WWE Returning To MSG This September For RAW & SmackDown Live Taping

For the first time in nearly ten years, WWE will be returning to the Mecca of Sports Entertainment -- Madison Square Garden -- for back-to-back nights of live television this coming September from the world-famous arena in New York City.

WWE announced that they will be holding a live episode of WWE RAW from MSG on Monday, September 9th. They will return the following evening, Tuesday, September 10th, for an episode of WWE SmackDown Live.

"For the 1st Time in 10 Years WWE Returns to the World’s most famous arena, Madison Square Garden, with live TV! It’s Back-to-Back nights of live TV as Monday Night RAW & Smackdown Live make their return to MSG!"
