ROH Running MSG? – Following in the news that AAA will be running Madison Square Garden in September, it’s now being reported that Ring of Honor has every intention of planting their flag right in Vince McMahon’s mecca.
ROH Plans on running a show at MSG, and not the theater, according to the Baltimore Sun’s Holden Wilen. Apparently Sinclair is encouraged by their own attendance figures, All In’s sellout and the WWE television deals as a reason to expand into a more impressive size venue. This is interesting, as both Sinclair and the WWE have similar political affiliations, so to go head to head would be a very problematic Thanksgiving at the White House.
Jokes aside, the WWE will either need to bring back major events to the arena or MSG will end it’s decades old relationship with the promotion.
