WWE has revealed the upcoming calendar for their 2022 pay-per-views, but only a few of them have been named so far, including of course the Big 4, Royal Rumble, WrestleMania, SummerSlam and Survivor Series, plus the annual Money In The Bank PPV.
Here’s the current version of the 2022 WWE PPV calendar:
Saturday, January 1 – Day 1 (State Farm Arena in Atlanta)
Saturday, January 29 – Royal Rumble (The Dome at America’s Center in St. Louis)
Saturday, April 2 and Sunday, April 3 – WrestleMania (AT&T Stadium in Dallas)

Quite a few of them will actually take place on a Saturday, instead of the usual Sunday night WWE PPV schedule.
In the above schedule, the 2 Saudi Arabia PPVs will take place in February & October.
According to Fightful Select, the PPV scheduled for September 3rd or 4th will be a UK pay-per-view, which WWE has been planning for a while now.
The rumored location for the UK PPV is the Principality Stadium in Cardiff, Wales, which has a retractable roof and can hold up to 78,000 people.
Drew McIntyre has revealed in past interviews that there were plans for him to face Boxing Heavyweight Champion Tyson Fury at a UK PPV in 2020, but those plans got nixed due to COVID-19.
