It was one week ago when the report first came out that WWE was heading back to Madison Square Garden. That was a report from PWInsider that we covered here. Today, WWE officially announced their return to MSG for Friday, September 10.
Here’s the official announcement from WWE.
WWE will make its highly anticipated return to New York City, as Friday Night SmackDown will take place at Madison Square Garden on September 10.
The weekly spectacular, broadcast live every Friday on FOX at 8/7 C, features Universal Champion Roman Reigns, SmackDown Women’s Champion Bianca Belair, SmackDown Tag Team Champions Rey & Dominik Mysterio, WWE Intercontinental Champion Apollo Crews, Edge, Sasha Banks, Bayley, Seth Rollins, Big E, Kevin Owens and more.
Tickets for the event will be available starting next Friday, July 9, at 10 am ET via Ticketmaster.
It should be noted that just because somebody is advertised for the show, it doesn’t mean they will necessarily be there. There have been reports that WWE will be doing the annual WWE Draft one week earlier on August 30 (Raw) and September 3 (Smackdown), so there might be some changes.
