What's the story?

WWE will be making its long-awaited return to Madison Square Garden in September for a pair of Raw and SmackDown Live tapings taking place on September 9th and 10th.

The official MSG website is now advertising two big double main events for the Raw and SmackDown tapings, featuring Seth Rollins, Roman Reigns and more.

In case you didn't know...

WWE has not held a TV taping at MSG, known as "The World's Most Famous Arena", in a decade, making the company's return to the arena next month a big deal for fans in the New York City area.

For the past few years, WWE has chosen to run televised events from The Barclays Center as opposed to MSG, but following this year's joint ROH and NJPW G1 Supercard event, which was a sellout at MSG, WWE has decided to return to the famed venue.

The heart of the matter

The official website of Madison Square Garden in New York City is advertising the following for the September 10th Raw taping:

WWE returns to MSG with LIVE TV for the first time in 10 years with MONDAY NIGHT RAW & SMACKDOWN LIVE!
MONDAY NIGHT RAW DOUBLE MAIN EVENT:
SETH ROLLINS, BRAUN STROWMAN & RICOCHET VS. THE O.C.’S AJ STYLES, LUKE GALLOWS & KARL ANDERSON
– 6-MAN TAG TEAM MATCH –

What's next?

It's very possible one or more of the above announced main events could be dark match main events, meaning they will not be televised, but that remains to be seen as of this writing.
