Madison Square Garden is set to host a big ROH/NJPW joint venture during WrestleMania week that obviously turned some heads when they booked the event. This obviously got some attention from WWE because why wouldn’t it? They are running a show in WWE’s traditional NYC home during their biggest week of the year.
We previously reported that Vince McMahon flew into NYC in order to meet with Madison Square Garden officials. But Barnburner’s Fired Up podcast, who broke this story had to retract their account of what went down. Joe Peisich wanted to make things very clear in the opening moments of Monday’s show.

“It has come to my attention that I was attributed to a news item where I reportedly stated that Vince McMahon was going to have a meeting with people in Madison Square Garden. That meeting did not happen. Vince McMahon is not having a meeting with anybody at Madison Square Garden or anything like that.”
“I’m sorry for any miscommunication. I’m sorry for anything that was wrong and myself 100% Barnburner was attributed to it. Apparently, it was wrong so I apologize.”

We will keep you updated on this story if there is any more news on it. But at this time, it looks like no meeting between Vince McMahon and MSG officials actually took place. As always, thank you for reading RSN.

I love pro wrestling and hate BS. These two things drive me. Years of experience in writing, journalism, and digging exclusive insider info for Ringside News. Worked in finance before realizing pro wrestling journalism made much less sense. Pro beachballs at pro wrestling shows, pro dives if someone catches, anti bullies, olives, and pineapples on pizza.
