Ring Of Honor No Longer Having Event At Madison Square Garden

Ring of Honor had the deal with MSG rescinded.

Last week, it was revealed that Ring of Honor had a show planned for Madison Square Garden for 2019. A week later during an interview with PWInsider, ROH COO Joe Koff said the arena had backed out of their deal due to WWE contacting the venue.

"I'm not going to discuss beyond this statement because I am not going to litigate this in the press.  We had a deal with (Madison Square Garden) and they then told us they were backing out after communications from the WWE. We are not able to get any other dates in any kind of discussion. I’m expecting that our lawyers will be contacting all the parties involved and the best we can hope is that we can find a resolution, so we can bring the kind of energy and excitement that ROH and our partner New Japan to a bigger audience and to bigger arenas and to the fans of New York City, " said Koff

Madison Square Garden has been in the wrestling headlines recently because of the ROH news, the Undertaker appearing at an upcoming Live Event at the arena, and Lucha Libre promotion AAA being rumored to going there soon.
