WWE has announced their pay-per-view calendar for 2022 and it might have given away the date for a long-hoped-for UK pay-per-view.
The company has released a list of nine events in a press release, noting that events will also take place in February and October but details have not yet been finalised.
The first show of the year is, appropriately, named ‘Day One’ and will take place on New Year’s Day at the State Farm Arena in Atlanta, GA. The Royal Rumble will also take place in January, on Saturday 29th at The Dome at America’s Center in St. Louis.
The press release has also confirmed that WrestleMania will once again be a two-night event, this time at the AT&T Stadium in Dallas, TX on April 2nd and 3rd.
SummerSlam has also been revealed to take place on a Saturday again, and a little earlier than usual on July 30th rather than its traditional August slot. It will be held at the Nissan Stadium in Nashville, GA.
Almost all of the events on the list have a confirmed location except for one that is pencilled in for September 3rd or 4th at “TBD Location”.
Fightful’s Sean Ross Sapp has taken to Twitter to report that he understands the mystery September location will be in the UK for a much-anticipated UK pay-per-view event.
“September 3 or 4 is slated tentatively as the WWE UK PPV, as far as I understand. Even if they ran the day of All Out, the shows would likely be an ocean apart and not technically head to head”
AEW’s biggest show of the year, All Out, has established a tradition of being held on Labor Day weekend, which in 2022 falls on September 4th and 5th. It is likely that All Out will be held in Chicago, Illinois as it has in two of the past three years, however, Tony Khan has previously stated his intention to hold a large event in the UK.
