WWE increased the number of stadium shows this year up to 8 of them scheduled to take place. Fans can expect to see more next year as Andrew Zarian of the Mat Men Podcast reports the company intends to hold more stadium shows next year.
It was said WWE President Nick Khan wants to make it the new norm going forward. The idea behind it is to create more revenue and excitement for each event.
“A source over at WWE mentioned that WWE intends to run more stadium shows moving forward in 2023. Just for reference 2022 has 8 stadium events. The goal is to make this the new norm. This is a Nick Khan approach when it comes to Premium Live Events. The scalability of large stadiums is very beneficial when it comes to having live attendance over 15k. The event doesn't have to be a sell-out of 50k+ but now you have room to do 20-35k shows more often leading to much higher revenue & higher level of excitement for the event.”
WWE will hold the remaining stadium shows this year on July 2 for Money In The Bank from Allegiant Stadium in Las Vegas, SummerSlam at Nissan Stadium in Nashville on July 30, the UK event at Principality Stadium in Cardiff, Wales on September 3, and an event in Saudi Arabia in October.
WWE events held in arenas for the rest of 2022 include WrestleMania Backlash on May 8 at Dunkin’ Donuts Center in Providence, R.I, Hell In A Cell at Allstate Arena in Chicago on June 5, and Survivor Series at TD Garden in Boston.
