Scotiabank Arena, formerly named Air Canada Centre, is a multi-purpose indoor sporting arena located on Bay Street in downtown Toronto, Ontario, Canada.

The arena is popularly known as the ACC or the Hangar (the latter nickname coming from its sponsorship by Air Canada). It is the home of the Toronto Maple Leafs of the National Hockey League (NHL), the Toronto Raptors of the National Basketball Association (NBA), and the Toronto Rock of the National Lacrosse League (NLL). It was also home to the Toronto Phantoms of the Arena Football League (AFL) during their brief existence. The ACC is the 11th busiest arena in the world.

The centre has hosted many World Wrestling Entertainment events over the years. In 2004, it hosted that year's WWE SummerSlam. In 2006, it hosted WWE Unforgiven 2006 headlined by Toronto native Edge against John Cena. It has also hosted many WWE Raw, ECW, and WWE SmackDown! tapings. The Air Canada Centre also featured World Championship Wrestling's first-ever WCW Monday Nitro telecast from Canada, on March 29, 1999 and first ever WCW Mayhem 1999 PPV aired from Canada.
