    WWE MSG Ticket Sales Are Reportedly "Exceedingly Disappointing" - Wrestling Inc.

    As reported earlier this month, WWE will be returning to Madison Square Garden in New York City for TV tapings on Monday, September 9 and Tuesday, September 10. The back-to-back RAW and SmackDown MSG TV tapings are the first since a RAW was taped in November of 2009.

    WWE's last show at the venue was a post-Christmas live event this past December. WWE will run MSG a few days before AAA's debut at the arena on Sunday, September 15, and a week before NJPW runs a show at the nearby Hammerstein Ballroom on Saturday, September 28.

    On the latest Wrestling Observer Radio it was said ticket sales have been "not good," although specific ticket sale numbers weren't given, neither show has sold-out yet. Dave Meltzer reported that RAW was expected to be an instant sell-out, and it's been viewed as "exceeding disappointing" that didn't take place.

    Though it’s not the city, they just had dud shows in Newark and Uniondale. That can’t make wrestling fans in the NYC area giddy for another show.

    "Yeah, it's the same show you've been watching, but it's in MADISON SQUARE GARDEN!"

    As was once said,

    Yeah, that'll put butts in seats :unimpressed:

    The place is as special as it gets in sports, but the venue is never gonna make up for the show being trash. Haven’t done raw or smackdown there since November 2009. Since 2005, the only pay per view events there were the 2008 royal rumble and 2011 survivor series. Way too rarely for my taste, but the garden itself can’t be the draw. Very telling that they’ve gotten so lazy and know the product is so bad that they think this will turn it around.

    It’s still early, but if they can’t get over 65% of those seats filled in MSG... :picard:

    Wonder how many tickets will be sold.

    I remember that last RAW at the Garden. They got a new theme song, new graphics, and the set was smaller and more intimate because of the double doors. It felt like a completely different show. :wow:

    They used "Empire State of Mind" for a video package showcasing memorable moments at the Garden. :wow:

    The triple threat tag team main event, using everybody in the world championship matches at Survivor Series six days later. :wow:

    Memories. :mjcry:
