WWE was slated to hold a house show at Madison Square Garden in New York City in March 2020, but it was postponed due to the outbreak of the coronavirus. It was then rescheduled for Saturday, June 27 before being nixed as WWE stopped touring. The company is slated to resume touring on July 16th.
PWinsider.com reported today that WWE is planning to hold a SmackDown TV event on Friday, September 10th at the venue. WWE nor the arena has yet to confirm the event booking.
Last year’s MSG show was supposed to include a special appearance by D-Generation X members Shawn Michaels, Triple H, Sean Waltman, and Road Dogg.
For decades, MSG was considered the home of WWE, then-WWWF and WWF, due to the promotion running so many shows at the world famous arena. In recent years, WWE only booked house shows twice a year at MSG as it was cheaper and easier to set up production for TV and PPV events at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn.
WWE changed that trend by booking Raw and SmackDown TV events on back-to-back nights in September 2019.
