Pro Wrestling Since 1997



The world’s most famous arena and the mecca of professional wrestling –
Madison Square Garden – will have to move by 2023 as the New York City
Council notified the arena that it has 10 years to vacate its 45-year-old
premises. City officials are planning to expand Penn Station and MSG sits
right on top, blocking any future expansion plans. This would be Madison
Square Garden’s fifth move believe it or not since it opened in 1879. MSG
officials will be completing an almost $1 billion overhaul of the building
by fall of this year, an overhaul which will only have a 10 year life. WWE
has a very long history at The Garden and the location was chosen as the
host of the first WrestleMania in 1985. Two other WrestleManias – 10 and
20 – were hosted at MSG as well and countless non-televised live events,
RAW, and Smackdown, and other pay-per-views were also held at MSG over the
past several decades.
