Raw And SmackDown Returning To Madison Square Garden For First Time In 10 Years

Think of all the things that have happened in WWE in the last 10 years. Now stop crying, because the company has made a big announcement regarding Madison Square Garden.

For almost a century, Madison Square Garden (MSG) was seen as the home of WWE, as no other wrestling promotion had ever held a show there since the early part of the 20th century.

This was until Ring of Honor and New Japan Pro Wrestling held the G1 Supercard at MSG earlier this year.

Vince McMahon was reportedly furious at the decision, which allegedly came about after the owners of the venue were upset with WWE for continuing to use the nearby Barclays Center instead of MSG, due to its larger capacity.

Relationships between the two parties seem to be on the up however, as it has now been announced that both Raw and SmackDown will be taped at MSG for the first time in 10 years this September.


WWE generally holds a house show at The Garden once a year, but this will be the first time in a decade that weekly TV will be taped there.
