WWE apparently is not happy at all with the idea of Ring of Honor running events at Madison Square Garden.

We reported earlier this week that Sinclair CEO Chris Ripley told the Baltimore Biz Journal that ROH has intentions of running a show in Madison Square Garden sometime next year. WWE is not happy about this at all.

Mike Johnson reported in the latest installment of PWInsider Elite Audio that it just dawned on WWE that another wrestling promotion could be running a show in the venue and they weren’t thrilled to find this out.

I hear that WWE is very upset about the idea of Ring of Honor and AAA running that building. Apparently it just dawned on them that, “Oh my god, someone else is going to run Madison Square Garden” for the first time since the 1920s.

I really believe that WWE didn’t believe that The Garden would call them on their stuff.

As of this writing, no non-WWE events are official for but Ripley said that they were looking at holding an event there sometime next year.
