WWE Might Be Moving the 2022 Money In The Bank Pay-Per-View's Date
When WWE initially announced its 2022 pay-per-view schedule, this year's Money in the Bank was slated for Saturday, July 2, at Allegiant Stadium in Las Vegas. However, the UFC confirmed on Saturday night that its annual International Fight Week would be held in Vegas from June 27 through July 3, which includes UFC 276 at T-Mobile Arena on that Saturday running at the same time as Money in the Bank. WWE has yet to confirm whether or not they'll move the show, though Fightful's Sean Ross Sapp noted WWE also has that Sunday (July 3) on hold just in case.
WWE's last trip to Vegas for the 2021 SummerSlam event also saw a scheduling conflict from the combat sports world as boxing icon Manny Pacquiao took on Yordenis Ugas (and lost) at the T-Mobile Arena while Roman Reigns vs. John Cena was the headliner at Allegiant Stadium. Stay tuned for more updates on Money in the Bank as they become available!
I'm told there's unlikely to be a conflict as WWE also has a hold on Allegiant Stadium for Sunday, July 3. With the Independence Day holiday on Monday, it looks like it will all be sorted by the time Money in the Bank tickets go on sale and there will be pretty big weekend there https://t.co/LPMmOnNqGs— Sean Ross Sapp of Fightful.com (@SeanRossSapp) January 23, 2022
