Live from Madison Square Garden was a professional wrestling event produced by WWE. It took place on October 3, 2015 and aired exclusively on the WWE Network. The event is hailed as a part of Brock Lesnar's Go To Hell Tour and his return to Madison Square Garden in his first match in the arena since his original departure from the company in 2004. The event also marked the 25-year anniversary of Chris Jericho's debut in the professional wrestling industry.


The show featured professional wrestling matches that involve wrestlers from pre-existing scripted feuds or storylines that play out on WWE's primary television programs, Raw and SmackDown. Wrestlers will portray heroes (faces) or villains (heels) as they follow a series of events that build tension and culminate in a wrestling match or series of matches.

The main event will feature Brock Lesnar in a match with The Big Show. Lesnar previously faced Show at the 2014 Royal Rumble.

At WrestleMania 31, John Cena became United States Champion, defeateding Rusev. On the July 27 episode of Raw, Cena challenged Seth Rollins to a match for Rollins' WWE World Heavyweight Championship, which The Authority instead made for Cena's United States Championship. Cena won the match by submission, during which Rollins legitimately broke Cena's nose. Rollins then challenged Cena to a Title vs. Title match at SummerSlam; Cena accepted, but Rollins won when guest host Jon Stewart interfered on Rollins' behalf. Rollins and Cena are scheduled for a rematch at Night of Champions.

Dolph Ziggler and Rusev have had an ongoing feud since May, stemming from Ziggler forming a romantic relationship with Lana, Rusev's former valet. The two fought to a double countout at SummerSlam. In a rematch on the August 31 episode of Raw, Ziggler won by disqualification following the interference of Rusev's new girlfriend, Summer Rae. Rusev and Ziggler are scheduled for a third match at Night of Champions.
