The $55 million renovation of the Cox Business Center begins, marking the end of Tulsa’s convention center arena.
It’s being turned into a 41,000-square foot ballroom to boost the meeting space that's available. Tulsa Mayor G.T. Bynum said the arena holds a lot of memories for a lot of people, including a WWF wrestling event he attended as a kid.
"Ted DiBiase jumps out of the ring and grabs my dad’s metal chair and jumps in the ring and hits Killer Khan with it, and that was the most exciting event of my entire childhood. And it happened right here," Bynum said.
