WWE is returning to Las Vegas and the Allegiant Stadium for the 4th of July weekend next year with Money In The Bank.
The company announced yesterday during SummerSlam and subsequently via a press release that Money In The Bank will be held inside a stadium for the first time ever.
“Las Vegas, its residents and visitors have demonstrated that Vegas is the perfect city for our biggest events,” said Nick Khan, WWE President & Chief Revenue Officer. “Money In The Bank, an appropriately titled event for Vegas and one of our five annual tentpoles, will bring the WWE Universe back to Allegiant Stadium July 4th weekend of 2022.”
This is also the first time that a U.S.-based event which is not one of the top four pay-per-views on the WWE calendar will be held in a stadium. 4th of July next year will be on a Monday so it will be a long weekend for those making the trip.
“We were thrilled to host SummerSlam at Allegiant Stadium. Its success continues to illustrate how the city of Las Vegas is uniquely positioned to host a variety of exciting and diverse sports and entertainment events,” said Chris Wright, Allegiant Stadium General Manager. “Partnering with the LVCVA team has been pivotal in bringing SummerSlam to the market and we are looking forward to collaborating with WWE on hosting Money In The Bank on July 4th weekend in 2022.”
