WWE to hold TV tapings at MSG for the first time in 10 years


WWE is bringing Raw and Smackdown television tapings to Madison Square Garden for the first time in 10 years on September 9 and 10.

In an unlisted video on WWE’s YouTube account, Bayley is seen cutting a promo urging fans to register to the WWE Verified Fan program to get their first crack at tickets when Ticketmaster has the pre-sale for both shows.

WWE has moved away from holding television tapings at The Garden due to the extra costs and union issues that go along with doing TV there. WWE has also lost their handshake agreement of being the only wrestling company allowed to perform at the world’s most famous arena and ROH/NJPW already held a sold out show there during WrestleMania 35 weekend. Lucha Libre AAA has a show scheduled at MSG the week after WWE holds their tapings.
