Ring of Honor, New Japan Pro-Wrestling set for Madison Square Garden show in 2019

For the first time in decades, a non-WWE wrestling company will run a show at Madison Square Garden in New York, as Ring of Honor announced they were partnering with New Japan Pro-Wrestling to put on a show at The Garden on April 6, 2019.

While WWE (or more specifically, NXT) runs the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, N.Y., on the Saturday night of Wrestlemania Weekend, ROH and NJPW will run the building that was once synonymous with the WWE. However, because of rising costs and restrictions, WWE has not run a pay-per-view, or any televised show, at “the mecca” since 2011.

Enter Ring of Honor, which will be trying to make an even bigger splash after breaking its attendance record...
