WWE is currently in the process of looking for a suitable location for WrestleMania Axxess next year and Vince McMahon is reportedly meeting with Madison Square Garden officials next week to discuss different options. As previously reported ROH is running a show at MSG April 6. Here is what Joe Peisich said on the Barnburner Fired Up podcast:

“Vince McMahon does have a meeting in place with the people of MSG, Madison Square Garden. This is interesting as you know Ring Of Honor is at MSG on April 6th. Does McMahon throw to MSG millions of dollars to say ‘throw them out so we can have our show?’ He’s having meetings with MSG I have heard next week about this. I don’t know what’s going to happen there it should be interesting because this will be the first time WWE will sort of need MSG to promote their show of their fan Axxess.”

ROH is running opposite NXT. I doubt Axxess will be going on at the same time.

No truth to this at all. MSG will not break a contract once an agreement is made to host a show at the venu.

wouldn't surprise me if the morning of April 6th a suspicious fire breaks out at MSG.

I thought MSG was exclusive to WWE?

I asked on this board and wondered why Vince turned his back on MSG (RAW 25) and always looks at Barclays now for NYC events and another poster said it's because MSG charges licensing/TV rights.

MSG is unionized employees. Costs way more to run there (I’ve heard about $100,000 more, don’t know if that’s true or not)

I don’t know specific numbers but it’s always said that it cost way more to do tv’s there.
