WWE has announced the company’s 2022 pay-per-view event schedule.
Most notably, the Labor Day weekend event was listed as Saturday, September 3 or Sunday, September 4, with the location listed as TBD.
In an update, Dave Meltzer had more information on the plans for the Labor Day Weekend event on today’s Wrestling Observer Radio at F4WOnline.com.
According to Meltzer, WWE is currently planning to hold a big event in the United Kingdom during that weekend. While plans are not “definite,” Meltzer stated that WWE has been talking to Principality Stadium (formerly The Millennium Stadium) in Cardiff, Wales and Wembley Stadium in London to host the show — which will not be SummerSlam, as the new PPV schedule confirmed that SummerSlam 2022 has been moved up to Nissan Stadium in Nashville, TN.
Multiple reports insist that a major UK stadium show was in the works for WWE, however, the earlier reports for last month indicated it would actually be SummerSlam as the stadium, which would seem to coincide with the 30th anniversary of SummerSlam 1992.
That event was held at Wembley Stadium on August 29, 1992.
Apparently WWE’s idea to run a stadium show in the UK around this time was to celebrate the 30th anniversary of SummerSlam 1992 at Wembley in the UK, however it’s unknown why WWE didn’t opt to make this event next year’s SummerSlam if that is, in fact, the case.
It also appears that weekend might put the UK stadium show opposite AEW All Out 2022, as AEW has typically held its past All Out events during Labor Day Weekend.
Regardless, due to the time zone difference with WWE running in the UK, the shows would likely not face any head-to-head issues.
