WWE’s Day 1 returning to Atlanta on January 1, 2023

Atlanta’s State Farm Arena has announced that the WWE Day 1 premium live event will be returning on Sunday, January 1, 2023.

WWE made history earlier this year when it presented a premium live event on New Year’s Day for the first time ever and it was the start of a tradition moving forward. It was WWE co-CEO and President Nick Khan who came up with the idea of holding the show in Atlanta as the city attracts many visitors for the celebrations.

The State Farm Arena is using a graphic of Brock Lesnar to promote the show although it’s too early to figure out if he will be there. For the first Day 1 show, Lesnar was supposed to take on Roman Reigns for the title but Reigns had coronavirus and Lesnar instead was involved in a fatal five-way match against Big E, Seth Rollins, Kevin Owens, and Bobby Lashley for the WWE title. Lesnar won the match and the title, ending Big E’s reign short.

Tickets for Day 1 go on sale on August 23 at 10AM ET.
