According to the Wrestling Observer, WWE’s return to Madison Square Garden this upcoming September for Raw and SmackDown television are selling at a disappointing pace. Reports state that neither show has sold out yet, with Raw expected to be an instant sell-out, as this was the first Raw to take place in MSG since November 2009. A speculated reason for the poor ticket sales are overpricing and lack of interest from scalpers. This is unlike the demand for the Ring of Honor/NJPW G1 Supercard, which only took 15-minutes to sell out the Garden.
The Lucha Libre promotion AAA is set to make their MSG debut on September 15th, one week after WWE visits the Big Apple.
