They must protect their house. WWE has been around for a very long time now and the company has been through a lot. The company has grown to levels that almost no one would have believed possible but they have managed to make it work. At the same time though, the company still wants to keep some of the traditions that they have had before. Now that means they are going out of their way to make something better this time around.
WWE will be returning to Madison Square Garden in New York City on March 5 for a live event. There are two matches advertised for the show, including Brock Lesnar challenging Bobby Lashley for the WWE Title and Seth Rollins challenging Roman Reigns for the Universal Title. According to the Wrestling Observer Newsletter, WWE is hoping to draw a higher attendance for the show because the previous show in the city did not do well. The arena is considered WWE’s home base and has been for several decades.
Opinion: This isn’t the biggest surprise, but there were a few reasons that the previous show didn’t do so well. WWE presented Survivor Series, the Monday Night Raw after, the next Monday Night Raw, another Monday Night Raw a few weeks later and then the post Christmas live event all in the span of about six weeks. I don’t know why WWE would want to run the place over and over, but it is a place that means the world to them and it makes sense.
What do you think of the show? How will the audience be? Let us know in the comments below.
