WWE have announced the majority of their pay-per-views that will take place next year. The dates and locations for 9 events have been announced on WWE.com, including the locations of the big 4 pay-per-views of the Royal Rumble, SummerSlam, Survivor Series and WrestleMania. The current list is as follows:
- Saturday, Jan. 1 – Day 1 at State Farm Arena in Atlanta
- Saturday, Jan. 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 Dunkin’ Donuts Center in Providence, R.I.
- Sunday, June 5 – Pay-Per-View at 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, Sept. 3 or Sunday, Sept. 4 – Pay-Per-View at TBD location
- Saturday, Nov. 26 – Survivor Series at TD Garden in Boston
In the same press release, more pay-per-views will be announced by WWE in the near future. these events will take place in February and October.
Multiple newsworthy points can be drawn from this series of dates. Firstly, this confirms that WrestleMania 38 will be a 2 night event. This had only been speculated before today, with some reporting that WrestleMania may go back to a single night event moving forward. Also, while the big events have been announced, no gimmick themed pay-per-views have been officially named in this list.
The most interesting point on the list is the September 3rd or 4th pay-per-view. Currently, no location has been revealed for this event. This coincides with reports back in September that WWE might be considering a UK pay-per-view may take place. While SummerSlam will not be taking place in the UK to mark 30 years since the Wembley 1992 show, there still is a possibility of a British pay-per-view in autumn 2022.
