Docklands Stadium (also known by its former sponsored names of Colonial Stadium and Telstra Dome and its current sponsorship name of Etihad Stadium) is a multi-purpose sports and entertainment stadium in the Docklands precinct of Melbourne, Victoria, Australia. Construction started in October 1997 under the working name, "Victoria Stadium" and was completed in 2000 at a cost of A$460 million.

In 2002, the stadium hosted WWE Global Warning and attracted a then venue record of 56,734. Despite the massive success of the event, wrestling has never returned due to the damage to the venue's surface alleged by the venue's chief supporter and future owner the Australian Football League.
