• WWE Officials Are Furious After Tony Khan’s Comments
WWE was set to return to the Allegiant Stadium in Paradise, Nevada for Money In The Bank 2022 on July 2nd.
However, that isn’t the case anymore.
WWE has now moved this premium live event to the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Paradise, Nevada.
This change was made because WWE couldn’t sell out the stadium.
According to WrestleTix, WWE sold around 18,000 tickets for MITB at Allegiant Stadium.
SummerSlam 2021 also took place at the Allegiant Stadium and the attendance was 51,326.
Below are some of the main reasons why WWE couldn’t sell out the Stadium:
– While Money In The Bank is considered a top WWE PPV, it still isn’t on the level on the “Big 4” PPVs.
– This event takes place just 4 weeks before SummerSlam 2022, and there’s a big chance some fans decided to save money and attend SummerSlam instead of MITB, especially since SummerSlam will be a bigger show and will most likely feature returns of big names like Brock Lesnar and John Cena.
– Tickets prices are high.
– WWE is going head to head with the UFC 276 PPV in the same area, so that could’ve hurt the tickets sales as well.
AEW President Tony Khan went on to take a major shot as he tweeted the following:
“Yesterday: one of my favorite days, including
– great visits with fans + media
– a trip to LA for the most fulfilling meeting of my life with @wbd leadership
– dinner with my Dad + Dana White, where I got to break the news to Dana about MITB moving to MGM
Genius move trying to take on Dana and the UFC in Vegas during International Fight Week.”
According to the Wrestling Observer, WWE Officials are furious after this comment:
“People in WWE were furious about this tweet. Furious about this tweet, because they moved to a smaller building.”
