WWE releases 2022 PPV schedule including two-night WrestleMania

Originally published at WWE releases 2022 PPV schedule including two-night WrestleMania

WWE has released its pay-per-view scheduled for 2022 that includes a two-night WrestleMania among several stadium cards, as well as a pay-per-view over Labor Day weekend.

The schedule is not complete as they noted that events for February and October will be added at a later date. Those two events could be the shows in Saudi Arabia, which are not listed either.

Here is the schedule that was released on Monday:

Saturday, January 1 – Day 1 at the State Farm Arena in Atlanta, Georgia

Saturday, January 29 – Royal Rumble at The Dome at America’s Center in St. Louis, Missouri

Saturday, April 2 and Sunday, April 3 – WrestleMania 38 at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas

Sunday, May 8 – Dunkin’ Donuts Center in Providence, Rhode Island

Sunday, June 5 – 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, Tennessee

Saturday, September 3 OR Sunday, September 4 – Pay-Per-View at a Location TBA

Saturday, November 26 – Survivor Series at the TD Garden in Boston, Massachusetts

Clearly, there is an emphasis on Saturday night as a better night with only three Sunday night events listed and all for the spring months including night two of WrestleMania.

The Labor Day weekend show stands out in a big way given that has become AEW’s traditional weekend for All Out and could create a scenario where both promotions run pay-per-views that weekend.

They are also moving SummerSlam up several weeks and will take place in July for the first time and run on a Saturday at Nissan Stadium in Nashville.

The Labor Day show is allegedly in the UK. Which would mean it would air 3pm in the East Coast while AEW would be on at night. They’ll frame it like they aren’t trying to put a dent on All Out but it won’t work. If we’re in hour 5 of the WWE show on Peacock I’m out to the next show. We all had fun with Ruby and Bunny beating Roman and Brock in 18-49 but it shows for the most part these aren’t the same audiences.

SummerSlam on a July?!? This is different. I wonder what show will occupy August, because WWE can’t have a month without PPV/Network Event!

I know the Money in the Bank show is on a Saturday because of Vegas, but is it the same for the others, or the WWE is trying to do something “new?”
