New York City's Madison Square Garden, long considered WWE's home arena, announced today they would be re-opening to full capacity for the first time since shuttering due to the COVID-19 pandemic with a Foo Fighters concert on 6/20.  The legendary facility had been operating for New York Rangers and New York Knicks games at a limited capacity in recent months.  The concert will be the first show presented by MSG in over 460 days.

WWE had two scheduled events canceled during the pandemic, a March 2020 by event that was postponed until June before being canceled, as well as the unannounced but traditional December 26th post-Christmas event.  New Japan Pro Wrestling was slated to run MSG in August 2020 with the first-ever Wrestling Dynasty event.

MSG was shuttered on 3/20/19 after New York Governor Andrew Cuomo shut down all public gatherings over 500 at the time, announcing, “We support Governor Cuomo’s decision and starting tomorrow night, our New York venues will only host events that adhere to the Governor’s very clear parameters. This is a fluid situation and we will be back with further details when available,”

WWE has not yet announced plans to return to the venue, but obviously, that will be coming.  The venue has hosted more historic title changes and milestone WWE events than any other dating back to the earliest days of professional wrestling promoted by the McMahon family.
