ROH Rumors: Madison Square Garden Hosting ROH During WrestleMania Weekend?

Published

on

Ring Of Honor

In case you missed it, officials ‘The World’s Most Famous Arena’ Madison Square Garden are not too happy with their relationship with WWE over the past few years (which you can check out here). Since the completion of the brand new Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York, WWE has continuously chosen to run televised events there, leaving Madison Square Garden out in the cold reportedly due to high production costs.

We previously noted how this has led MSG to be more open than ever to bringing in other wrestling companies, most notably the Mexico-based AAA who has a date set for September. It was then revealed this week that Ring Of Honor was looking to get into The Garden with plans to do so in 2019 (you can find that here). It was also speculated that it could be for a possible ‘All In 2’ show.

More speculation on a possible Ring Of Honor show at Madison Square Garden has also begun finding its way out after WrestlingInc has noted that the show could take place during WrestleMania 35 weekend next year (which is set to take place at MetLife Stadium in New Jersey). WWE is currently set to hold all of their WrestleMania activities at the Barclays Center.

EA’s Take: Logically, it does make sense for Ring Of Honor to have a show at Madison Square Garden during WrestleMania weekend. One of the reported “last straws” for Madison Square Garden officials was WWE choosing Barclays for their WrestleMania events instead of MSG, so I can see how that would add up. However, let’s consider how this came out. WrestlingInc simply speculated it, there’s no evidence/proof/justification for them throwing that out there unless they have information nobody else has, but if that was the case, don’t you think they would have jumped on reporting it? I do. PURE RUMOR.

WWE News: Segment Added To Next Week’s SmackDown Live

Published

Vince McMahon
More has been added to next week’s SmackDown Live!

Next week we will see the final episodes of WWE’s RAW and SmackDown Live before next Sunday’s Royal Rumble event and over the weekend we’ve had some announcements regarding what we will see on both shows (see the latest for RAW here).

Today, we learned that Tuesday’s edition of the blue brand will not only see Mustafa Ali take on Samoa Joe, but Rey Mysterio and Andrade will clash again in a rematch of last week’s epic encounter. Except this time around, it will be in a 2/3 Falls Match (read about that here).

Now, a segment has been revealed for SmackDown Live that will see Royal Rumble opponents AJ Styles and WWE Champion Daniel Bryan going “face-to-face”. What will make this interesting is the addition of a third body however, which will be none other than WWE Chairman Vince McMahon himself:

Tensions between WWE Champion “The New” Daniel Bryan and AJ Styles have continued to escalate over the past several weeks, and now, with their WWE Title Match in sight, the two will meet face-to-face this Tuesday night with Mr. McMahon moderating.

With both Superstars having attacked each other in arena concourses over consecutive weeks, animosity is running at an all-time high in this incredibly personal rivalry. And now, with Mr. McMahon moderating, who only a few weeks ago urged The Phenomenal One to bring out “the real” AJ Styles, will matters boil over just five nights before they square off at Royal Rumble?

Find out this Tuesday night on SmackDown LIVE!
