WWE is going to have a live event at the Madison Square Garden on March 5 in New York. The event name is “WWE Live Road to Wrestlemania“. The originally advertised match where Brock Lesnar was going to defend the WWE Championship against Lashley is no longer advertised. Speculations are that Bobby Lashley is dealing with a shoulder injury and was in Birmingham, Alabama to meet with WWE doctors. He was taken out from the Elimination Chamber match when Seth Rollins threw Austin Theory through Lashley’s pod with a Buckle Bomb. The updated match card for the show looks like this as per MSG’s website.
