WWE, for the first time in history, has announced the dates and locations for pay-per-view to be held the following year, in this case in 2022, with Wrestlemania 38 also taking place over two evenings, such as the previous Wrestlemania.
In addition, this sets the record for the most events in a stadium in a year for WWE. Here are the events announced for now: Saturday, January 1 - Day 1 at the State Farm Arena in Atlanta Saturday, January 29 - Royal Rumble at The Dome at America's Center in St.
Louis Saturday, April 2 and Sunday, April 3 - WrestleMania at AT&T Stadium in Dallas Sunday, May 8 - Pay-per-view at the Dunkin 'Donuts Center in Providence, R.I. Sunday, June 5 - Pay-Per-View at the Allstate Arena in Chicago Saturday, July 2 - Money In The Bank at Allegiant Stadium in Las Vegas Saturday, July 30– SummerSlam at Nissan Stadium in Nashville Saturday, September 3rd or Sunday, September 4th - Pay-Per-View at TBD location Saturday, November 26 - Survivor Series at the TD Garden in Boston.
The company also added: "In addition to the above events, pay-per-view events taking place in February and October will be announced in the near future."
WWE releases a statement
Along with the announcement of these dates on their website, the McMahon-owned company also wrote: "Since returning to live events last July, our fans have kindly expressed a huge appetite to attending WWE shows.
making plans for next year, we wanted to make sure the 2022 pay-per-view schedule and locations were made available to them." These are the words of Nick Khan, WWE President & Chief Revenue Officer. So the WWE Universe can already start thinking about how to move to go and watch their favorite fighters' shows live, keeping an eye out for more announcements to be made soon by the company on other special shows scheduled, which will touch all the United States and beyond, perhaps even the United Kingdom.
WWE's decision to move these events to Saturdays also seems to coincide with the NFL's regular season. Because the NFL holds the majority of its weekly games on Sunday, a move towards the day prior means the company won't have to compete for this viewership audience.
(That being said, there's usually one nightly NFL game held on Saturdays.) Overall, it's clear that this new schedule is apparently seen as positive news among the WWE roster.
