Money in the Bank event will not take place at a Stadium this year after all.
WWE has announced that Money in the Bank 2022 event will now take place at MGM Grand Arena in Las Vegas, NV on July 2, 2022. The event was earlier planned to take place at Allegiant Stadium in the same city.
WWE held SummerSlam 2021 at Allegiant Stadium in August 2021. Money in the Bank 2022 was also announced for the same venue on that day. It would have been the first time that MITB event would have taken place at a stadium. However, WWE has now switched the venue without any explanation. This will be the first-ever WWE event to take place at MGM Grand Arena.
As per Wrestle Tix, WWE has already sold around 16,000 tickets for the event at Allegiant Stadium out of the 25,000 tickets released. WWE has also announced that the fans who have brought tickets for Allegiant Stadium will get a full refund if they have purchased the tickets from Ticketmaster. Also, the earlier ticket holders will get the first chance to book tickets at MGM Grand Arena.
Currently, it is not known how many tickets will WWE release for this event. The arena has a permanent seating of around 15,000 while it can be increased to 17,000. AEW Double or Nothing in 2019 was sold out with 11,000 tickets released.
Money in the Bank 2022 will go head to head with UFC 276 event which will be taking place on the same date at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas. After UFC 276 and UFC International Fight Week was announced, it was speculated that WWE might change the date for MITB. However, they have only changed the venue for now.
The poster for Money in the Bank has also seen many changes. Undisputed WWE Universal Champion Roman Reigns is no longer on the poster and neither is SmackDown Women’s Champion Ronda Rousey. The new poster has Cody Rhodes in front and centre along with the likes of Rhea Ripley, Bianca Beliar, Riddle, Miz and the Street Profits.
