-purpose building has been called Viking Hall, XPW Arena, Alhambra Arena and most famously the ECW Arena when Extreme Championship Wrestling ran shows here from 1993-2001.

Scenes from The Wrestler where Mickey Rourke faced the Necro Butcher in a bloody match were shot here in 2008 at a Combat Zone Wrestling show.

Although the 331 Club in Northeast Minneapolis was used for the exterior shot of Slippery's bar in Grumpier Old Men, the interior was shot a few blocks away at Mayslack's. Rumor has it that the bartender, seen here as Sophia Loren walks in, is in fact the owner.

Grumpy Old Men and its sequel Grumpier Old Men were both set in Wabasha, Minnesota, although I don't think either movie was shot there. Instead, many of the filming locations were in St. Paul, Stillwater and Faribault. The exterior of Slippery's bar is currently the location of the 331 Club in Northeast Minneapolis.

The interior was filmed at nearby Mayslack's

from wrestling at the chase posted in pro wrestling by chewing_the_scenery

The tv show Wrestling at the Chase was taped here at the Chase Park Plaza Hotel and it aired in St. Louis on channel 11 for almost 25 years (1959-1983). It was promoted by Sam Muchnick, president of the St. Louis Wrestling Club and also president of the National Wrestling Alliance, the national promotion that for many years consolidated a majority of the regional promotions under one name.

Ric Flair, Bruiser Brody, Ted DiBiase and many others appeared here at one time. The show aired on Saturday nights and Sunday mornings and was one of St. Louis's highest rated programs.
