Sinclair CEO On ROH Running Madison Square Garden Again: We'll See If Running That Size Makes Sense

Will ROH go back to the Garden?

On April 6, 2019, ROH teamed with NJPW to bring a showcase event to Madison Square Garden during WrestleMania week. The historical event quickly sold out as it was a rare time when a company other than WWE was hosted by MSG.

Speaking to Biz Journals, Sinclair CEO Chris Ripley commented on the possibility of ROH possibly returning to Madison Square Garden.

"I think in the not-too-distant future most sporting events will be at or near capacity. We'll have to see with Ring of Honor whether that size event makes sense, but just generally in sports we're seeing really robust demand and return for near-full facilities," he said.

ROH is set to welcome fans back at Best in the World on July 11.

The article focused on Sinclair potentially launching a sports streaming service that would charge fans $23 per month for content. Ripley didn't provide further details on the potential service, or if ROH would be involved, just saying, "sports needs to transform as so many media businesses need to. It's not only just bringing the games over the top into direct-to-consumer -- it's providing gamification, fandom-based community and other engagement opportunities like e-commerce, ticketing, collectibles, and creating that whole ecosystem."
