WWE finally hits big time with Madison Square Garden debut

WWE new york

World Wrestling Entertainment has finally landed a show in the Big Apple.

Plucky sports-entertainment company World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE) will reach a new milestone tonight when it debuts at one of the world’s most famous arenas, Madison Square Garden.

Nearly 5,000 tickets have already sold for tonight’s event at the venue — a far cry from WWE’s early days at a small soundstage in Florida.

“I’ve never even been to New York City before!” gushed company Chairman Vince McMahon during a press conference this morning . “If I can make it here, I can make it anywhere!”

WWE has long been known as “the little promotion that could,” putting on fun, family-oriented shows at county fairs, high school gymnasiums, and once at a little stadium in Pontiac, Michigan.

WWE wrestlers are reportedly giddy with anticipation, and headliner Brock Lesnar tweeted this morning: “Omigod, big event tonight, guys! #Nervous #WishMeLuck!”

Madison Square Garden has been considered a mecca of professional wrestling ever since Total Non-stop Action (TNA) hosted the very first Bound For Glory there in 1985.
