Triple H is a pioneer in the world of professional wrestling. After accomplishing a lot as a pro wrestler, he became the brains behind NXT’s gold and black era.
Vince McMahon was forced to retire and step down from his position as WWE Chairman, afterwards Triple H was made the head of WWE Creative. This was truly what many fans wanted for years.
According to Dave Meltzer on Wrestling Observer Radio, WWE plans on making the Day 1 event an annual affair. The next event will be held on January 1st, 2023 as well.
When asked why tickets for the upcoming event are still unavailable, despite them originally set to go on sale in September, Meltzer provided an explanation.
“They had discussed changing the date. I don’t think they will. I was told a couple of weeks ago that if they do make a change, the change would have been announced on Friday. Friday came and went, there was no announcement. So I presume it’s on, and the tickets will be on sale soon. It still might be changed, but I don’t know.
“The problem is every day that they could change it to, they’ve already got shows booked. Of course they could cancel those shows, but I have not heard of them not selling tickets in those other things, and I think they would freeze ticket sales of one of the other shows if they were going to cancel.
“The idea of the pay-per-view is January 1. They want to make it an annual tradition in Atlanta, and January 1 is a Saturday I believe this year (it’s actually a Sunday). I guess New Year’s Day is a holiday either way, if it’s on a Thursday that’s fine too, but they want the January 1 evening tradition to become a wrestling holiday tradition.
“I presume it will keep going. But yes, there was discussion of the date (changing), and that’s probably why they’ve delayed ticket sales.”
WWE’s next premium live event will be Crown Jewel, which will air from Saudi Arabia on November 5. We will have to wait and see how that event will turn out to be.
