WWE today announced that the 2022 Royal Rumble will be held at The Dome at America’s Center in St. Louis, Missouri.
The date chosen for this show is Saturday, January 29. This will be the first time that the stadium will be holding a WWE event. The Dome can be configured to host up to 82,000 people and the attendance record is currently held by Garth Brooks in March 2019 where over 75,000 people attended his concert.
The St. Louis BattleHawks of the rebooted XFL played at the stadium in early 2020.
“WWE has a rich history in St. Louis and we are excited to bring Royal Rumble to the Dome at America’s Center, a venue that has hosted countless large-scale sports and entertainment events,” said John P. Saboor, WWE Executive Vice President of Special Events. “We look forward to giving the WWE Universe an opportunity to experience all that St. Louis has to offer.”
“The City of St. Louis is thrilled to host Royal Rumble at the Dome at America’s Center in January,” said St. Louis Mayor Tishaura Jones. “St. Louis has the best sports scene in the country, and Royal Rumble will enhance it even more. This event is an incredible opportunity for our city, bringing WWE fans from across the nation to St. Louis and helping keep our downtown vibrant during the winter season.”
