Wrestling began being held in the Rainbow Roller Rink in the early 1960s. In the mid 1960s an outdoor arena was constructed near the rink for use during the spring and summer moths. In the spring of 1971 an addition was added on adjacent to the roller rink and dubbed the Rainbow Garden. The first wrestling card was held at the Garden on June 10, 1971. Wrestling was held in the new building until the promotion closed in January of 1978. The building is now home to the 15th Street Flea Market.
