WWE had two MSG events on the calendar in 2020 prior to the pandemic. Also, New Japan Pro-Wrestling was going to run their Wrestle Dynasty show from the arena on 8/22. Former NJPW President Harold Meij told Sports Illustrated that it would become a yearly event.
MSG nor WWE has yet to confirm the date for the company’s return to The Garden.
