You have heard the old saying about the only guarantees in life being death and taxes? Well, you can add WWE premium live events (formerly known as pay-per-views) to that list, as the sports entertainment company is going to continue producing big shows despite Vince McMahon announcing his retirement after decades of revolutionizing the wrestling industry. But, in all seriousness, there is nothing that can stop the biggest wrestling promotion in the world from putting on a show (just look at what the company did during the COVID-19 pandemic), and 2022 doesn’t look to be any different, with a slate of upcoming WWE events as we put SummerSlam behind us.
WWE Clash At The Castle - September 3, 2022
For the first time in nearly 20 years, WWE will hold a major live event from the United Kingdom when WWE Clash at the Castle takes place on Saturday, September 3 at Principality Stadium in Cardiff, Wales (the company’s last premium live event from the UK was Insurrextion in June 2003). The event will also be the first stadium show produced by WWE in the UK since SummerSlam 1992.
Although the rest of the card has yet to be announced, Undisputed WWE Universal Champion Roman Reigns will defend his two titles against Drew McIntyre now that the “Tribal Leader” has put his years-long feud with Brock Lesnar behind him.
Extreme Rules - October 8, 2022
Definitely one the more painful events on the WWE calendar each year, Extreme Rules will be held Saturday, October 8 at the Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, which previously hosted the 2019 entry as well as other notable shows.
At this time, nothing has been announced for Extreme Rules 2022, but expect to hear a whole lot more as we work our way towards the fall months.
Crown Jewel - November 5, 2022
Since 2018, WWE has hosted a series of super-shows from Saudi Arabia as part of the country’s Saudi Vision 2030 initiative. That partnership will continue this fall when WWE brings the latest entry in the Crown Jewel series to Riyadh, Saudi Arabia on Saturday, November 5.
Although a stadium and lists of matches have not yet been announced, the Crown Jewel shows (and other events held by WWE in Saudi Arabia) have been massive in scope and often feature major stars of yesterday and today in high-profile matches, as well as non-WWE athletes and celebrities stepping into the ring.
Survivor Series - November 26, 2022
The final “Big Four” of the year, Survivor Series, will take place Saturday, November 26 at the TD Garden in Boston, Massachusetts. One of the company’s longest-running and most popular events, Survivor Series has given wrestling fans countless great moments over the years, ranging from infamous incidents like “The Montreal Screwjob” to the debut of icons like The Undertaker, The Rock, and The Shield. And, maybe this year will continue that Thanksgiving tradition.
Make sure to check back for up-to-date information on Survivor Series 2022 and its various matches ahead of the fan-favorite event.
WrestleMania 39 - April 1-2, 2023
Since 2020, every WrestleMania event has taken place over the course of two nights. That tradition will continue with WrestleMania 39 when the “Showcase of the Immortals” is held Saturday, April 1 and Sunday, April 2, 2023 from SoFi Stadium just outside Los Angeles, California. WWE made the news official during the 2022 WrestleMania weekend with a tweet highlighting the “Hollywood” subtitle of the upcoming show.
Nothing has been announced as far as matches go, but expect some major players to take the stage when the “Granddaddy of Them All” returns to Southern California for the first time since 2005. Also, we might finally see the long-rumored showdown between Roman Reigns and The Rock.
WrestleMania 40 - April 6-7, 2024
For the first time in 25 years, the “Granddaddy of Them All” will return to the “City of Brotherly Love” in April 2024, when Lincoln Financial Field (the home of the Philadelphia Eagles) hosts WrestleMania 40. In July 2022, WWE announced that the biggest wrestling event of the year will take place April 6 and 7, 2024, continuing the two-day model first put in place a few years ago.
Obviously, no matches have been announced a little less than two years before the opening bell,, but expect to hear more about the first WrestleMania in Philadelphia since Stone Cold Steve Austin defeated The Rock in their first of three showdowns at the “Showcase of the Immortals” back in March 1999.
WWE Events With Date TBD
Most of the dates for the upcoming WWE events have been set at this point, but there are some major shows on the horizon that still remain a mystery at this point.
TLC: Tables, Ladders And Chairs
Since being introduced in 2009, WWE’s TLC: Tables, Ladders and Chairs event has been held in December in all but one year (the 2017 competition was held in October of that year). However, itt did not take place in 2021, and there is no word when it will return.
Royal Rumble 2023
The Royal Rumble event typically takes place during one of the final two weekends of January each year, but WWE has not officially announced a date for the 2023 show. Expect to hear more soon.

A lot of these upcoming WWE events, especially WrestleMania 39 and 40, are a ways off, but there are plenty of new and returning shows to check out on CinemaBlend’s 2022 TV schedule.
Philip grew up in Louisiana (not New Orleans) before moving to St. Louis after graduating from Louisiana State University-Shreveport. When he's not writing about movies or television, Philip can be found being chased by his three kids, telling his dogs to stop yelling at the mailman, or yelling about professional wrestling to his wife. If the stars properly align, he will talk about For Love Of The Game being the best baseball movie of all time.
