Ring Of Honor & New Japan Pro Wrestling will be holding an event at Madison Square Garden in New York during WrestleMania 35 weekend. The show sold out which is good for ROH & NJPW.

Former Universal Champion Kevin Owens has an interesting opinion about why the show sold out. He thinks that the show sold out because it’s being held during WrestleMania 35 weekend which is the time when a large number of wrestling fans will be in town.

While being interviewed by Gorilla Position, Owens said that he’s happy that ROH’s show sold out, but he also thinks that there was some help by WWE in it.

“I absolutely don’t think it’s a threat. I think it’s great for everybody involved and WWE thrives on competition. It did for a long time. I think healthy competition is great and I think WWE would agree. But WWE will always try to go out and be better than everybody else and I think that’s why they got to the point where they’re at, you know?

They want to be bigger and they want to do things other companies can’t and they’re never gonna change that way. The fact that all these companies are thriving is great for everybody involved. Whether it’s wrestlers who are up and coming and trying to make a career or even wrestler that might eventually leave WWE, it gives them a place to go to.

Look, the wrestling world is changing and it’s very exciting to see. But I think it would be silly to look at these companies thriving and not feel like WWE is a big part of them thriving as well. You know what I mean? Even Ring Of Honor selling out Madison Square Garden is fantastic, it’s unbelievable… but they’re selling it out on WrestleMania weekend, you know what I mean?

So I feel people should still be grateful to WWE and I know some people that’s not the cool thing to admit that WWE might not be this giant thing trying to hurt the indies.

I know a lot of people feel that they are, but I couldn’t disagree more and I hope one day Ring Of Honor can sell out Madison Square Garden when WWE’s not in town and everything points to that happening eventually and that’s amazing.”

Kevin Owens doesn’t look too impressed with ROH’s achievement but it still will be beneficial for the company.
