WWE officially announced they will return to Madison Square Garden on 9/9 and 9/10 for Raw and Smackdown tapings.

WWE last ran the venue in December 2018.  These return events will feature the first WWE TV tapings in the Garden since a Raw taping on 11/16/09.  That taping was headlined by WWE World Champion John Cena & World Heavyweight Champion the Undertaker defeating DX's Triple H & Shawn Michaels and WWE Unified Tag Team Champions Chris Jericho & the Big Show in a Triple Threat match.  Since then, MSG has hosted live events, the 2011 Survivor Series and the 2013 WWE Hall of Fame.

The tapings will take place just a few days before AAA Lucha Libre debuts in the venue on 9/15 and a week before New Japan Pro Wrestling runs the Hammerstein Ballroom around the corner on 9/28.  Ring of Honor and New Japan Pro Wrestling combined to run MSG with G1 Supercard this past April.
